I'm not really sold on Zimm (I need more then 1 good season sorry) and Heyward is still waaay unproven. Stras is the only player I really like that would be coming back to you. If it were my team, I would hold out for something better.


1 good season? You better look again.
4 years of at least 20 hrs. 2 years of at least 100 rbis.
I don't consider 20 HRs a good season for someone rated as high as Zimm (also he only broke 100 RBIs 1 time). He should be at least flirting with 30/100 every season to garner that much respect.

106 and 110.
You like Beltre so much, yet in 14 years, Beltre has had 90 rbis 3 times.
In 7 years, Ryan has had 90 rbis 3 times.

Let's look at 162 average in hrs and rbis

Wright 27/107
Zimmerman 25/96
Beltre 25/90

Now factor in Zimmerman is only 27, entering his prime.

Take the trade. Zimmerman and Strasburg might be a risk but you are getting younger and better. Take the risk.

Normally I agree with Hootie, but I do not like this deal and its not because the 'age' difference. What I do not like is that this move hurts your depth very bad. Your giving up an ace in Lee, a good young arm in Baker and that basically leaves you wtih no SP depth at all, and you don't have that to begin with. I mean your stashing Banuelos on your bench....Your team is built to win now and that's what I'd try to do. Don't mortgage a good setup for the present for the sake of the future. I like youth. If anything I'd be dealing Arod etc. You'll have Posey, Morales, etc next year so your offense will be insane again.
