John Danks/Bud Norris for Romero or Scherzer? WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Fri Jul 22, 2011 8:40 pm

Trying to decide if I should attempt to trade Bud Norris or John Danks.
So who do you think will be better the ROS?

EDIT: Now I am offering Danks/Norris for Scherzer or Romero. Would you make this trade and which one would you take?

Trade A: Danks/Norris for Scherzer
Trade B: Danks/Norris for Romero

I'd try and hang on to Norris. I'm not sure how much trade value Danks has, but if it were me I'd be trying to keep Norris. I know he's on a crappy team, but he averages at least one K per inning and is a better pitcher than his record indicates.

Yeah I think I'd go with Norris, at least he's reliable for K's. Who knows what you'll get with Danks.

Lend a hand?

Going against the grain apparently... but I love Danks and b4 his rough start this year this wouldn't even be a question. Norris is def nice but I think u gotta go w/the track record and stronger offense here. Thnx for the help on mine.

I agree with this side of the equation...

I like Danks. I grabbed Danks when he was losing bad. Then he reeled off 3 straight wins for my team. Only reason I dropped him is he went on the DL.

While I don't particularly like Danks' offense this year, I dislike Norris' more. That and I usually give the edge to lefties with similar quality stuff over righties.

Hang on to Danks over Norris. :-)

Both get lousy run support. But I feel like Danks is due. Norrisnalways seems to have the meltdown inning.

Thanks for the help on mine! :)

Danks on the WS team in general is so unpredictable that I've never felt comfortable with a WS pitcher for ROS is any situation. (They get added and dropped again every week in my league...)

Norris has been extremely productive in the K department, and will do well for you. You will have to sit him against juggernauts, but that's fine for a pitcher who was WW fodder to start the season. Yes, he may hurts in wins and have meltdown innings, but at least he has one reliable cat. Danks has none.

I like Danks and Norris scares me, but Norris produces better. (I traded Norris away in June.)

Go Norris. ;-D

I personally like Danks more and I think the Sox will get much more wins from now on. If you need Ks I'd go with Norris, otherwise stick with Danks. Plus, I think you can get more trade value for Norris.

What about if I offer John Danks and Bud Norris for Ricky Romero? Do y'all think this would be a good trade for me?

or should I go for Max Scherzer?
