Should I trade Jose Reyes and Pablo Sandoval for Evan Longoria and Jacoby Ellsbury? I already have Inge at C and my backup SSs are Felipe Lopez and Erick Aybar. Ellsbury would also push Carlos Pena to my bench, where Aaron Hill already sits, but that gives me a chance to shop Pena/Hill for a SS.
Seems like a no brainer to me, since Reyes doesn’t look like he’ll provide much value from here on out, but looking more closely, Pablo is 17th overall over the past month, and Evan and Ellsbury hit .232 and .259 over that time. I’m in first, so no reason to shake things up, but Ellsbury for Reyes seems like a good switch to me, whether it leaves me thin as SS or not. Otherwise I could just stick with Reyes and be ridiculously strong at every position, assuming he comes back in form.
My team: Inge, Morneau, Phillips, Sandoval, Aybar, Ibanez, Victorino, Pence, Pena (UTIL). BN - Hill, Lopez, Reyes (DL)
