Trade Anibal Sanchez for Bonafacio? WHIR

Postby LARS929 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 1:29 am

I'm in a 12 team dynasty league. H2H, 6x6, walks for hitters and k/bb for pitchers as the extra cats.

I currently have no Middle infielder, free agents are locked until March 1st, but trades are allowed.

I would give Anibal Sanchez

I would get Emilio Bonafacio

FA's that will be available when they're unlocked are: Infante, Scutaro, Beckham, Barney, Izturis, Aviles.

My MLB Team:
C. Alex Avila
1B. Miguel Cabrera
2B. Howard Kendrick
3B. Pablo Sandoval
SS. Dee Gordon
MI. EMPTY
CI. Paul Goldschmidt
LF. Delmon Young
CF. Shane Victorino
RF. Michael Stanton
OF. Nick Markakis
OF. Mitch Moreland
Util. James Loney
Bench. Ryan Howard
Bench. Bryce Harper

SP:
Jon Lester
Cliff Lee
Zack Greinke
Anibal Sanchez
Ervin Santana
Phil Hughes
Chad Billingsley

Seems like a fair deal. I'm not a big Bonifacio fan but you definitely need some MI help and those guys available aren't anything special

Agreed. And you have good enough pitching to go without Sanchez and be fine. I would try to get a draft pick in addition to Bonafacio if you can. I value Sanchez a little higher. But the move makes sense for your team.

Sanchez was sneaky-good last year. I'm not a big Bonafacio fan. But I do agree that the trade makes sense as your MI draft choices look pretty dismal. Maybe explore some other MI options? See if someone would be willing to part with, I don't know, Kipnis? Play up the new stadium, improved defense, and the fact that he struck out 202(!) hitters last year.

I would do that deal. I think you'd be coming out on top myself. Bonifacio is eligible at multiple positions, hits for some power and gets stolen bases to boot. Plus as stated before you have depth at pitching. I'm looking for a SS myself in my upcoming draft and he's one of the guys I'm aiming for.

;-D I think Sanchez should have more value than that.

I get that a obviously need to make a deal for a MI, but losing value isn't a way to win. Also long term, bonafacio won't have MI eligibility because he's at CF now. I just don't see their value close enough to warrant the need based deal.

He'll probably play some 2b this year keeping his MI eligibility. You have the itching depth, I would pull the trigger on this deal rather quickly. He is a solid 275/100 runs/40 SB threat this year. He won't hit over 300 but at the same time he won't hit 240.

I'd offer up Hughes and Santana before I offer up Sanchez. Some here have lofty projections for Bonafacio, but I still think you could get more if you do decide to trade Sanchez.
