Would you do this trade? (Involving Pujols!)

Postby celtics345 » Sat May 19, 2012 10:29 am

Would you guys do this trade...

I receive : Michael Young, Evan Longoria, Matt Garza & Santiago Casilla
I give up : Albert Pujols & Kendry Morales/Austin Jackson (Either one but probably Morales)

The players I'm getting would fit my team fairly nicely and I can easily fill the spots left by Pujols & Morales. This trade however is giving me fits, I can't decide. Should I 'give up' on Pujols and let him go or should I keep him and stick it out. On the other hand this guy's giving me pretty good talent, but the key is that Longoria won't be back till Mid-Late June & can I really trust if he'll be as good as before? Please help me out!! :-D

If I were giving up Morales? I would absolutely do this trade. You're getting back a good number of pieces (Casilla is a top 10 closer from here on out, Garza is a top 30 starter, and you're getting 2 hitters who are solid contributors) for nothing (Morales) and Pujols, who granted, is Albert Pujols, but you're selling at a fair price here. Could you get more? Possibly. I'd like to see maybe a slightly better starter than Garza coming back, but there is no need to get picky.


If you're dealing Austin Jackson...I'm not as enthused. I am high on Austin and think he's for real. You have to make sure you don't give him up in this deal.

Welcome to the Cafe!

I think I would do this trade. It is hard to get a player like Longoria because you don't know just when he will return or how we will perform when he does come back. The good thing is that Longoria's injury should effect him too much. Plus I am still worried about Pujols and you are getting enough talent to be able to wait it out until Longoria comes back.

Also only do this deal with Morales.

Thanks guys! I think i'm gonna go through with it, hopefully he takes Morales cause the original trade included Jackson, i'm really high on him too. I'll have to make a counter.
