3 for 3 pitcher trade...WHIR

Postby Tutuola » Mon Jun 24, 2013 4:12 pm

I was offered Bumgarner, Lohse and Phelps

i would give up Gio Gonzalez, Mike Minor and Colon


I feel like Bumgarner is the best pitcher in the deal...

I am anxious to trade Colon because I feel like a suspension is looming..

also, minor has started to tail off....

Here is my current roster...

14 Team, CBS, H2H, POINTS LEAGUE, NON-KEEPER
C- Matt Wieters
1B- Billy Butler
2B- Matt Carpenter
3B- Evan Longoria
SS- Ben Zobrist
OF- Matt Holliday, Hunter Pence, Yoenis Cespedes
U- Erik Aybar
SP (7) -Justin Verlander, Cole Hamels, Gio Gonzalez, James Shields, Mike Minor, Kyle Kendrick, Bartolo Colon
RP (2) - Edward Mujica, Jason Grilli
Bench Bats (4)- Russell Martin, Aaron Hill, Adam Dunn, Ben Revere
DL (2) - Matt Kemp, Wei-Yin Chen
Minors (2) - Billy Hamilton, Yasiel Puig

I could make a case that Bumgarner isn't the best pitcher in the deal but for arguments sake lets say he is, however even with that you are taking two obvious downgrades to get one slight upgrade. I wouldn't worry about Minor, two bad starts in a row isn't a crisis. Gio is really starting to put it together and the chances of a possible suspension for Colon that affects this year is more or less zero.

I think Bumgarner is easily better than Gio, I'm surprised you guys would debate that. Regardless, it's an awful trade because Phelps/Lohse have crap value, while Minor and Colon, while overperforming a bit perhaps, have excellent value. It's a slight upgrade on the top end, and a big downgrade at the back end. No deal.

How about Colon and Gio for Mad Bum and Lohse?
