Ian Desmond for Wandy Rodriguez? (WHIR)

Postby toof90 » Wed Jul 11, 2012 1:27 pm

The offer is I get Wandy, he gets Desmond

My Team
C Y Molina
1B Mark Teixeira
2B Dan Uggla
3B Hanley Ramirez
SS Starlin Castro
OF Melky Cabrera
OF Adam Jones
OF De Aza
Uti Ian Desmond
Uti David Freese

Bnch Jesus Montero
Bnch Coco Crisp

SP RA Dickey
SP Ryan Dempster
SP James Shields
SP Josh Beckett
SP Tommy Hanson
SP Tom Milone
RP Jon Axford

Bench Ubaldo Jiminez
Bnch Ervin Santana
DL Roy Halladay :,-(


I need SP help. I was offered Wandy for Desmond. I give Desmond and get Wandy Rodriguez
I thought Desmond was worth more than that given he has 17 homers at SS. But will he keep it up? And Wandy will probably be traded to a contender, right?

I have HanRam and Starlin Castro at SS, so Desmond can go. Im currently 5th in the standings, was 3rd before a couple of my guys got injured

Thoughts?

Yeah trading away Ian Desmond is a great idea but I would definitely try and go for a better SP then Wandy Rodriguez... he is good but I would aim higher not sure who but definitely a better SP then that. Who else does the kid have? or who else do kids have that need a good SS.

I would do that Desmond's value will never be higher than it is now he won't keep this up.

No ... don't do it.

Desmond has emerged as perhaps the No. 1 shortstop this year with Troy Tulowitzki injured. Short is such a thin position that someone in your league almost certainly would pay better than Wandy to get him. Ask around your other owners and see who might be interested, and what they might be willing to part with. Target owners with weaknesses at short and depth at starting pitcher, ideally those behind you in the standings. I think you'll be surprised.

Thanks for helping on mine.

You have guys who can play SS but I'd still try to get a bit better than Wandy for him. Package him with a hot hand to get another tier higher.

I wouldn't. Either hold onto Desmond, or try to package him for a better pitcher.

Don't trade for Wandy Rodriguez. I'm from Baltimore and the rumors are that The O's are trying to get Wandy Rodriguez. I'm thinking about trading him, I don't want nothing to do with him if he comes to an imploding O's team and the AL east. I was offer Delmon Young for J. Johnson, I might just counter with Wandy and Pickup Derek Holland. I don't think I can trust Ruggiano.
