Stanton trade help..Leave a link and I WHIR

Postby mmonteath » Mon Jun 11, 2012 9:38 am

I have dominated hittings stats in my 8x8 league all season and the only stats that my team are not in the top 2 of the league are SB, W, and SV. I received this offer that would take away one of my weaknesses, thoughts?

I get: Papelbon/Axford/Fowler or Bonifacio
I give: G.Stanton

Is it worth it? Should I try to get one of his SP in the deal somehow (Wainwright, Cueto, Vogelsong, Zambrano, Sabathia, Pettitte)?

10 team 8x8 Non-Keeper

I don't like it. Closers are iffy and while Paps and Axford have been really good in the past, that doesn't mean that it will continue.

Losing Stanton will likely hurt your chances of keeping your lead in your hitting cats. I would continue doing what you are doing, which could easily lead to a league title. If an offer comes your way that you can deal a player of less value for help then you pull the trigger but I don't think I would worry too much about trying to fix your weaknesses.

I agree that Stanton is too much to give up for those options. I'd be inclined to scour the WW for steals and drop one of your bench guys for a steals specialist (there must be some steals on the wire in a ten team league). Also, if you need wins, it probably makes sense to do a little bit more streaming rather than keep guys like Pestano and Grilli. I don't know if you have innings cap or moves limits, but if not, stream more and get rid of the fringe relievers.

Help mine?
