Stanton for Butler? WHIR

Postby tonyobonyo » Thu Apr 21, 2011 3:20 pm

I'm in a 14 team, H2H, 5x5, non-keeper league. Someone offered me Mike Stanton for Billy Butler. I feel like I could use some extra pop in my lineup (assuming Stanton ever hits a homer). But then Butler and Stanton are kinda on opposite ends of the batting average spectrum, so maybe he wouldn't be worth the significant hit I might take to my team's BA. What do you guys think? Here is my lineup:

C J.P. Arencibia
1B Adrian Gonzalez
2B Jed Lowrie
3B Pablo Sandoval
SS Derek Jeter
OF Nelson Cruz
OF Colby Rasmus
OF Carlos Beltran
UTIL Billy Butler
Bench Juan Pierre

If it's a keeper league I'd do it. If you're just assembling this team for this year, I'd wait. Butler has been playing really well.

Help mine?

Keep Butler. Stanton is good for a league with no AVG.
