Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I am looking for an upgrade at SS over JJ Hardy. Ian Desmond is available. I love Posey, but I am thinking of offering this trade. I give Posey and Johnny Cueto for Ian Desmond, Jered Weaver, and Salador Perez. I love Perez's potential and I don't think Cueto can duplicate last season. What do you think?
Do the trade,then try to upgrade SS again by packaging Desmond with another player for like Starlin Castro,or HanRam;Depending on how big of a name player you package with Desmond.I'm not sold on Desmond,but he has a lot more trade appeal than Hardy.I call it going up the rankings ladder.One of your opponents may be completely sold on Desmond,and you could then cash in on his career year last season.But even if you can't trade Desmond he'll do better than Hardy,and Perez is awesome,he should post numbers right up there with Posey.
I don't think Desmond can duplicate last season. He was well over his highest SLG for any given year with a decent number of AB at any level. High K, low BB, highest BABIP of pro career. Not going to repeat.
