Grade the trade...

Postby gatornuggets » Mon Jul 30, 2012 11:16 pm

I get in David Price and Frank Francisco in return for Nick Swisher and Tyler Clippard.

Swisher is replaceable and how much longer until Storen regains the closer role?

Really hard to evaluate without knowing your team, the league type, and where you need help. I like getting the best player in any trade, and David Price is that guy. Closers are replaceable (although not sure Storen is getting the role back this season). However, if you are very strong in starting pitchying then maybe you think harder about this.

I'd probably do the trade. Francisco is hot garbage, but Price is an ace. Swisher is decent, but I'm thinking you can probably grab a decent OF in free agency if you really need one - no one spectacular, but decent. Clippard has done well closing, but Storen is lurking in the shadows.

Go for the big ace.

Should I make this trade? viewtopic.php?t=451181

I agree. Make the trade and get the 1-2 punch of aces in Hamels-Price.

Done.

Gonna see how Marte pans and look to deal Desmond Jennings away to someone looking for steals. His average is killing me. Should be able to replace Swisher's numbers who will probably be hurt again before the end of the year anyway.

Good move on your part. You get the best player in the deal.
