Howard, Torres, and Verlander for Prince?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Tue Apr 23, 2013 7:52 pm

16 team, auction league, keeper(keep as many players as you want per year), 280 dollar in season cap, 7x7 roto style with OBP, TB, Holds, and QS as extra cats.

Been offered HIS Ryan Howard(14), Andres Torres(1), and Justin Verlander(40) for my Prince Fielder(43), Dan Straily(4), and Archie Bradley from my minors roster. What do you think? Is this enough for Prince?

I would take it! Verlander is arguably the best SP and howard hasn't been hitting any power yet really but his avg is up, so I am confident his power will come soon enough.

Take it! Fielder and Verlander are about even but like eatyun said, the upgrade in pitching is huge. I also think Ryan Howard is underrated. I don't have any experience with minors roster but I'd go for it.

I think you finally got him to give you enough to justify dealing your good 1b Verlander is a huge upgrade to your rotation and you get a decent 1b back at a good price who will provide at least most of the power that Prince would give. Take it.

I guess I am in the minority here, but I see this deal as a Verlander for Fielder swap, and I don't think Verlander is enough for Prince.

Howard does not come near enough to replacing the value you are losing by giving up Fielder.

I don't know if I do this. Verlander is awesome and would definitely improve your pitching staff a lot...But I don't trust Howard and Torres is a throw in. So this is really Fielder and your prospects for Verlander. IMO

I guess it will all come down to whether you trust Howard to have a decent comeback year.

Thanks for the help on mine! ;-D

I do not like Howard at all. I agree with the above.
