Postby dominicfaiola » Wed Apr 25, 2012 1:08 pm

I told him no and he has been trying to make a deal since.

My Roster:
C Soto
1B Tex
2b Roberts
SS Scutaro
3b Lawrie
OF Stanton Cespedes Cruz
Util Ortiz
Bench Lind
DL Utley C. Young

My Pitching consists of: Lincy, Hamels, Strasburg, Sale, Scherzer, Santiago, Betancourt

His Team
C Ruiz
1b Laroche
2b Pedroia
SS Cabrera
3b Aramis
OF Pence LoMo Mccutch

His Pitching consists of: Lester, Ubaldo, Papelbon, Clippard, Danks, Peavy

I would love to improve my MI in a deal and this might be the best time to do so. Any suggestions?

why?
ortiz his hitting over .400 right now and usually picks it up in the middle of june, i could see him putting up big numbers this year.
Cruz is in the best lineup in baseball batting 6th will get plenty of RBI chances.
Lincy your really selling low i feel.

I would do it. McCutchen and Pedoria are the best 2 players involved in the deal. Cruz is a safe bet for under 450 AB's, Ortiz is looking good but I don't think he'll keep it up, and I have no faith in Lincecum being a top 10 pitcher this year. Roberts is just a throw in.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I would make that deal as well. As the above said, you are getting the two best players in the deal and hoping Cruz stays healthy all year is a pipe dream.

I love that deal for you. Cruz never stays healthy, I don't trust Timmy anymore and Roberts is just a throw in. If you think you can give up a lesser player than Cruz and still get the deal done then go ahead, but I would do it as is. Also as an Ortiz owner I am expecting a big season you are definitely selling high there which doesn't hurt.

So he offered this to me earlier today.

I get:
Cutch
Pedroia

I give:
Lincy
Cruz
Ortiz
Lind
Roberts
Scutaro

I get a completely upgraded MI but is what I give worth it?

I liked the previous deal. This one basically throws in Asdrubal for Scutaro and Lind. Hell yeah I'd take it.

Honestly, I like it. You're getting the two best players in the trade and Lincecum's velocity scares me right now.
