Interesting Trade Proposal

Postby Shatner8 » Mon Jun 13, 2011 12:06 am

Hey guys,

I have been Offered Drew Stubbs/Mike Napoli in return for my Alexi Ogando/Miguel Olivo. Yadier Molina is also available as a FA at catcher so essentially it really comes down to Stubbs for Ogando. I am thinking of taking this because I am concerned Ogando gets shut down at some point this year. What do u guys think?

1B Albert Pujols
2B Chase Utley
3B Kevin Youkilis
SS Derek Jeter
IF Adam Dunn
IF Kelly Johnson

OF Colby Rasmus
OF Ben Zobrist
OF Alex Gordon
OF Logan Morrison
UTIL Michael Morse
Bench Dan Uggla
Bench Bobby Abreu
DL Ryan Zimmerman

P Heath Bell
P Jonathan Papelbon
P John Axford
P Alexi Ogando
P Zack Greinke
P Chad Billingsley
P Ian Kennedy
P Jake Peavy
P Erik Bedard

You definitely should do this deal. Ogando has been lights out, but he will get limited coming from the bullpen, so they will have to limit his innings, skip starts, or eventually shut him down.

That's an awesome deal, selling off Ogando at a very nice price. Olivo is hot now but it won't last, Napoli will outhit him in the 2nd half. Nice work!

Agreed with the rest. Napoli and Stubbs are both good, and as you said Ogando will be shut down and Olivo won't perform so well all year.

Good trade for you. ;-D

Thanks guys,

I went ahead and accepted the offer. I am now going to be a little thin at SP so I have a offers of Morse for Carpenter and K.Johnson for Oswalt out there but if neither of those go through I was going to drop a bat to pick up one of the available SP's.

The best available are

Lilly
Danks
Vogelsong
Collmenter
Gee
Wolf
Baker

I was thinking either Lilly or Danks but I wasnt sure who to drop.. I could also add a RP like Salas or Capps

After the trade my team will look like this:


C Mike Napoli
1B Albert Pujols
2B Chase Utley
3B Kevin Youkilis
SS Derek Jeter
IF Eric Hosmer
IF Kelly Johnson
OF Jay Bruce
OF Colby Rasmus
OF Ben Zobrist
OF Drew Stubbs
OF Logan Morrison
UTIL Michael Morse
Bench Dan Uggla
Bench Alex Gordon
Bench Adam Dunn
DL Ryan Zimmerman

P Heath Bell
P Jonathan Papelbon
P John Axford
P Yovani Gallardo
P Zack Greinke
P Chad Billingsley
P Ian Kennedy
P Bud Norris
P Erik Bedard
Bench Daniel Hudson

I don't like the Morse/Carpenter deal.... And Oswalt's K's are way down and hits are up. If Uggla was being Uggla, I would feel a little better about trading Johnson for him, but he's not. As for the pitchers on your wire, I would rather have Vogelsong, Collmenter, and Lilly, over Bedard..... I'll never trust him to stay healthy.
