Trade Evaluation Cargo/Cliff Lee/Granderson

Postby germani40 » Sat Mar 10, 2012 1:15 pm

I am on the border of being a playoff team. 6 make it I have myself in the 5-7 range. Its a keeper league with 16 players kept. Last year I was an expansion team so I didnt have a "stud" to build my team around. I am thinking about making a move that would hurt me for this season but in the future would help me significantly I think. I would get significantly younger but I am also getting rid of 2 studs and a quality 2nd baseman in Utley. Is this a trade worth doing. We keep players forever at no cost.


I give
Cliff Lee
Curtis Granderson
Chase Utley

I get
Carlos Gonzalez
Bryce Harper
Keep
C Napoli
1 Butler/Davis/Hosmer/Dunn
2 Young/Utley/Zobrist
3 Moustakas
SS Bonifacio/E Cabrera
OF Grandy/Choo/Reddick/Kubel
SP Anderson/C Lee/Oswalt
Haren/Moore/A Sanchez
RP Soriano/Myers/Johnson/Aceves/Parnell

Not a fan at all, you're giving up way too much for a guy who hasn't even played in the majors. A prospect is still just a prospect.

I wouldn't do this deal either. I am hugely high on Harper, but I am down on CarGo so it cancels it out. Lee is going to be a stud for the next few years even with his age, Granderson may fall off some, but hitting in the Yankee Stadium bandbox is going to help him crush, and Utley is worth holding onto in case he captures some of what he had.

Still no. Very much no.

If you feel like you absolutely must deal proven studs for prospects, you should be getting a handful of prospects back. As much hype as there is with Harper, he may never be as good as Granderson is right now.

No to the first deal, and no to the next deal,

Harper is still a younf prospect, he should hold any value like this/.
