Big Tulo trade. Please help! WHIR

Postby mzkp54 » Mon Aug 01, 2011 8:32 pm

So I've been shopping Tulo around for a 1B, 3B, or SP. I just picked up JJ Hardy, and while its obviously a downgrade at SS I think Tulo's my best trading chip to improve my team. I was offered the following trade:

I give: Tulo, Bourn, Bonafacio, Oswalt
I get: A-rod, Pence, Soriano, Furcal, Vogelsong.

12 team H2H 5X5 standard, non-keeper
My team: (4th place)
C- Wieters
1B- Trumbo
2B- Uggla
3B- Youkilis
SS- Tulo
OF- Granderson, C Young, Bonafacio
U- Bourn, Freeman
B- Hardy, Joyce
SP- Verlander, Hanson, J Garcia, Norris, Wandy, F Garcia, Lackey
RP- Santos, Perez, Venters, Clippard

His team: (5th place, 1 game behind me)
C- VMart
1B- Agonz
2B- Pedroia
3B- Valencia (A-rod on DL)
SS- Furcal
OF- Pence, Lee, Crisp
U- Soriano, Ackley
B- Morneau

SP- Hamels, Cain, Vogelsong, Harrison, Masterson, Bumgarner, Luebke, Harang
RP- Hanrahan, Gregg, Farnsworth, Hernandez

I was thinking about countering with something along the lines of Tulo, Bonafacio, and Oswalt for A-rod and Hamels. I could also go after Agonz.

Please help me make a good trade! Or stand pat if thats the right call!
Leave a link and I'll be glad to return the favor.

i would suggest keeping what you have. i don't see how it makes your team too much better

No thanks. If you trade Tulo, who is a top SS, you should get another guy similar in value. Whether it is SP or hitter but don't trade him for a bunch of guys and hope they will help your team. Star player and 3 guys off WW are almost always more valuable than 4 mid tier guys.

If you can get A Gonzalez in the deal then I would do it, but the original trade does absolutely nothing for your team.
