And perform! Mets fans want to hear your take but all advise is wanted.
I trade SP Dan Straily and Martin Gonzalez
Zimmerman and Cespedes
Normally anno brainer but the hamstring scares me.
My team currently
SS Chris Owens
OF Gennett (2b and 3b)
Bn Castro (on DL till tomorrow)
SP Bumgardner (DL back tomorrow)
The two players I will drop for the DL are Fiers and Healy
I want Zimmerman but scared of Cespedes injury.
ticket. You have a chance to get top 10 OF production rest of season but who really knows. I think he's a great buy low candidate.
I'd be careful with Zimmerman. He's due for regression in the second half, has been a huge injury risk himself, and isn't certain to outperform Morrison rest of season.
Would you do this trade though? Yes or No?
format is, but I think that Zimmerman and Marwin Gonzales are sort of similar guys for 2nd half. Both had monster first halves, somewhat likely to regress, so you hope for the best with each. Seems like you like Zimmerman over Gonzales and that's fine.
Cespedes has a chance to provide a lot more value than Strailey down the stretch, even if it's risky. Your pitching looks pretty good as is, so I'd make the trade.
Is going to have a big 2nd half. He's too good a hitter not to. And he's healthy now. I think the All Star Game rest is going to benefit him.
He pulled back on Cespedes so we did a straight up Marwin Gonzalez for Zimmerman.
But could help me. Probably a wash
Cespedes seems more interested in body-building than in being a baseball player this year. Take a look at his body this year versus the summer the Mets acquired him two years ago. Much thicker.
You don't need to be built like Adonis to hit home runs and its wreaked havoc on his hamstrings all year. Fine, he's getting healthier and he'll likely get hot at some point - but he could also injure one again too and with the Mets firmly out of things, they may just shut him down the next reoccurrence.
