Marshall for Stanton, what's my next move? - WHIR

Postby oxhammer » Sat Apr 28, 2012 9:05 pm

This trade just got accepted. How'd I do? I knew the owner wanted Stanton and figured I'd try to buy low. I really didn't think he'd take it but merry Christmas to me (in my opinion). It leaves me short for saves short term but Farnsworth will be back eventually.

Based on projected stats, I need Mauer's average over McCann's power. Making McCann the obvious choice for trade bait. I know an owner who is interested in McCann, Bourne, Franceour, and Morales. He has Johnson, Motte, League, Gallardo, Ramirez, Beachy, Weeks, and Crawford listed as available with the rest as "untouchable". I really wanted and still want Cespedes but unless I trade someone else off to make room, he'd be riding on my bench. I can give up SB fairly easy so trading Bourne is definitely an option. Maybe Bourne/McCann for Cespedes/Gallardo or Beachy?

The only closer I'd even consider in exchange for Stanton would be Kimbrel -- and even then I'd probably hold Giancarlo -- so yeah, you made out like a bandit here.
