Who is more valueable? WHIR

Postby beisbol4ever94928 » Sat Jan 19, 2013 2:27 pm

16 team dynasty league h2h.

I am shopping a first baseman and I need a second baseman.

So, who do you, my fellow baseball cafe members, recommend I trade?

Swisher (3yrs/5m)
Morneau (3yrs/3m)

Both are relegated to a back up role. Swisher can also play RF for me. My only other pure right fielder at the moment is Werth, but I also have Hamilton who will likely qualify for RF as well.

I have no second baseman and the few remaining in the draft aren't very enticing. I am more then likely going to offer one of Swisher/Morneau for Kolten Wong.

Thoughts?

Hmnn... not crazy about either guy. I'd keep Morneau and trade Swisher. Swisher is no longer in a good Yankees lineup with a short right field fence. He's also more expensive. Maybe Morneau can have a comeback year since he's better healthwise.

Thanks! That is where I am leaning as well, but thought I would get more input.

Trade whichever one lands you a good 2B. I don't think it matters which one you trade. Offer up Swisher but if he wants Morneau then fine whatever.

Be open to whomever gets you the best deal, and I would think that would be Swisher, considering his dual position eligibility and Yankee-driven numbers from the past two years.

I would think that Swisher brings you the most value too. I think that Morneau has the better season. Move Swisher now if you can and watch Morneau return to former glory.

I dont know who has more value I personally wouldnt deal much for either. Id say deal Swisher because I think he will get you the most value.
