Good deal?

Postby terpfan » Thu Jun 20, 2002 2:06 pm

I'm about to complete a trade with someone who has been slobbering over Prior since day 1.

I get: Mike Mussina and Nomar
He gets: Prior, Padilla, and Dave Roberts

I think he under values Mussina plus this trade will give me 3 of the top 5 shortstops for trade bait. I also allready have a pretty deep rotation. Am I milking Prior for all he's worth or is this not quite as good as I think?

Here's my roster now:
8 team H2H league

Batters:
c - piazza
1b - helton
2b - bret boone
3b - glaus
ss - rollins
of - andruw jones, jaun gone, beltran, pujols
util - thome
util - tejada
bench - aramis ramirez
bench - dave roberts
dl - manny, nevin

Pitchers:
sp - schilling, pedro, zito, glavine, prior, padilla
rp - hoffman, nen, mesa
bench - ramon ortiz, eric milton, wade miller

Looks like a tremendous deal for you. I don't know how desperate this owner is to acquire Prior, but that's well over what I would have expected his trade value ceiling to be. Take this trade and run like the wind - this is great, especially since you need to make room on your roster soon anyway.

Frankly, I'd like this deal even in a keeper league, which I take it this isn't?

He want to do Mussina straight up for Prior. Is there any reason not to do this? (Will Moose pick things up? Will Prior become a superstar by this year?)

Well, it's a huge downgrade from the original deal. If k's don't count, Mussina will have quite a bit more value than Prior, but if they do, it could be close. You'll have to calculate this based on your scoring system; in most h2h leagues, however, Mussina's wins should make him the better choice.

If the initial offer was made by the other side, however, you should make a counteroffer before accepting this; something like Prior/Rollins/Padilla for Mussina/Nomar, perhaps...

Yes, k's do count. I think I will counter offer. I wanted to counter with that trade but I don't want to lose Rollin's steals. Without him my only basestealer is Beltran.

Good thinking about the steals. Hmm... Dave Roberts probably isn't enough; perhaps you could add Wade Miller to the offer? Good luck!

your deal

That first deal is outstanding for you. Prior doesn't have the offense behind him that Mussina does. Take it and run
