Stanton for Asdrubal, is this nuts? WHIR

Postby dooho » Sun Aug 07, 2011 1:36 pm

12 team 5x5

i am first in hr - 10 above 2nd, 21 above 3rd but could gain 3 pts in steals and 1-2 pts in avg as well as 1 pt in r. this essentially boils down to, am i better with stanton and escobar/gordon at ss or am i better to go with asdrubal at ss and jennings at util? roster below.

edit: guys like lo-mo are FA and could be picked up after the deal.

thanks

When in first place, just as important as 'what can I gain?' is 'what can I lose?'. If you can afford to sacrifice HR and RBI (more HR), I could see making this deal. I actually think, because of position, Asdrubal is more valuable, but it completely depends on category needs.

I don't like giving up stanton, but i think you upgrade at ss enough with cabrera that you should do this trade. you're using stanton at util and can replace him with a hot streak player.. jennings is that right now. cabrera is a large upgrade over escobar and gordon. not to mention you could drop one of those two and pick up another backup position player.
