Reynolds or Hosmer?

Postby pangbones » Thu Jun 30, 2011 10:50 am

I've been offered Hosmer, Adam Jones, and Chipper for Reynolds, C Carrasco,and Collmenter. The 2 pitchers are at the bottom of my depth chart. Reynolds is a solid backup to Zimmerman, who hasn't been able to stay healthy in his career. Hosmer and Jones would provide more depth. And the main reason I'm considering it, is because I can keep Hosmer as a rookie. My current rookie is Belt. What do u think?

C - V Mart
1B - Votto
2B - Kinsler
SS - A Ramirez
3B - Zimmerman
OF - Pence, Bourn Quentin
Util - Ortiz, Tex

Bench - Reynolds, Rios

DL - Crawford, Belt

SP - Lester, Cain, Marcum, J Chacin, J Zimmermann
RP - Axford, Hanrahan, Storen

Kuroda, Floyd, Collmenter, Nathan, Capps, Carrasco, T Hudson

10 Team, 6*6 (OBP and K's for hitters and L's for Pitchers), H2H, Keeper (3 players, at least 1 hitter and 1 pitcher)

First, Adam Jones or Andruw Jones?

It seems as if this trade included junk players to make it even...I don't really see why Collmenter and Chipper are involved. It really comes down to Hosmer and Ad. Jones for Reynolds and Carrassco. Your pitching can take a hit so I don't think this move will hurt you. Then again, your OF is already pretty good too.

I don't really see the point of this trade and how it would help your team. The only reason I could see is you're thinking about keeping Hosmer, but with only keeping 3 I don't see him anywhere near top 3 on your team.

My bad. That is Adam Jones not Andruw. And as I said in my original post, i can keep Hosmer as a rookie. I am allowed to keep one rookie in addition to my other 3 keepers. That is why I'm considering it. No one I'm giving up really touches my starting lineup. My concern is losing depth at 3b. Chipper will probably be dropped if I do this deal. Anyone else?

Adam Jones is the gem of this deal, and keeping Hosmer as a rookie is a great bonus. Collmenter's novelty is wearing off and I am not a Carrasco guy. Chipper is ok and Reynolds is too but you are winning everywhere else in this deal by a TON. Get this done ASAP.
