big time trade...

Postby davisdad » Wed Jun 19, 2002 4:17 pm

I'm in a 5 x 4 head to head keeper league. I have been offered Ichiro, Carlos Guillen, and Joel Pineiro, for Tim Hudson, Johnny Damon, and Carlos Guillen. My other outfielders are Magglio Ordonez and Lance Berkman. what do y'all think?

Hi, davisdad! Well, apart from the Guillen part, the rest of the deal looks pretty good for you in that format. The Guillen part migth swing it, however...

(Guillen for Guillen - that has to be one of the fairest deals I've seen in a while :-D )

Well, I'm not one of the "experts" here but I don't think I'd do that. I really like Ichiro (in fact I'm trying to get him too) but you are giving up way too much. Damon and Hudson are significantly better then Guillen and Pineiro. Jeter is not quite Ichiro but he's close and he's a shortstop. (who's your back up ss?)

Unless you really, really, want Ichiro and you have absolutely no faith that Hudson will get back on track, I wouldn't take that deal.

Ah - quite! B-)

Ok, in that case, I think the price is just a bit too high, especially with Guillen's suspected DUI, which might result in a benching, if not worse... Decline this one, even if getting Ichiro would have been nice.

good feedback...and you're absolutely right...giving up too much...although Piniero IS the real deal...
