A,Jones/Tex Deal

Postby CadensDad » Fri Jun 01, 2012 5:53 pm

Ok before I go too far let me detail this league a bit


12 team roto basic 5x5 Keep 6 for as long as you want. League is 8 plus years old, I'm in my 5th year. (I have never finished higher than 6th.)


Rounds 1-6 in the draft are our keeper picks. So Round #7=Round#1.

I give up
A.Jones-BAL
Murphy-NYM
Garza-CHC

Round 17 pick

I get
Tex-NYY
Blancon-SF
Bell-MIA

Round 9 pick

I am currently in 2nd place, (had been in first most of april and first of May.)

I just made 2 other moves Choo/19 for Gordon/11 and Francoeur/16 for Zobrist/20 (Landed Gordon and Francoeur.)


My team as of right now is

C-Mauer
1B-Butler
2B-Infante
SS-Castro
3B-Freese
OF-Jones
OF-Gordon
OF-Campana
UTIL-Schafer'
UTIL-Para
UTIL-Francoeur

DL-Ross
DL-Sandoval
DL-Utley



P-Lohse
P-Beachy
P-Saunders
P-Hanrhan
P-chapman
P-Bumgarner
P-Gio Gonzalez
P-Hanson


DL-Storen
NA-Mike Gonzalez


My thoughts behind this deal are this, Heath Bell has got to get better, he is pitching way below normal as of right now. I am in 3rd to last in saves at this moment. If he can squeeze out anything like his old self he should be a big help in that area for me.

Tex is known to be a big time 2nd half hitter, (Except that year in Atlanta.) He is already starting to heat up, and should be able to finish as a top 30 player easily.

A.Jones, can he really keep this pace up? I just dont see him being a top 10 player come end of the year. I think he finishes strong. But I think Tex will end up with better numbers before the season is out.


So tell me what do you think of this deal?

Zobrist over Francouer you were hosed there.
Choo for Gordon meh push there, saved you some money.
Are you Dayton moore now? HA HA HA

NO TO THAT DEAL.
You are giving up 2 best players easily and not really getting anything comparative back.

I disagree about not getting anything comparative back. I think Tex is the best player in the deal from here on out.

However, I still probably wouldnt do the deal. I would much rather have Garza over Bell, and you can get probably A LOT more for Jones right now.

Zobrist over Francoeur really? Frenchy is getting hot and Zobrist is getting colder.

I don't know how much more I can truely get for A.Jones, these guys I play with are vets and most of us agree he is playing over his head. I think Tex will be a top player the rest of the year, june is when he gets hot.

Any more opinions?
