My Hosmer For J.Garcia/Mark Reynolds(Or Carlos Lee)?

Postby Rmbxr9 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 3:32 pm

16 team points.

I've been trying to get another upper level SP, and I kind of think Jaime Garcia is going to be that this season.
My starters are Verlander, Haren, Hellickson, Bucholtz, Edwin Jackson

The only obvious problem with Mark Reynolds is we play -1 points per K.
Yahoo has Hosmer projected for 508 points, and Reynolds for 350.
Last year Reynolds had 380, Hosmer 446

I thinking about this... Because I want another SP
I can also counter, and ask for Carlos Lee instead of M.R, any better?

Your pitching is already better than your batting. I think that's a bad trade for you.

You should be looking to improve hitting rather than your pitching

No on Carlos Lee instead?

Carlos Lee is sneaky good in this league, because we play Ks, 2Bs, BBs

K -1
BB +0.5
1B +1.5
2B +2.5
3B +3
HR +4
RBI +1.5
R +1

Just straight up, I'm wondering how much better Hosmer is going to produce vs. Carlos Lee really.

Carlos Lee .275 Avg, 32 Doubles, 18 HR, 85 RBI, 75 Runs, 45 Walks, 60 Ks

Eric Hosmer .290, 35 Doubles, 24 HR, 90 RBI, 85 Runs, 50 Walks, 90 Ks?

I mean, it kind of feels like the downgrade there is worth a Jamie Garcia who could be 15-8 with 155 Ks

You also have to put in that hosmer didn't get call up untill late may/early June. And if you are going to trade hosmer you should get a way better starter then Garcia.

Too bad you don't have somone else that qualifies at 1b, that might make this trade tempting since Lee qualifies both at 1b and OF, but you don't.

I agree with the other posts, Hosmer is too much to give up for Garcia and Lee. I would recommend an upgrade at pitcher if you want to do this. I'm assuming Lee could not be upgraded unless of course the owner as another 1B.

Please help with mine.

I agree with you about Garcia but I think you are overpaying by a bit. Either look for a better player than Lee/Reynolds or add another player and upgrade that second part. If you could deal Markakis and get an upgrade with that second player, I would.
