Votto for Texeira and Cueto. WHIR

Postby mrbohjangles » Fri May 11, 2012 11:04 am

Was just offered my Votto for his Texeira and Johnny Cueto. I'm actually considering this, but not sure if it is the right move.

Yahoo! 5x5 h2h non keeper:

C Brian McCann
1B Joey Votto
2B Jose Altuve
3B Mike Moustakas
SS Asdrubal Cabrera
OF Hunter Pence, Michael Bourn, Shin-Soo Choo
Util Omar Infante
BN Bryce Harper, Cespedes, Kyle Seager
DL Evan Longoria

SP Jarrod Parker
SP Mark Buehrle
SP Ross Detwiler
SP Kyle Lohse
SP Brandon Beachy
SP Matt Cain
SP Cliff Lee
SP Josh Johnson
SP Henderson Alvarez
RP Sean Marshall
RP Ernesto Frieri
DL Sergio Santos

If I do end up doing the trade I will most likely drop one of either Buehrle, Alvarez, or Parker.

Thanks for your help :)

i dont do it, tex looks horrible this year really looks like his power is down and isnt hitting at all and really looks like his declining. his lucky his so good with his glove otherwise he would be getting booed out of NY.

No deal for me either. I think Votto is going to be just fine and there is a reason he was drafted so high.

I am a Tex owner.. and he has been sick all this season with bronchitis. But as said he is a slow starter, but I wouldnt do the deal either.
