Trade for CC and Teixeira - WHIR

Postby dssguy99 » Tue Jul 10, 2012 11:35 am

I was just offered his CC and Teixeira for my Rasmus and Rios. I think I should take this. I have Ells coming back so Im thinking to move an OF anyways. I would use Tex in the UTIL and slide Ells into the OF spot. CC is an upgrade from Niese or Jackson. Anyone think not?

2B Brandon Phillips
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS Ian Desmond
OF Colby Rasmus
OF Josh Reddick

Util Carlos Gonzalez

BN Tyler Colvin
BN Jacoby Ellsbury - WILL BE COMING BACK SO WE NEED TO MOVE AN OF ANYWAYS
DL Carl Crawford

SP Stephen Strasburg
SP James McDonald
RP Kenley Jansen
RP Rafael Soriano
P Tyler Clippard
P Jonathan Broxton

I'd take it. I like the move. You slide CarGo and Hamilton into the OF, Tex goes into one of the Util slots and you can rotate Reddick, Colvin, and Swisher in the other Util slot once Ellsbury comes back. Plus you improve your rotation. I think this works out for you so I'd take that deal.

No brainer. Pull the trigger. Alex Rios and Colby Rasmus are playing over their heads right now (and they have a nasty habit of getting in terrible slumps). Tex is significantly better in the second half of the season every season of his career. CC Sabathia is consistent and will make an impact as soon as back from DL. I agree with the person above RE: sliding Hamilton and Cargo into vacant OF spots.

Heck yes. Take that and run. CC is as steady as they come, and Tex will give you better numbers in the second half than he did in the first. You get the two best players in the deal.
