My thinking is:
- Geovany Soto is worthless.
- Zobrist is good, but I have Cuddyer and Kipnis for 2B and my OF is stacked...so Zobrist would be on my bench most of the time
- I like Upton, but he is my 4th or 5th best OF, he would probably ride my bench a lot too.
- Sabathia is my biggest loss, but I still have a lot of talent and Garza is a borderline ace
- Trout could be great, but like any other prospect, it's no guarantee.
- Wells....meh, I could drop him for Boesch, but he still hit 25 hr, and I think he improves a lot this year, hopefully hitting behind Pujols...
- my C and 3B were weak and Santana and Lawrie are arguably the best choices at C and 3B in a dynasty.
I completely agree with your line of thinking here, but based on who you are giving up, I would hold off for a better offer.
- Yes, Soto is worthless. But so are most catchers in a standard 10 team league. You don't need a top keeper with only 10 catchers on the books. You can easily redraft and/or drop guys throughout the season to fill this spot.
- Zobrist is good, and probably a top 5 2B at this point in time. Take advantage of that.
- I like Upton too. But don't forget that he is a decent breakout candidate this year. And while he may ride the pine for your squad, he is a top 30 OF, so someone could use him. Not a throw away piece in the least.
- Agreed about the Sabathia/Garza comment. But Sabathia is the best, most established player in the deal. And you lose him.
- Correct about Trout. But I'm willing to bet someone gives you more for him.
- Wells, meh..
- I agree that 3B is weak, but disagree about catcher (see above). Lawrie may end up being one of the best guys long term at 3B, but he doesn't have many more MLB at bats than Trout. Not to mention the fact that he cooled off and then got injured to end 2011. Everyone seems to be forgetting that. He is still a prospect in my book, not the next Evan Longoria.
