Machado and Denard Span for BJ Upton WHIR

Postby baegames » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:53 pm

I am looking for a bump in SB and pitching. Obviously, this does nothing for my pitching (I may try to work a starter in there).

I would replace Machado off my DL with Trevor Plouffe. Does this deal make sense at all

I have already decided to make a deal relating to this. Please see the following questions:

New Offer:

I give Machado, Glen perkins, Nick Markakis. I get: BJ Upton and Anibal Sanchez. I activate Plouffe in order to replace Machado at MI.

New:

What if I asked for Zach Greinke instead of Anibal Sanchez? Does that make it a good deal?

Would need more details about your league settings...

If it's a non-keeper/dynasty league, then I don't think it's a bad deal.

If it's a keeper/dynasty league, you better hold on to Machado.

Thanks for the help on mine!

Keeper, non-dynasty (3 protections), but I am going for it this year.

It seems like an OK deal, but I don't see Sanchez helping your team at all... When is your trade deadline?

Sanchez has fallen off a cliff. I just dropped him.

BJ Upton is slogging through another season of unfulfilled potential.

Take the possible upside of Muchado.

If you can get Grienke, then I'd go for it. If not, pass on this deal and hope Machado pans out.

Thanks for the help.

I am not big on Sanchez or Upton. Being in the AL now, Sanchez has been getting pummeled, and Upton is clearly regressing. I would target a better starter because this kind of trade wont have too much of an impact IMO.

Thanks for the help. I will have two questions if I make this deal and another one.

I will post them.
