Russel Martin or Carlos Santana to Trading Block?

Postby Hargy » Wed May 25, 2011 4:25 pm

Which would you be more willing to package into a deal and why? Martin is putting up the best numbers at the catcher position so far this year but can he keep it up all year or does his production begin to decline as the year goes on. Santana isn't doing terrible numbers wise but his avg is only at .200 right now.

10 team, H2H, non-keeper

In a non-keeper league I'd rather lose Santana, but you'll get more for Martin and I think that will be the deciding factor. In all reality, Martin will probably get hurt anyways, he always does. Santana will probably provide more stability in the long run, and similar HR numbers. The average will rise, he is still developing to major league pitching

I'd package Martin. I think he is at a sell high point right now and you can get more for him than Santana. Santana has yet to get hot but will eventually and Martin will slow down unless the stop in NYC has really rejuvinated him!

please help

I would keep Santana and hope his numbers improve in the future, then sell high on Russell because his numbers stunning.

I'd easily deal Martin before Santana if possible.

I think you should deal the one that nets you the biggest return. Everything being equal, I'd keep Santana. Martin has a history of wearing down, and he's been catching a lot. Santana is the better talent, and should be better going forward.

One more vote for Martin. At the C position it's sometimes tough to find a suitor, and you're better off selling the better numbers right now if you have a suitable replacement. Santana will come around and you'll be glad you did.
