What should I do with Chris B. Young? WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Thu Aug 11, 2011 4:09 pm

I'm in first place and losing this week since I have had been bitten by the injury bug. I'm starting to wonder if I should attempt to trade Chris Young or hold on tight and hope he turns it around by the end of the fantasy season? I'm a big fan of his and he has keeper value in my league so that is one of the things that is making me hesitant, but he is in a very big slump right now.

I was offered my Chris Young and a 3rd round pick for his Jay Bruce and a 19th round pick.
I dont like this deal at all since I hate having to give up an early draft pick. But this team is out of contention so I am considering either making a move for an OF'er or SP. What do you guys think I could use more?
Or does my team look good as is?

Here is how I would approach this...

Let's say Chris Young is a 12th round pick next season and Jay Bruce is a 4th round pick...If you are getting a 4th rd and 19th rd for a 3rd rd and a 12th rd...I would say you are getting screwed royally. If I were you...I would definitely go after Bruce, but offer him Young and a 4th round pick for Bruce and a 15 round pick...IMO that would fair.

Let me know you thoughts and I will try to help you more...

Thanks for your help...I do have one question...based on my team (us keeping 4 players per year), do you think I should trade away Hanson and Zimmerman for Longoria?

Chris Young would be a 8th round pick next season.
Do you think I need offense more or pitching though? I'm leaning towards thinking that I need pitching more.

Yeah I think you could definitely use someone else to complement CC...I think you give up too much for Bruce...

Young would be 8th round if you keep him correct? What happens if you dont? I dont think he would be selected in the 8th next season unless he shows more than he has lately...

what would be some options for upgrading pitching?

I was thinking about trying to trade for Hanson, Carpenter, Ervin Santana, or Tim Hudson.

Well Morse just got hit in the elbow and they are saying it could be serious. This probably changes things.

Should I attempt to trade my Chris Young, Morse, and Mike Minor for his Jay Bruce and Chris Carpenter or Jurrjens?

He is probably going to want a draft pick too unfortunately.

You talking about the Young, Morse, and Minor for Carpenter/Jurrjens and Jay Bruce? If so, would you ask for Carpenter or Jurrjens?

I say sit tight w/what you have... Bruce is plenty capable of his own slumps. I do think you should go after another starter, but I don't like either of those trades. Also... don't unload Morse just because he got hurt... dude has been a stud and you shouldn't give him away. Thnx for the help on mine.

fyi

Morse told MLB.com's Bill Ladson that he was diagnosed with a left elbow contusion after being hit by a pitch in Thursday's game.
Spin: Morse doesn't believe the injury is serious, and he is listed as day-to-day. Morse may be held out of a couple games until his shoulder feels better, but it looks like he will avoid what could have been an extended absence.
