Benson's value change at all?

Postby MadMobius » Fri Jul 30, 2004 8:13 pm

Doesn't seem like his run support will change but he is in a better pitchers park right?

with him being a weaker hitting division, does this help as well?

His value does go up. It wasn't huge to begin with, though.

From ESPN:

Benson goes from the Bucs to the Mets. Does it matter? Well, even as we dare to call Benson a tad overrated, absolutely. Shea Stadium is one of the most extreme pitching parks in the majors, for one. Another reason to like Benson more now is the fact he has terrific career numbers against the three NL East teams the Mets are chasing -- and will be playing quite a bit down the stretch. Also, Benson's career ERA at Shea is 2.45.

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

I think this increases his fantasy trade value, only because his name is all over the place. Im sure you can find a sucker in some league who has been watching ESPN and hears them talking about this trade constantly, and they will most likely over value him. I think now is the time to sell Benson if you can find that person who will buy into the hype. This has the same kind of effect as some players on the Yankees, ahem, Jose Contreras. People over value him because he is talked about frequently, same deal with Benson.

I'd rather have Chipper than Ichiro in the 2nd half. Call me crazy.

Benson's value goes up. He goes to a pitcher's park (from a slight hitter's park, I believe), with one of the best pitching coaches in baseball. I like the Mets' offense more for run support, even though the Pirates' offense has been pretty potent this season. Reyes, Matsui, Piazza, Floyd, Hidalgo, Cameron, Wright looks good to me.

And as long as his wife joins him on the move to give him enough action, he should do just fine. ;-)

thanks, I appreciate the advice. I know there are certain forums for this type fo thing. but sometimes, i like to think of the cafe as a dialgoue -- and sometimes better to get advice in context rather than post a whole sperate thread.

thing is I don't need chipper. I have bombers like: abreu, beltran, pujols, blalock, tex, crosby, hafner on a fairly deep 11 team league. I would like some steals and ba.

That's what I think, too. I mean, if you're clogging up the Talk board with trade questions, that may not be good and will slow the boards down. But since this thread was made with a separate discussion already present, I think it's alright to discuss a similar topic.

Umm, Chipper's value is just so low right now, that I would have trouble finding it inside me to deal him for near nothing. I'd really rather deal Tex who's been red hot, or maybe even Blalock, and acquire somebody better for them. That's just me...I still think Chipper can get out of his slump.

Completely agreed. I hate it when others know they are posting in the wrong forum and demand advice. This is a different case, and I don't mind as the long as it doesn't stray off of the topic at hand.

i'm sorry, not trying to hijack or post out of order, just trying to get advice.

since tons of people weighed in on a relevant topic, I thought I would ask.

I tend to think, that yea, don't post your intial trade questions etc here, but we are talking about benson as it is, my questions was mostly realted to benson.

sorry if I stepped on any toes....
