Trying to trade Pujols - WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Sat Aug 06, 2011 9:09 pm

I'm thinking of countering a trade offer that is quite horrible with the following...

My - Pujols + Alexei Ramirez
for
His - Tulo + Cruz/Weeks

He also has ACab and Bautista and I have nothing but Lawrie or a WW to plug at second... I would really love to land a solid SS or 2B given Alexei Ram's poor performance. I'd be willing to move Pujols, but everyone seems to think I'm getting too little back whenever I post a trade. :-?

Good/Bad/Fair/Overasking?

Leave me a thought and I WHIR.

I'd say if Weeks wasn't hurt and performed like his first half self then this could be a very nice move and is a fair offer. But I just read he's still a long way away from coming back. I'd be too nervous getting him back to trade Pujols away.

I am ok with the deal. Like above would prefer something a little safer than Weeks but I am also ok with Cruz. It is not a great trade but it is a fair trade.

I wouldn't do it... but if you're insistant on upgrading at ss you're not going to get much better than tulo. tulo/cruz is an okay deal, tulo/weeks is a no thanks with the injury. It would be nice to see your entire linup too...

I would go with Tulo/Cruz due to Weeks injury. Not a good trade but its alright.

Tulo and Cruz for me. But I'm not enthused one way or the other. Do you have another quality 1b option just wondering? Need to see your roster. If you have another 1b I'd actually pull the trigger on that deal....
