Greinke for prospects trade. Please Help.

Postby bxshock718 » Sun Apr 10, 2011 3:51 pm

I have two offers.
Option A) Greinke for Grant Green, Dellin Betances, and a first round draft pick in the 2011 minor league draft
Option B) Greinke for Jaff Decker, Jarrod Parker, and Alcides Escobar
First, which trade is better for me (I have Greinke). And are either of these a good trade for me?

By the way, it is a 16 team dynasty

My take on the trades: Option A depends on two things, what do you think Betances will truly turn out to be. I have him in my dynasty league, and I hope he lives up to his billing, but there is a very good possibility that he never lives up to it. Also, with option A, is there any guarantee of what pick the 1st round pick would be? One more thing, how many minor league keepers do you have? (this will determine just how valuable that first round pick is).

Option B: I like the prospects you are getting in this trade, and I think Escobar still has the possibility to be an All-Star SS, so if you are thin in this area, this trade would make since.

Option C: If you are thin on SP, then hold steady, but if you can sacrifice the SP, I would say have a go for it and set up for the future. My personal preference is Option B, but that is because I have plenty of young pitching and don't know your situation.

Please help me as well http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=426912

The 1st round draft pick will probably be one of the first 16 players selected in the 2011 MLB Draft. It could be Rendon or it could be someone not as good. I am currently rebuilding and trading away most of my major leaguers because I have a very bad major league team with no chance winning in the present or in the near future. As a dynasty, there are unlimited minor league and major league keepers.

Well, the I think it all comes down to what you think the upside to Escobar and Betances are. I think Option A has more potential upside, while Option B looks like a more steady play to me. I like Parker and Escobar a lot. Also, it depends on whether you want to build some pitching prospects on this trade or stack up on pitching prospects. With a fire sale, I probably go option B, but Betances could end up a Cy Young contender. Please take a look at mine please. Thanks

Anyone else? I really need help. If you even view my post please just reply quickly with what you think even if you don't consider yourself knowledgable about prospects or the minors.

For Option A, the first round draft pick would probably be Bubba Starling or Dylan Bundy because the team I would be trading Greinke to is not very good.
