Arod/Vogelsong for Adrian Gonzalez WHIR

Postby ROC AllStars » Fri Jun 15, 2012 10:31 pm

10 team points league, REDRAFT.

I give: Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Vogelsong
I get: Adrian Gonzalez

I feel crazy for even posting this, but which side wins this deal? Adrian has been a mess this year, no power, poor plate discipline... Does he turn it around?

I think I'd take the gamble seeing as ARod is on your bench even though he could be in your UT spot and your pitching is solid across the board.

I agree, you can afford the gamble with your pitching. If A-gon returns to form it will pay big dividends. I personally think that he'll be able to turn it around in the 2nd half...and just think if he can fully return to something like 2008's power numbers you'll be thrilled. While hbis average improved last year, I though A-gon's power numbers would soar in the bandbox that is Fenway...alas that didn't happen. There's still plenty of time though and the gamble is worth it. With A-rod and a 34 yr old Vogelsong you know what you're gonna get with them...the unknown with Gonzalez could be what you need to get to the top. Good luck

You have to take the deal. Especially with ARod on your bench. Thanks for the help on mine.

As the others have said, you can afford to make this move, so I think you pull the trigger on this one. It should be a nice deal for you.

I think you should make that deal just because you have great pitching and can afford it.

I'm not sure Agon turns it around but it's worth the gamble imo. Go for it
