DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)20 team dynasty league trade: Coco Crisp + Alfredo Simon + Joaquin Benoit for Desmond + Craig Gentry + Jean Machi, fair trade or obvious winner?
(Jon from Detroit)
Depends a lot on the situations. In a vacuum I like the Desmond-Gentry-Machi side more, but it very much depends on need in my opinion. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-05-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I just traded Julio Teheran for Justin Verlander. Even trade or will Teheran continue to outperform Verlander ROS?
(cubfan131 from IA)
That's a perfect sell-high, buy-low. That phrase is used too often and usually unrealistically ("sell high on Alfredo Simon!" ... yeah cool, cuz I can totally get Stanton for him... GTFOHWTS!!!) I LOVE Teheran (he is my NL Cy Young pick), but there is at least *some* regression coming in those numbers while I believe Verlander will iron himself out as the season evolves. Might feel scary after last night from the pair, but I like it. (Paul Sporer)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which closer loses his job first, regardless of cause (injury/ineffectiveness/etc): Axford, Simon, Street, Wagner
(Andy from Chicago)
Alfredo Simon. John Axford's mustache precludes him from long-term ineffectiveness, and also acts as a self-healing miracle worker. (Marc Normandin)
