Trade for Ogando?

Postby hockeykidb3 » Mon Aug 01, 2011 2:24 pm

My LM would not approve the following trade which I think is fair, this is a non-keeper categories league.

Matt Harrison, Desmond Jennings/ Alexi Ogando

I know Ogando has been one of the few nice suprises, but if you look at harrisson's numbers they are very close to Ogando's, Ogando has allowed only 1 less ER in 1/3 less innings than harrison, and has only one more win, one more CG, and has an ERA of 2.88, which is only .06 better than Harrisson's 2.94m meanwhile jennings is already owned in about 95% of ESPN leagues after only playing 9 games, and has 5 stolen bases.

Is there any reason this trade should not be approved? PLEASE LOOK AT HARRISON'S NUMBERS BEFORE ANSWERING

That trade should not have been vetoed. I only veto in my league for collusion anyway, but this trade is not bad at all.

Harrison does have very good numbers. I think the reason people look down on him is because: A.) No one knows who he is, and B.) His peripherals suggest a big downturn for the rest of the season. However......Ogando may decline as well! Not as much, but he is approaching unknown territory in his IP (that's for his career, even in the minors). However, Harrison + Jennings for Ogando is still not a bad trade.

What would your commish say if you showed him Harrison's numbers?

Also, what do you think of these offers? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=435887&p=3435902#p3435902

Thanks, the biggest downside of Harrison is he pitches in the best hitters park in baseball, but so does Ogando, so that doesn't factor into this trade
