R.Howard and J.Sanchez for J.Werth and T.Hanson

Postby V » Wed Jun 08, 2011 8:57 am

I'm in first place with minimal needs. I've been trying to sell high on Berkman or make a 3 for 1 or 2 for 1 type deal to free some roster space.

This doesn't really do that, but I'm a Sanchez fan (obviously, he's not going to help the WHIP, but the Ks are nice), and Howard should be easier to package in a 2 for 1 type deal with someone who needs HRs/RBIs than Werth (who I've shopped, but no one is a believer).

:shrug: Seems like a slight downgrade on SP for a slight upgrade on offense. Ok deal?

My team:
C: J.P. Arencibia
1B: Kevin Youkilis
2B: Neil Walker
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Jhonny Peralta
IF: Lance Berkman
OF: Curtis Granderson
OF: Jayson Werth
OF: Matt Joyce
OF: Michael Bourn
U: David Ortiz
BN: Grady Sizemore

SP: CC Sabathia
SP: Tommy Hanson
SP: Cole Hamels
RP: Chris Perez
RP: John Axford
P: David Price
P: Josh Beckett
P: Mark Melancon
P: Andrew Bailey
BN: Mat Latos
BN: Eric Bedard

Yeah, I like it. No matter what happens, I don't think you'll lose big, Howard would definitely be easier to trade, and I've never been a big fan of Werth's. I like Sanchez a lot, too, as you can tell from the post of mine you helped on. Thanks for that.

i like this deal put ryan howard at your infeild then move berkman to the outfeild

i also think trying to find someone who will pay for berkman is important as for him doing this for the whole year doesnt look like it is gonna happen and i was saying sell 3 weeks ago


and j werth isnt helping your team at all and you no ryan howard is gonna be big all year long he always is not as great as he was in 05-08

the pitching is hansons worth more right now but you get the better batter and i think that always wins out and sanchez isnt terrible and can have extremely good nights himself

I like the Howard side as well... Sanchez is pitching very well & does not show any sign of slowing down.

Ok do not go crazy. Your OF is already weak enough but sliding Berkman there solidifies it and Howard is a huge upgrade. You have the pitching to deal Hanson and your getting back a comparative option. Do the deal and do not look back. Jayson just isn't worth it anymore.
