B. Butler + N. Cruz for Mi. Cabrera? WHIR

Postby juliown1028 » Mon Jun 04, 2012 11:57 pm

Someone offered me my Butler and Cruz for his Miguel Cabrera. Looking at my team, which side would you take?

I'd love to slot Cabrera at 3B for my team, and bench Zimmerman, move A. Gonzalez into the OF, and place Hosmer at 1B with him heating up.

Guys on the WW that I'm eyeing to pick up to play at that extra Util spot:
P. Goldschmidt
A. Craig (he was just dropped right after coming back from his DL stint, will have to waiver claim him)

Afraid they'll be snapped up soon, but do you guys think this make sense for my team?

Leave a link if you need help.

12 Team 5x5 H2H Standard
C: J. Montero
1B: A. Gonzalez
2B: J. Altuve
3B: R. Zimmerman
SS: D. Jeter
OF: R. Braun
OF: J. Upton
OF: N. Cruz
Util: A. Rios
Util: B. Butler
BN: E. Hosmer

You better accept that trade before he pulls it back. Seriously that is one sided for you. MCab will produce like Butler and Cruz on their own. Bench Zimm and wait for him to heat up.

Take the deal. I am a big believer in Butler but almost any time you can get a top 5 player, you probably should do the deal.
