Posey for Prado?

Postby JimmyD1979 » Sat Jun 19, 2010 5:56 pm

Yo guys, my team is in my sig. I've been offered Martin Prado for Buster Posey.

I have Buck to man my C position as well, but I like Posey's ability and how he plays every day.

Will Posey maintain his .300 average, or will he come back to earth?

Prado will give me a very nice bat, and insurance for Utley in case his knee problem actually is real.

Thoughts?

For 2010, I like Prado better. In a keeper, I like Posey better and it's not even close. One issue I see for you though ... Posey is your starter while Prado will sit on your bench. In effect, you're downgrading at C for a solid back-up plan at 2B. Given those circumstances, I'd pass on the deal for now.

Even with Mark Reynolds' recent struggles? I would use Prado as a moving piece for UTIL/2B as different guys have better or worse pitching matchups.

Or I turn around and trade one of my OF for a catcher better than Posey and then have Prado man my utility spot....

It just seems that Posey started off hot and now he's been struggling a bit. Worried they might have him on a short leash if it continues.

Those are fair points. Posey has been slowing down, but I think the Giants will stick with him for a while and don't want to shuttle him up and down. Reynolds has been playing hurt. Only he (and maybe the DBacks trainer) know the extent of it. I think he'll be fine.

If you can deal an OF (that is not as valuable as Prado) for a catching upgrade, then make the Posey/Prado deal. Like I said in my in initial response, Prado should be worth more than Posey for the rest of 2010.
