Nova for Aybar and Revere?

Postby tmacdaman1 » Sat Feb 11, 2012 3:02 pm

My league is a 5x5 roto league

I want to sell high on Nova, as a Yankees fan who has followed him for years throughout his minor league career, I think he is getting over hyped simply because he had the best run support in the majors.

I have him for $6 in my league next year ($325 draft day budget) so he has a lot of value at that cheap price. Quite frankly, I think he is replaceable. I might be able to get Ben Revere and Erick Aybar in return.

I think a chance to get 60-70 steals in return for Nova is too good to pass up, and I love that Aybar should be hitting in front of Pujols. Same reason I went and traded for Austin Jackson last week.

Is this a good trade for me?

Looks good to me, I prefer each of them alone to Nova by quite a bit. Getting both would be great imo.

I wouldn't prefer Revere myself, unless the league is something like a 16-20 teams deep. Still, Aybar is probably a better grab than Nova, and the steals (which I expect to be more 40-50 than 60-70) are an added bonus for your bench, to be used as needed.

I agree that you should do it, but not with the above poster's full analysis.

If Aybar and Revere are both at decent keeper prices, then I'd do the deal in a heartbeat.

I should have given their price tags. Revere will be $5 and Aybar will be $9, so they are totally reasonable prices.

It is also a 13 team league with a potential 14th being added...so it is pretty deep.

Love it. Don't trust Nova this year and hate the lack of K's. I like Aybar to be a valuable guy at SS this season.

Aybar will hit you 30-35 doubles, 15 homers, hit around 300, steal 30-35 bases. (Think Furcal in his prime) whats not to like? He's probably the safest most well rounded SS outside of spending an early pick on Reyes or Tulo.

Those are high expectations for Aybar. Last years 10 HR was a career high and he has had one season where he .300 and one season of 30 SB. While I think Pujols should be good for him, I wouldn't expect him to improve upon a career season.

I think I might take Nova here. Yes he is over-rated but he will still put up respectable numbers. I can't exactly say that about the other guys.

I like the deal for you. YOu will at least get 60 steals between the two and that is enough for me to pull the trigger.
