how is this trade?

Postby metsfan0705 » Mon Mar 19, 2012 6:30 pm

My offense is currently:
C: Joe Mauer
1b: Pujols
2b: brandon Phillips
3b: David Freese
SS: Hanley Ramirez
Of: hunter pence
Of: Carl Crawford
Of:Andre Ethier
Utl:Nick Swisher
Utl:J.J hardy
and crisp is on my bench
its only a ten team league so that's why my offense seems pretty stacked. the question is, should i trade Albert Pujols and david freese for Evan Longoria and Jay Bruce? longoria would replace freese swisher would move to first and bruce would be an of/utl. i know that pujols is going to be a tank this year on the angles and in the AL, but i feel that freese is over hyped right now and longoria is going to bounce back in a healthy season. thoughts?

by the way, the offensive stat categories for this league are Runs/Hrs/Rbi/SB/Avg/obp/slugging if that helps

Tough one. I'm assuming re-draft. The additional categories makes Albert way more valuable than usual. I would do this though. Bruce over Ethier looks like a nice sized upgrade. If Swisher tanks you could probably find a decent 1B option on the wire or on someone else's bench.

I think I would rather have Pujols. It is really close but Bruce will hurt you in Avg and OBP and Longoria won't offset any of that.
