need help with trade please

Postby award1 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 4:35 pm

Ive been offered the following trade. Nelson Cruz for Jay Bruce, Joe Mauer, And Frank Fransisco. At first glance the trade looks like a no brainer for me in my opinion. Problem is with my established team already. Couple of side notes. 16 team unlimited keeper. Instead of average we account for ops. Two utility spots. Heres my problem. Im already rostering Carlos Santana, so essentially acquiring mauer would only give me a trade option for a catcher. Im worried that by making the trade ill corner myself into a position where ill be carrying too many offensive players. In our league many teams will throw out a ton of pitchers and have no extra offensive players. We account for holds so a need for multiple bullpen guys is a must. My team pretrade

Carlos Santana
Joey Votto
Brian Roberts
Yunel Escobar
A Ramirez
Pablo Sandoval
Ian Stewart
Nelson Cruz
C Granderson
Hunter Pence
Austin Jackson
By making this trade i have to have two bench players. Do i make the trade? If so do i retain Austin Jackson. I like his upside but he will be riding my bench as I dont see him winning a utility spot over Sandoval, Stewart, or Carlos Santana.

Thanks everyone

I would absolutely do that trade. I would have no problem letting Jackson go.

This is a no brainer. Take it and don't overanalyze it. ;-D

I would take the trade and worry about which pieces to keep/move later.

You can never have too many good players. Make the deal and then worry about any subsequent trades you'll have to make.

You are scopping hte most value here. Do it and adjust later. Jackson looks expendable to me.

Help me.
