Morrison and Ramirez for Prado?

Postby KingOfSports » Mon May 30, 2011 8:11 pm

I need to improve my outfield, so I was going to offer Logan Morrison and Aramis Ramirez for Martin Prado. My team is below.


POSITION PLAYERS:
Catcher: Victor Martinez (DET)
First Base: Carlos Pena (CHC), Justin Smoak (SEA), Adam Lind (TOR)(DL15)
Second Base: Dustin Pedroia (BOS), Maicer Izturis (LAA)
Shortstop: Hanley Ramirez (FLA), Erick Aybar (LAA), Maicer Izturis (LAA)
Third Base: Aramis Ramirez (CHC), Maicer Izturis (LAA)
Outfield: Logan Morrison (FLA), Brett Gardner (NYY), Michael Bourn (HOU)

STARTING PITCHERS:
Jon Lester (BOS)
Justin Verlander (DET)
Rick Porcello (DET)
Josh Tomlin (CLE)
Bartolo Colon (NYY)
Zach Britton (BAL)
Jake Arrieta (BAL)
Jason Hammel (COL)
Erik Bedard (SEA)
Brandon Beachy (ATL) (DL15)
Homer Bailey (CIN) (DL15)

RELIEF PITCHERS:
Joakim Soria (KC)
Sergio Santos (CWS)
Joel Hanrahan (PIT)

Do you think this is a fair trade? I was considering also adding Soria before his blowup. I'll post his team if need be.

Yeah why not? Morrison has just as good talent as Prado, he just hasn't shown it yet because this is his first full year in the bigs. Ramirez isn't in the form he was in 06 but he has been solid and reliable his whole career when he's healthy.

Good trade.

Sorry I don't buy this move. Logan Morrison >= Prado, and you won't have a 3B once you do this trade. Izturis doesn't count.

This does not upgrade your OF and downgrades you IF. :-t
