tough call. you need picthing, but your not getting a big bat in return. im guess votto was your 1st or 2nd pick. i really dont thimk pence even comes close to replacing votto, even if you do get garza in return. i personally wouldnt do it. but if you can get anything for max i guess it wouldnt hurt.
Votto and Pence are very close to the same player in terms of fantasy IMO. Votto just hits a few more home runs. Votto does have the potential to turn a season like he did in 2010 though, but I'm not banking on 37 HR's or 16 SB's at this point.
I really could go either way on this, but I'm leaning towards accept. My main concern is that you're not getting a player that will truly replace Votto's production. IMO Pence is not similiar in production to Votto. However, he is a quality OF, plus you're getting a solid SP and 2B. I think you're getting enough value from the players you're getting, plus the fact that you get to dump Scherzer

Not sure how much this will help as other big players were involved, but Votto and Pence swapped places in a deal in our keeper league 2 days ago. The full trade was a 2-4 deal: Votto (signed thru 2015) and Bautista (2014) -FOR- Halladay (2013) Teixeira (2013) Pence (2014) and Andrus (free to sign at any length). caveat: I'd be more reticent to trade studs like Votto in a more conservative keeper league. Our league's makeup and keeper scheme ensure plenty of trading and it was already the 4th time Bautista swapped teams, 3rd time for both Doc and Pence, and 2nd deal involving Votto this year (and it's been by far the slowest trading year we've had in a longtime). Please consider this when trying to gauge Votto's worth in your scheme. Personally I don't see you getting enough in either deal but of the two prefer the trade with Garza.
