Matt Holliday for Mike Stanton in a keeper?

Postby p32bars » Sat Jun 04, 2011 6:32 pm

In the middle of a trade offer. I own Holliday. I drafted him in ROUND 2 this year. I can keep him the rest of 2011, all of 2012, 2013, and 2014. I don't have to send him back into our league draft until 2015.

I was offered Mike Stanton for him. Stanton was also drafted this year, but in ROUND 5. I could keep him the rest of 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 as well, similar to Holliday.

Given my league cats and my current team, would you do it. I'm really tempted to because Stanton is younger and I really think he is going to get better the next 3 years.

I've been struck by the injury bug as of late, I finally get Zimmerman back in a few weeks and I have been mixing and matching Eric Young Jr, Lowrie, Kelly Johnson, and Cuddyer between 2B and 3B.

Would you make this move, or no?

Value wise, I would go with Stanton being three rounds later.

Kind of a tough one. Stanton seems like the better option at face value. Will he keep progressing as a hitter is the bigger question. I love the kids power but he does strike out a lot.

Being that average counts in your league, I would have to say no the trade.

They will put up similar numbers in the end, but Holliday will have less K's, a better AVG, and it makes you less prone to cold streaks throughout the season.
