Good Trade

Postby greatbambino95 » Sat Jun 16, 2012 12:33 am

Yahoo keeper league, 10 teams, the scoring is based off of the winner of the batter and pitcher categories:

Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Total Bases (TB), Batting Average (AVG)

Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS)

here is my team:

Billy Butler (KC - 1B), Jason Kipnis (Cle - 2B), Brett Lawrie (Tor - 3B), J.J. Hardy (Bal - SS), Ryan Braun (Mil - OF), Carlos Beltran (StL - OF), Freddie Freeman (Atl - 1B), A.J. Pierzynski (CWS - C), Kevin Youkilis (Bos - 1B,3B), Roy Oswalt (Tex - SP) , Ricky Romero (Tor - SP), CC Sabathia (NYY - SP), Jason Hammel (Bal - SP), Jim Johnson (Bal - RP), Santiago Casilla (SF - RP), Adam Wainwright (StL - SP), Clayton Kershaw (LAD - SP), Adam Jones (Bal - OF), Carlos Ruiz (Phi - C), Brian LaHair (ChC - 1B,OF), Carlos Quentin (SD - OF), Dan Haren (LAA - SP), Edwin Jackson (Was - SP), James Shields (TB - SP)

He offered Austin Jackson and James McDonald for A.J. Pierzynski, Jason Hammel and Kevin Youkilis. I think this is great for me, I know he is a fan of established players (Youkilis) and he probably thinks he is buying low (Youkilis and Hammel). I also think Carlos Ruiz = A.J. What do you guys think?

Great trade. I think Jackson will be a solid OF and McDonald will be a solid SP. I don't see what there isn't to like.

Yes its not a great idea to carry two catchers anyway, if you can get something like this for them do it. You have the depth and not a bad idea to get McDonald.
