IS MY OF A SINKING SHIP???

Postby DaSh 1s » Mon Mar 24, 2008 12:56 pm

I got offered his Arod, Laroche.... for My Prince Fielder, Encarnacion, and John Maine
12 Team League, Head to Head
R,H,BB,HR,SB,TB,AVG ..... W,ERA,SO,WHIP,SV

C - Russel Martin
1b - Prince Fielder
2b - Cano
3b - Encarnacion
SS- Rollins
OF- Juan Pierre, Sheffield, Taveras
Util - Polanco
Bench - Ty wigg, Yunel Escobar

Sp - Smoltz, Felix, Perez, Maine, Penny, Gorzeslanny, Garza
RP - Gagne, Soria, Izzy


I think A rod is > Fielder, Laroche > Encarnacion.... and maine is just a toos in.....
My OF is struggling. Should i go for A Rod in this block buster deal or should i target pitching. I have a bunch of pitchers available. I will return any help that is given as soon as i see it. I would pick up Adam Jones or Joey Votto if this trade goes through as they both won starting jobs.

Your OF is pretty bad. Adam Jones would be a good idea. Definitely keep your eye on the wire, or shop one of your 2b eligible guys for an OF. That trade seems like a decent one for you I like Encarnacion, but he's no a-rod, and fielder is not as much of a lock as rodriguez laroche should be good unless he starts like last season.

I say take the deal and then try to fix your OF.

I would make this deal and pick up adam jones and joey votto. I think esobar and your extra slot. Even if you don't make the trade I would drop escobar and polanco for both of those youngsters, or drop one of them for another closer is one is available. Also as noted the OF is rather weak, see if you can grab milledge on the cheap as well.

What do you mean. How did i get it with it being bad? Or that it is good. I mean i you can see i waited to pick up my outfield last. I did IF SP then went on to the OF

I'd do the trade as much as I like prince. Now, get ready to be on the lookout for this year's ryan braun...hopefully a breakout star in the outfield can be had.
