Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Actually Zimmerman is my trird baseman and Lowrie is a ultity player!I didnt bring up trade!All this started with a offer for me getting Soriano and trading off Danks then he came back with it
I don't need an opinion, i have an indisputable fact.
There are only 4 players in all of baseball under the age of 30 that have finished ranked in the top 25 more than 3 times.
Miguel Cabrera, Ryan Braun, Hanley Ramirez and David Wright.
Now you may say that we don't play in the past and i'd agree. However this does speak to the caliber of player we are talking about. When healthy David Wright is elite whereas Lawrie has yet to play even half of a big league season yet. When people talk about Lawrie the say hes the NEXT Ryan Braun or David Wright. Well Ryan Braun and David Wright STILL PLAY and are STILL YOUNG, why take the guy that COULD BE GREAT over the guy that ALREADY IS?
ok Happy and anyome else heres full team
open of to fill after recnt trade
B lawrieand L Duda Ulitity

Forget Wright... Trade for OF. Post top options on FA too... there's gotta be better options than Morneau...
You've got a killer rotation. I'd see about packing Buchholz or Morrow in a trade with either Garza or Lawrie for OF help and a catcher like Molina who's consistently good but often underrated.
Personally, as a starter I wouldn't take either of them if I could avoid it. Lawrie is an unproven risk - yes, yes, he hit well in his short callup and he rakes in the minors. But how many times have we seen that, with great expectations put on them, to see them underperform or completely flop? Often... it's the game of baseball.
Likewise, you don't know from year to year now what Wright will show up. Add to that injuries, and I'd much prefer someone like Sandoval who doesn't have the ceiling, but has the floor. If you can get both, or one of them as a backup, then great! I'd call it a tie given both of them having risk with high upside.
