Jay Bruce for Ben Zobrist

Postby sdyarnell » Sun Apr 22, 2012 6:00 pm

10 team h2h points league

points = TB + R + RBI + BB + SB*2 - CS

STARTERS
C -- Carlos Santana
1B-- Joey Votto
2B-- Dustin Pedroia
3B-- Chase Headley
SS-- Troy Tulowitzki
OF-- Hunter Pence
OF-- Jay Bruce
OF-- Shin-Soo Choo
U -- Kendry Morales
P -- SF Giants (mlb.com does teams and for some reason my friends like it, so we do it)

BENCH
Dustin Ackley
Jason Werth
Mat Gamel
Mark Reynolds
Nolan Reimold
P -- Boston Redsox

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am dealing Werth now, selling high.

I am currently considering trading Jay Bruce for another player's Ben Zobrist. Zobrist is quite the proven player, and Bruce has gone back and forth since hes been playing and seems to be in a spell right now, and Accuscore at CBS has Zobrist being much more valuable for the remainder of the season. Bruce may have the higher upside, but what does everyone think?

Should I trade my Bruce for Zobrist?

BONUS: While you are here, should I start someone in place of Morales? He doesnt seem to be getting the playing time. If so, who?

I'd rather have Bruce. His 30+ hr power is real, great hitters park and good lineup. Zobrist's real value comes as a fantasy 2b imo and with Pedroia that doesn't help your team. Start the hot Reimold when he gets back in the lineup from his nagging injuries.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

It's a great trade if you can swing Zobrist for Bruce. And yes, Reimold should be starting while he's on fire.
