If your pitching has the depth I could absolutely see making this move.

It's not a NL only league.

It does thin out my pitching a bit for this year. It's a 16 teamer and I'd have to do some waiver wire spot starting to make up for Snell being gone.

Snell got his big payday and now seems to be slumping.

I've read comparisons to LaPorta are a right handed hitting Dunn with a higher batting average.

I would definitely do the trade. My only concern would be, that the Brewers are pretty crowded at the moment and if he doesn't get traded you might have to wait some time until they find him a spot they are comfortable with.

Guys...the deal has changed . My trade partner now wants Victorino for LaPorta. I am OK at CF for the moment with Fred Lewis. Plus I get plenty of steals from Furcal.

I had Victorino on the DL and I was shopping Fred Lewis origianally.

If I think that I'm OK at steals, should IO pull the trigger on this ???

Oh, I also have Bruce coming up to play CF at some point this year and hets SB also.

I'm really high on LaPorta. He also has a spot open in Milwaukee once he shows that he is ready to make the jump. I would do the deal, if you are comfortable with playing for the future.

I would absolutely trade Victorino for LaPorta.

Definitely. LaPorta will be a fantasy monster.

....?? what spot is that ? corey hart's in RF ? pfielder's at first base ? ryan braun's in left ? and the brewers are not going to put braun back at 3B---you do realize that laporta isnt even on their 40 man roster
