Better Keeper Value Walker or Casilla?

Postby Mateo de Lorenzo » Sun Jul 17, 2011 10:36 pm

So, I was offered a trade of my Cain (cost a second round pick to keep) and Neil Walker (6th round loss) for Gio Gonzalez (6th) and Alexi Casilla (20th).

Is Alexi Casilla a good value to trade Walker?

Standard 5x5 roto league. im rebuilding.

Casilla doesn't have much value period so Walker is infinitely better. That said, the deal isn't too far off base because flipping Cain (2nd Rd) for Gio (6th) is quite good. Can you get any other than Casilla?

Yeah, thats what I thought about Casilla but wanted to make sure I didn't miss something. I like the Cain for Gio part. Not much on his team that he is willing to part with.

The only other possible player he might be willing to give up is minor leaguer Billy Hamilton in the Reds organization. I have a minor league slot open so I could add him there and its pretty much a free keeper this year.

Have to agree with everything said here. Love getting Gio but I don't like you giving up Walker for Cassilla. Not a fan of Billy Hamilton either even though he is a free keeper. I just don't see him having all that much value as a ML player. I would probably be willing to do the deal for Gio anyway but would prefer to get something better in return for Walker or give something else up.
