Bautista Trade Value (WHIR)

Postby JoeFace'd » Thu Jul 21, 2011 5:57 pm

I got some helpful responses with my last threat, and being that I'm totally revamping my team, I figured I'd give it another shot. What are your thoughts on Bautistas' trade value in a dynasty league? What should I be aiming to get. My goal is to get younger and be a competitive force for a few years to come. I have an offer of Belt and Cahill but I'm wondering if I can get more than that.....any thoughts?

My team now:

C: JP Arencibia
1B: B Butler
2B: D. Uggla
3B: M. Reynolds
SS: A Cabrera
OF: N Cruz
OF: J Bautista
OF: J. Werth
UTL: A. Lind
BN: A. Rios
BN: D. Brown

SPs: Z. Greinke, R. Harden, A Ogando,E. Jackson, J. Niemann, RA Dickey, J Danks (DL), J. De La Rosa (DL), C. Buchholz (DL)
RPs: J. Venters, A Baile, D. Hernandez, M Stutes

Farm: Matt Moore, D. Pomeranz, Casey Kelly, Mike Minor, J Gyorko, B. Jackson.

You should be able to get more than that for him. Bautista is top 10 player with a ton of power at a time when power is harder to find. I would look around the league and see if you can find a team with too many 1B like Hosmer. I am not sold on Belt being a top 10 1B. Or maybe McCutchen or Justin Upton or Heyward. One of these guys along with another piece would be a good deal.

I like the idea of trying to get a young stud OF but you also could use a SP like Cahill. If you can get someone in the area of a McCutch or a Heyward with a top 30 young pitcher, that would be the deal. I definitely don't like Belt/Cahill though. Not enough value at all for the guy who is one of the top offensive players.

Belt and Cahill would be awful return.

I don't see the point in trading Bautista to get younger unless you are getting a really nice return. Bautista is going to be top 5 entering next year.

The mentions above of McCutch, Heyward, and Upton are nice (I'll add Stanton), but really that outfielder needs to be paired with another good player as well.

Agreed with the thoughts above. I'd add that if you were able to get a couple of true stud prospects (Harper, Trout) plus an ace (Kershaw, Halladay), it might be worth doing. But you should definitely be aiming high. There's no real reason for Bautista to decline in the near future.

Help me out, if you would: viewtopic.php?t=435403

Does Lind have 1b eligibility?

For Bautista you need a package of two players a top shelf 1b and starter but you have an aging team as it is...

Thanks for the thoughts everyone. Yea Lind does have 1B eligibility and I also have Gaby Sanchez. Not sure why that didn't get on there....

See if you can dump Butler and Rios on someone for a marginal upside young player. Maybe shoot for Adam Jones or Konerko.
