My B. Butler or Freeman for his B. Phillips?

Postby juliown1028 » Wed May 09, 2012 8:30 pm

Have an overload of 1st basemen, and J. Altuve is my 2nd basemen. A guy offered me 2 trades, my Butler for his Phillips or my Freeman for his Phillips.

I know Altuve won't keep up this pace, but was wondering if it'd be worth it to get Brandon Phillips with both Freeman and Butler off to hot starts. Thanks in advance, and let me know if you need any help.

It's not a bad idea, but Altuve isnt playing too bad right now. I might just keep the Freeman and Butler if you can afford to keep playing them both.

I think it would be risky. I think the dropoff in production, from this point forward, from Phillips to Altuve is not as bad as giving up Butler or Freeman and replacing them with either Davis, who has never put together even a few good months in a row, or Lowrie, who has never been healthy for a few months in a row.

I'm pretty bullish on Altuve though so I may be biased.
