Elsbury/Stanton trade!

Postby Moff9 » Tue May 01, 2012 10:26 am

12 team H2H league - R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, AVG, OPS -- IP, W, L, SV, HR, k, ERA, WHIP
It's a keeper but we only keep 4 guys, 1 must be a pitcher.

was offered Ellsbury and Matt Harrison for Stanton and Lance Lynn

My team is
Posey, M.Cabrera, D.Pedroia, Stanton, Youk, Pena, Aybar, Victorino, J.Weeks, and Boesch
Shields, Haren, A.Sanchez, D.Holland, Marcum, Lynn, Kuroda, Hochevar, Smyly, Marshall and Casilla

Is this trade worth stashing Ellsbury until he's healthy?
12 Team H2H - 5 Player Keeper
Posey, Goldschmidt, Phillips, M.Cabrera, Simmons, A.Gonzalez, Stanton, Trumbo, Puig, H.Kendrick, Bourn, Profar

Pitchers - Shields, Zimmerman, Latos, Ryu, Burnett, Neise, Dempster, Cashner, Pinada, Papelbon, Grilli, Benoit

Stick with Stanton, you could use the extra "pop"

Ellsbury's been injured too much the past 2+ seasons now. Stanton has tremendous upside, and I think Lance Lynn does, too. In a keeper league, I'd definitely turn this one down.

While I think Ellsbury is the better player, I think Stanton is more important to your team. It's tough to turn this down though. I would probably do it and then have Cabrera, Pedroia, Ellsbury, and Haren as your keepers.
