Pitching Upgrades? Stacked at 1b. What do you think Arlo?

Postby ob187 » Wed Mar 26, 2003 8:14 am

I'm in a 10-team Feel pretty good about my balance otherwise, but wondering if I should still try to trade to address those positions--or wait for waiver opportunities later. My weakness is at the SP and Closur positions.

What do you think? Any trades I should try to offer to get a better pitcher? Helton for Morris?

Giambi, Jason 1B NYY
Jones, Jacque LF MIN
Sheffield, Gary RF ATL

Burks, Ellis DH CLE
Erstad, Darin CF ANA
Martinez, Tino 1B
Hairston, Jerry 2B BAL

Hmm... tough call. Dealing one of your 1b's is certainly an option, but I think you'd have to get a slightly greater return than Morris, as good as he is. If you can't find a deal that's more to your liking, don't worry and watch out for this year's waiver wire gems...

You might have to give just a bit more, perhaps by adding a lesser starter to the deal. If you can pull something like this off, though, I think you'll greatly improve your team.

Sounds like a plan. Another idea might be to simply add Lopez to your offer, since you'll have enough sp's anyway. Just a thought...

Tough call. Conine IMO is worthless in this deal. You'd be giving up one of the top first basemen, a second tier OF, and a SP with great potential for a top OF and Top 15 SP. If you can then drop Conine and take a chance on a sleeper rookie maybe you do it. I'd say Giambi and Ramirez's stats should be similar, Morris 17 wins, Lopez 15 wins, so he's getting added offense out of the deal.

I'd do the erstad for washburn for sure - I think washburn's injury is being blown way out of proportion. Pounce on that deal...
