Jay Bruce or Chris B. Young ROS? WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Sat Aug 13, 2011 3:30 pm

I have an opportunity to trade for Jay Bruce before the trade deadline tonight in our league. I am curious if he is much of an upgrade from Chris Young. I know Young has been in a slump lately but he is on a playoff team and is batting 4th or 5th in the lineup. He is capable of putting up similar power numbers down the stretch and SB's.

But all the teams the Reds are playing in September are teams that Bruce has smashed this season. So I am torn here.

Bruce could be kept in the 3rd round, and Chris Young could be kept in the 8th round, which I haven't decided if I would do or not yet.



12 Team H2H. We Keep 6 Players Season to Season for 3 years

Stat Cats: R-HR-RBI-SB-K-TB-AVG-OBP IP-W-L-SV-BB-K-ERA-WHIP
In parentheses are the rounds they can be kept in next season, everyone else wouldn't be keepable imo due to our league rules.

C- Mike Napoli
1B- Miguel Cabrera
2B- Dan Uggla
3B- David Wright
SS- Yuniesky Betancourt
OF- Chris Young (8th)
OF- Matt Holliday
OF- Drew Stubbs
Util- Michael Morse (7th but could fall if he stops producing)
DL - Jose Reyes
DL - Adrian Beltre


SP- CC Sabathia
Trevor Cahill (13th)
Shaun Marcum
Freddy Garcia
Johnny Cueto (17th)
Mike Minor (streaming)
Bud Norris (21st)
John Danks (13th)
Brandon Beachy (19th)
RP- Brian Wilson
RP-Jose Valverde
RP-Andrew Bailey

my opinion is that while stats may be somewhat similar, I like Bruce's upside even if not keeper eligible.

Plus he's got two first names!

Bruce has more upside and had picked it up of late. I'd deal for him.

Help me?

My bad Bruce could be kept in the 3rd round next year. Which I still dont think I would do.

Would y'all want to keep Chris Young in the 8th tho?

And would you make the trade even if it means I would have to give up Chris Young and a top 10 pick in next year's draft?

How far back are you? I'm not sure I'd keep chris young regardless but I'd be wary of giving up a good pick unless you can get some good traction for this season.

I left you a PM followup.

Well I am in first, but will possibly be 2nd after this week because of all my injuries. I feel like I have a very good shot of winning it all this year since I just acquired Chris Carpenter.


Here is the deal on the table, and the other team said he would accept:

My Chris Young and a 10th round pick for his Jay Bruce and a 15th round pick


should I accept?

Sorry it got changed since his 14th round pick is included in a pending trade.

It's now:

My Chris Young and a 10th round pick for his Jay Bruce and a 15th round pick

basically the same but still wanting to make sure it's a good deal for me.

Go Bruce, Young hasn't put it together for back to back seasons very often and Bruce has the easiest hitters schedule the rest of the way and is a big time second half hitter. Won't get huge value next year in the third round put Young might only perform like a 7th rounder and Bruce could easily perform like a third rounder if not a 2nd

I hate to say it because I drafted Chris Young and I like him but I would probably go with the Bruce side. He's got more pop potential than Young even though they might end with a close amount of HRs..In the end I think you slightly win with this, and it should help for the stretch run, so I would do it and not worry so much about the picks. Thanks for your help on mine!
