My Will Meyers/J. Upton for Starling Marte/A. Jones? WHIR

Postby angels7777 » Thu Aug 08, 2013 5:45 pm

I was offered my Meyers for his Marte. I do need speed, but what should I do? Accept it, reject it, or counter my Myers/J. Upton for Marte/A. Jones?

I would not do that. Marte has batted .248 or lower in 3 of the last 4 months. Myers is on a tear and, sabermetrically speaking, it looks to be pretty darn legitimate.

I wouldn't do either. Myers is hitting and J Upton has been on fire the last 2-3 weeks. Especially since you don't need speed, pass.

Would you deal Myers/Upton for A. Jones/Rios?

Very close, but I think I would in a non-keeper. Jones is a little better than Upton, and for what it's worth Rios was claimed by the Rangers. If they work out a trade his value skyrockets, and I already like him more than Myers (though that gap is rapidly closing).
