Upton trade....

Postby gatornuggets » Thu Jun 14, 2012 8:05 pm

Being offered Justin Upton and Elian Herrera (who?) for Joe Nathan and Jed Lowrie.

I just got both Nathan and Lowrie (along with Trumbo) for Carlos Beltran. So I'm looking to replace a big bat, but my starting pitching has been a let down this year so I am concentrating on stacking closers.

(I have Papelbon, Aceves, Nathan, Cook, Clippard, Soriano, Sergio Santos on DL.) Starters include Hamels, Shields, Dempster, Burnett, and Samardijza.

Rest of my team:
Joe Mauer
Justin Morneau
Ian Kinsler
Jose Bautista
Starlin Castro
Jed Lowrie
Paul Konerko
Nick Swisher
Cameron Maybin
Mike Trout
Desmond Jennings
Colby Rasmus
Mark Trumbo
Mike Aviles

His team:
Matt Wieters
Joey Votto
Aaron Hill
Alex Rodriguez
Jimmy Rollins
Elian Herrera
David Wright
Justin Upton
Matt Holiday
Nelson Cruz
Michael Morse
Jason Heyward
David Ortiz
Jordan Schafer
Kirk Nieuwenhuis

Josh Becket
Shaun Marcum
Johnny Cueto
Santiago Casilla
RA Dickey
Felix Dubrount
Matt Harrison
Scott Diamond
Hiroki Kuroda
Brandon Beachy
Doug Fister


Thanks!

Agreed.

First round talent in Upton for Nathan and Lowrie? I'd take the deal and run.

I did. So in a week, I've essentially traded Carlos Beltran for Mark Trumbo and Justin Upton. I win.
