Which would you sell high? Finley/Burnitz/Both

Postby CBMGreatOne » Sat May 22, 2004 3:26 pm

Both are off to hot starts, co-leading the league in HRs along with Mike Lowell.

Which one do you think commands more value in return, and which would be better off keeping? Or should both be sold high?

I happen to think that Burnitz is this year's Preston Wilson, but Finley's performance thus far is equally amazing.

Any thoughts?

I'd much rather keep Burnitz and deal Finley. Even if Burnitz starts to slump he is still hitting at Coors which means any slump he has is still a good week for someone else. I like Finley, always have, but there's no way his power numbers continue like this. I think he's tied for the league lead or like 1 below right now-imo this is the best type to deal him.

I wouldn't trade Burnitz. In the leagues I'm in people act as if he's some sort of trash but I really think he is legit to have a monster year at Coors. I know I couldn't get fair value in return.

Burnitz is comically legitimate. The hate has lessened and soon will cease entirely.

Disagree...because there are already rumors that Burnitz will be dealt. His value plummets if he gets traded. Veterans on non-contenders get traded, and once the season is lost for Colorado, and Burnitz might very well be their most tradeable guy.

As for Finley, you can't sell him high. Unless you're dealing with a dimwit, you won't get a Top 20 guy in return. For whatever reason, Finley is one of the most underrated roto players of all time, year in and year out. He'll hit his .280, hit his 25 HR, steal his 15 bases (maybe more across the board) and maybe help win you a title. Guys who contribute numbers in all five categories have great value...keep him.
