Help with trade please WHIR

Postby kslates » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:22 am

Team is below

I've been offered Prince & Aoki for Beltran and top prospect Carlos Correa who I have under control for 5 years.

Leaning towards a counter as I would have to drop Gordon in that deal and feel I'm giving up too much.

My counter:

Give-Beltran, Gordon, Colon, Correa
Get-Prince, J Hamilton, Darvish

I'd get 3 years of Darvish as a rd 4 pick

I think he could bite at this as he's out of the playoffs


10 team, H2H , 5x5 Mixed League
Keep 10 MLB and 8 prospects. Lose round that player was drafted in previous draft.
Round drafted x years remaining is in parenthesis. N/A=contract expires after this year

C- Mauer (rd 6 x 3 yrs)
1B-Freeman (rd 16 x 2 yrs)
2B-Cano (rd 1 x 3yrs)
3B-Longoria (rd 2 x 3 yrs)
SS Desmond (rd 21 x 2 yrs)
OF A. Jones (11 x 1 yrs), , Beltran (rd 19 x 2), Granderson (rd 5 x 2 yrs)
UT , Kinsler (rd 3 x 1 yr), J Upton (rd 2 x 3 yrs)
BN-A. Gordon (rd 21 x 2 yrs)

SP Scherzer (NA), Greinke (rd 2 x 3 yrs) Kershaw (rd 1 x 3 yrs), B Colon (NA), Garza (NA), Minor (rd 9 x 3 yrs), Samardzija (rd 18 x 2 yrs)
RP Rivera (rd 5 x 3 yrs), Uehara (NA), Romo (NA), J. Johnson (NA)
DL-Parnell (NA)

Prospects--H. Morris, B. Starling, Correa

I think you're asking too much in that counter. I dno't value Gordon that much, and Beltran is not a great keeper at this piont in his career. He's an injury waiting to happen. I'd argue that Darvish is a top 3-4 pitcher, espeically as a keeper. So I don't see how he'd want to give up Darvish and Prince if he's playing for next year for an unproven prospect. I'm not all that excited about Aoki either, so don't love that first deal all that much, but I prefer to take the sure thing (Prince) over the unproven prospect, so I'd strongly consider that first deal. Maybe you could see if he'd swap out Aoki for someone slightly better, but not top tier like Darvish.

Always take the known commodity. The next Griffey Jr, Mike Schmidt, Hank Aaron, blah blah blah, will always come around again and its likely that NONE of them will actually live up to the hype.

Get Prince.
