Trade Yunel Escobar for Ubaldo?

Postby angelsfan555 » Sun Jul 24, 2011 1:41 am

Some caveats: This isn't a keeper league. This is a hitting friendly league. It has 11 hitting categories to the 6 that Ubaldo would be eligible for. However, Escobar is one of my two util players because of jose reyes being my starter. My other choices if I were to trade escobar at Util would be any of the following:

Todd Helton, Freddie Freeman, Andre Ethier, Colby Rasmus, or Mark Trumbo.

My other starting pitching looks like this:

Yovani Gallardo, Dan Haren, Carpenter, Hudson, Earvin Santana, Wandy Rodriguez, Jamie Garcia, Johnny Cueto.

I know that in a league with even emphasis on hitting and pitching this would be a no brainer to give up escobar. However, I'm not sure if I need the extra help pitching or if any of those Util replacements would be solid subs for escobar.

I'm making a late push at the playoffs and am hoping to get some advice

Thanks!

Easy accept here. You've got several good options to start in place of Yunel.
