Votto for a bunch of guys.

Postby KaPluie » Fri Aug 26, 2011 9:27 am

Someone offered me...
Aramis Ramírez + Hunter Pence + Carlos Beltrán + Josh Beckett + Jair Jurrjens

stay put. you have a solid team there. you'd have to drop some valuable guys and keep in mind. I don't know what kind of insanity that kind of offer is but I want no part of it. If you had larger rosters and what not, perhaps...This just is craziness.

I like the move if you need more SP depth. It's a tough choice though since the Red Sox have a pretty tough schedule down the stretch. I think Hunter Pence + Aramis + Beltran makes up for the loss of Votto though. Plus you get Jurrjens and Beckett.

Whoever is offering all them guys for Votto is clearly trying to upgrade his keepers. I don't think I would do it though considering your league only keeps 3 guys. Votto is a top 5 player and if it was my team, I wouldn't let him go for anything less then another consensus 1st round player.

right now would you keep Votto Holliday and Hamels? I hate keeping an arm with 4 or less keeps unless its an extreme situation or pitching heavy league.
