Orlando Hudson, Collmeter for Uggla?WHIR

Postby hockeykidb3 » Wed Aug 31, 2011 12:56 am

The team who is giving up Uggla in this deal has 3 good 2b including Uggla, Zobrist, and Espinosa, Espinosa is on teh bench right now so he would replace Uggla, also O-dog has been hot for a while now and could be a good replacement, meanwhile Collmeter has been kind of a sleeper this year, but has a good era and whip and is barely below uggla on the player rater for ESPN, Collmeter right now is at 4.34 where Uggla is 4.57
is this enough to get Uggla?

Most would want more than that for Uggla but I would certainly try it and see if he bites.

Help me please?

considering the replacement i would have for uggla in espinosa, i would accept this deal, espinosa has 19 hr this year and has been a nice suprise, meanwhile i get O-dog who has been on fire and Collmeter can offer some good pitching help

I would definitely decline that offer. Uggla is worth way more the O-Dog and waiver wire-esque Collmeter. ;-D

espn's player rater would beg to differ, ppl get caught up in uggla's hot streak and forget about how he was considered one of the biggest busts of the year along with adam dunn in the first half

Uggla did have a rough start, no doubt. But this year will mark his 5th straight year with 30+ bombs. 6 years ago he had 27. He's a unique player for his position. Collmenter has had a nice year but overall he's just a guy (in my opinion). I'd rather take a flier on a different young pitcher. In your defense, he has been very good over his last 4 starts. But to counter your espn rating, he's only owned in 42% of all yahoo leagues. There's a reason for that. Plus O-Dog is almost done (mid thirties) and there are too many good young 2nd baseman in the league now. Dustin Ackley and Brett Lawrie are much better options. General Rule of Thumb for me: In a two player for one player trade... If I'm on the two player end, I better be getting A LOT. I hate watering down my team by trading better talent for multiple scrubs. These are just my thoughts (obviously) and take them as you will. Good luck! ;-D
