    HUGE 6-man trade!!!

    Team A gets: Martin, McClouth, Shields

    Team B gets: Pudge, Ichiro, Verlander

    This is a trade that was recently proposed to me.

    Which team wins?

    • Team A: upgrade with martin, if LAD can start hitting. McClouth, big sell high candidate, though he looks to be the real deal, hitting with a lot of power in a mashing pitt club. Shields did well last year and is off to a strong start. Watch, he does tend to falter as the season drags on.

      Team B: Pudge started off hot, but he's old. He'll still put up some numbers, but these days he's more arm then bat. Also he hits low in the lineup, as detroit has plenty of better hitters. Ichiro is slumping but he still has 30 hits, 19 runs and 6 bags. He will give you over 200 hits and 30 bags, so he's a buy low candidate. Verlander is also a buy low, yes his starts have been horrendous, but he is a 25 year old flamethrower with a no hitter under his belt from last year, and he will pick it up.

      A: clear upgrade catcher, shields solid, mclouth seems to be the real deal

      B: downgrade catcher, Ichiro, buy low Verlander

      I like A, as B has a clear downgrade at catcher. B loses hrs/rbis but gains average/hits/steals from Ichiro. Verlander vs. Shields goes to Verlander long term, but A would be where I would want to be in this trade. It's close to even though.

    • I like em both but I would say A.
