Getting Enough for Bautista?

Postby rasto21585 » Mon Mar 19, 2012 11:41 pm

I am in a 20 team h2h dynasty league. I was offered fielder and lester for my bautista beckett and brothers. I like how this trade makes me younger and strengthens my sp staff. Anyway is there something I am missing here. Do I accept this before the other guy changes his mind?

I think this is an ok offer. I think I would like it better if you weren't giving up Brothers as well. Bautista is better than Fielder and Lester is better than Beckett so it seems like a very fair deal plus you get slightly younger.

By the way, very nice team for a 20 team league.

I would stand pat. Bautista is the best player in the deal and you're also giving up a potential future closer. The upgrade from Beckett to Lester isn't good enough to offset that.

I would not make that deal in preseason. Bautista is the best player and you would be giving up three valuable players to boot.

Don't do it yet. Lat the season play out a bit before doing a huge deal like this.

Why? Isn't fielder and lester younger?

Yes but not better. And Fielder is going to get diabetes first anyways.

Sounds like you really want to do the deal, so just do it if it makes you happy. FB is all about how you get your enjoyment out of it.
