Monster league changing trade. Please help (WHIR)

Postby pitching51 » Sun Apr 29, 2012 4:52 pm

Fielder, Cargo, Werth, Ian Desmond for Votto, Mccutchen, Starlin Castro, and Rickie Weeks

I get the Votto part but the main reason I want to do it is because my current 2b, 3b, MI spots are Ian Desmond, Jemile Weeks, and Kelly Johnson so I can replace Desmond and Jemile with Starlin and Rickie Weeks and I need some more speed. Let me know what you think :)

It's the standard 5 offensive categories plus OPS

I really like what you get in that deal even though you give a ton.

Breaking it down player by player
Fielder=Votto pretty close value I prefer Votto, but not by much
Cargo>McCructhen but pretty close I value cargo by a bit more, but close enough for a trade
Werth<Castro different positions I give the nod to castro because of the position and your need
Desmond<Weeks I give the nod to weeks will give you better numbers.
I think you lose on Cargo, but I think the other wins make up the difference. Have you tried a another OF and then downgrade McCrutchen? I am down a McC he just doesn't have enough bats around him.

Fielder, Cargo, Werth, Ian Desmond for Votto, Mccutchen, Starlin Castro, and Rickie Weeks

I actually dislike it.

Cargo > Votto (Cargo has more speed, just as good OBP, and much more upside)
Fielder > McCutchen (I like McCutchen, but hes not going much help in that offense)
Desmond < Castro (No brainer, lots of hits and more steals from Castro)
Werth > Weeks (Werth is a great rebound candidate and will probably end up with 20 steals).

Kelley Johnson is a great 2B option who I like better than Weeks as well. Johnson is scoring tons of runs and getting on base at an amazing clip. The steals will come.

Really the only upgrade would be Castro IMO. Maybe try a smaller deal just to get him.

Please review mine.

The problem is we have 2B, SS, and MI positions so I start Kelly Johnson, Ian Desmond and Jemile Weeks so I'd be replacing Desmond and Jemile with Castro and Rickie Weeks which is a huge upgrade than I think Prince/Cargo vs Votto/Mccutchen is close to a wash and I can replace Werth with a combination of Kendrys Morales and Mike Trout who are both on my bench but combined (throwing Trout in on Kendrys off days) the stats might be close to Werths
