Trade Avila or Mauer?

Postby redsoxfan1211 » Mon Jun 20, 2011 7:28 pm

Hey all,

I'm looking to trade for a more productive 2B or 3B at the moment, and I picked up Alex Avila when Joe Mauer was put on the DL. Mauer came off this week, so I want to use the opportunity to cash in on one of those two.

My gut says Avila's production has to drop off a bit as the season progresses, but I'm also not sure how Mauer is going to bounce back from his injury, so I feel like this could be the best chance I have to unload one of them.

Question is- which one should I hold onto and which should I trade? As a bonus- and suggestions on a 2B or 3B of equal value I should go for?

Mauer will likely fetch you a greater return. I do think Avila is the real deal and will put up solid end of year numbers.

For Mauer, you could try Beltre, but are more likely in the Sandoval, Young, Ramirez range. This could rise if he comes back hitting.
For 2B, maybe Kinsler.

i'd hold Avila and deal Mauer. I just don't think Mauer is going to give you much long term value, while Avila is putting up great numbers plus rotating between C and DH w/ Vmart
