Tabata Trade Possiblity

Postby MaudDib » Mon Feb 02, 2009 3:03 pm

I am in a Dynasty league with 15 player minor league rosters. I have been offered a trade of Napoli and either Tabata or my first pick in next years minor draft for Manny Parra. I have no major needs on my major league roster but wanted to get Parra because I think he could have a pretty year. I don't need Napoli and I have plenty of OF depth. My question basically comes down to how good is Tabata? I know he is 19 but his numbers are less than thrilling although it is at AA. He once was a 5 tool player but is that 20/20 or 10/10? The first round pick isn't huge because Strasburg, Alex White, Green and Ackley are already gone. Any thoughts?

I say do it. If you don't need Napoli then I wouldn't hold this trade up for Tabata. He's still an intriguing prospect, but I'll take the closer to sure thing in Parra.

How many teams is the league? I'm guessing that you can replace Tabata with solid prospect (albeit lesser) also.

People value Parra in a 10 team league? I don't know it seems like not much especially with your roster, keep the pick ... no matter where you finish you got Top 10 talent from next years draft, I'd want that more.
