Bautista trade

Postby mynameislegion » Tue Jan 24, 2012 3:36 pm

16 team H2H league on ESPN. Stat categories are: HR, R, RBI, SB, OBP and W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP.

So far, the only two decent offers I have received since shopping him around have been Kevin Youkilis and Josh Beckett or David Wright and Matt Cain. Here is the rest of my team:

C - Geovany Soto
1B - Carlos Pena
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Jose Bautista
SS - Alexei Ramirez
OF - Mike Stanton
OF - Ichiro Suzuki
OF - Jeff Francoeur
UTIL - Billy Butler
UTL - Mark Trumbo

SP - Jered Weaver
SP - Jon Lester
RP - Carlos Marmol
RP - Jordan Walden
P - Brandon Morrow
P - Neftali Feliz
P - Matt Harrison
P - Carlos Zambrano

BN - Juan Pierre
BN - Gavin Floyd
BN - Johnny Damon
BN - Julio Teheran
BN - Alfonso Soriano


I like the Wright/Cain offer more. I feel like my rotation could use some work. I really like Morrow this year. After him, there's a lot of question marks. I do have some depth I might be able to work with, though. Basically, I can't figure out if the offensive downgrade I'm going to get from Wright is going to be substantial enough that even adding Cain wouldn't really be worth it. Any thoughts?

Why are you shopping Joey Bats? I would not consider either offer.

Might as well see what I can get for him. Drive up the price by saying he's available and shopping him around, then wait and see if someone becomes willing to overpay.

I would need to be severely overwhelmed. It would take Wright + a comparable player to even consider.

Neither one of those offers are good for you. You need all the offense you can get, I don't think I would be trading Bautista unless you are overwhelmed.

Yeah, I wouldn't accept either of those offers. Especially in a league that uses OBP.

Joey Bats is worth it. Too many owners think he is a fluke still, I cannot figure that out.

Neither of those offers is remotely close.

No.

Your offense needs the help more than an upgrade to your staff. If you're not getting first round talent back, I'm not really considering it. It's not like you have to trade him, so don't sell him short.

I think Bautista makes an interesting sell high. I wouldn't say he's untradable. I don't like either of those offers, but talk to the guy who has Wright. Wright+Cain is a non-starter, but maybe he's got someone around the 30-35 range that would be more attractive.
