Longoria/Giancarlo trade WHIR,LL

Postby KaPluie » Sun Mar 18, 2012 4:23 pm

I trade my Longoria and Maybin for his Giancarlo Stanton and Michael Cuddyer.

I have 3 3Bs, so this will help balance my team out, but he obviously gets the best player involved in Longoria.

I'm definitely leaning no though. Longoria has a better chance than Stanton of being a top-5, top-10 player.

I would probably do that deal. Longoria is a better player, but they really aren't that far apart. Longoria went 14th in my draft today, and Stanton went around 24th, he almost went 19th (i passed on him for Tex).

Cuddyer for Maybin evens out the deal. I think you get the edge with Cuddyer, plus having Maybin and Gardner in the same lineup, think you'd rather go with Cuddyer/Stanton

This is an even deal, if you are hesitant, don't do it, its not one of those trades thats a No brainer either way.

I'd give the slight edge in your favor, but I also think Stanton's ceiling is higher than Longorias, question is this the year he blows up????

It is a fair deal but I would prefer if you could get something more in return than Cuddyer. I would also prefer you trading Lawrie or Zimmerman because I think Longria could have his breakout this year but in the end the deal is fair just not one I would personally do.
