If I had prince, I would not say yes. But, who knows what kind of knee jerk reactions people will make with cespedes.


If I was in your position, though, I would try to move cespedes for a pitcher as you really need another high end guy.

I think it is pretty equal, but I am still not sure if I would make the trade. It depends on my OF. I think Cespedes witll be hot until teams figure out how to pitch to him, and then he will come back to earth. Sell high if you can

Id take Prince. Cespedes is hot right now, but like said earlier it will level off. Tex is a slow starter so who knows how long it will take for him to get going. That DET lineup is something special.. I think you have to try and get any guy you can in that lineup.

I definitely like the Prince side of this deal. Prince+WW guy >>> Ces+Meix.

its a great deal for you and it could possibly be enough to get prince if the owner isnt wise. Not an offensive offer though.
