Wilson and Bonifacio for Mauer and Niese? WHIR

Postby jonboycubs » Thu Jul 28, 2011 9:18 am

I have been offered Mauer and Jonathan Niese for CJ Wilson and Bonifacio. I need help at catching since losing Posey. I obviously downgrade in pitching here but get a nice upgrade in Mauer. What yall think? 16 teams, points based, 30 man roster, so waivers is very thin. If I made the trade my 4 keepers would be Mauer, Sabathia, Posey, and Miggy.

I play Roto not points, but I would do this deal. Not a bad keeper list then either.

Well, you wouldn't be keeping Wilson or Bonifacio, and you'd be adding a potential keeper (Mauer).

So, yes, you accept that trade.

Plus, Niese isn't nearly as big a downgrade from Wilson as you're probably thinking. He's the Mets ace right now, and I think he has good value, especially in a 16-team league.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

That is what was keeping me from pulling the trigger, I was overthinking downgrading at pitching

I would pull the trigger on this deal no doubt. Like everyone else is saying Mauer's a nice keeper, and that's a pretty good price for him. Niese isn't a bad acquisition either.

Agreed, you should pull the trigger. Good hitting is always harder to come by than good pitching.

DO the deal and don't look back.

Thanks for help on mine.
