Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I would in essence be trading
Ervin Santana/Andre Ethier(bench)/Felipe Lopez(bench)
Adam Jones/Jair Jurrjens/Dustin Durscherer
My pitching is great....I can afford to give Ervin up
Yeah I would do this trade. Jurrjens is pretty solid overall and Durscherer when he comes back could be a nice sleeper but you have plenty of pitching. I think Jones is a little over his head right now but this trade makes too much sense not to do. Please see my post on E. Santana and Blalock for Bay
Absolutely do this.
Adam Jones is a talented player and will continue his breakout year. While Jurrjens probably won't keep an ERA around 2.00, he is a very good, young pitcher who will put up similar or better numbers than Santana.
He was clogging up a DL spot on my team because there's still no word on when he'll return. It's a great deal with him being the exception. On the upside, if he returns in similar fashion to last season then you've hit the jackpot! Right now though Ethier & Lopez combined don't equal Jones so enjoy the fruits of your labor.
