Did I get a good deal?

Postby BlueJaysFan » Mon May 23, 2011 2:13 pm

I just traded Starlin Castro for Justin Masterson. Did I give too much for Masterson or is he the real deal? I have had 2 empty pitching spots so I thought Masterson could at least help fill one, plus so far he is having a stellar season. I still have stacked batting (both Lowrie and Aybar can play SS), so I'm ok with losing Castro, but my concern is that, if Masterson starts struggling I lost the deal.

It's not bad, but I think you could have done a bit better for Starlin.

I really would have not made this trade. Even though Castro has slowed down, he's always going to be a good hitter with steal potential. Shortstop is a really shallow position, which makes his value skyrocket.
