We got into talking about him dealing Choo and Beachy, and just as a preliminary offer I offered Niemann and Pence, to see if he would bite. He really likes Pence this year. Really. Haha.
I also brought up trading him Hak-Ju Lee, since Alex Gonzalez is his only SS.
Anyways, he turned that down and said he wanted a better pitcher than Niemann, and maybe we could do a Pence/better pitcher than Niemann/Lee for Choo/Beachy/someone else.
I kinda wanna offer him something without Lee, just a straight Choo/Beachy for Pence/?... who would you guys suggest?
Maybe I'm a little hard on Choo, but his AVG dropped so much last year with him getting limited at bats, and Choos full 2010 stats arent better than pence's 2011 except for SB. And beachy the reason I have such a bad taste is because I picked him up late last year and I only remembered bad things. So I decided to run the numbers, in his last 3 months he had an ERA of 4.44 and ATL lost every single one of beachys sept starts (he was only credited with 1 loss).

Agreed. I don't think Choo is as big of a downgrade from Pence as they are being drafted this year. A healthy Choo could easily match Pence. Beachy will be a nice upgrade over either Danks or Dempster. Ask him if he'd go for either one. Leave Lee out of it.
