Overpaying for Montero?

Postby rasto21585 » Sun Mar 25, 2012 5:20 pm

I am in a 20 team h2h dynasty league. I just got offered Jesus montero Henderson Alvarez and Andrew bailey for my Lester Sano and gamel. Do I consider this deal?

I would make the deal. The upside for Jesus is pretty darn high and with Clayton, Cliff, and Ubaldo in a 20 team, you should do more then get by with the pitching you would have. Also when Jesus finally does become Catcher eligible he will be a much better option for you at Catcher every day. I don't see any projections of catchers getting over 500 ABs but with Jesus DHing everyday he very well could which would add to his value even more.

PS; very nice team BTW

I love Sano, but i make that deal easy.
Lester is a bit overrated.
Montero will be a 25-30 hr C.
Alvarez is a nice SP, and Bailey is solid.

No deal for me. Bailey has too many question marks for a closer. Alavrez is good in a 20 team league but nothing great. Montero has a lot of upside but I am not sold that he is going to have a great year. I think he struggles a little and you can get him cheaper later.
