Help with trade please!

Postby Crawford13Fan » Sun May 15, 2005 12:44 am

I think this should be somewhere else but I was proposed this trade:

Jose Mesa


Michael Young

Michael Young is currently on my bench but is now heating up. Jose Mesa is a good closer and these are my current closers:

Mariano Rivera
Danys Baez
Dustin Hermanson

Derrick Turnbow is also a FA though.

And turns out Michael Young is my only SS behind Miguel Tejada.

FA SS's:

Izturis is highest rated, but Eckstein is also FA.

Please help! and link to your post if you want I will reply.

I would not make the trade. Mesa's got good numbers so far, but how many chances will he get for one. Two, check out his lines the last 4 games. Sure he has only lost 1 of the last 4 games and got the saves in the others, but he has given up a run in 3 of his last 4 games. Besides, 3, your closers are as good, at worst Baez gets very little opps for a save, but i would not do this deal. I think Young is worth a lot more.

I also like Young, not a huge fan of Mesa. I wouldn't do this trade.

If Mesa gets traded to the Cubs (rumors, rumors) then his stock increases. Young has pop and speed, and is in a great lineup. If he gets on base he's got a great chance of scoring runs. If Mesa-to-Cubs happens and you truly don't need another SS (have utility spot locked up) then you could, but it's still iffy.

Definite no for now.
