Need a Catcher- What should I trade for Avila? WHIR

Postby eromano33 » Sat Jul 16, 2011 3:10 pm

I was offered:
I give up:
Sandoval
Arencibia
Hernandez

I get:
Avila
Danny Valencia
Logan Morrison

and I didn't think that trade was any good, So i rejected it. But I do need to improve catcher and want Avila. The owner said he wants a "big name" in return for Alex. What should I offer? What is fair and what's too much?



Here's what i've got right now:

C: JP Arencibia
1B: Lance Berkman
2B: Robinson Cano
SS: Hanley Ramirez
3B: Pablo Sandoval
OF: Nelson Cruz
OF: Andrew McCutchen
OF: Michael Bourn
UTIL: Mike Stanton
UTIL: Travis Snider
BN: Mark Trumbo

SP: Tommy Hanson
SP: Ubaldo Jimenez
RP: Brian Wilson
RP: Sergio Santos
P: Brandon Beachy
P: David Hernandez
P: Mike Adams
P: Bobby Parnell
BN: Bud Norris
BN: Madison Bumgarner
BN: Bartolo Colon
BN: Yovani Gallardo

I would've passed also.

Your team looks to be in great shape. The dropoff from Panda to Casilla is too much.

Hernandez is a stud and will provide you more saves in the upcoming weeks.

I dropped Arencibia for Wilson Ramos. Think he'll rival Avila in 2nd half value? Also, do you think Hernandez will keep the closer role ?

This. Tell the other guy to get over himself. There isn't a catcher out there who is worth a "big name," save perhaps McCann.

Alex Avila is coming back down to earth a tad, and Wilson Ramos looks good for the second half for sure. More time behind the plate with Pudge hurt, and he's raking.

And, the previous poster is right. No catcher is worth a "big name". I don't even know if McCann can pull one in.

I think you're in great shape.
