Not in general, in this specific case...lol
I dealt Jed Lowrie and Matt Belisle for Rich Hill and Justin Maxwell
I have never asked for an opinion on a trade before but I'm curious to see what people think.
I'm in a 24 team DMB league and am a contender, needed a Lefty starter. We keep the players from year to year (20 plus 5 aaa players).
I figured I'd get some support onhere since most only talk shit about Lowrie. Personally, I really like him but I look at it like this...
Hill might help us win a playoff series or a championship this year, Lowrei AND Hill wont give me much next, and if Hill turns it around in 2009 he could end up being as good a big leaguer (or better) than Lowrie over the next 6-7-8 years... not high on Belisle at all...Maxwell has shown some glimpses in AA this year and could be the CF in Washiungton next year.
Of course Rich Hill was completely destroyed at Iowa tonight. I made the deal before that start. Any insight into what is wrong with the guy? I know he has complicated mechanics but I still have to figure he isnt washed up at age 28 dont I? Do you think he'll bounce back in 2009?
Will Rich Hill bounce back in 2009? I consider 2008 a lost cause after tonights start. Who will get the better in this deal in the long-run? We have Christian Guzman at Short in the short-tearm if that makes a difference... the team I delt Lowrie to has D
