Big NO to this offer, right?

Postby nyr199435 » Thu Mar 29, 2012 11:15 am

Team at bottom. Stats below:
Batters:
1B: 1 point
2B: 2
3B: 3
HR: 4
RBI: 1
SB: 2
CS: -2
BB: 1
IBB: 1
K: -1
GIDP: -4
CYC: 4
SLAM: 5

Pitchers:
IP: 1
W: 7
L: -7
CG: 4.5
SHO: 9
SV: 7
ER: -1
BB: -1
IBB: -1
K: 0.5
HLD: 4
NH: 18
PG: 27
QS: 3.5
BSV: -7

Here was the offer:
I get: Miguel Cabrera, Yunel Escobar, Jeff Francouer, JJ Putz
I give: Freddie Freeman, Robinson Cano, Adam Wainright

I'm thinking this is an easy one to say no to, right? Miggy's a big-name player, but Cano's the ONLY 2B I have, and the best in the game. And if Wainwright gets to 2010 form, he's like having another Verlander.

C: Jesus Montero
1B: Freddie Freeman
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: David Wright
SS: Starlin Castro
OF: Carl Crawford

BN: Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Yoenis Cespedes, Matt Joyce

SP: Justin Verlander, Matt Moore, Adam Wainwright, Jon Lester, Johan Santana, Ivan Nova, Clay Buchholz, Julio Teheran

Yep not a trade I would do. Cabrera is nice but nothing else really helps you while you create too many holes with what you give up.

You just can't trade a Cano, so valuable at 2B. Between Freeman and Davis you should be decent at 1B. And Wainwright has looked very good in spring training.

Ian Kinsler, so I'm guessing I can't get him instead of two of the other guys. If I could I would probably do it. Like it were Miggy, Kinsler, and Putz for Freeman, Wainwright, and Cano I'd think about it.
