Votto/Fielder/Youk Trade Dilemma! WHIR

Postby MorseOverTaveras » Mon Mar 28, 2011 4:29 am

11 Team Roto, and my roster goes a bit something like this:
C: Montero
1B: Votto
2B: Weeks
3B: Reynolds
SS: Furcal
OF: McCutchen
OF: Stubbs
OF: C. Young
UTL: Prince Fielder
UTL: Youkilis

SPs: Carpenter, Gio Gonzalez. Beckett, Garza, De La Rosa, Stauffer

So as you can see, I have a bevy of 1B and am thinking of using this to my advantage in order to improve on my pitching (SP). So using one of the above 1B (Votto, or Prince, or Youk) what would be an ideal/viable return in a 1 on 1 trade?
- Ubaldo
- Cliff Lee
- David Price?

I wouldn't deal youk because he'll get 3b elgibility and I'm not totally sold on Reynolds. Fielder and Votto can get any of those sp's in my eyes. you'd be giving up too much. Try packaging someone else with fielder and get a better of as well. Good luck!!

Help please.

I'd rather shop CBY or Stubbs for a pitcher. You might be able to snag a Hanson/Weaver/Price type out of either one. If you're shopping either Fielder or Youkilis, you should expect no worse than Halladay/Lincecum/Felix.

Deal Fielder and Gio for an Ace and a solid bat in return ... just in case Carpenter has any injury issues at any point.

Agree totally with this. You need a stud SP to anchor your rotation!

Thanks for the help with mine!

I am not picky. Deal Votto or Fielder depending on what is coming back. I could live with either as my 1B.
I'd keep Youk as well.

I am ready to hear your input!!! Click my link.

While I agree that packaging players will probably get you a better return, I would not be opposed to trading Fielder for Cliff Lee straight up. Definitely hold onto Votto and Youkilis though. I would not trade Votto for any pitcher in the majors.

Help with mine?
