Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I just Traded Harper n Friers..( I was dropping him anyways) for
Latos and Elsbury...
Good trade or bad trade ????
My Outfielders now are Elsbury, Melky , Trumbo and Reddick...I'll play 3 of them
My pitching now is Mad Bum, Sale, Latos, Volsgenberg *giants pitcher *
I also have Petite and Gonzalez (Baltimore Pitcher) Diamond - DL SP
I think Harper is drastically overrated and still don't like the trade. You could have gotten more, and the whole point of trading would be to get someone reliable. I don't see the point of trading him for another risk player with high upside.
You got the better end of the deal, but it wasn't the best deal you could have gotten.

Melky is not on dope this year....just sayin....take him out of the equation. He will revert to the Melky he was before he got BUSTED! If you Trumbo is a risk you are crazy...he plays 3 positions and the Angels will KEEP his bat in the lineup...he is a legit 30HR 100RBI guy!
I think you could have gotten a better SP than Latos. However, since you did get Ellsbury back, I'm okay with the trade. I don't trust Harper or Ellsbury because either or both of them could have bad years, or they could have great years. You never know with these two. Plus, Ellsbury is always injury prone.
I do like the trade for you for getting Latos. He will give you 15+ wins & 180+ k's. Fiers is unpredictable.
Please answer my post regarding "How did I do in my draft?" Thanks!
Well - with Harper you aren't really sure what you will get - most people expect big things a Trout-like season if you will - others think the hype is much bigger than what he can live up to..
Elsbury is also uncertain - he had one massive power year and other than that he has been injured quite a bit so he is a very uncertain card as well..
If Elsbury repeats his one great year or gets close to it - while Harper thanks you are a genious - if it's the other way around - people will call you a tool for trading Harper - truth is probably somewhere inbetween.. If Elsbury can stay healthy and Latos does OK in Cincinatti I don't think you did too badly.. but those are some big ifs.. I believe more in that Latos does well than in Elsbury's health - but thats me..
