Joyce for Yovani or Anibal?? WHIR ALWAYS

Postby ATLbraves » Thu May 17, 2012 3:53 pm

I have these two deals on the table, which one should I take?


Trade A:
My Matt Joyce for Yovani Gallardo


Trade B:
My Matt Joyce for Anibal Sanchez


Immediately I was thinking I should go for Yovani, but he has been struggling somewhat lately. He should def right the ship tho, and this is prob a good time to buy low on him.

Or I can go the safe route and take Anibal.

What do you guys think?

To me if you are going to take one you do Anibal no question. K's are up, walks are down and he looks like the real deal. I don't think its guaranteed that Yovani becomes an ace as part of some regression to the mean. In addition he is an absolute killer in H2H formats because of his inconsistency. Since he became a full time starter in 2009 he has pitched in 19 months not counting this May. He has had an ERA over 5 in 5 of them. That kind of volatility can kill you come playoff time.

i dont trust anibal in the second half yet, even with yovani recent struggles i think his gonna be big fro the brewers the remainer of the year. i go with yovani but either trade would be good for joyce.

You win either way you go. For me, I like Gallardo to turn it around and would bank on him over Sanchez, but it's close. You can't go wrong either way. Thanks for the help on mine.

Good trade for you either way like the others said. I like Gallardo going forward. He should bring it back together and is a tier above Sanchez when going well in my opinion.

please help me with a counter if you see one.

I think some people are underrating Joyce. If any of these three players have "arrived" this year, it's Joyce.

With that said, the value is still absolutely there. I think I'm taking the under-performing Gallardo over the over-peforming and historic self-imploding Anibal Sanchez.

Excellent trades, the both of them. I'd take Gallardo over Anibal for the remainder of the season. Thanks for the help with mine.
