What do you guys think about this trade...I have my doubts but it is tempting..... My players Albert Pujols, StL 1B Send Pablo Sandoval, SF 1B
His players Receive Brian McCann, Atl C Receive Ryan Braun, Mil OF Receive Evan Longoria, TB 3B Receive Yovani Gallardo, Mil SP
Roto League with standard stats cat...This is a keeper league on ESPN....
C. Doumit 1st Pujols 2nd Uggla 3rd Pablo Sandoval SS Troy Tul OF Hunter Pence OF Ichiro OF Ryan Ludwick Utl Jorge Cantu
Bench Players OF Vlad Guerrero (DL) SS 2nd Asdrubal Cabrera OF Ryan Church 3rd Alex Gordon
Pitchers P Mariano Rivera P Sean Burnett SP A.J. Burnett SP Aaron Harang SP Jared Weaver SP Chan Ho Park RP RP Kerry Wood RP Francisco Cordero RP Peter Moylan Bench pitchers SP Derek Lowe SP Ervin Santana SP Jordan Zimmerman DL Edinson Volquez DL Pedro Martinez DL Edinson Volquez
I like the value you'll get back but you'll leave a big hole at 1B. I'd probably look to tweak the trade a little to acquire his current 1B.
61* 70**73**762*** MVP****AL07,AL05,NL04,ALNL03,ALNL02,NL01,ALNL00,AL99,ALNL98,ALNL96 RIP Cammi Cmon Bud NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug testing program down Fehr's fat throat and save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
As hard as it is to trade AP, I'd do that deal. Besides the two huge keeper bats you get back, you get an upgrade at catcher (not that Doumit's a chump, himself), and Yovani becomes your ace from day 1. I'd do the deal, then try to move some players for an upgrade at 1b (not an elite guy, just an upgrade).
As bad as I hate trading Pujols, that is the type of deal that it takes to move Mr. Pujols. As long as you keep more then 2 players, I would definitely do that deal and land Braun and Longoria for the long run.
