    Seeking Opinions on this trade offer

    Barmes hs some real good upside. if you could count on him being healthy I would say no to this trade, however he was a health mess last year.

    Greene's Ks and BA is going to hurt so I would not be starting him unless is was a deep league.

    The trade itself is not too bad. Price has big time upside and while I do like Vasquez, I wouldn't expect a great season from him. The only thing is, if Navarro becomes your starting catcher, the overall drop in production from Martin to Navarro is major and is larger than the increase from Barmes/Greene to Young.

    Overall, not a terrible trade, but I would likely not do it if Novarro becomes your starting catcher.

    • Barmes's injuries are not the concern, its Todd Helton's injuries and Troy Tulowitzki's that matter. Barmes got playing time last year because Helton and Tulo were out. With Helton and Tulo back they will move Atkins back to 3B meaning they will have to find someplace new for Ian Stewart to play. Ian can play 2B and they have tossed around the idea of him playing OF but the Rockies still have plenty of depth in the OF and Stewart is a far better hitter Barmes or Baker
