Taking advantage of a newbie?

Postby Rally Cat » Wed Apr 25, 2012 6:44 am

Being new to FBB I seem to be getting lots of offers. I was offered Mark Trumbo and Daniel Hudson for my Ervin Santana and Brett Lawrie. I'm looking for pitching upgrades but I don't think losing Lawrie is worth Hudson. Santana in my opinion is just off to a rough start and will right the ship. Plus I've taken all the bad stuff with him. And I'm a little concerned about Hudson.

Depending on your lineup and your need for pitchers, this would be ok if Hudson wasn't hurt. Hudson is an upgrade over Santana though Lawrie is better than trumbo. But Hudson is on the dl with shoulder issues and they tend to last longer than anyone would like. I'd hold off at least until they have a better prognosis on his injury or try to get a better (healthy) pitcher in the deal

He has Cliff lee and I offered Jay Bruce and Santana.Thats when he came back with the Hudson offer. I told him I would take any outfielder he wanted to include. We have to do position for positon. Give an outfielder get one back.

Not a deal I would do. Trumbo's value is up in the air and Hudson is on the DL with shoulder problems and no time table for his return. I am not about to trade for either of those guys let alone giving up a player like Lawrie.
