I just got offered Pedroia for Eithier

Postby Doug Ault » Fri May 08, 2009 12:26 am

I'm a little thin at midfield with Callaspo,Sanchez and Felipe(sometimes utility) rotating at mi and 2nd,and Aviles planted on the bench.Reyes at ss.

I'm not exactly stacked in the of, with Victoriano,Dye,Hawpe,Ethier,and Cameron starting,Byrd,Byrnes and Fowler on my bench.I just picked up Gutierrez.

I could slide Dunn into the of,but I have no extra corner infielders.Ideally I should trim a middle infielder for an extra ci,but I'm not sure Pedroia is going to put up 10 hr's, let alone 17,which leaves him as basically a run scoring and average machine and not much else.Is Eithier for real?

opinions welcome

I agree with you about Pedroia- he's overrvalued. You know what you need in your life? Some Brandon Phillips, that's what.

There are few guys getting statistically more unlucky than him right now so his value is really depressed. His position in that lineup is very stable so you don't have to worry about him getting dumped to 8th or something.

I would not give up Ethier to get him and you won't have to. That's the best part about the whole thing. I would try to dump one or two outfield scrubs on the guy and see what happens. I would be aggressive about this trade because once Phillips starts to hit he'll be inifnitely more expensive.

Phillips fell into my lap two weeks ago on another team for Bonifacio and Snider, I don't see getting that lucky again, he has finally kicked into gear.

ok,I declined the offer, now he has countered offering:

Pedroia and Cruz for Nathan and Ethier

I actually find this even less interesting, no?
