Billy Butler for Carl Crawford??

Postby berrymyers » Sun May 15, 2011 7:47 pm

Guy is giving up on Crawford and needs a 1B. Is this worth it for me??

I have Morneau who is killing me and Belt who is in AAA, so having Butler has been nice although he isn't doing that great. I've been trying to shop Butler all year since it looks like he will never hit for power. It's a 20 team dynasty league...

Without a doubt you do it. Crawford is a top 20 player.
I haven't met many people who doubt Morn will come back.

Personally I think Butler and Morn will have similar numbers from here 'til the end of the season.

I would definitely do this trade but I would look to the waiver wire for a 1B. I think Morneau is done IMO. Even if he starts getting back, he will end up hurt again. But it is definitely a trade you can't pass up.
