Reyes Trade

Postby airweino » Thu Jan 05, 2012 2:49 am

In a 30 team dynasty league with a rebuilding team at least 2 years from competing, would you deal prospect OF Gary Brown for SS Jose Reyes at his real life salary contract?

If you're truly 2 yrs out, then no, Brown will be 25 in 2 yrs, and should be stealing bases in the majors.

No. Unless you could flip Reyes for a better prospect...

You're framing the question as if you really want to say no. It's hard to imagine a scenario where giving up a top 30 prospect in Brown to get a top 30 player in Reyes in a fantasy league wouldn't be an automatic yes, but I guess it's possible with the right league structure.

Yup, depending on what my team already looks like and if I can handle Reyes' salary...or if I couldn't handle the salary but had a good feeling about flipping him for another piece....I'd take Reyes.

Agreed. In almost all circumstances I take the MLB talent over the "prospect". It's not like Brown is a slam dunk prospect either. At worst, you might be able to flip Reyes later in the year if you're not contending for a better prospect.

Have to agree, take Reyes. Brown has little chance of being anything close Reyes production plus this gives you an elite SS in a super deep league. Two years down the road, Reyes will still be playing SS so I wouldn't worry to much where your team will be. And like it was said before, you should almost always take the MLB talent over the minor league talent.

Take the talent if you can stand the salary hit. Reyes still under 30, has several good years ahead of him while Brown is still just a prospect.
