Did i make a good trade?

Postby Cali Redneck » Fri Apr 27, 2018 2:51 pm

With a major hole in my roster at 1B thanks to the struggles of Ryan Zimmerman and a whole lot of nothing on waivers I felt like i had to make a move, so I traded Francisco Lindor straight up for Jose Abreu.

Before the trade, all I had at 1B was Ryan Zimmerman and Yuli Gurriel. After giving up Lindor, i still have Gleyber Torres and Marcus Semien at SS.

Thoughts?

I think you panicked. I would have held on to Lindor.

I think almost anyone would take Lindor over Abreu, so you'll probably have many people saying its a bad trade. Personally, I wouldn't have made that deal, BUT so much of what makes a trade good isn't simply the players, but how they fit on a given team. If you are saying you'd have had Semien on your bench, I don't really mind the deal given that Abreu+Semien is comparable to Zimmerman+Lindor. The thing is however, it's still probably just a lateral move so I'd not have made it, but that certainly doesn't mean it can't work out well for you. Just cross your fingers that Semien keeps performing so well!

Thoughts on mine?

If its a keeper I would much rather have Lindor mainly because he steals bases. Abreu quietly puts up solid numbers .

Not a terrible deal since Abreau is a great hitter and you gain on average and home runs but SS is a lot harder to find than 1B I agree with the other responses. I might have not panicked and waited for Zimmerman to turn it around and kept Lindor but Abreau is great. What's done is done. Good luck.

Not a bad trade but I would prefer Lindor also.

Help with mine?
