Need trade help FAST! WHIR

Postby ATLbravesFan92 » Tue Mar 05, 2013 9:08 pm

ive been offered Jason Heyward for Aroldis Chapman, Desmond Jennings, and Will Middlebrooks.

Im in a 10 team head to head league

My team Is:

C- Mike Napoli
1b- Eric Hosmer
2b-Howie Kendrick
3b-Miguel Cabrera
SS-Starlin Castro
CI- Will Middlebrooks
MI- Andrelton Simmons
OF- Justin Upton
OF- Jose Bautista
OF- Shin Soo Choo
OF- Alex Gordon
OF-Desmond Jennings
Util- David Freese
BN- Brett Gardner
BN-Wil Myers
BN- Alex Avila
BN- Jedd Gyorko

SP- Adam Wainwright
SP- Zack Greinke
SP- Yu Darvish
RP- Mariano Rivera
RP-Brandon League
RP- Addison Reed
P- Aroldis Chapman
P- Matt Moore
P- Jon Lester
P- CJ Wilson
BN- Jeremy Hellickson

I have Brett Gardner on my bench so i could replace jennings with Gardner
I have Freese at UTIL so i could replace Middlebrooks at CI with Freese and put Heyward at UTIL

Middlebrooks coming back from injury worries me, so does the sophomore slump, and as dominant as Chapman may be, he will be on an innings limit and may not even get to help me in the playoffs... Plus i already have Greinke, Wainwright, Darvish, Matt Moore, Hellickson, Cj Wilson, and Jon Lester as my other starters.

would i be giving up too much to get Heyward?

You have lots of arms, I think I'd pull the trigger on Heyward there.

Being that your outfield is already stacked, I would not do this. Chapman will have a ton of strikeouts this year if he does not get shut down. You already have enough power and Jennings will steal more bases than Heyward. I'd stay put.

I wouldnt have to drop anyone, id be getting Heyward and trading the other 3. So id have to pick up 2 players.

All id need is a bench bat, and a pitcher. Pettite and Fiers are available so id probably go for one of them.

I wouldn't do it personally. I think it's up to personal preference though. You can certainly afford to lose Chapman with your great pitching staff. I think Middlebrooks is going to have a better year than people are giving him credit for though and I'd keep Jennings around too, although you have a solid enough OF already and getting Heyward only helps strengthen it further. I just don't like the trade myself, don't have too great a reason other than I just think Middlebrooks and Jennings could have decent years and keeping Chapman around is something I'd want to do. But I wouldn't think you were an idiot if you took it
