[quote="justinA"][quote="Larry"]I could trade for J. Edmonds... potentially giving more HRs... I think I could afford to give up Pierre.[/quote]
trade pierre for edmonds?? you can get much better. Edmonds is on the way down. Find the owner who overvalues steals and then make the trade.[/quote]
I think you're getting a steal if you can get Edmonds for Pierre. Pierre's value decreased a bit after Florida hired Jack McKeon and his disdain for stealing bases.
In the last two months of 2003's season, pierre had a total of 13 steals. He was averaging 14 steals a month for the pervious three months. That's a 50% drop in rate of steals.
I'm not suggesting Pierre is only going to have 33 steals (half of what he had in '03) this year, I'm not psychic. Unfortunately, after I checked out his split stats, I had to move Pierre way down in my draft sheets.
I'd say trade Pierre if you can.
