Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Keeper, I wouldn't deal him.
Non keeper, the deal isn't bad, but I suspect you could sell Strasburg for more if you wanted. He'll be shut down before the end of the season so selling him would work well.
As for the Glaus/Strasburg for A-Rod deal, I doubt he does that. I would assume he needs SP help, but 3B is shallow, so unless he has a good one back or can find on in the pool, moving a 3B might be tough.
Hey Luke -
In a vacuum I'd be hesitant to trade away Strasburg for Romero and Wilson, but it depends on what the rest of your team looks like. Given that you're asking for Romero, you must need a pitching option. Maybe shoot for someone a bit better (David Price and maybe Carlos Santana).
If you are in a keeper league I'd take a wait-and-see approach with the kid. Despite the what the haters say about his level of competition so far, you have to admit, he has great stuff. If Cox pulls him .2 innings earlier in Atlanta, his line looks pretty good.
I have Strasburg in a 10-team, 4-player keeper league. Im sitting tight with Strasburg even if he is shut down mid-August. That approach helped me land Hanley Ramirez, Evan Longoria and Tim Lincecum. Stras might be a good #4.
Good luck, sorry for rambling.

I am trying to solidify my pitching staff by getting another closer and a SP...I need to improve on my IF as well...that's why i was also inquiring about stras and glaus for arod...
any suggestions rex?
Also, (IMHO) strasburg and glaus wont cut it for A-Rod. Glaus is having a nice season so far, but I doubt it lasts. You may as well make the offer though, maybe he will accept or counter.
depending on your needs i'd get as much as possible for strasburg. he's got an innings cap so dont expect him pitching too much after mid august. can you answer my post http://messages.fantasysports.yahoo.com/Fantasy_Sports/Baseball/threadview?m=tm&bn=fan-baseball-drafttalk&tid=1447557&mid=1447557&tof=3&frt=1
That's a toughy. I dont like strasburg that much cuz he was playing pirates and all those crappy teams. But I forecast he will get K's and a mid 3 era but they will shut him down a month early since washington wont be in contention
