Huge Mega Trade - Should I Do It?

Postby Micaelis » Wed Mar 28, 2012 4:43 pm

I've just been proposed this trade:

I get:
- Giancarlo Stanton
- Colby Rasmus
- Felix Hernandez
- Carlos Marmol
- 2nd round draft pick

I give up:
- Eric Hosmer
- Mike Trout
- Matt Moore
- Julio Teheran
- 1st round draft pick

This is a dynasty league, 18 players kept, so 1st round pick is sorta like 19th round pick, 2nd round pick is like 20th round pick. What do you think? Thanks for advice.

Can't really say without looking at your full team. Do you think you have a shot to win it this year? That trade would certainly help you. It looks like the guy offering the trade is looking to build a team for the future.

Right now my team is very prospect heavy, it would be hard to compete. This trade would certainly help.

I would do the deal.
Stanton would help your OF tremendously, a long with being still pretty young.
You are getting King Felix one of the best SPs, and you are getting a closer.

I think the reward far out weighs the risk.

Yeah, if u want to be pushing for the gold this year then I like this deal due to Stanton and Felix. I like 3 of the 4 guys you are giving up but who knows when they bare fruit for you.

If you make this trade you will lose your 1B for this year but fill your OF with talent. I also like the elite pitching you receive and also the fact that you will now get some saves. With your bench and this trade I think you'll still have enough prospect talent to make a push for the next few years while also having a good shot this year. This trade could put you into contention and you will be able to make a decision again later this year whether to go for it now and maybe make another trade using your bench. Hope this helps some.
