Trade Reyes + Jennings for Granderson? Good Trade????

Postby cassplaya4 » Fri May 11, 2012 11:28 am

Should I trade Jose Reyes and Desmond Jennings for Curtis Granderson

I need OF badly as you can see.... Also this gives me an open roster spot when Gardner comes off the DL

C - Monetero
1B - Laroche
2B - Altuve
3B - Cabrera, Sandoval (DL)
SS - Reyes, Furcal
OF - Choo, Stubbs, Maybin, Jennings, Zobrist, Gardner (DL)

SP - Kershaw, Price, Lester, Garza, Lilly, H Alvarez
CP - Betancourt, Hanrahan, Rodney, Robertson, Sale, Downs

I dont think so. Its a pretty steep price, but Im more concerned with Furcal as the back up. I wouldnt count on him being productive all year. Id counter with something a bit lower and see what happens.

help?

No that's selling rock bottom on Reyes... and buying high on Granderson.

If you're going to trade a SS it should be Furcal.

I agree with trying Furcal first, but the Reyes brand may be what makes the deal happen. I'd still lean toward making the deal as-is if Furcal is out, because Granderson is great at poking balls out of RF at Yankee Stadium. And Reyes won't have as many steals (or even the few bonus HRs in that big park) as people think.

Any ideas for building my trade? ---> viewtopic.php?t=446727

Reyes is walking (10.4%) more than he's striking out (7%)... also his BABIP is a career low .252. Which is about 50 points below his career average. He's definitely not a guy you want to sell low on.
