Another Deal involving Delmon

Postby brandnew » Fri Jun 02, 2006 12:15 am

I'm not sure whether I should take this deal... confused at this point, Teix could turn out to just be a 30/100 type bat.


Mark Teixeira $2,500,000 for 7 Years
Stephen Drew 8 Years


Felix Hernandez $300,000 for 7 Years
Justin Morneau $300,000 for 7 Years
Delmon Young 7 Years

Here's my team:

C. Valentin
1B. Teixeira
2B. Grudz
3B. Chipper (16)
SS. Guillen (4)
OF. Andruw (13)
OF. Floyd (7)
OF. Drew (10)
Util. Michaels
Bench- Freel, Stairs

SP. Hudson (6)
SP. Verlander
SP. Horacio
DL. Burnett (5)
DL. Sheets (4)

RP. Mike Gonzalez
RP. Speier
RP. Cassidy
RP. Rhodes
RP. Rosario

Minors - can have up to 40; my best include: Billingsley, Saltalamacchia, and Drew

It's a 20 team H2H 6x6 with OBP and Holds. Cap at 90 Mil., Years Cap at 90 years.

What's the word on Delmon? Will he be up sometime this year or does he have to prove he's mature enough? I think I can squeeze Hansen or Devine out of him, too, and he has Alex Gordon as well.

I'd take it...Felix/Delmon for Tex/Drew seems fair (long term) and he's throwing in Morneau (I don't love Morneau but still)

I don't like it. Although Delmon is ranked highly he is still just a prospect with potential. I don't think you can trade Tex, a proven producer for a prospect. It is an interesting trade though...but risky. Felix is still young enough that he could be one of those pitchers with chronic arm problems, but he also could be great. I personally wouldn't do the trade.
