Adrian Gonzalez trade, need advice!!

Postby SFGxNinerGang » Thu May 02, 2013 5:13 am

Hello everyone, this is my very 1st post here on FBC. The yahoo boards suck, so I migrated to this much better forum/community. Anyways I need some advice on a trade that was proposed to me. This is a Yahoo 10 team H2H league with standard categories. I'm in dead last! I need pitching and a manager proposed this to me. I'm strongly leaning towards accept but dont know if my offense can take the hit of losing A-Gon. Here's the trade;

I give - Adrian Gonzalez
I receive - Jordan Zimmerman and Ryan Howard

A look at my current team before trade.

1B Adrian Gonzalez

I do not like it for you. A 4-for-1 trade must be looked at as a 4-for-4; in this case, a 2-for-2 is necessary. The reality:

Adrian Gonzalez AND Roy Halladay (is that who you would release?)
Ryan Howard and Jordan Zimmermann

In that light, I do not like.

Its not THAT bad. I mean you do need pitching bad. I might try to acquire two good arms. How about Crawford, Prado, and Hanley for a Tulo, Latos, Medlen type of deal? Think you could try and get it done?
