I'm all about Dee Gordon and Jason Heyward this year... I guess if you need steals then you can do it. It's just usually you want that GUARANTEED star power when you are trading away a guy like Prince Fielder. Dee Gordon and Heyward have tons of upside though.


Austin Jackson is hot right now and a great sell high candidate, and Prince Fielder is well... Prince Fielder. I think you can get these 2 players and another quality player out of this guy if you are gonna trade Jackson and Fielder. I love the idea of selling high on Jackson too.


Go ahead and get another quality starter or bat in this deal.

If I deal Price I better be getting equal value here. This isn't close.

Another player doesn't even speak to it. It had better be a REAL good player.

Dee is mostly good for just one category and I'm not entirely sold on Heyward yet. Giving up Prince alone is too much IMO, let alone both him and Austin Jackson. Only reason you should consider this is if you're real desperate for steals, and even then do you want to give up 40 HRs/100 Rs/100 RBIs for it?

Well I also have konerko on my team and just got stanton in a trade so i figured what i lost with prince would be made up for in steals from both gordon and heyward. Jackson scares me and I would be surprised if he didn't fall back to his old ways. I have 4 1st baseman so i figured I could better my other catagories by trading. But maybe I can try to get David Ortiz out of him as well. I tend to be generous in my trades so I appreciate the help and quick responses everyone. ;-D

Also I really think Heyward is capable of matching Princes numbers, maybe not home runs but he'll get steals and Prince doesnt do that.

wouldn't do it. steals come much cheaper. Gardy, stubbs are both great buy low guys that give you steals. Gardy drives me crazy though. Bonficalio could also be cheeper that gordon. I would move one of your other 1b more than prince.

I agree even Jordan Schafer is cheap move another 1b and Hayward will never get prince like numbers
