Trade Pujols for Verlander?

Postby Sacamano » Mon May 20, 2013 4:37 pm

Need pitching and I have 3 first basemen, Pujols, Ortiz, and Fielder.

I was offered:

Verlander/Austin Jackson

For

Pujols/Ian Kennedy

Is this a decent deal? Should I be concerned about Verlander?

Aside from slightly elevated control, Verlander's numbers are right on track as previous years. In fact his K/9 is actually up and his k:bb is still very good at about 3.0 (though this is down from the past couple yrs). I think Verlander will be absolutely fine. Pujols we KNOW is hurt so yes he very well may rebound but every year that gets more and more unlikely. But even so, the swap is fair and you get a solid OF back once he's healthy. I don't necessarily trust Ortiz rest of the year but since you have fielder and you say you need pitching, I think this is a good deal for you.

In our 12 team H2H league we just had an owner trade Moustakas and Pujols for Pedro Alvarez and Ryu (pitcher) - I told him if he needed a 3B that bad I would have trade him Zimmerman and one of my pitchers. Now the guy who is getting Pujols said he would make that trade with me Zimmerman and Cobb from me for Pujols and probably Gallardo from him - I dont have a real viable 3B replacement - can play Scutaro or pick up Frazier or Arrenado to fill the 3B slot. Its Pujols - sore feet and all - its worth it right?

@gpordie - that depends on your roster size and your current 1Bman. You should start a new thread so we don't hijack this one from scamano!
