Need help with this trade ASAP. WHIR

Postby tdasher06 » Wed Mar 06, 2013 2:59 pm

I've been offered Jason Heyward for Jay Bruce and Shelby Miller. I'm nervous about trading Miller as I've read a lot on him being a really good prospect this year. I may could get him to throw in somebody like Ryan Dempster or Maholm. What do you guys think about this?

I wouldn't do this deal. Mosts lists have Heyward and Bruce listed very close (with Bruce even getting the edge most of the time); so unless you have serious man-love for Heyward, this deal isn't worth giving up Miller.

Depends a bit on league settings, but I would lean towards no on this deal.

If it's any kind of keeper league it's a *absolutely* no.

I wouldn't do it either. Heyward and Bruce are so close together that having to throw in Miller too makes this a case where you need to stick with what you have.

I would do the deal. We're just 2 years removed from Heyward being the #1 prospect in baseball. Putting too much stock in pitching prospects is risky. They are more likely to fail and become injured. Also, it's not like Shelby Miller has Stephen Strasburg potential, it's more like Mat Latos.
