Seeking advice on OF upgrade

Postby guyincognito » Thu May 24, 2012 4:12 pm

I'm looking to improve my OF. There are two teams in need of a SS and I'm trying to sell them on Rollins. I obviously can't shoot too high, but if I package Rollins with one of my OF (Rios, Viciedo, Scott or Hunter), who do you think I could realistically go for?
Team A has Holliday, Cruz, Choo, Bonifacio - I know I won't be able to get Holliday or Cruz, but do you think I might be able to land Choo?
Team B has Markakis, Melky Cabrera, Prado and Reddick - any of these guys worth going after?
If I can't pull anything off here, I'll probably end up dealing Rollins for some pitching as the owners in the league value hitters much more then pitching, so it's easier to land a quality arm then a quality bat. Thanks in advance

I think you should go for pitching. I think its gonna be very hard to get a good hitter for rollins, who doesn't contribute that much IMO.

Yeah i'd rather get a good deal on pitching than a mediocre hitting return. Maybe you can swing a deal for Fister?

If this is the same guy that was offered Garza (among other pitchers) for Rollins straight up in another thread then I still maintain that was your best option and is vastly superior to any of the deals you are thinking about here.

I'm a Phillies fan, first off. But I watch JRoll every day and watching him hit is pathetic. It's saddening.

I like Choo, Bonifacio (he just got hurt so idk), Reddick (although he's due for regression), and Prado.

Selling Rollins at his current value isn't going to yield the greatest return possible from him. People are in love with O-ranks. Wait it out until he has a solid week (EVERYONE is capable of that), then sell high. However, if you don't want to do that, I would target Prado first, then Choo, then Reddick Bonifacio. It really depends on your team needs.

If you can deal the Rollins name and one of those OF for Choo... I'd take it and run.

Try for Cruz. Its not like until recently he's setting the house on fire and he's an injury risk, so I would make this risk/reward trade Cruz for Rollins certainly fair. Perfect value.

I think that Choo is the best bet that you can go for here. However, I would agree with the above comments that if you can get a quality arm, I would take that over a mediocre bat. Depending on what you're offered, if you can get a good starter for that then that would be my suggestion. Thanks for your help on mine.

Same guy. The owner verbally said he needed a SS and that all of his SP were available for a bat. I asked for Garza. He has not responded yet, but he has not cancelled it yet either as I know that he has been on the site and has made a few add/drops so he has to have seen the offer. I think he might be wanting to use Garza for his start on Sunday and then he might pull the trigger (hopefully), but since I can't just wait around, I wanted to see what my other options are. If the Garza thing doesn't come through, I was offered this from another owner: I give Rollins, Viciedo, Janssen I get Morrow, Goldschmidt, Schafer. Thoughts on that?
