Trade Help: Markakis or Beltran?

Postby pmstick » Wed Jun 08, 2011 12:22 pm

Obviously Markakis is the favorite here but here's the situation:

I can get Beltran for my Aaron Hill, which would make Markakis available. I would put Beltran into my flex spot instead of Markakis and trade him for a pitcher upgrade, which is by far the most important position in the league that I play in which rewards CG, SO, etc.

I'd jump all over that Hill for Beltran move. ;-D

I think this trade works for you. Barney has been a decent 2B, and you upgrade in the outfield. As for trading Markakis for a pitching upgrade, good luck. Markakis is borderline ownable, let alone tradeable, at this point.
