Thanks for your help so far though.


WOW :-?

Try to offer the new Gallardo owner your Lincecum, See if he bites. At those prices, and Lince's declining numbers, I'd be more than happy with Gallardo.

In the same league I have just been offered Matt Holliday(34) and Randy Wolf(3) for my Michael Bourn(24) and Ted Lilly(12),


I am thinking no but just thought I would get a few opinions. Thanks and leave your links.

Also in same league I have been offered Jimmy Rollins(23) for my Daniel Hudson(15). NO, right? He doesn't have much offense other than Beltran at 12 bucks and Neil Walker at 16 dollars. Just keep Hudson right or should I make a move for one of these guys to bolster my offense?

This one is closer than it looks IMO. You shed the overpriced Lilly contract to make room for Holliday. Your SP quality decreases a tad, but your hitting goes up a lot overall from Bourn to Holliday (with a net cost of $1). Problem is, losing Bourn and your steals would drop dramatically. And lacking other speedsters, you should probably hang onto him.

You do need help hitting wise, but this is an overpay IMO. You certainly have the pitching to part with, but I'd hold out for a Rollins + Beltran sort of deal.

This guy is desperate for pitching. Should I even attempt to offer the crazy deal of Hudson for Rollins AND Beltran?

I agree with SPQR. I would add that I might be tempted to do the Holliday deal anyway IF and only IF you think you can grab a Dee Gordon/Ben Revere type early in the season/draft. And to be honest, I think you could.

Or I could offer him McGehee(20) and Hudson(15) for Rollins(23) and Beltran(12) a totally even offer as far as money goes. I just can't part with Bourn I don't think. He is so important for steals. He saved my ass last year. If you guys think I should do the Holliday deal please leave some reasons and if I should keep Wolf if I do it. Thanks guys.

Thats a terrible deal. Hudson is young stud whos proven he can be very valuable in every category except strikeouts (although he had a very high swinging strike percentage last year so I predict them increasing). It mkaes no sense to deal him for two players way past their prime

I would certainly make that deal if it leads to getting McGehee off of your roster.

True, both Rollins and Beltran are past their prime, but they should provide solid hitting stats in 2012 (based on their position and the depth of the league). Hudson has good long term potential, but he also threw a boat load of innings this past year, including the playoffs. I don't like dramatic IP spikes on young arms. Red flag for me.
