Best Stud Ace Trade Offer WHIR

Postby EdKoch » Fri Jun 17, 2011 8:18 pm

I have already negotiated Braun for Haren OR Hamilton/Vogelsong for King Felix. I have not pressed the button yet.

This offer came today... Bautista and Hardy have been untouchable. Plus, I think I found a steal in Espinosa. Please help.

First off, don't deal Braun for Haren. That would be a very bad deal for you. I also wouldn't do Hammy/Vogelsong for Felix, though that's at least a closer deal.

To the main deal you asked about - I'd also pass on this one. Bautista is easily the most valuable player in the trade, and though the other three players you'd be giving up aren't exactly studs, I don't think the return is enough. Kinsler is good, but always an injury risk; Marcum is very solid but was injured tonight (not sure how serious it is); Correia and Holland are fairly mediocre SP options.

I have to agree... With the big trade Bautista is just a beast! I dont see a good return for him. Some quality players but no real STUD.... I'd Hang on. You can get more!

Correia and Holland are barely decent imo. They are just throw-in players. You can get more for Bautista.

None of the trades in your post are even close to good trades. You need to start fresh because they aren't even close. Back to the drawing board my son....

You're getting *abused* for Bautista in that deal.

Did I say PASS?
