Delmon Young for Mark Reynolds? WHIR

Postby Baldrick » Mon Mar 21, 2011 9:32 pm

Was offered Reynolds for Delmon Young. I'm without a 3B at this point in time and my only other options are to pick up Ian Stewart or Edwin Encarnacion with my final draft pick (no adds/drops during the season...trades only). Or figure out what to offer the manager who has both Longoria and Wright.

Yahoo has them ranked 89 and 90, and in my eyes it looks as though I'd be giving up AVG and RBI for HR.

12 team, H2H, 5x5, dynasty with no moves during the season outside of trades...

Roster:

C Jesus Montero
1B Mark Teixeira
2B Kelly Johnson
3B
SS Derek Jeter
OF Adam Lind
OF Mike Stanton
OF Michael Bourn
UT Paul Konerko
BN Adam Dunn
BN Travis Snider
BN Delmon Young
BN Brett Lawrie

SP Jon Garland
SP Phil Hughes
SP Trevor Cahill
SP Gio Gonzalez
RP Jhoulys Chacin
RP Kevin Gregg
RP Brad Lidge
RP Drew Storen
BN Fernando Rodney

Probably a fair deal in a vacuum, but I don't think you can handle that AVG hit. You've already got Lind, Stanton, and Dunn. If you're going to bring Reynolds into the mix you can probably figure you're losing AVG most weeks.

Then again, it's not like Stewart or EE are really legit starters in a 12-team mixer, so maybe you pull the trigger and suck it up.

Well I'm debating between using my last pick on either Stewart or Arencibia (provided he is not taken before then).

This is such a tough call.

From my roster is there anyway I could even have a shot at getting Longoria or Wright? I'm figuring he'd be more apt to trade Wright over Longoria.

Dangling Tex might get you in the conversation for Wright. Dunn isn't that big a step down. I'd definitely consider Tex+something for Wright.
