Chris Young/Bud Norris for David Wright? WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Sun Jul 24, 2011 6:15 pm

Should I make this trade? It's a keeper league and Chris Young can be kept in the 8th round this year. I just had Adrian Beltre go down and I need to clear a roster spot so I can temporarily get a back up for him. Then I could start Wright at 3B until Beltre returns, and then just put either of them in the UTIL spot.

I have another option to possibly trade Pena/Norris for Adam Jones. Which trade is the best option, or should I not take either?


Trade A: Bud Norris and Chris Young for David Wright
Trade B: Carlos Pena and Bud Norris for Adam Jones
Trade C: Drew Stubbs and Bud Norris for Justin Upton
Trade D: Chris Young and Bud Norris for Lance Berkman

I love Adam Jones. What round could you keep him in? I would really like to trade Pena/Norris for Adam Jones.


As for the other deal, if you trade Norris for Adam Jones, the point is moot, but if the AJ trade falls through, I would not take this one. Wright is not to be trusted and CBY has been awesome this season. Norris has great K and good ERA but the wins are so hard to come by for him. All told, you give up too much for such an unknown like Wright, especially since you can keep CBY next season at a reasonable price.

Thanks for the quick response, Adam Jones could be kept in the 9th round next year.

I also might be able to get Justin Upton for my Drew Stubbs and Bud Norris. Do you like this trade more then any of the others?

I also Like trade "B",

But if you can't pull the trigger, I would go for trade "C" as the backup, forget trade "A"

Thanks again

I like all four deal for you. I'd rank them like this:

1. Trade B: Carlos Pena and Bud Norris for Adam Jones (Jones is a stud. Pena has power but his average and Ks, are really bad. Giving up Norris is worth the batting upgrade).
2. Trade A: Bud Norris and Chris Young for David Wright (Might be a risk, but If wright starts playing the way he is capable, you win it by a lot).
3. Trade D: Chris Young and Bud Norris for Lance Berkman (Berkman is having a great year, even though he's up getting old).
4. Trade C: Drew Stubbs and Bud Norris for Justin Upton (This might be a stretch, since Upton isn't much better than Stubbs, but I'd still do it).

Can you help with one more if you didn't already:
