Adam Jones/Gio for Braun

Postby Frenchiegangsta9 » Thu Jun 14, 2012 10:08 am

12 team vanilla keeper...

Did I overpay too much to get a top 3 guy? I cant help but think that Jones cant keep this up, at least not at the level he has been at.

You made a great trade. Any time you can get a player of Braun's calibre it is definitely worth it. Jones is a good all around player but won't keep it up all year (See Bob Prince's Law of Hidden Vigorish)... The more a team wins, the closer it is to losing again. Jones' #s will eventually even out. Theoretically, even if he does continue to hit well, Braun will do just as well (if not better).

Not sure what vanilla keeper means, but you made out in this deal. Well done sir.

Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray
