Votto for Either/Hosmer/Gio? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Fri Jun 24, 2011 11:24 am

Am in a 12-team H2H non-keeper league. Everyone keeps telling me to NOT deal Votto, but new reports declare that Oswalt might be done for the season. I would have to deal Oswalt with Votto in this trade, but if Oswalt is shut down, he is irrelevant. I figured that this trade might not be too bad for me because I could simply move Morse to 1st base and Either to the outfield.... What do you think about this potential 3 for 1 deal?

My Team:

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

SPs:
Verlander
Kershaw
Oswalt
Liriano
Hellickson
Cueto

RPs:
Marmol
Putz
Storen
Bailey

Would you be dropping anyone as a result of the trade? Are there any decent pitchers on the WW? I'm always hesitant to trade 1 stud for 2 or 3 decent players (unless you have a glaring need which it seems you don't). I love your team the way it is, even without Oswalt, so if you can replace him with a decent pitcher from waivers I would do that before shipping off Votto.

In the FA pool are:

Vogelsong
Masterson
Britton
Wolf

If I am to pick up someone from this list, I am going to have to wait until Oswalt hits the DL (which he obviously will). I guess Vogelsong would be the best choice....
