My Darvish for Adam Jones? WHIR

Postby ron paul for pres » Mon May 06, 2013 9:19 am

8 team, H2H, 5x5, keep 3

My strategy is to always win offense. It's been underperforming with Hamilton swinging at everything and Heyward hurt. With pitching, I always roster 8 SPs and mix established stars with young talent. I added Patrick Corbin last night to make sure I still have 8 SPs in case I deal Darvish. I drafted Darvish because I thought he could win the Cy Young this year. I still think he can. But is this still a good deal for me?

So, my Yu Darvish for Adam Jones?

Current roster:

C - Willin Rosario
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Miguel Cabrera
SS - Troy Tulowitzki
MI - Jean Segura
CI - Michael Cuddyer
OF - Andrew McCutchen
OF - Josh Hamilton
OF - Michael Morse
OF - Josh Willingham
OF - Lorenzo Cain
UT - Vernon Wells
DL - Jason Heyward

SP - Stephen Strasburg
SP - Yu Darvish
SP - Madison Bumgarner
SP - Gio Gonzalez
SP - Hisashi Iwakuma
SP - Paul Maholm
SP - Alex Cobb
SP - Shelby Miller
SP - Patrick Corbin
RP - Sergio Romo
RP - Jason Grilli
RP - Tom Wilhemsen

Adam Jones IS one of the elite outfielders in the game today. If you believe you need to upgrade your offense this is a great way to look. However, you said it yourself - Darvish has a chance at Cy Young this year. I wouldn't be upset with either player though so this is basically your preference. If you want offense, do it. You could always replace Wells and Cain will cool off soon so you could go with it in that sense.

help please?

I think Darvish has a sizeable shot at the Cy Young and honestly I think you can get more value for him than Adam Jones.

Any other opinions? I'm leaning toward doing this.

I really want to improve my OF. FA doesn't offer much and most people in this league don't trade.

If you feel it benefits you then do it. Ur hitters will even out but darvish is a total stud that will be hard to replace. Just my opinion

I don't give a crap about the Cy Young when it comes to FBB.

What you should be concerned about is the fact that he's averaging more than 10 Ks per start , and is on pace for most K's in a season since Nolan Ryan with the Angels.

I'd only trade him for a truly elite bat at this point and I think Jones is just below that tier.

No I would definitely try to find an owner who is struggling with pitching and hope he has outfield depth and get a player like Car-Go. Darvish is that good that you should be able to get a player like that. You won't be getting Braun, Upton, Trout, or Harper, but I feel that Car-Go is one of those guys that while he is a top OF, someone would deal him for Darvish.

I think you can do better than Jones too, maybe CarGo or Cutch.

Yeah I agree with the majority of these posts in that Jones is not enough.
