NEED HELP! What should I do? WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Mon Jul 25, 2011 2:38 am

Okay I am kinda stuck in a predicament here. I have Danks on my DL still, and Beltre hit the 15 day DL as well. So before I can make a move to get a 3B off the FA I have to drop someone on my team. Who do you think I should drop or attempt to trade? I've been trying to trade Bud Norris and do a 2 for 1 trade with some of my OF'ers and havent had any luck at all. Now I'm thinking I should just drop Pena and grab a backup 3B, do you think my offense can handle his power loss? I dont really think anyone will pick him up so I could possibly add him again after Beltre gets healthy if I really want to. I've tried to trade Pena many times before and no one wants him.

So I can either drop Pena or Snider, attempt to trade Snider for a 17th round pick, or attempt to trade Bud Norris for a 15th round draft pick. What do you think is the best move?

I'd value Pena considerably more than Snider...drop Snider.

I agree with everyone else, Snider is defiantly the guy to drop if you can't make a deal.

Help with mine again if you get the chance:

My only problem with dropping Snider is that he could be kept next year as a 15th round pick, and I know if I drop him someone else will most likely grab him off waivers. Do y'all think this changes anything?



The best 3B options available imo are:
Headley
Encarnacion
Nunez
Alberto Callaspo
Maicer Izturis
Justin Turner

I'm going to disagree with a lot of others:
if you can't swing a trade, drop Pena. I'd pick up Encarnacion (or Nunez) in return.

You seem to think no one will pick him up, and you know your league better than we do. Your lineup might be hurting for power, BUT it would be even worse to be missing stats from a 3B.

Thanks for the help with mine.

I'm going to surprise myself and go with the consensus here. In situations such as this, I always tend to give the edge to potential and given the fact that Snider could be keepable, I assumed I'd stop there and say drop Pena. However, looking more at your league structure, I don't see Snider becoming much better than a 15th round pick. He's had a resurgence lately, but a lot of that appears to be luck aided; his July numbers are propped up by a .388 babip and high for him fly ball %. Also concerning is that when he was in the minors, he did not hit like he had in the past and showed a surprising lack of pop. Even if Snider goes crazy and hits a perfect world .300 with 10 homers, his overall line is still going to be ugly and won't go in most drafts until the 10th to 13th round or so. Even in the perfect world scenario, he's unlikely to be a keeper.

Pena is a pain to own with that BA, but he is very productive and can give an excellent power boost when needed. He's certainly a great guy to have on the bench even if he doesn't have much upside.

Thanks for the help with mine.
