Bryce Harper and Elvis Andrus for Jose Reyes?

Postby rlrtwins » Thu Mar 24, 2011 10:52 am

I was trying to upgrade in SS and have a good shot at the title in my league this year. Due to my strong minor league roster and initial draft in my Dynasty I have been able to establish a near power house. I came in second in my league last year and want to push for the title. I am considering trading Bryce Harper and Elvis Andrus for Jose Reyes. Would you do it? Keep in mind I also have Anthony Rendon in my minor league system.

I realize my pitching needs work but thats easy enough in this leageu from the waiver wire. I'm not going to pay for holds now and will make a few moves as the season progresses. Any thoughts you haev are welcome and thank you in advance!

The league is a 6x6 with 14 teams
Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)
Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

1b Prince Fielder

I wouldn't do this trade.

First off......elvis andrus for jose reyes could be an upgrade.....but also potentially a downgrade. Im not sold on Reyes and his hype. The Mets are in disaray, and his status of even finishing the season with the mets is in jeapordy. If he gets off to a hot start theres a good chance he can get traded b\c they don't have the $ to sign him next year. Also the fact that he is a HUGE injury risk every year.

Harper, wait to see whats going on with him in the minors before you dump him. If he starts ripping up the minors, well then trade him off (if you are in position to win it) for a stud bat alone. I would wait it out, let the season get going.....you will have a much better idea of guys values once it gets going.
