Trade Help......

Postby ntremain23 » Tue Jul 16, 2002 8:15 pm

Another team wants Albert Pujols.I currently have him as my Utility man.He has both Matt Clement and Tim Hudson and I want them both.Do you think Albert Pujols is enough to lure Clement and Hudson away from him?Or should I trade him a starting pitcher.I'm stacked with starters.If I should include another starter which one out of this list should I include to get Clement and Hudson.Oh yea,by the way,to replace Pujols and Utility I have Fred McGriff,I think he can fill the void Pujols would leave.Here's my list of starters,which one should I inlcude:
Hidea Nomo
Ted Lilly
Vicente Padilla
Kip Wells
Tomakuza Ohka
Jamie Moyer
A.J. Burnett
Pedro Astacio

If Pujols isn't enough to get both Clement and Hudson,which one of those starters should I include with Pujols?Thanks sooo much for your help.

Unless his staff is absolutely loaded, it's going to be hard to get both those guys for just Pujols. I disagree that McGriff will fill the Pujols void. Two suggestions:

You have several pitchers that might post similar numbers in the 2nd half. You might get both guys by giving him his choice:
Pujols + (either Wells, Padilla, Lilly, or Ohka) for Clement + Hudson

Or, you could try and deal Pujols + CrimeDog + his choice for a real good bat and one of those starters you need.

with the way hudson has been pitching lately, what about pujols for hudson straight up. if you still want to make the two for two dealand get the better of it, i would look to trade anyone but astacio, burnett, and padilla simply because all three of those guys are about equal with clement. good luck.

Good suggestions. I also tend to think McGriff won't equal Pujols in the utility slot, and I'm extremely high on Hudson.
