Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I get Johnny Cueto & Mike Napoli. Is that a good trade for me???
My current catcher: AJ Pierzynski
My OFs: Carlos Gonzalez, Alex Rios, Michael Bourn, Alex Gordon, Josh Willingham, & Nick Swisher
My SPs: Adam Wainwright, Madison Bumgarner, Matt Latos, Yovanni Gallardo, Josh Becket, & Trevor Cahill
** I think Napoli is a slight upgrade to Pierzynski
** Alex Rios may be overvalued in terms of his projections this year
** Trading Rios moves Josh Willingham to a utility spot
** Adding Cueto gives me 5 quality SPs.
That trade sucks.
Rios is undervalued and has been since his ONE bad season. (similar to how Zach Greinke is overvalued due to his ONE good year)
Cueto is comparable to Kuroda. Don't think that Cueto is better than Kuroda.
You need to package Swisher, Bourn, and Cahill for some upgrades. None of them are worth owning and all three are constantly overvalued.
Pierzynski is going to outperform Napoli. Cueto is better than Kuroda, but not much. If Rios is anywhere near what he did last year and 3 years ago, you can't afford to lose him. I wouldn't do it. If you could do the same deal with Gordon, Bourn, or Willingham, do it.
