Ok be the GM of your team, what trade/trades call up or whatever would you like to make. Let's be realistic here as well


BRAVES:
Send: Derek Lowe to Detroit

Get:

Robbie Weinhardt- high ceiling will be a low end closer or set up man
Rob Brantly - Catcher with a solid bat, defense isn't that strong but he could move to 1b or CF


Then

Astros send Hunter Pence to ATL for

Braves Send:
Mike Minor
Lee Hyde
Jordan Schafer



Both trades seems fair and work for both teams

Can't say on the Detroit one, I play NL only and don't know the guys. Am curious about where Lee Hyde came from? The only Lee Hyde I could find is a nobody on the Nats? I don't think Houston goes for this deal. They can't trade Pence unless they are blown away with talent, and while Minor is a great piece, Schafer is only ok. remember that Pence is under control for a while, and is a fan favorite.

The Mets are trying to get Minor for Beltran who is just a rental. The Stros would need more than Minor/Schafer

I don't know what potential Schafer had at one point, but right now he would be a throw in and not a main piece. I don't think you can value Scafer based on what he did in thew minors, but based on what he has done with Atlanta.
Houston likely wouldn't even want Schafer, they could just plug in Bourgeois.

this could be fun/interesting if you're the GM of another team. fans of their own team tend to value their own players/prospects more than they are actually worth.
