Trade Votto for Strasberg and Napoli WHIR

Postby selfreliable » Fri Mar 30, 2012 12:21 pm

I have taken over a team in a keeper league that keeps 23 of 27 players. Scoring cats are AB R 1B 2B 3B HR RBI SB BB K and IP L CG SV ER K HLD QS for pitching. My roster is:

C:Soto
1B: Votto
2B: Hill
3B Mark Reynolds
SS Jhonny Peralta
CI Emilio Bonifacio
MI Gordon Beckham
OF Carl Crawford
OF Jayson Werth
OF Alex Rios
OF Delmon Young
Util Carlos Pena
Util Justin Morneau
BN Pedro Alvarez
BN John Mayberry
BN Jose Altuve

SP Cliff Lee
SP Felix Hernandez
SP Shaun Marcum
RP Brian Wilson
RP Aaron Crow
P Johnny Cueto
P Gavin Floyd
P Chris Capuano
P Ervin Santana
BN Mark Buehrle
BN Matt Capps

Now I know my roster is fairly weak but Im not sure if I want to give up Votto for those two. I go back and forth on it so I figured I would ask you guys what you thought.

I LOVE Strasburg, but you just can't do this trade, no way at all. Votto is a sure thing top 20 player for years to come. Napoli to me is a one hit wonder and will slide down quickly, don't do this trade, you will regret it when Votto wins an MVP.

I don't agree that Napoli is a one hit wonder...and in fact think he will have little if any regression.

That being said...I still don't do this.

Not a chance. I am on the Napoli is going to regress bandwagon for sometime. I need to see more than one spectacular second half for me to start expecting that to be the norm. I would be more willing to buy it if he had shown any of this earlier in the year or the second half hadn't been so crazy good. It just seemed way too over the top.
