Latos for Sandoval in a Dynasty

Postby curl » Wed Jul 20, 2011 4:10 pm

I'm in a 16 team, 28 keeper head to head league. Categories are standard 5x5 plus OBP, SLUG, holds, and quality starts.

I was offered the following trade:

My Mat Latos for his Pablo Sandoval

My roster:
C - Wilson Ramos
1b - Miguel Cabrera
2b - Chase Utley
3b - Danny Valencia
ss - Stephen Drew
of - Adam Jones
of - Nick Markakis
of - Chris Young
Util - Danny Espinosa
bench - Corey Hart, Kurt Suzuki, Carlos Pena, Travis Snider, Seth Smith

SP - Mat Latos, Matt Garza, Rick Porcello, Edwin Jackson, Ubaldo Jiminez, Chris Carpenter, Chad Billingsley, Jhoulys Chacin, Gio Gonzalez
RP - Frank Franciso, Jason Isringhausen, Francisco Cordero, Antonio Bastardo, Evan Meek

So obviously, 3B is somewhat of a need for me as Valencia hasn't been hitting as well as I had hoped, although he has been better this month. But is Sandoval worth giving up Latos for?

It's not bad considering the league format. Latos contributes to 5 categories, Panda to 7.

If you can win it all this year, I support the move.

If you're trying to win this year then its an alright deal. I don't think Panda keeps up his current pace, or that Latos doesn't get better from this point on. But you do need help at 3b. if you don't think you will win this year avoid this deal completely

Short-term it helps, but I don't know if I like losing out on Latos long-term. You already have some young stud pitchers (Gio, Chacin) and a couple of guys who look like they're about to reach another level (Porcello, Garza), so it's not a HUGE loss, but a loss nonetheless.

It's up to you. I think Sandoval will help you out certainly, but I'm having a difficult time justifying giving up Latos. I prefer him to Garza and Chacin even (although I think I'd prefer Gio). So see if you can make the trade with Garza or Chacin, perhaps.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
