Prado/Travis Wood/Matt Cain for Segura/BJ Upton WHIR

Postby MonoStereo » Sun Jun 16, 2013 6:08 pm

Apologies if I mess up here - new to the forum.

I'm in a Yahoo H2H league with these stats :

R...HR...RBI...SB...AVG...W...SV...K...ERA...WHIP

I'd send Martin Prado/Travis Wood/Matt Cain & get back Jean Segura/BJ Upton. My current roster :

C
Salvador Perez (KC - C)
1B
Edwin Encarnacion (Tor - 1B,3B)
2B
Kelly Johnson (TB - 2B,OF)
3B
Chase Headley (SD - 3B)
SS
Alcides Escobar (KC - SS)
OF
Alex Gordon (KC - OF)
OF
Martin Prado (Ari - 2B,3B,SS,OF)
OF
Matt Joyce (TB - OF)
Util
Gerardo Parra (Ari - OF)
Util
Daniel Nava (Bos - OF)
BN
Will Venable (SD - OF)
BN
Garrett Jones (Pit - 1B,OF)
NA
Wil Myers (TB - OF)


SP
Travis Wood (ChC - SP)
SP
Lance Lynn (StL - SP,RP)
SP
Clayton Kershaw (LAD - SP)
RP
Edward Mujica (StL - RP)
RP
Heath Bell (Ari - RP)
P
Ervin Santana (KC - SP)
P
Joaquin Benoit (Det - RP)
P
Jose Fernandez (Mia - SP)
BN
Gerrit Cole (Pit - SP)
BN
Matt Cain (SF - SP)
BN
Zack Greinke (LAD - SP)
DL
A.J. Burnett (Pit - SP)
DL
Danny Duffy (KC - SP)


Overall it seems I'd still be in pretty good shape pitching-wise, & it would be a BIG upgrade for me at SS. Sick of winning the pitching stats but losing on offense...looking for some balance. Thanks in advance - I really like what I've seen of the forum!

Another reason to make the trade...I just saw that the Rays are calling up Wil Myers, who I need to open a roster spot for.

To get Segura absolutely do that deal for sure. I know taking on BJ is not a good thing but he is hitting better and maybe just maybe he can get to being that 240ish hitter with 25-30 homers and about 20 SB.

Thanks for the input! Actually, Upton was added when my trading partner came back at me with a counter-offer. I'm looking at him as a bonus with upside.

I went ahead & made the trade last night. Fingers crossed!

That offer is basically a 3- 1 deal. I respect the opinions of the posters on the café but expecting Upton to come to life to get those numbers is expecting way too much. The season is almost half over (71 games played ). There is no way Upton hits 25-30 hrs and no way he steals 20 bases. You can't steal first base. But its still a deal I would do and drop Upton.

Believe me - Upton's on a reeeeeeeeal short leash. If he doesn't contribute soon-ish he'll be gone.

I'm not supporting him...just saying...I've about had it with him as well...I give him a week or two more and if he doesn't go on a hot streak he's gone. :-)
