Torii Hunter for Ian Stewart? WHIR

Postby CubsFan7724 » Mon Mar 21, 2011 5:07 pm

16 team H2H league, with OBP instead of AVG and SLG as a 6th cat.

My team

C - Soto
1B - Ike Davis
2B - Uggla
SS - Hanley Ramirez
3B - Headley
CF - Rasmus
OF - Bruce
OF - Nelson Cruz
UTIL - Torii Hunter
UTIL - Pierre

SP - Hamels
SP - Marcum
RP - Broxton
RP - Meek
P - Billingsley
P - Edwin Jackson
P - Derek Holland
P - Randy Wells
BN - Veneble
BN - Freese
BN - Guerrier
BN - Balfour
BN - Saito
Bn - Melancon
BN - Smoak

My 3B are obviously terrible and Ian Stewart can be sneaky good in this format. Hunter and Stewart project out to be pretty similar in the counting stats, with Hunter likely having a superior OBP, and about equal in SLG. Stewart obviously has a bit more potential to exceed those numbers. I'd be trading fairly similar results for one at a scarcer position, but would lose a solid UTIL hitter and backup CF. Waiver wire to replace Hunter is kind of barebones, Bourjos and Maybin are probably the best OF options. THen again, finding a solid 5th OF probably would be easier than finding a 3B. Pull the trigger on the offer?

Thats a great trade for you.

Hunter is on the downturn of his career and I see Stewart taking another step forward this season. 18HR's in 380AB's is not too shabby. Projected over 500AB's will give you some nice numbers at a position that is really thin this year.

Check mine if you can?

Good move, if for no other reason than i like your OF a lot and a backup to Headley would be nice.

Seth Smith is also on the wire, who I think I'll grab if this trade goes through, though I'd have to drop a pitcher most likely

Sounds good.

Even without Stewart's upside and Hunter's eventual power regression I'd say it's a safe trade to make under the circumstances given.

Stewart osmt all that. In fact, I never draft him. Although I dont do H2H and I dont know about these other stats.

Hunter is getting old, but hes Mr Consistent. So unless he takes a nose-dive this year, he will have similar stats. Although perhaps slightly lower than previous years.

Id rather try my luck in the wire.
Hope Freese does well. Look at the wire for:
McGehee if hes there (doubt it)
Sandoval (doubt it)
Scott Rolen (possible)
Uribe (possible)
C Johnson (likely on wire)
Encarnacion

Its better than desperately making a bad trade for a guy that might be slightly better than what you have. Better to trade a bonafide player for a guaranteed good 3B than this...
I love mock drafts.
