Trade help: My Dunn for his Rizzo GUARANTEED WHIR

Straight up, my Dunn for his Rizzo.

Seems to be a no brainer, I asked for Hosmer, and he offered me Rizzo. We are both taking a chance here...I think I should take this, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Sure, take a chance, but the point? Rizzo may start over Morse (maybe) but still you have a backup 1b which you don't really need.

I guess so. Might as well speculate on Rizzos potential.

coming from the perspective of someone who has not had to struggle through Dunn this year, I'd say don't do it. If I was the owner of Rizzo, this would be the exact kind of deal I'd look to do with him, the ultimate buy low and have someone else buy into his potential. That said, if you are so sick of Dunn you'd pay to have him off your team and you are sure he won't find his stroke, go ahead and give up on him and salvage a high upside bat

Thanks for your help on mine

Seeing as I doubt Rizzo cracks your lineup any time soon, I'll speak in terms of production and value. Simply go with your gut on Dunn. If you believe he can't come around, and you wouldn't want to keep him, go for the trade. If you believe he can sort it out, hold him. You do have a number of recent call ups already.

I would probably do the trade for a couple reasons. I don't think Dunn figures it out soon. His elig diminishes his value quite a bit (and could be worse next year if he's only util elig? Not sure on this one since I haven't followed him much recently). This kills his valuue as a keeper. And, since you already have Morse and Moose, a third prospect gives you a but of CI insurance in terms of keepers. You'd get to pick who's more likely to keep it up.

It's a big risk, but you haven't got anything yet, so you're not losing anything. Go for it.

Thanks for the help guys, a part of me is willng to make the trade because I picked him up off the WW, and really neither Dunn nor Rizzo may see my lineup as of right now...maybe in a UTIL spot. And neither is hitting the ball good enough anyway to put in...I have some solid keepers already, and if Rizzo heats up, I may be able use him for some help in pitching later down the road.

I'd hold onto Dunn. I have Rizzo too, and am thinking about dropping him. He's hitting below .200 -- same with Dunn, so where's the upgrade? At least Dunn has put up like 7 years of good numbers.

If you're in a keeper league though, I'd do it, cause like someone else said - Dunn will only have UTIL eligibility next year and that's incredibly annoying to deal with.

Had it just been a redraft league, I probably would not take the trade...but being its a keeper I'm leaning towards taking it.
