Urbina for Mondesi

Postby Bliz34 » Wed Jul 03, 2002 3:38 pm

I just proposed a trade to give up Urbina for Mondesi

Right now I am #1 in saves by a long shot and I have Nunez and Billy Koch. I am also #1 by a long shot in SB and I am #1 in average by a 5 average points (just starting to downslope a little I was at .304 and now I'm at .298)

My current outfield is Ichiro, Chipper Jones, Adam Dunn and I rotate Tim Salmon and Jermaine Dye at the utility spot. I need power help but don'thave many options to pick up power.

What type of power player should I expect from Urbina? I ahd a crazy plan to possibly pick up Embree who the Sox just got to lower my ERA and WHIP because I'm second to last and 4th to last in those categories. Do you think Embree will get enough innings to make a difference? It looks as though the Sox could possibly be fazing Urbina out of the closing role. Is taht at all possible or am I crazy?

Because I have another team crying for a closer I would be willing to deal Koch, Nunez, or Urbina and the only guy I see him getting rid of may be Larry Walker.

You might not be deep enough at closer to give up Urbina (who I don't think will lose his job, but you never know with closers), especially if Florida does go to a semi-committee situation.

Of course, if you could get Walker straight up, that would probably be worth it, but if you're aiming for someone like Mondesi, it might be safer to offer Urbina/Salmon for Mondesi/lesser closer.

Embree could well be a solid pickup for you. I think he'll get his share of innings - enough to have an impact on your overall stats.

if you're leading steals does Mondesi really give you a better option than either Dye or Salmon rotated in? Not convinced its that much of an upgrade even with Raul happier in NYC. Arlo makes a good point about putting them together to get a real upgrade at outfield. otherwise I'd stick with with your rotation. I like Dye to improve in the second half and Salmon may too. I expect them both to have a better average than Mondesi.
