Well considering Sandoval will never see your lineup, I would do it. You have Howard and Pujols in front of him at 1B, and you have Ramirez and Zimmerman ahead of him at 3B.

Maybe if you aren't sold on Carpenter you can try and package Sandoval and some other position player to try and upgrade there.

My feeling is anytime you have this much depth and can trade excess to upgrade a weak position, you do it. I would almost def make this deal. Or like the other poster pointed out, you can always make a different deal. Or you could trade for Carp and then flip him for someone else you prefer....

Help with mine would be appreciated. viewtopic.php?t=435025

i would try to upgrade at 1b, 2b or ss if i was you. you might want to sell high on aram too especially if this is a keeper league. panda might be better even this season than your other two 3bmen, even though he was hurt before.

I may very well be in the minority, but I like Panda over your two other 3Bs the rest of the way. I'd try to move one of them -- A-Ram, preferably.

I think you should do this. Carpenter hasn't been having a good season, of course he should turn it around, but I would go for a more proven SP if I was you.

I wouldn't trade a player coming into his prime for an older, aging arm. Its not a TERRIBLE deal, but pitching is so much easier to find than a quality 3rd bagger. Pass!
