    Trade Help: Braun for Sabathia

    Second Posting.

    I received an offer that would give me:
    CC Sabathia and Alfonso Soriano

    I in return would send:
    Ryan Braun and Gil Meche

    It seems one sided but people have brought up goo points:
    1) Soriano-Health
    2) Sabathia-overused/abused last year + Yankee pressure
    3) Braun- A LOT of upside

    What do you think?

    • Soriano-health...the guy missed 40 games last year...20 in 2007. For 6 years before that he averaged 150some games a year. Somehow he's a health risk? He a a freak calf injury (because he's a dummy)

      CC averaged 200 innings a year for 6 years before last. With Rivera, he won't be asked to throw a CG every 2nd game. He should have a better workload this year therefore better health, on a pennant contender ie 20wins.
      Pressure?? He has been the BIG GUN for 6 years. Now he has other solid starters and a closer to back him up. If the guy couldn't handle pressure, he would have wilted under the Cy Young/pennant race pressure last year.

      Braun. We already know his upside. 320 Avg, 35-45 homers 120RBI 15SB. That's his upside.

      Meche. Look at his #s, you know what you get.

    • i'd might stick with the braun side, I think meche is way underrated, and i do believe C.C.'s arm is gonna give him some issues later in the year

    • hard to pass up.
