Votto/Oswalt for Hosmer/Either/Gio? WHIR 100%.

Postby jruffus1 » Thu Jun 23, 2011 8:58 pm

I am in a 12-team H2H non-keeper league. This trade was just offered to me and would like some feedback about it. I am watching the Phillies game and they just took Oswalt out because of back discomfort (which had placed him on the DL earlier this season).

I GIVE:

Votto
Oswalt

I GET:

Hosmer
Either
Gio

Here is my roster:

C - V Martinez
1st - Votto
2nd - Pedroia
3rd - Bautista
SS - S Castro
OF - Granderson
OF - Ellsbury
OF - Werth
Util - Morse

Bench: Rizzo, Moustakas, A Soriano (still have in DL slot)

SPs:
Verlander
Kershaw
Oswalt
Hellickson
Liriano
Cueto

RPs:
Marmol
Putz
Storen
Bailey

No way I'm making that trade. Gio is good and Eithier is too, but I think you're giving up Votto for 75 cents on the dollar. You don't have a need for another OF, so why take the big downgrade at 1b? Keep Votto, and hope Oswalt is ok. Even if Oswalt is out for the year, I'd still not make this trade.

You can get more value then that out of Votto and Oswalt. Try and make a counter-offer or just tell him to up his ante.

So just because Oswalt comes out of a game you are going to trade away the best player in the deal, Votto...... Makes no sense.

There's a reason Votto was a top five pick coming into the year. Only deal him if you get a big time stud back in return.
