A trade I have to do?

Postby AdmiralTrey » Thu May 27, 2010 8:12 pm

This is a league in which I'm first in 4/5 offensive categories (And 2nd in the other) and I'm dead last in ERA/WHIP and 2nd to last in Wins and K's.

The trade is Adam Jones and Josh Johnson for my Nelson Cruz and Jhoulys Chacin. We've been offering stuff back and forth for a while, and he just offered me the aforementioned deal.


Team:
Pablo Sandyvag
Yahoo 5x5 Standard Roto

C - Kurt Suzuki
1B - Ryan Howard
2B - Robinson Cano
3B - Evan Longoria
SS - Elvis Andrus
OF - Justin Upton
OF - Jason Heyward
OF - Nelson Cruz
UTL - Adrian Gonzalez
UTL - Stephen Drew
Bench - Andre Ethier, Rajai Davis, Adrian Beltre

SP - Tim Hudson, John Ely, Tom Gorzelanny, C.J. Wilson, Jhoulys Chacin, Jon Garland
RP - Ryan Franklin, Billy Wagner, Matt Capps, Chad Qualls




Am I right to be absolutely excited given the fact that Cruz's hammy might be in trouble (And I have Ethier to replace him, anyway...) and Adam Jones is hitting .292 in May while gaining an ace which I so desperately need?
Am I wrong to selfishly not want to trade Nelson Cruz because he's awesome?

2017 - 2nd place. Finished regular season 5 games ahead of 2nd place but lost in the playoffs.
2016 - 1st place. Finished regular season 1.5 games behind 1st but won in the playoffs

It doesn't look like your team has any room to play Adam Jones. Especially if Ethier is back next week.

I agree and would try for a more workable deal.

Cruz may be landing on the DL himself. I would do this trade ... Josh is the help you need.

Yeah, Adam Jones I don't really care about at all. If anything, I can flip him later in the year if he continues playing well, which is what I'd be hoping to do. My only concern is that if you double Chacin's starts, he's got numbers comparable to Josh Johnson...

I might keep trying to work something out with him, but if Cruz goes on the DL that's going to be tough to do, which is why it feels like a trade I have to do right now.


Would Cruz for Johnson straight up be better?
