WHIR, Trade Gordon for Bruce?

Postby KaPluie » Mon Aug 15, 2011 3:02 pm

I give my Alex Gordon and a 10th round pick, for his Jay Bruce and a 19th round pick. Which side do you like better? This is a keeper league (only keep 3, and give up draft pick equal to round player was selected), and Gordon is a good keeper, but I'm in first place looking to bring it home this year.

I would have rather kept Gordon. Bruce is just too streaky for me.

Agreed with Bruce and his streakiness. I think you stick with Gordon and the 10th Rd Pick...Bruce is too streaky plus you are giving up a 10 rd pick for a 19 round...Too much for something too streaky...

help me?
