I have ARoid and I want to get my team ready for the playoffs. Would it be a wise move to offer him for David Wright? Wright looks pretty banged up for now but I like him better come August. ARod gets pulled a lot and misses games and has a nagging shoulder injury which may become serious and generaly has a lot of mileage which makes me nervous come playoff time. I'm already a lock for the playoffs so I can afford the time without a starting 3B (I'd roll Murphy out).
Should I make this offer straight up to the Wright owner?
12 Team H2H
C Posey (1B) 1B Butler 2B Pedroia SS Andrus 3B Prado (2B, OF) OF Harper, Heyward, Craig (1B) UTL Jennings SP Darvish, Latos, Cobb, Moore RP Balfour
B Burnett, Ross, Wood, Dickey, Porcello, Kennedy B Eaton
I would not do this move. Yes there are always concerns with ARod getting injured, but I would not want to go after a guy who is already injured especially since its a back injury. Besides his batting average was terrible before he got hurt.
Keep Arod. He should be very valuable in the fantasy playoffs especially since he will be on a team competing the whole season. The Mets could be out of playoff contention near the end of the regular season, the Yankees will definitely be in contention. Plus Wright has injuries of his own, we dont know when he will be back and how he'll play once he comes back. A Rod is producing, no need to trade him.
I'd go with Arod by a considerable amount. I'm surprised you would even think about this deal.
Arod this year: .295 average 13 homeruns 52 RBI.369 OBPS David before injury: .226 average 6 homeruns 18 RBI .337 OBPS
Plus look at stats from previous years. Ever since Wright has been in the league (since 2004), Arod has outproduced him in HRs and RBI except in 2008, where Wright had 21 more RBI, but less HRs. From Wright's numbers, you can see 1) he's hitting fewer and fewer homeruns and 2) he rarely hits homeruns with runners on base.
