Is A-Ram Aramis or Alexei Ramirez? It almost doesn't even matter...I'd still do it I think. CarGo is the best talent in this trade by a long shot, and if it's Aramis, that only makes this trade a lot better.

Its Aramis not Alexie, the trade would basically be cargo/aramis for cutch/a-rod because the league is so deep that I highly doubt jones or heyward will make it off the bench

Wow, never seen someone I disagree with so much--interesting. If it's Aramis, then the original poster is literally improving in every single scenario.


CarGo is going to go 30-20 this year with a batting average over .310. McCutchen does not have the power or the batting average.

Aramis is going to outperform A-Rod in just about every scenario except steals. A-Rod might get 5, while A-Ram probably won't even attempt 1, haha.

And Heyward has tons of potential, but I still don't think this year will be his year, whereas Adam Jones is a 20-20 threat on an underrated team.

Aram better then arod? That's a joke. When was the last time Aram hit 30 or had 100 rbis? Arod also bats between cano and tex. arod is a big upgrade from Aram. Idk about 30-30 for cargo anymore. I see 20-20 just like mccutch.

I would do this deal.

I really like Cargo this year. He is the best player in the deal. Cargo will best McCutchen in the counting stats, RBIs and Runs due to his team and park. Will probably best him in BA and HR as well. McCutchen will obviously be better in SBs.

I see A Ram and A Rod as near equals. A Rod probably gets the slight nod again due to counting stats. Both injury risks, so who knows?

Heyward vs. Jones. If you go by whats transpired this spring, then its Jones. Heyward has the better upside. Its a risk reward choice. Jones safer, but with less upside.

Please help with mine.

I like the deal. It is close because I think Heyward could have a very good year but getting Cargo makes the deal more in your favor.
