Jay Bruce for Dan Haren **WHIR**

Postby javens » Mon Mar 26, 2012 1:49 pm

Looking to trade my Jay Bruce for his Dan Haren. Here's my roster.

C Carlos Santana, Cle C, 1B
1B Albert Pujols, LAA 1B
2B Ben Zobrist, TB 2B, OF
3B Mark Reynolds, Bal 3B, 1B
SS Jose Reyes, Mia SS
OF Jay Bruce, Cin OF
OF Desmond Jennings, TB OF
OF Jason Heyward, Atl OF
UTIL Ike Davis, NYM 1B
UTIL Nick Markakis, Bal OF
Bench Lucas Duda, NYM 1B, OF
Bench Adam Dunn, CWS 1B, DH

SP Felix Hernandez, Sea SP
SP Mat Latos, Cin SP
SP Daniel Hudson, Ari SP
SP Gio Gonzalez, Wsh SP
RP Carlos Marmol, ChC RP
RP Joe Nathan, Tex RP Draft
Bench Justin Masterson, Cle SP

Obviously, I'm a little heavy on the offensive side. I'm hoping he would go for Jay Bruce for Danny Haren straight up, but I would definitely throw in Adam Dunn if it gets the deal done. His team is stacked with pitching but has literally no power (5 leadoff hitters).

So do I trade Jay Bruce and possibly Adam Dunn for Dan Haren?

if he's power deficient i'd be trying for more then Haren. Then again I'd be 100% ok w/ that deal too. You are stacked at HR so you should be in good shape.

i think you lose a little more than you gain in this trade see if he'll add in a 2b so you can play zobrist in the position bruce leaves open and you'll have a backup 2b for when zobrist is off

I wouldn't give up both for Haren. I would be reluctant, but I would part with Bruce for him straight up. Your offense has the potential to put up some big power numbers, but don't get over confident.

I wouldn't. You have a pretty good sp squad and I think Bruce is going to hit close to 40 this year.

I am not sure you need to to do that trade as I think you have a pretty good staff already. While Bruce is inconsistent to say the least, at the end of the year he will have solid numbers again. I think it is a fair trade if you feel like you need to make a move, so don't feel like you are giving up too much, Haren is going to be awesome this year in that division with the hitters in that lineup.


help me?

I love the one-for-one for you, but I would not shop the 2 for 1 unless you absolutely have to.

I'd pull the trigger on Haren for Bruce straight up. Haren has strong 1st half numbers and with the added offense Pujols will bring Haren looks even more appealing IMO. You have enough offense to offset the production you'll lose by moving Bruce.
