Gordon/Rasmus is basically a wash at this point. I like Colby more but he doesn't get it done.

Joyce for Sandoval is heavily against you, despite your hopes on Sandoval's triumphant return.

Jurrjens for Marcum is heavily in your favor, K's being the major factor.



In total, the deal is fair, but you can do better. You aren't selling high enough on JJ and Joyce. I think you should, and this deal is close, I would just like to see Sandoval or Rasmus upgraded or combined into one much better player.

Thanks for the help on mine and I agree with poster above. If you're looking for an upgrade in pitching and a downgrade in batting, go for it.

I see Marcum as a solid upgrade to Jair but the part of the trade I'm not fond of is getting Rasmus. TLR was once again messing with his PT. Colby caught a recent reprieve with Holiday and now Craig going down so Tony has to play him. Gordon or Joyce are going to play everynight unlike Rasmus. I like Rasmus, he is the best younger player on that club but Tony seems bent on stunting his growth or worse yet chasing him out of town. After all TLR has his genius reputation to uphold. :-t

Alright I have finally worked out a counter-offer without Jair in it.

My Gordon/Joyce/Marmol/Vogelsong for his Marcum/Rasmus/Sandoval


do you think this is a better deal for me now?

I think the pitchers or more or a less a wash. They both have their pros/cons....and some will like JJ....others will like Marcum (for the record, i like Marcum better, but it's close).....but really they are both solid #2 fantasy pitchers.

So the trade really comes down to the hitters.

I think Joyce is probably the best hitter in the deal (I rank Marcum as the best player in the deal). But it really comes down to how you rate Pablo. If you are in the camp that thinks he will be back in a week or two and pick up hitting just like he was in April, then the deal is great for you.

If you are concerned that Pablo will revert to last season's suck-itude (yeah...its a word).....then it is probably safer to pass on the trade.

As a Giants fan, I have not heard any news that Pablo has packed on any pounds....so i am will to be bullish on Pablo and recommend the deal............

.....but, really, this is a very even trade.....with equal risk/reward on both sides.

If you like Pablo, go for it......................if Pablo scares you, pass


I agree 100%.
