give bruce to get fowler

Postby jovenparque » Tue Jun 05, 2012 1:03 am

14 tm h2h mixed keeper - offensive categories are:

R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, GIDP, AVG, OPS

fowler's 3B potential is what I especially like about him. i think my offense can absorb the power drop from folwer to bruce. the fowler owner, however, is looking to ADD an OF and this doesn't really address that need. he's willing to give CI/MI for OF. any other trade offer suggestions?

i got:
c - hanigan
1b - fielder
2b - kinsler
3b - alvarez (longo dl)
ss - jed lowrie
mi - r weeks
of - hamilton, bourn, stanton, bruce
ut - pena

he's got:
c - m montero
1b - ike davis
2b - infante
3b - b lawrie
ss - scutaro
ci - moustakas
mi - altuve
of - braun, choo, folwer, span
ut - matt adams
bn - gordon, espinosa

I don't hink Fowler has played 3B this year. I haven't read anything abiout converting him. Was this a typo?

Anyways, you can't trade Jay Bruce for him. I still think Bruce will finish with 35HR's, barring injury.

The thing about Fowler is that he's very good at Coors but pretty bad away. If you have the bench space, he's excellent for substituting when he's at home.

No no no no no. Have you seen Fowlers line away from Coors field? .178/.260/.311 That's just bad.

Bruce will get you 35ish home runs. Enjoy the hot streaks.

Good lord, no. Don't even think about giving Jay Bruce to get Dexter Fowler.
