Encarnacion for Tulowitzki....whir

Postby Elsy » Sun Aug 18, 2013 9:29 am

I've been trying to acquire Tulowitzki on a few different occasions this year. Other GM said he wasn't going to move him. Took one last shot yesterday approaching the deadline and offered Prince and Anderalton Simmons for him. He rejected but did finally send a counter offer:

Get - Tulowitzki

Give - Encarnacion

Roster:

C - Arencibia, Castro
1B - Fielder, Encarnacion(also 3B), Adams
2B - Lawrie(also 3B)
3B - Longoria, Donaldson
SS - Simmons, Drew -- don't trust either one of them
MI - Gyorko
OF - Bautista, Morse, Jay
DL - Rasmus, Jeter

SP - Darvish, Minor, Peavy, Griffin, Wilson, Ryu, Salazar
RP - Chapman, Soriano, Janssen, Betancourt
NA - Taillon

I feel I have enough elsewhere to move Encarnacion, good idea or not?

Fair trade, my only concern is Tulo's injury history. I may sit tight on this as there are a lot of young SS on there way up and while they don't offer his power you can find that elsewhere. Injury history scares me and he is only getting older.

This looks like a pretty even trade. You do have Fielder at first base if you trade Encarnacion, so I would make the deal. You could use an upgrade at short stop.

I like Encarnacion better, but you have Fielder and don't have a reliable SS.

I'd make this trade and hope that Tulo can stay healthy.

I dont like this because of Tulo's history on the DL. If its a keeper then I dont think I would do this but if its for the rest of the season then I dont see why not.

help please?

I'd be all over this counter. I know Prince is having a subpar 2013 but I'd rather own Prince than EE in a keeper going forward.
