Which Trade is Best? - WHIR

Postby jbird669 » Thu Jul 28, 2011 9:55 am

I'm in a 12-team 5x5 Keeper Roto League with a $260 in-season cap. I am in last place and looking to reload for next year. I have Freddie Freeman manning 1B and Ryan Howard is attracting attention. I got two offers, both of which I find appealing. Which do you think is better?

Trade A: Howard ($38) for Johnny Cueto ($4) and Neil Walker ($5) (been eyeing him for a while)
Trade B: Howard ($38) and Yunel Escobar ($3) (I have Castro) for Ethier ($9), Marcum ($4) and Huff ($8) (throwaway)

I like A better. What are your thoughts? I'll help in return.

I like A too, getting Walker would be nice, B is not bad and you get Marcum, but still would go with A.

help me please
