Trade Ethier for Hart? (WHIR)

Postby jedspringf » Mon May 21, 2012 6:39 pm

It sounds like Hart is going to be shifted to 1B, so if I get him, I can use him to take the place of Chris Johnson in my starting lineup. Ethier is looking like a solid keeper, though, so I'm not sure I should let him go.

If I don't make the deal, my alternatives are:
A) stay with Johnson
B) drop Johnson for either Infante, Desmond, Lucroy, Pierzynski, Arencibia, Alexei Ramirez or Alcides Escobar

Thanks in advance for any advice you've got.

I like Ethier much better than Hart so I wouldn't make that trade. Hart's move to 1B is not even guaranteed. I'm in favor of upgrading over Johnson, though. None of those guys mentioned are CI's though, so I'm not sure how they would take over for Johnson in your lineup and they probably won't be the upgrades you are looking for numbers wise.

A little help? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=447446

I can fill Johnson's slot with a CI, MI or C (long story about my weird league rules). Any thoughts about who would be the best option to replace Johnson. I'm thinking about gambling on Alexei--I have him projected as the best of those options by a wide margin, but he's off to a really slow start.

I like to ride the hot hand so I probably would pick up Arrencibia or Desmond to fill that spot. I also would keep Ethier.

please help
