How likely is a Preston Wilson trade?

Postby This is the year » Mon Jul 05, 2004 5:02 pm

I've been hearing a lot about Preston Wilson possibly being traded to the Yankees or Rangers. Are there any Colorado fans here that could tell me how likely this is to happen? I'd like to trade for him in my league. Thanks!

If Preston Wilson is traded, his value will go down. Period. Trading for him isn't neccesarily bad, but he won't be in a better situation, so unless the P-Dub owner in your league fears a trade then you'll probably be paying too much. In one of my leagues, he was just traded for Chipper Jones. That seems like a fair trade to me, even though Chipper has been slumping, since his value is on the rise, and Preston's is presumably on the decline. He was traded for Mark Buehrle in another league. If his owner is that desperate in your league, by all means trade for him.

If you look at Wilson's 3-year splits his numbers at Coors are not that much better than his road numbers. His BA is about 20 points lower on the road but his HR numbers are actually better.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
