Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I could get Adam Jones, David Wright, and Hiashi Iwakuma for my Yu Darvish, Stephen Strasburg and Coco Crisp. It would hurt my SP's but my offense would be amazing!! What do you think? Is it worth it?
My SP's after the trade: Hisashi Iwakuma, Jon Lester, Mike Minor, A.J. Burnett, Alfredo Simon, Aaron Harang, Ervin Santana, and Tim Lincicum.
Ryan: I'd keep my SP's as is ,man! Maybe see what you could get,offensively, for Harang,Santana and Burnett(Possibly Simon too). Possibly Simon/Santana for a good offensive player,maybe 2 decent ones. IMO if you lose Strasburg and Darvish,even with Iwakuma in return, your SP's would be a lot weaker top to bottom. Good luck
That trade has great value for your team, but i don't think it will improve your team. I think Iwakuma is a tier below Darvish and Stras, but is still a valuable fantasy pitcher. With that said, I think it will be a big mistake counting on Iwakuma, Lester, and Minor to carry your pitching staff.
Looks great to me. Iwakuma and Strasburg are comparable SPs but you may lose a few Ks but gain a better ERA and WHIP. So you are basically getting Jones a 1st round pick and Wright for Yu. Crisp should be on waivers.
I think you are giving away the better ROS players. If David Wright was the top tier 3B he once was I would do this deal in a heartbeat...but Wright is simply not that good anymore. Coco Crisp is actually higher rated than Wright....I would keep what you have or at least take Yu or Stras out of the deal.
