Trade for Kendrys Morales, WHIR,LL

Postby KaPluie » Mon Mar 12, 2012 12:01 pm

I was offered Morales for my Delmon Young. I'm actually really high on Young this year, batting behind Prince, however Morales has more proven upside, but will have to work his way back from an injury. What do you think?

I'd take my chances on Kendrys. I am not high on Delmon at all.

I think your lineup is steady enough to take a chance on Morales. Remember, he's batting behind Pujols. As long as he doesn't jump on home plate again, he should be better than Young in batting average and most other peripherals.

Yes you take Kendrys. I would thin flip one of your extra 3b for a stud SS or catcher upgrade and your set.

If I had not seen your lineup I would have said no. Fortunatley you can do without Young so I would jump on this offer.

I wouldnt've drafted Delmon in the first place. When his name even appears on my board of available OF'ers I had better have my starters picked by then. It's all upside from there. Morales is a great pickup right now.

Young was my last pick in the draft, but I like his upside hitting behind Fielder. He also looked very good last year when he joined the Tigers, and was a major contributor in the playoffs. I think he's a pretty good sleeper pick. But... Morales has proven power when he's on, so I made the trade. I think a proven guy is better than a flyer at this point, even with the injury concern.

Thanks everyone for the help!
