Dunn for Oswalt?

Postby timkell » Wed Jun 12, 2002 8:53 pm

Guys,

Would you trade Dunn for Oswalt?

Here are my outfielders:
Adam Dunn
Austin Kearns
J.D. Drew
Mike Cameron
Larry Walker

Here are my pitchers:
Orlando Hernandez
Josh Beckett
C.C. Sabathia
Eric Gagne
Carlos E. Hernandez
Randy Johnson
Matt Morris
Robb Nen
Brett Tomko
Bob Wickman


You can start 3 outfielders and a utility guy, so I always start four of these outfielders. You can start 7 pitchers. CBS Sportsline head to head.

The Guy also has Ken Griffey Jr. Would you trade Dunn for Jr and a lesser pitcher like Wade Miller or Robert Person?

What do you think?

That's a pretty tough call. With your roster, I don't think Dunn for Griffey plus a lesser sp would help you, but acquiring Oswalt is intriguing. The deal is certainly fair, and a 1-2-3 punch of Unit-Morris-Oswalt is bound to give you one of the best rotations in the league, but losing Dunn will hurt quite a bit, and leave you more exposed to injuries, something that's bound to be at the back of your mind anyway with Walker and Drew.

Hmm...

I'd probably see if you can add one of your lesser pitchers to the deal and receive a decent of in return. if that's not possible, it probably depends on your other utility options. If you can play somebody decent there other than an of, and if you have power coming from other positions, consider making the trade.

Well, the guy got Konerko from someone else for Wade Miller and Keith Foulke.

He said he couldn't part with Oswalt, even though he felt it was a fair deal.

Oh well. Your rotation is solid anyway, and you might be glad you have Dunn later on.

Trading Foulke now? Was that a gamble on the part of the team receiving him, great timing or a shady deal?
