Trade Carl Crawford for 3 players?

Postby argh33 » Fri Mar 30, 2012 1:27 pm

I have Carl crawford who I do not need at all... another owner wants to give me Mark Trumbo, Josh Willingham, and Danny Espinosa for Carl Crawford. First question: is it a good deal?( i'm guessing YES!) Second question: i have to release two players other than crawford to make room, who do i drop???
My roster:
C Yadier molina
1B Carlos Lee
2B Ian Kinsler
3B Edwin Encarnacion
SS JJ Hardy
Lf Ryan Braun
CF Andrew McCutchen
RF Carlos Beltran
UTIL James Loney
UTIL Alexei Ramirez
Bench Ryan Howard
Bench Carl Crawford
Bench Adam Jones
Bench Brandon Belt

I am not trading Crawford for those 3. Espinsosa is borderline WW material. Willingham is at best a 4th OF in fantasy. And Trumbo is OK, but nothing special and may have his playing time cut some. And then you need to cut two players.. Crawford, even with the injury, should get you something better than that.

I would pass. The quality of players you will drop are the same as those you will get.

I think you can get more. I'm not high on Crawford but he should bring back more in trade than those 3.

How many teams?
Is it a keeper?
Put A Jones in UT, not Loney.
And having Alexei at UT is not good.

There are 11 teams total. not a keeper league.
I actually have J.J. Hardy in the UTIL spot right now.
