Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Need some advice, I was talking with another manager about trades and Im trying to rebuild my team because I came in last last year. Do you think this would be a good trade for me: I would be trading Hosmer, Lincecum, Andrus for Adam Jones and Anthony Rizzo. Thanks in advance
No, Andrus is very valuable, you can get a better prospect than Rizzo for him alone. Maybe you could pry away another SP, or you could just continue to try to get guys like Zack Wheeler or Tijuan Walker who should be in the player pool this year.

Hanley will have SS eligibility so I don't have to worry about that. I had been trying to trade lincecum since the middle of last season and just haven't gotten a deal done. Zack Wheeler has also been one of my big prospect targets.
I wouldn't do it, doesn't make sense. You don't really need the OF help so why trade for Adam Jones and Rizzo is nice but you already have a talented young 1B with Hosmer. Don't give up on Hosmer.
I wouldn't mess with your infield, it's solid and with Myers your OF will be good too.
You could use another SP, so if it were me I would focus on that, not adding a bat since you don't need them. You are pretty deep at 3B, which is great since 3B is going to be very shallow this season with Bautista and Encarnacion no longer having 3B eligibility. Use one of those 3B to add a SP.
my team is as follows:
C- Carlos Santana
1B- Eric Hosmer
2B- Jason Kipnis
3B- Hanley Ramirez
SS- Elvis Andrus
OF- Todd Frazier
OF- Nelson Cruz
OF- Michael Morse
Util- Pablo Sandoval
Util- David Freese
BN- Wil Myers
SP- Jon Niese
RP- Mariano Rivera
RP- Ernesto Frieri
P- Shelby Miller
P- Hiroki Kuroda
P- Aroldis Chapman
P- Joe Nathan
BN- Brian Wilson
BN- Brandon Beachy
BN- Matt Harvey
BN- Max Scherzer
Btw i know my pitching is horrible and im trying to remedy that but people in my league hoard pitchers and overvalue players so its hard to get deals done

I think you have a very nice team, I actually love it. I wouldn't make tat trade, but I would dump lincecum. I think you've got a real talented team in a couple more years. You drafted young ride it out and build on it.
to me, if hanley is still SS eligible, then it works...the other thing to think about is what pitcher do you think lincecum will be going forward? if you can plug hanley in at SS (which im not sure on how your league decides this) and you dont have faith in Tim, then it is a good rebuilding move. Jones and Rizzo are both young stars that should have bright futures ahead of them. Every yr. there is plenty of talent that comes from no where on the pitching side. Good luck with your decision!
