Yes at first this trade looks lopsided and not in my favor however right now I have V-Mart at catcher, Lowell at 3B and Votto at 1B whos on the DL. All positions are question marks to finish the season healthy.
Enter Sandoval who has eligibility at all positions, and batting .300+ avg right now.
Now if you say WW would be better just take in consideration that the best 1b available is LaRoche, Butler , and Overbay...(an I have Overbay right now subbing in for Votto at 1B.
The other half of this is my pitching right now is deep...I have Grienke, Shields, Harrang, G. Floyd, Oswalt, Escobar and Wandy Rodriguez with only 5 starting spots. So losing Kazmir doesnt kill me.
Last, Im not so sure Holiday is going to be all that effective this year, while Pence is looking great batting around Tejada, Carlos Lee, and M. Bourne.
The other owner is baking on a recovered Kazmir and a trade from a big market team for Holiday.
However I dont want to lose out on a repeat of HOlliday's 07 year in a hitters ball park like yankee stadium.
So im torn, any help is appreciated. and of course WHIR...
