Good Trade? Fielder for Cain/Santana

Postby strangebrew » Thu Jun 14, 2012 12:04 am

Need some trade advice. Trade Fielder for Matt Cain and one of Carlos Santana/Lahair/Young?

They offered Wilhelmsen with Cain but I had bailey and others that are out for the year or were removed closers and I don't need to trade for another that will likely get removed so I figure my best bet is to get something to help with the offense I lose with fielder. Other possibilities they would package with Cain are Michael Young, Bryan LaHair. Maybe Pedroia but not sure they will do that one. Here are some details on my league.

12 team league with 2 catchers.

If you can get Michael Young in the trade, I would do it for either Santana or Young in that second slot. I wasn't thinking Santana, but since its a two catcher league, that makes him a lot more valuable.

Not a bad deal!

Help?

Thanks. Thought about Lahair but doesnt help me much if he doesn't play everyday and if Rizzo will be making his way up to take away more time. Has been a tough decision. Every player I drop or trade blows up immediately afterwards. Bad luck or timing on my part.

In a two catcher league I think this is a great buy-low on Santana.. I'd take this deal and hope that Santana turns it around in the power department...

A guy like Santana will almost never lose trade value in a two catcher league so if he continues down this path another month you can still probably sell him to another team for 75 cents on the dollar later on and be left with Cain
