wright and Hamels for Longoria and Y. molina

Postby whet0003 » Mon Jul 09, 2012 11:59 pm

I have been offered Y. Molina and Longoria for David Wright and Cole Hamels. I am leaning towards no, because I would rather get a 2B or SS in return as I am heavy on 3B right now. This person has both Posey and Cano. I know that he wants to move Longoria, because he doesn't trust him, so I doubt that he would trade anyone else. But, should I offer Posey and Cano for Hamels and Wright? Or should I stand pat and try to trade one of my three 3B during the offseason for another position player?

NO WAY!
That is a bad bad trade for you very bad. You cannot afford to deal Hamels for any reason. YOU DO NOT NEED A 2b. Kipnis is younger than Cano and I'd take the next 5-7 years of Kipnis over 1-2 more top shelf seasons outta Cano. Just me. You do NOT need Cano for any reason. A;so, you cannot afford to deal Hamels either. Dickey after this season? Are you kidding me. No offense to the guy, but how can you trust a 37 YO Knuckleballer beyond this year?

Since Hanley is going to 3b for good (you still might want to keep him because he's still a productive player).

If you move Wright for anything I would get two quality players a SS and an OF.
A package of your Wright and maybe one of your sell high starters (Fiers) I'd look to acquire an OF and a SS: Starlin Castro would be an excellent SS for you to target and an OF with some power someone along the lines of a Reddick or Bruce!
