Commissioner Corner Message Board
As you all know, Chris Sale is pretty much dominating thus far this year in his first season as a starter. And not surprisingly, I've had many trade offers come my way for him. So I am just wondering where everyone here on the message boards feel his trade value is at right now? What caliber of players should I be expecting in return for him if I was to pull the trigger on a deal? I would like to unload him for the right price, because I have to think he's going to be either facing an innings count, or is going to hit a wall at some point.
What are your thoughts on this?
No phony math in my mind. Heres some math for you, hitters play 6-7 games per week as opposed to pitchers 1 sometimes 2. Thats why hitters more valuable. Plus top hitters are more consistent with their numbers then top pitchers. Of course pitching is important, but why do you think top hitters have a better O Rank than top pitchers. Guess those rankings are wrong every single year lol.
Hamilton, CarGo, Braun, Miggy Cabrera, Votto, and maybe Adam Jones 1 for 1..
If someone would trade you Mike Trout and another top 20 hitter, then I'd consider that.
Realize you have the #1 Pitcher of the season.. so, expect no less than a top 5 hitter or a good package.
