Big Ole Trade *WHIR*

My D Brown, Homer Baikey and 3rd rounder for Longoria, Ervin Santana and 13th rounder

It's on the table, thoughts?

Quick help in return, thanks! ;-D

Well considering Bailey just pitched a no-no tonight.....

Honestly though, I'd stay put. Maybe Brown keeps it up and maybe not, but you don't NEED Longoria and I'm personally not a long-term believer in Santana. You can take these for what they're worth, but I'm wary of a .250 BABIP, 81.4% strand rate, and a HR rate of 1.22. Granted his K and BB percentages have been good, so maybe he's here to stay. I'm just not sure that a 30-year old (previously mediocre) pitcher suddenly found himself.

And on top of that, I'm not a big subscriber to dealing picks if I can help it.

Hope that helps!

I wouldn't do it because of the injury risk with Longoria. Brown seems like he is a star in the making. I would stick with him.

I'd stick with what you have. Brown is starting to show some of what made him such a highly touted prospect and Longoria always seems to find himself on the DL. Arenado is no Longoria, but he has been better of late and could give you some decent numbers at third.

Pass. Longo always seems to be, or about to be, dinged up...Erv is having his one career resurgence year...and then you get shellacked on the swap of picks. NO DEAL.

See mine? Thx. viewtopic.php?f=26&t=463024
