LoMo for Rollins? I already have Dee Gordon...

Postby thatonekid343 » Thu Mar 22, 2012 1:41 am

*12 TEAM HEAD-TO-HEAD 7X7*
Do I do this trade? Getting rid of LoMo, my UTIL, but I also have Rios and Bourjos. If I get Rollins, Dee goes to the bench. Should I be worried about Dee and pull the trigger on this trade? Is Dee gonna kill me in AVG, OPS, RBI, TB, HR that bad that I need to trade for Rollins?

I would do the trade and maybe think about putting Gordon in the UTIL spot for steals.

I would do it.
I like Bourjos over LoMo anyways.
Gordon only provides sb, maybe runs.
I would rather start Rollins and use Bourjos.

Morrison straight across for Rollins? Get it done, don't look back.

You had a very strange draft order though. Votto then stanton then Uggla?

Yeah, I picked #11. Votto fell somehow. I then went onto make probably the dumbest selection in round 2. Since I am all in Giancarlo this year, I thought, "Heck, I'm taking him no matter what in the 2nd." Then next thing you know at pick #14, I am staring down CARLOS GONZALEZ. And I go with Giancarlo anyways, and I already know it's gonna be something I regret all season. And as for Uggla...he's just a guy I had to have, simple as that.

On another note...I've been offered Pujols, Swisher for Votto, Pence. I AM A HUGE ANGELS FAN. Would it be a mistake on my part to buy into my homerism and do it? BTW, his OF is Stubbs, Markakis, Swisher...so he is looking to desperately trade for a stable outfielder and is looking to take advantage of my homerism. Another BTW, he took Pujols #1.

Your draft makes a bit more sense now with the explanation. I completely understand picking players we like. Following your favorites makes the game that much better, and when someone else has your favorite and they beat you using them it sucks.

About the trade, I don't think you can do it. Even though votto for pujols is a great trade, pence for swisher really blows. Can he replace swisher with someone more comparable?

His team is: McCann, Pujols, Kinsler, Reyes, Youk, Stubs, Markakis, Swisher, Morales, Ike Davis, Josh Johnson, Matt Cain, Lester, D. Hudson, Marmol, Broxton, Buchholz, Holland, Chris Perez, Nova. Only other player I can think of is Morales, so I can just put him at UTIL and Bourjos or Rios at #3 OF.

I've been trying to think how you could get pujols, and I know you love the angels.

Send: Votto, Pence, Beachy

Receive: Pujols, Stubbs, Cain
He will probably reject that, then I would consider
Receive: Pujols, Swisher, Cain


Get some other opinions too if you consider trying the second trade.

Votto, Pence, Beachy ;-D ;-D
Your team is solid. I would probably get rid of Rios for another SP what is available....
