BIG TRADE!! Bourn+ for Bumgarner+ HELP!!!

Postby sclyon3 » Wed Jun 27, 2012 9:49 am

Trade proposed to me:

Give: Bourn, McDonald, Lynn

Get: Bumgarner, Carlos Santana, Lawrie


My roster right now is:

C Rosario
1B Craig
2B Hill
3B Cabrera
SS Reyes
IF Youkilis
OF Bourn
OF De Aza
OF Jennings
OF Plouffe
Util Ortiz
DL Crawford

SP Verlander
SP Kershaw
SP Felix
RP Chapman
RP Kimbrel
RP Jansen
P McDonald
P Lynn
BN Peavy
BN J. Santana
BN Latos
BN Halladay (DL)

It is a 10-team H2H league. Categories are R, HR, RBI, SB, Avg, OPS, K, W, Sv, ERA, WHIP, K/BB.

I am currently in 2nd place. Top 4 qualify for playoffs.

Obviously my pitching is straight stacked. I'm just wondering if this deal represents fair value for the players I am dealing away. My biggest concern is obviously Carlos. I don't think he's this bad and is a prime buy low.

This owner is infatuated with Bourn, so I might be able to pull some strings if there's a tweak that might make this deal sweeter for me.

Let me know your thoughts! THANKS

I think I like the trade as is. You are getting another stud pitcher to add to your already stud staff. Plus two outstanding bats. I doubt Lynn and McDonald keep up there ways all year and Santana will bounce back. He is too good not to.

please help

I think this is a very good deal for you. Bumgarner is sick, Lawrie has been consistant and is starting to come alive since being moved up in the order and I too think Santana will turn things around and have a nice second half. I'd make this deal if it were me.

Thanks guys. I am replying to yours right now.

Also, it is not a keeper league. I forgot to mention that.

I would definitely do it, re-draft or otherwise, I think Lynn is a sell-high, and Santana is definitely a buy-low. Is Craig OF elligible? If so then I guess you move him to OF, Youk to 1B, and Lawrie to IF?

I would definitely do the deal. You are getting the best pitcher in the deal with Bumgarner. I am a huge Cardinals fan and love what Lance Lynn has done this year but with as much as they have been preparing him for a reliever the last couple of years I think he will hit a wall in the second half. I think McDonald is good but the Pirates will come back to earth just like last year.

Even with Santana's struggles I'd feel more comfortable with him now to the end of the season than I would with Rosario. Lawrie has really picked it up since moving to lead off and will replace some of the lost stolen bases if you replace Youkilis (at least until he proves he isn't broken down like the 50 year old he appears to be)
