What is james shields worth in a trade? Or gio gonzalez?

Postby Trooper » Wed Jul 20, 2011 4:18 am

I think shields regresses in the second half so I have been trying to deal him...I asked this on a different forum and they said A-Gon, but I know thats BS lol so what is a good trade to offer? I offered one-for-ones for teixeira and carlos gonzalez but got shot down, so i might have to go lower. how would you value shields?

Also, I don't want to kill my pitching though so I may shop gio instead...what is he worth?

Thanks! :D

Guys like Shields/Gonzalez - who are having fantastic years after 1 or more ho-hum years usually sit lower in the pecking order than the stable year-in year-out guys. Naturally, you can always try for anyone and try to open a line of communication with a particular owner. If not, you might as well target similar guys who are having fantastic years like Asdrubal Cabrera.

Looks to be a pretty good water line for a guy like Shields if dealing with an seasoned partner. You might get a better payout from someone less experienced as his current numbers are awesome. I think you were probably over-reaching shooting for Tex or CarGo but it never hurts to try.

Depending on your posistional needs here are some players I see as reasonable value for Shields:
(these I see as reasonable but I'd shoot higher first)
C - V-Mart Santana
1B - Lind Gaby Butler
2B - Zobrist Phillips Uggla
3B - Sandoval Aramis Gordon
SS - Castro Rollins Alexei
OF - Victorino CBYoung Werth Lind AdJones Ichiro Bourn
RP - Wilson Kimbrel Soria Paps

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

Gio is only 25 and had a solid overall season last year and dominant second half. He was a top prospect when he came up and just had to get his bearings a bit. He will sustain his production and be a legit ace for years to come. When it comes to trade value, I would certainly say he should have more than Shields but he probably doesn't, making him the wrong guy to trade. I would shop Shields and shoot very high, people are believing in him and you need to capitalize NOW.

Shields is also a few years older. Trade him for any upgrade you can.

C-McCann, Vmart
1b-Konerko, Lind, Freeman, Trumbo, Howard in a stretch
2b-Uggla, Kinsler
3b-Aramis, maybe Longoria (buy low)
SS-Castro, A. Cabrera
OF-Lind, Cruz types
