Been talking to a Bautista owner about flipping Pujols for him...very concerned about the plantar fasciatis (sp?) after watching him hobble around the bases for the past week.
Been offered Pence/Swisher/Bautista for my Pujols/Choo/Ethier, which I'm obviously not going to take, but the owner is a Jered Weaver owner so struggling badly with arms.
He has a few other tasty bats like Matt Adams, Swisher, Moustakas, Zobrist, Marte, Markakis, Pence, a good arm in Fister (he won't move Minor), prospects like Buxton, Arenado, Hultzen
I'd be happy to get rid of Ethier, but I heart Choo (and flipped Swisher and Beachy to land him from the same owner in the offseason) and think I should hold out for a bigger upgrade if I do, in fact, move Albert.
Does any combination of his guys seem like a good return for Pujols/Ethier? I was thinking of proposing Bautista/Adams/Marte, with me dropping Valdespin or Venable, or Bautista/Adams/Pence.
Either of those work for you guys? Or just keep my fingers crossed Pujols can gut it out for the rest of the year?
