Upton for Price and others

Postby warner892001 » Thu Mar 15, 2012 11:07 am

Got a team that me and my friend inherited.
The Roster is :

Napoli
Dunn
Zobrist
Reynolds
Peralta
Upton
Cuddyer
Bonifacio
Ortiz
Crisp
Maybin
Cespedes
Belt

Buehrle
Earvin Santana
Nolasco
Jurrjens
Bedard
Madson
Dave Robertson
Thornton
Clippard
Bauer
Cole
Pomeranz
Nicasion
Shelby Miller

Anyhow- the trade offer

Zobrist, Upton, Bonifacio for Wieters, LoMo, Lorenzo Cain and David Price

I personally like the deal because we get a stud pitcher back. We were looking to move Napoli so Wieters can fill in there.

Your thoughts?

Which Upton? And what kind of league with how many teams? If it is Justin, then probably no. If it is BJ then heck yes. I am assuming Justin at which point I don't think you are getting enough in return.

I'd do it for sure. Price and Wieters still have some upside considering their age. Morrison and Cain on top of that make it an easy choice.

Price > BJ Upton
Wieters = Zobrist
Lomo + Cain > Bonifacio
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Even better. I like Ethier more than Cain.

Ethier is a much better option than Cain- he's undervalued this year, IMO, because of his injury last year.

Cain's basically replacement-level in a 10-team league for 2012, and I don't think he's got enough of a pedigree to justify stashing for the future. Remember, this guy is turning 26 in April and he hasn't had anything approaching a full season in the majors yet. I'd much rather go for a high-upside option at that spot.
