Trade Longoria or Bautista?

Postby rasto21585 » Tue Mar 13, 2012 11:03 pm

I am in a 20 team h2h dynasty league. We counts holds and obp%. This is the 4th year I am in this league. I think I have a pretty solid squad but I am open to shaking things up this year. Anyway I was offered fielder and lester for my bautista capps and brothers. I love how this trade solidifies my rotation. What ya think? I could even flip lester for a bat.



Btw I also got offered Jesus montero and wright for my longoria and Sano. Is this another trade I should consider?

I would sit tight. Sano is a good bat and you are basically giving him away here. See Longo for Wright well that is just a lateral move to me but Longoria is a couple years younger and proven himself. Even in his worst year he was still a stud, a bit unlucky with this BABIP rate which will steady out.

I would probably do the Fielder and Bautista trade to make your rotation an assault. I don't see Capps having much value for long and though I like Brothers, I like Lester more. Don't do the Longoria trade.

I would deifnitely do the Bautista trade and pass on the Longoria one.

Kershaw, Lee and Lester as your top 3 starters in a 20 team league, I'll take that any day of the week. I'll deal with the small drop from Fielder to Bautista to get that. The other two pieces in the trade are ok, but nothing special.

I am sticking with Longoria all the way. The guy is a stud and although I am a big believer in the David Wright bounce back, he's already giving owners a headache with his rib cage. Broken back last year, damaged rib cage this spring training aren't things you like to hear going wrong with a ball player.

I like the Fielder deal as well. And not a chance I would do the Longoria deal especially with Wright hurting the way he is.
