Holliday and Cargo for Braun and Hosmer

Postby GradySizemore » Tue May 10, 2011 9:12 pm

I have been offered Matt Holliday and Carlos Gonzalez for Ryan Braun and Eric Hosmer.

On the surface this seems like a no brainer but we play in a keeper/dynasty league that allows us to keep a player at each position and Braun in my opinion is the superior option here. I'm a little hesitant to trade away Braun.

Here is my roster:
C - M Wieters
1B - A Pujols
2B - D Pedroia
3B - K Youkilis
SS - A Ramirez
OF - B Abreu
OF - G Sizemore
OF - R Braun
U - T Hafner
Bench - N Cruz
Bench - P Sandoval
Bench - E Hosmer
P - Cliff Lee
P - C Hamels
P - D Haren
P - J Weaver
P - J Chacin
P - J Masterson
P - B Duensing
P - B Arroyo
P - D Storen
P- J Hellickson
P - J Sanchez
P - M Capps

Here is his roster:
V Martinez
M Teixeira
B Belt
F Freeman
R Weeks
B Lawrie
A Rodriguez
H Ramirez
C Gonzalez
J Bruce
M Holliday
A Jones
C Beltran
M Moustakas
J Lester
J Walden
M Scherzer
S Marcum
T Hanson
Z Greinke
B Beachy
J Cueto
K Drabek
M Garza
R Nolasco

If you have Pujols, aren't you going to keep him for next year at 1b? What does that mean for Hosmer?

Braun is definitely the better option but Holliday and Cargo combined is definitely worth more than Braun and Hosmer for this season. Basically I would do the trade to improve your squad for this season, and Holliday and Cargo aren't bad OF keepers either.
