Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

I would not do this deal as I consider Price and Bum the 2 best pitching prospects in baseball.

I would not do this trade.

The guys entire Farm Club is pitchers!

Who is going to play 1B if he moves Davis? Butler?

I always value hitting more than pitching, and Davis has shown that he can hit at an MLB level (small sample size I know).

I would rather keep his current MLB pitching that is already good, young, and likely improving, supplement with his MILB pitching which is riddled with #2 and #3 type starters and stick with Davis at 1B.

But you are putting yourself in a hole towards that exact goal by making this trade.

I understand the attraction to do this trade, and in a vacuum I would certainly do it, but I feel that he already has a top flight pitching staff.

He might not have a true "ace", but he has at least 8 #2 starters already, and a few of those guys have ace potential.

I don't think that this team needs to make this trade.

while i do love price and madbum i think that this trade doesn't really help out his team for the long run- all of the minors on the team are pitching prospects who are less likely to pan out than hitting prospects- you already have an established hitter in davis and moving him would be a mistake. Matsuz while not on the same level as bumgarner or price still have great potential- i don't think this trade is what this team needs- i think i would be looking to move some of the minor league pitching guys and get some OF hitting prospects

Keep in mind that the team getting Price could deal him. I think I'd rather have Price than Davis in dynasty league, I think anyways, lol.

I'd do it

Price>Davis
Bumgarner>Matsuz

As Havok said, you could always trade Price. Besides, you already have Butler and he has lots of upside.
