Overreaction alert? Braun+Wainwright 4 Adam Jones+Verlander

Postby mdgross50 » Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:50 pm

I almost choked on the watermelon jellybean I was savoring when I saw this trade on Day 1.5, but then I started wondering if it's as great a deal as it seems. Anyway, I did accept before he could withdraw it but wanted to solicit an opinion (you know how there are trades where you want a pat on the back? That's not the case here, by any means).

I think it's a pretty even deal, though I suppose I'd take the Braun side...

Verlander is a sexy man as you know from over drafting him but the deal is good for you

It's the first time I've ever taken a pitcher earlier than the 4th round. I guess he's sexy enough for someone to help me upgrade Jones to Braun and I just don't feel any remorse for downgrading him to Wainwright. I guess Grey has brainwashed me (but I still pay for saves, damnit!)
