Trade my Alex Gordon for what 3B?...WHIR*

Postby StealingHome » Fri Apr 27, 2012 4:48 pm

12-team H2H 5x5.points league (non-keeper)

Someone panicked and dropped Alex Gordon, and I picked him up. It already looks like he has started to turn it around. Hoping he continues to keep it up, I'd like to trade him to upgrade at 3B. I'm currently running with Chase Headley. Whom should I target? Any buy lows that I should consider (like A-Ram)?

Thanks for your help!

Could buy low on Zimmerman who should have a short DL stint.

Unfortunately my DL spot is filled, and I have injured players on my bench (like Berkman). Is it too much to ask for Michel Young? How about buy-low Lawrie or ARam? Prado?

I don't think you could get Micheal Young for Gordon, so in that sense yes it is too much to ask. The other two are possibilities, but don't really know that you'll get any added benefit out of them over Gordon. Difficult to judge really without knowing your full roster. Help with mine?

Please leave a link.

12-team H2H 5x5 point league (non-keeper). Here is the most relevant part of my roster. I picked OF 'ers with my first 3 picks. With Chase Headley as my starting 3B and Mark Reynolds on my bench, I need an upgrade at 3B. I think that I trust Corey Hart over Alex Gordon. Do people agree with that? So, what 3B should I target with Alex Gordon?

C: Miguel Montero
1B: Justin Morneau
2B: Uggla
3B: Chase Headley
SS: J.J. Hardy
OF: Justin Upton
OF: Curtis Granderson
OF: Matt Holliday
Util: Corey Hart (OF)
Util: Alex Gordon (OF)
BN: Berkman (1B) - IR
BN: Mark Reynolds (3B)
