Posey/Hosmer for Lawrie? Help!

Postby Rotowahoo » Sun Mar 18, 2012 4:43 pm

Posey is in the last year of his contract in our league, and I'm not too high on his 2012. I think Hosmer is going to be awesome, but another owner is dangling Lawrie ($5). I have a standing offer from a different owner of Gio Gonzalez ($10) for Posey. I do have a good feeling about Gio in the NL. Do I make the trade for Lawrie, or settle in with a Posey for Gio trade? I also have Paul Goldschmidt ($5), but I haven't been able to justify him as a keeper. Do I get Lawrie and add P.G. to my keeper list?

Roto, 10 owners, 15-offensive, 10-pitchers, $280 max, 5-10 keepers

No way would I do the Lawrie deal. I like Hosmer more than Lawrie straight up so no sense in adding Posey. I think I would also rather have Posey than Gio mostly because it is a 2 catcher league. Both are decent values but finding a catcher at that price with that production is going to be harder than finding a starter. I would also take a flyer on Goldschmidt for $5. He is going to get the playing time and you never know what he might do. Maybe he starts off hot and you can deal him for something of need.

Do you really want three Nats on your SP staff? Ride Posey to his free agency. He will be decent as your 2nd catcher.

No way give Hosmer for Lawrie.

Posey + Hosmer is too much for Lawrie. I would do Hosmer for Lawrie straight up though.
