Desmond Jennings/Ichiro trade.

Postby i_b_sparks » Tue May 01, 2012 1:47 am

Hello all! I'm new to the forums and was curious what some more experienced posters thought of this trade. I somehow ended up with 3 TB players in the draft (Zobrist, Upton, Jennings) and I get 0 points when TB has a day off. I am using Zobrist in the OF until C. Young returns from the DL. Then Zobrist moves to 2B. I have been offered a trade where I would receive Ichiro for Jennings strait up. I compared the rest of TB and Seattle's schedule to find that the teams share 6 of their 13 remaining off days. Seattle actually has 14 remaining days off. My question is this. Do I win this trade? Is it worth bringing in Ichiro just to have points on TB off days? I really like the TB offense this year and I feel like Jennings has more upside even though Ichiro is projected to score more points. My pitching staff is pulling me through while my hitting lacks a little something...

I honestly think it's a good trade. Other than HR's and Runs, their numbers are almost identical. As you described, you have 3 offensive players from TB, you ARE losing games. Ichiro has less stolen bases and HRs. But has more doubles. Their hits are almost identical and RBIs and averages are almost identical. I think it would be worth giving up Jennings to get Ichiro just for that offday. It would be close to playing Jennings on your offday. I think it's worth it.
