So you say Crisp is entering his declining years huh? Well last I checked which was 2 minutes ago he is 27 years old. A little tip most people consider a 27 year old player as a player entering his prime. Marte being 4 years younger, 23, would then only have 4 years before he hits his declining years according to your reasoning. So I guess we should all consider Pujols as entering his declining years as he is 27, LOL. Do your homework. At least Crisp had an excuse for his down year, he was injured. Marte's excuse would be youth, but you say he is poised for a breakout after his stellar year last year. Crisp has shown that he can be an effective player at the major league level. Marte has done nothing except fall on every prospect list known to man over the last 2 years. For the record I would rather have Kouz over Marte. I just bought my Pads cap yesterday.
P.S. If you want to explain how turning 27 means you are entering your declining years, that would be great, lol.
After 27 comes what, Cow? 28, then 29, then 30....Crisp is entering those declining years. I know it's hard when you run out of fingers and toes, but try to work on it.
And if you had bothered to look at the thread, you would see that it had nothing to do with each player's fantasy value. It rather dealt with whether this was a good baseball trade for the two teams and an evaluation of the two players from a baseball, not fantasy ball, perspective.
Trying to dodge this one, Cow, is a pathetic low for you. When I was wrong about Soriano, I didn't dodge it. I was a man and said so. Learn from that example. Repeat after me...Cow was wrong about Crisp. That wasn't so hard was it?
So 28,29 and 30 are declining years?????? Seriously???? Johan is 28 next year, 86 him, VMart is 28 next year 86 him, Berkman is 31 next year, Soriano is 29 next year, Utley 28, Aramis 28, Vlad is done at 31, Bay is 28, Beltran 30, Wells 28 etc..... I guess all of these players are in for a decline. To me these look like players in their prime, but you say they are in their declining years. Seriously???
Wow... lol... where do you get your stuff from Cow?
I was pointing out how idiotic it is for someone(Agnes) to think that 28,29, 30 are the declining years. When Crisp was traded he was 26, both Crisp(26) and Marte(22) were young at the time of the trade and are still young. Why someone would bring up declining years for a 26 year old, smells of desperation.
Have you ever heard of age 27? That is most players' peak (pitchers are different). So yes, I would say past that age would be considered declining unless you have a study that disproves this. I can't believe you do not know this... oh wait nevermind.
