Trade Bruce for Stanton and Lind? WHIR

Postby BravesGuy » Sat Jun 04, 2011 12:03 am

This trade was just proposed to me.

Give: Jay Bruce (Rnd 12)
Get Adam Lind (Rnd 9) and Mike Stanton (Rnd 22)

Thoughts? Should I accept? Seems like a pretty good trade and would give me a great keeper for next year.
Stanton in round 22 is nice.

Adam Lind is a great upgrade for your Util spot. I think Bruce is a little better then Stanton but they're very close. As long as Lind doesn't revert to his horrible 2010 numbers it would be a great "go for it" kind of trade for you. He did cut down on his SOs a lot before he went on the DL.

Lind was raking before getting hurt. I see Stanton and Bruce putting up similar numbers the rest of the way, and being able to keep Stanton next year in round 22 is very nice. I'd take the deal.

I think i agree with the previous post and would do this deal in a keeper league.

Thanks for help with mine.

I would take this trade, Stanton and Lind are both on my team and have made me proud this year. Stanton in round 22 makes this trade 10x better. Take it now

i'd take it too, no doubt, but who's your drop?
a two-for trade and you're going to have to drop someone? furcal is your weakest batsman, but that would leave you with just Jeter (and i'm not a jeter hater by any stretch...too much hatin this year imo. and i was glad when he started it up early-mid may)...you ready for anything that might happen in the course of the season?
your pitching looks solid...
Just another thing to think of

me too? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=432514

I like the trade, and with the keeper situation, I think it makes a lot of sense. I agree with lupus though. Who would you drop? Ideally you could make it a three for three trade, but that would be overworking it.

That said, I like the trade a lot and think you should take it, just as long as you can plan a course of action about having one too many players.

I have a thread in the rate my team forum if you'd like to take a look.

Cheers!

Well, I actually just picked up Furcal from free agency, he was sitting there for about a month. Plus he just hit the DL again so I was going to drop him anyways.

Thanks for the reply.
