Should I trade Jay Bruce?!!?

Postby TheGhost » Mon Jun 11, 2012 11:27 pm

So I play in a 12 team, redraft, ROTO league. I'm currently mired in 10th place and am looking to shake things up.
Here's the trade:

His: Jason Heyward and Madison Bumgarner

Should I accept this trade? If not, any ideas on a counteroffer?

2B: Robinson Cano
3B: Pablo Sandoval
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera
OF: Jay Bruce
OF: Michael Bourn
OF: Allan Craig (1B, 2B)
Utl: Martin Prado (3B)
Bench: Yeonis Cespedes, Kyle Seager (SS, 2B), Kendrys Morales

SP: Cliff Lee, Justin Verlander, Colby Lewis, Jamie Garcia, Trevor Bauer, Max Scherzer, Scott Diamond, Danny Hultzen

I think given your situation you need to gamble and make the deal. Heyward is a decent outfielder when healthy and he has lots of upside. Mad Bum's stats support a good rest of the season. Scherzer just gives up too many Hrs. I do like Jay Bruce though.

I like the deal. Bruce is always streaky so I have no problem dealing him. Getting Bumgarner really helps out your rotation and between Heyward and Cespedes you should be ok at that last OF spot.
