4 player trade, please take a look...

Postby dracovonborax » Tue Apr 10, 2012 6:24 pm

Offered Ike Davis and Brandon Belt for Shane Victorino and Ryan Howard. How long are we looking at Howard being out? Do the upside of Belt and Davis make it worth while even with the slumps they have started in? I would have to go look in fa for a cf but Bourjous and Fowler are both available? thanks for any input you may have.

I'd much rather have the Victorino/Howard side.

I might do it. Victorino is the best player in the deal but I like Davis and Belt. I also would be fine with either of those CF players.

i should mention that it is a 3 yr keeper league and i would be able to keep Howard next season for $22 since i drafted him injured. I can part with him if he can't help me win now but his value for the next 3 years at $22,$27, and then $32 before i would have to send him back to the open market.

I would take it, and then go after Fowler. Can you keep Belt and Davis for next year? If so, might be a steal.

Both Belt and Davis would be cheap. i think Belt went for #3 and Davis for $10 so i could keep both at $5 increments for 3 years.

You take it then. I could see both Belt and Davis being more valuable (or at least close to value) than Ryan Howard for the next few years. They both have pop (not Howard pop, necessarily) but are less injury prone most likely.
