Stanton for Hosmer and Maybin?

Postby Shiti Field » Tue Apr 10, 2012 1:20 pm

I have Stanton and am considering offering this trade. Reasoning: I'm concerned about Stanton's knee and Stanton's gigantic home park. I know his power is insane but I fear new Marlins park will harness some HRs. Hosmer has been ridiculous all spring and now into the season (although small sample size). Maybin would replace John Mayberry and provide some steals.

Do you think this is good value for Stanton? Should I expect more of a return? Thanks.

League settings: 12 team h2h with 5 keepers per year.

I think it is decent value. Hard to say without the rest of your team. Who do you have at 1B currently?

I'd probably make the move as I love Hosmer long term. He won't match Stanton in HR's but could very well outdo him in every other std category.

I think Stanton's value takes a huge hit in their new park. Unless you have one of the speed guys from Miami, there is no advantage in playing at that park. In the end Hosmer MAY not hit as many HR's, but I think he helps you in all the other categories. I think if you can pull this off, you do it!

I think it is a little early to give up on Stanton and too worry about that park. Stanton has 80 power for a reason and very few parks are going to really hurt his ability to hit bombs.

Saying that I like the trade. Hosmer is going to be a stud and Maybin will be very useful.

I think it is a pretty good return for Stanton. Heck, I haven't been able to get that much for Carlos Gonzalez in my league, though the other owners in my league are a little stingy with their players.
