Should I trade away Stanton in a Dynasty League

Postby diesek » Tue Apr 12, 2011 12:17 pm

I have to admit it was not love at first sight but as time has passed, I have grown to love Stanton. I really do think that he has enormous potential and will avoid turning into a Mark Reynolds (YUCK!).

Anyways, I've been offered a trade that might not give me the best player in the trade but it does give a solid prospect in return and 2 pitchers that could possibly help me achieve first place in standings this year. I came 2nd in standings last year to a team that is just monstrous, I'm in a 14 Team Dynasty league with standard 5x5 categories. So far this year, my team isn't doing so badly in the batting (although SBs are a weakness) but my pitching is terrible.

The trade goes like this:

I trade:
Mike Stanton

I get:
Jordan Zimmerman
Roy Oswalt
Domonic Brown

Provided below is the roster of my team:

(Arizona Diamondbacks)

C: Alex Avila
1B: Joey Votto, Adrián González, Billy Butler
2B: Rickie Weeks, Chone Figgins
3B: Ryan Zimmerman, Alex Gordon,
SS: Stephen Drew, Alicedes, Escobar
OF: Justin Upton, Chris Young, Delmon Young, Mike Stanton, Michael Brantley

SP: Homer Bailey (DL), Cole Hamels, Chad Billingsley, Clay Buchholz, David Price, Brandon Webb (DL)
RP: Francisco Rodríguez, Carlos Mármol, Drew Storen, Joel Hanrahan

(I also have Desmond Jennings in the Minors)

What do you think? Is it worth it to trade Mike Stanton?

Please do let me know.

Many thanks for helping out.

Ehhh, I don't like that trade. Stanton is MASSIVE potential and I do not believe he will become a Mark Reynolds. Plus it seems like you have a connection/partiality towards Stanton, therefore I feel like you will regret making that trade as soon as you make it. Personally, I would not make the trade.

P.S. - Please take a look at my thread and let me know your opinion on these two trades that were made in my league.

I actually went through the trade as I felt it would help me do better this season.

I then went on to trade Oswalt, Webb, and Lars Anderson (from minors) for Carlos Santana.

So the team looks like this now:

C: Carlos Santana
1B: Joey Votto, Adrián González, Billy Butler
2B: Rickie Weeks, Chone Figgins
3B: Ryan Zimmerman(DL), Alex Gordon,
SS: Stephen Drew, Alicedes, Escobar
OF: Justin Upton, Chris Young, Delmon Young, Michael Brantley

SP: Homer Bailey (DL), Cole Hamels, Chad Billingsley, Clay Buchholz, David Price, Jordan Zimmerman
RP: Francisco Rodríguez, Carlos Mármol, Drew Storen, Joel Hanrahan

(MINOR LEAGUE: Desmond Jennings, Domonic Brown)

Would anybody else just let me know how I did in their opinion? Would you do the same trade in a similar situation? What sort of a player do you expect Domonic brown to be (especially in terms of his batting)?

Any comment would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
