He's Playing for Next Year ... Trade? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Aug 06, 2012 1:13 pm

This guy wants to trade and is playing for next year basically. Does he have anyone that would make sense for me to target - based on my current roster/injury situation? I could use more speed with Bonifacio down. But don't want to overpay. Also always like strong pitching...

I am in second place and 5 games back of 1st.

Of the guys on his team, I'd say Butler (general quality hitter) and Revere (speed that won't kill all your other categories) are good options.

Revere is a nice guy to target for speed, but he will prob like to keep him since he is a young player and has a lot of upside.
Out of his OF, I really like Adam Jones. He also could be a good keeper tho and hard to acquire.
Maybe try to acquire Pablo Sandoval? He is coming off the DL soon and could be a nice hitter to have down the stretch.

Out of the pitching, I like AJ Burnett. He has been very solid this year and still could be relatively cheap to acquire.

Sandoval was the one guy that jumped out at me also. But you have Stanton coming back soon, Miggy at 3B, Prince at 1B and your OF/UT spots are stacked already. Not to mention that you're getting Joey Bats back soon too. I don't think that it's a need for you.

I'm not crazy about his pitching.

The only guys I would consider dropping on your team is Carlos Gomez and Ricky Romero, and I would drop either of them for Lorenzo.
