Morse for Trumbo Trade?

Postby shoelace16 » Tue Jun 26, 2012 1:42 pm

I am in a 10 team ESPN standard roto league. I was offered this following trade by the guy who is in 8-9th place, I am in 3rd place. I get Mark Trumbo, and he gets Michael Morse. Is this a good trade for me? Does he know something here that I don't? Here is my team as it stands right now:

C- Mike Napoli
1B: Michael Morse
2B: Jason Kipnis
3B: Mike Moustakas
SS: Starlin Castro
2B/SS: Jimmy Rollins
3B/1B: Will Middlebrooks
OF: Ryan Braun
OF: Carlos Gonzalez
OF: Austin Jackson
OF: Justin Upton
OF: Alejandro De Aza
UTL: Ben Zobrsit
Bench: Aaron Hill
Bench: Eric Hosmer
Bench: Michael Young.

Just FYI: for offensive stats, I am 1st in runs (11 run lead), 3rd in HRs (both teams have 16 HR lead on me), 3rd in RBI (20 RBI cushion on both sides, but almost 100 behind leader), 1st in SB (19 SB lead), and 3rd in AVG (both teams at .290, im at .271, guy behind me is .268...
So that kind of gives you an idea of what my needs are. Does Trumbo fit the bill???
***ALSO*** Should I try to shop him if I go ahead and trade for him???????
Thanks!!!!

ALSO::: Rizzo is available right now. Should I drop someone to get him (pitching is not an option, Those are all the offensive players I can have.

My guess is that he's selling high on Trumbo and buying low on Morse, that's about all that's going on here. I think that Trumbo is probably going to regress a bit, as I don't think he's going to sustain his high BA for an entire year. Morse, meanwhile, can only pick it up right now.

I would drop Hill and pick up Rizzo if I were you.

Your offense looks strong. Trumbo for Morse is fair. I view both guys fairly equally. Trumbo probably carries more trade value right now. Maybe acquire him and spin for him a starter? I would drop Hill for Rizzo.
