Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm covered at SS with Desmond and need help at 1B.
Hate giving up Prado's flexibility, but it might be worth it.
What do you think?
I think you lose that trade. Gomez is a middle tier OF at best and Jennings is just a little above him. Obviously Papi is a stud.. Pence is better than Jennings and Gomez and so is Prado (flexibility is huge) and Rollins still puts up good numbers...
Check out my BIG trade - Is Harvey for real?!?!?! post..
Are you #$%$ dense? Hell no!
You keep Rollins and Scutaro no matter what.
Hell...last year I had Reyes, Rollins, Desmond, and Prado and would not have traded any of them.
Rollins is 100 runs, 15+ HR, and 25+ SBs.
Prado is a .300 BA with 80 runs, 10+ HR, and 80 RBIs.

Why wudnt u trade one of your 4 SS if it upgraded you significantly at another position? It's a waste stockpiling bats eligible at one position and at Util. Though I agree in this trade you're only getting OF scrubs outside of Ortiz.
I like your side (with Prado) better. Maybe try to work out a trade to get a 1B using just Rollins? I don't know that I could advise trying to do an Ortiz for Rollins trade because of Ortiz's injury history. Maybe try a 1B ranked closer to Rollins like Adrian Gonzalez or Freeman?
Please answer my post regarding trading Konerko for Headley. Thanks!
