    Could be a season winning trade..

    My team ios stacked and the only weak position is catcher. I have a chance to trade from my team ,
    CC Sabathia and M. Morse for J. Jurrjens and P. Sandoval.
    The only way I make this trade is that Pablo gets catcher eligibility. Is he for sure going to get it? Otherwise I have M. Cabrera, B. Zobrist, M.Cuddyer, E. Longoria, M. Moustakas for my 1st and 3rd base options.

    • none of the players mentioned are going to impact your numbers that much. this is not a "season winning trade" either way. sabathia/morse or jurrjens/sandoval...no big deal either way. your best bet is to watch the pitching matchups every night. get those lefty hitters out when they face a south paw pitcher. also, be aware of where the games are played. if you have players in your lineup playing in san diego, san francisco, or seattle....bench them no matter who they are. conversely if you have players playing in cincinnati, yankee stadium, or philadelphia....get them in the lineup no matter who they are. quit worrying about one particular player vs. another particular player in a trade. take the players you have and insert them in the lineup nightly when it makes sense to do so. hint...all pitchers love starting in san diego and seattle. it doesnt really matter if its sabathia, jurrjens, or bronson arroyo. they will all have low era and whip in those ball parks. dont be a dork!

    • nobody knows for sure if he will start 5/play 10 games at C. Wait until he does to trade for him
