Hawpe for Aardsma?

Postby SwaggerJackers » Mon Apr 19, 2010 4:46 pm

Is that a good trade? I've got Kerry Wood on the DL so assuming he comes back and knocks Perez out of the picture I'll have an extra closer.

I could use some stability in my outfield and Hawpe seems to be worth a lot in OBP leagues.

As a blockbuster alternative, what about dealing Aardsma, Ibanez and Youk for Zimmerman and Hawpe?

I am not crazy about this move.

And the "blockbuster" deal is definitely a no-go. Rather have Youk over Zimmerman and Ibanez and Hawpe are pretty equal.

Yeah, Youk and Zimmy do have a similar line. You don't even think Hawpe is worth Aardsma? What about Valverde?

I don't mind the Hawpe for Aardsma deal... you can easily replace a closer down the road when someone gets torched or hurt - just play the WW closely.

I don't like the "blockbuster" option AT ALL.

Meh, I don't actually like Hawpe enough to pull the trigger on this. I like Aardsma more than a lot of guys though, and I'm not expecting a blow up.

Yes, upon further review, the Zimmy trade isn't a good one for me.

If my damn bats (Carlos Lee, Raul Ibanez) would start hitting like they're suppose to, I wouldn't care about trying to get an outfielder. As it stands, I'm playing Raj Davis, Frenchy and Kyle Blanks in my OF - that isn't exactly going to win me anything.

Being in 10th place sucks and I want out!

Patience my man, patience! We're only 20 days in to a 180 day season.
