Cano Trade Proposal

Postby HennesseyGT » Tue Apr 17, 2012 12:34 pm

Standard 10-team H2H 6x6 - R, RBI, HR, SB, AVG, OPS; HR Allow, K, W, Saves, ERA, WHIP

My Current Roster:
C- Ramos
MI- Pedroia
MI - R. Weeks
CI - M. Young
CI - Beltre
OF - Braun
OF - Cruz
OF - A. Jones
UT - R. Zimmerman

BE: D. Gordon, K. Morales, Victorino, J. Montero

SP: Cain, Garza, A. Sanchez, Billingsley, Pineda
RP: Betancourt, Guerra, J. Johnson


Trade offer is:

I give: R. Zimmerman and R. Weeks

for

I get: Cano

Two Questions:
1. Is this overpaying for Cano?
2. Should I do it?

Basically, my thought process is that Cano would be an upgade over Weeks and I would slide Morales (or Victorino or D. Gordon) into my utility based on needs for the week. I would be hedging that that Morales will provide the same level of production as Zimmerman. And I would use the extra roster spot to grab a streaming WW pitcher.

I think I would do this one. I really do not like Zimmerman and I love Cano. Weeks is allright and I actually think he is a little under rated, however, Zimmerman straight up for Cano would be unfair, so this evens it out. Do it.

Help me out if you can: viewtopic.php?t=444420

i do this no questions asked.

cano is a top 5 hitter and give you a lil bit of everything.
He might even get his steals in double digits this year as the yankees look to steal more.

you have studs on your bench that can easily replace weeks.

gordon is going to steal 60 this year, morales can hit 30 and montero is just a hitting machine.

That's an overpay for me. I'd rather have Weeks and Zimmerman.

I also think it is overpaying, but I feel like it might be worth it if it improves my team. But what your saying is that you think the drop off from Zimmerman to Morales would outweigh the upgrade from Weeks to Cano?

Yes. The Zimmerman/Cano is higher risk due to injury but higher reward IMO.

ok i gotta agree with you there the zimmerman/weeks can be better then cano but look at his lineup, i think cano with any combo of gordon/morales/montero is better then zimmerman/weeks.
