Trade Adam Jones? WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Tue Jun 26, 2012 8:36 pm

So this team in my league offered me Furcal and Ethier for Jones...IMO a no brainer reject, but from what his team has, should I pursue any of the following since he is interested in Jones...

His team (players of interest)
Jose Bautista/Adrian Gonzalez/Desmond Jennings/Gio Gonzalez/CJ Wilson/Jered Weaver/Matt Garza

Keep in mind Adam Jones would probably be a keeper for me at this point
10 Team H2H (5x5, OBP replaces AVG), keeper (we keep 6)
My team:
C- Posey
1B - Miggy
2B - Kipnis
SS - Andrus
3B - Prado
OF - JUpton
OF - Braun
OF - AJones
U - Pence
U - Rasmus

Bench - Rizzo
Bench - Ackley
Bench - Ploufee

Bumgarner/DHudson/Cahill/Worley/Oswalt/Felix
Clippard/Myers/Reed
DL - Halladay/Hellickson

I'd definitely reject that first trade. If you could swing Jones + something for Bautista you could really use the 3B upgrade. Don't sell Jones for less than top 25 talent, because that's what he is in a keeper.

Correct, i reject that trade. Looks like you could use some assistance at the SP position. See if he'll go for a combo of pitchers, possibly Gonzalez/Garza, or even if he's enamored with Jones, try Gonzalez/Wilson. Yeah, it might not work, but never hurts to try.

Help out?

Would you deal Adam Jones, Hellickson and Plouffe for Jose Bautista and CJ Wilson or Garza? And would you just do Jones/Plouffe for Bautista?

If I were you, I might try a classic buy low here: Give Adam Jones/Colby Rasmus, get Garza/Gonzalez? You really need some pitching, and you might be able to sell Jones/Rasmus high for both of them
