My A-Rod for CC Sabathia WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Jul 18, 2011 1:25 pm

I feel I need one more shut-down SP to be a dominant force down the stretch. The guy who has CC is out of the running for the playoffs and he has Longoria, who is in his last keeper year. I have A-Rod but don't plan on keeping him. Should I trade A-Rod for Sabathia or maybe do A-Rod and Gallardo for Longoria and CC?

If you can do the 2nd trade with Longoria, then absolutely do that deal. If not, i would probably do the 1-1 deal as well. I just worry that your offense will suffer but with Arod out for 6 weeks, losing him won't hurt you that much.

Yeah if you can do that 2 for 2 deal you definitely should first, but if not I like CC for Arod too.

lend a hand?

If you can get Longo/Sabathia then I would jumped all over that. Fallback plan of 1 for 1 is great too.

Sorry for the update guys ... he won't deal CC ... wants him as a keeper.

He has Chris Carpenter. Any ideas? Zimmermann and Delmon Young? Konerko?

If he'll do Longoria and Carpenter I would do it.
