Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Did you's guys hear about this kid in Chicago named Jose Abreu? He's got like 15HR and some bozo just offered to trade him to me for my Emilio Bonifacio! Do you guys think that's a good deal for me? Would it get vetoed? Oh wait...I thought this was a baseball forum, but it looks like I just mistakenly walked into the ladies bathroom and a bunch of girls are fighting over who's fake #$%$ look the best. Can we all just drop this sillyness and get back to baseball now? Thank you's one and all.

Abreu is on pace to hit 60HR. Moss is on pace to hit like 25. The truth is somewhere in the middle but I would suspect that Abreu will hit considerably more HR than Moss. They might end up with similar BA...but the HR & RBI totals should be significantly higher for Abreu.

They've been pitching him outside all year...he has 7 opposite field HR. I don't think he's going to hit 60 HR - but he has the ability to hit 40 - this year. I have seen enough MLB baseball to know a truly special hitter when I see one...and if you ever see this guy in person at the plate you instantly know he is special - even all the pro players say that about him. Go see him live...then come back and talk to us. I have been to 7 Sox games this year...this guy is as real as they come.

Start what? As long as the guys in front of him get on base and the guy behind him remains respectable...they HAVE to pitch to him. The White Sox have the best offense in the AL and it 's not just Abreu.

I am always amused when I see people saying "don't take Mark Trumbo". True HR sluggers are a real premium. Only 10 guys had 30 HR & 100RBI last year and Trumbo was one of them. I have Trumbo again for the 4th straight year. Quite frankly he is very likely to bash 35-40 bombs this year so don't listen to the Trumbomb haters!

Hey IU JIGGA...."hold him out for a few weeks"? where did you get that info about Janssen? I bet you own Santos and you're just HOPING they'll hold him out for a few weeks...lol

But I sure as hell bet you wouldn't have drafted Pujols with the #2 pick if you had the #2 pick. It's real easy to make predictions with 20/20 hind sight.

You were offered the #1 or #2 player in every draft, the greatest slugger in MLB over the last 10+ years, the guy who puts up MVP type stats year after year...and you have to ASK if you should accept the trade?

I had both last year...I have Hunter this year...I like Hunter better as a player but power is a premium in todays MLB. Moss hit 30HR last year...there were only 13 guys that hit 30 HR...Hunter will be in the 15-18HR range. I would rather have Moss.

What do you mean wait til they quit pitching to him? At least HALF of his HR are to the opposite field. The guy uses every inch of the plate and has power to go out no matter where the ball is pitched. Lucky to reach 30HR...now THAT is funny.

I keep passing over Hammel because my past experiences with him have been something like this---- add him, wake up next morning turn on puter, drop Hammel, hope my opponent starts someone who will give up 9 runs in 2 innings to balance out the damage Hammel did to me. McHugh I honestly just heard of him today. I think I will pass after looking at his Hammel-like career numbers.

Gonzalez has tendinitis in his knee so that has to be a concern going forward. Pujols is killing it and his numbers are better than CarGo's in every CAT - BA, R, HR, RBI. Who is your 1B after you trade Albert?

I agree...Dozier is likely to hit 30 HR and drive in 100 RBI and he's on pace to get over 35SB...I don't see this as a steal the other way at all.

I watch plenty...I'm just trying to understand what you are basing this on - that Moss Abreu will post comparable stat lines - when everything that both are producing says that is not the case.

Who replaces Gordon & Dozier in your lineup? What OF are you benching? I'm assuming Dozier was your 2B & Gordon was your SS. If you made this deal 5 weeks ago I think it would definitely be a steal...and it would probably have been vetoed. But now there is no question about whether Gordon or Dozier is for real. They are. Today however, the question is will Adam Jones hit 30HR, 100R, 100+ RBBI.
