Accept it??

Postby Beane Disciple » Sat May 09, 2009 7:16 am

Trying to upgrade the pitching staff and I got offered a pretty intriguing trade:

Give up:

Granderson
Price


Get:

Jurrjens
Bruce


Positives: I have been trying to go Werth and Price for a pitcher. In this trade I give up Granderson who's a lot more valuable than Werth but I also get Jay Bruce. My quest to trade for a pitcher has been tough because the values just aren't there- Granderson is worth too much to trade for a lot of the arms I'm targeting. Bruce could be packaged more usefully to pick up a guy like Josh Beckett probably.

Negatives: Jurrjens has pitched better than what he ought to have so far. Also I have done a lot of homework on Price and it looks like he could be called up within a week or two and by June at the latest. Upon this official announcement his value will obviously spike. Also this trade does not do one thing that I need it to: open up a roster spot for me. Now I have to turn around and go 2 for 1 (package Bruce and someone) to get another player.

I feel like this is an even value trade but it doesn't do what I want it to. My gut feeling is to hold out until Price gets called up and put into the rotation and trade him then unless I can make a 2 for 1 trade in the meantime that fits my team better.

I'd say no thanks Jurrjens BABIP is very low and will correct itself soon. I don't think you're getting enough of a pitching upgrade.

Go get Kevin Slowey cheap - his BABIP is wayy high and soon you'll reap the rewards of a low WHIP and a good ERA.

I tried my #$@ off for Slowey and this guy wouldn't give him up. Thank you for confirming my doubts about Jurrjens and this trade in general. When Price gets the callup I'll get my upgrade.
