Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
So, I've been offered a deal of
Troy Tulowitzki and Robinson Cano
Chase Utley and Jon Lester
I get 15 keepers, and they look to be -
C - Joe Mauer
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Chase Utley
3B - Chone Figgins
OF - Carl Crawford
OF - Jason Kubel
OF - Chris Coghlan
Util - Kendry Morales
SP - Zack Greinke
SP - Chris Carpenter
SP - Jon Lester
SP - Josh Beckett
SP - Ryan Rowland-Smith
RP - Huston Street
RP - Joakim Soria
Good deal? It gives me a solid young shortstop and a good young 2B, but I don't want to give up Lester.
wow, close trade. Im a big Utley and Lester fan, but i still take it. You could use an extra power bat, and the hitters are safer than pitchers.
Last year Cano hit 40 points higher than Utley, with 9-6-8-18 less R-HR-RBI-SBs. I would guess Utley doesnt run as much, and he's been getting hurt a lot recently. Cano gets to play in that great lineup, in the great park. I still think Utley is one of the 5 best players of the last 5 years, but he's trending the wrong way.
first off how did you get mauer,pujols,and utley in a keeper league?
and i wouldnt do that trade, unless you think your team is too strong and you want to give other teams a chance... in other words- dont do it.
This is a fair value trade....
Tulo = Utley
Cano = Lester
Its really a matter of preference. I does suck to lose Lester, but you would gain the 2nd best SS. You do need a SS. This is not really a make or break deal....
