Who to pick up?

Postby Diamond Miners » Fri Apr 10, 2009 3:08 pm

I'm looking at trading Bumgarner for Sandoval because I'm trying to make a run this year and need the backup 3B / DH option.

If I do, who should I pick up for my 2nd minor league slot?
Pedro Alvarez
Mike Moustakas
Brett Wallace
Derek Holland

Alvarez... but I wouldn't make that trade in the first place. Although if Alvarez is free to pick up you definitely should try to get him..do you have any minor leaguers other than Bumgarner who you could drop for him?

G.Beckham who I'm hoping gets the call this season. I'll be able to pick up Alvarez before anybody else does. Nobody really watches minor leaguers until they get pulled up anyways. But because Bumgarner is late 2010 to 2011 before getting the call I'm looking at trading him to one of the guys high on him for an impact for this year.

Bumgarner is tradeable for Alvarez straight up. It's a shame Alvarez is sitting on your leagues wire.

Trade Bumg for an asset this season, and pick up another top 10 prospect while you're at it. No brainer. Of course, if the other guy is high on Bum, you could get more than Pablo for him....

Agreed...if you're looking to get someone who'll contribute this season, you could do a lot better than Pablo.
