I've been offered Jayson Werth for my Granderson. Don't love the ants lineup or werths numbers to this point, but is it a good buy low? Or stand pat?

Dude, I would totally stand pat.

I own Werth, and he will be back in top form soon.

However, with the Yankees lineup the way it is and that short porch in right field, I like Granderson's odds a heck of a lot better. :-)

I have both, and I prefer Granderson. At year end, Granderson will have the R/RBI/HR advantage with SB a wash, and Werth's AVG advantage isn't enough to outdo that.

I've said this a bunch of times, but since Granderson retooled his swing last August, he is third only to Bautista and Tulowitzki in HRs. He has more than Pujols in that time frame (73 games played for Granderson in that time frame). He's a legit 40 HR threat now that he can hit lefties.

I'm buying high if I don't have him on my team.

WOW, good call guys. Thanks for the advice.

I think I will try to improve at 1B using Alexei and someone else as trade bait. Any ideas?

First off, I agree with above posters and would prefer Granderson to Werth... I think that now that he has gotten his big payday that Werth will be even less motivated when the Nats are completely out of the race later in the year...

As for your second question, how about trying to parlay Jed Lowrie now that he has had a little but of hype in combo with Alexie to land a first basemen? Maybe someone that has started slowly, like Dunn or Morneau?

Good Luck...

Help with mine?

Who are you looking @ on 1st?

Giving up Alexi along with LaPorta and Lowrie would get you an awesome 1B person.

I would also follow Hosmer's track into the bigs as well, unless somebody grabbed him already. :-C
