Was this a good trade?

Postby chillbro » Sun Jul 01, 2012 1:41 am

So a guy just accepted a trade i kind of forgot about that i offered a week ago. It was my Carlos Santana and Mike Aviles for his Starlin Castro and Joe Mauer. Now it seems like i have a gaping hole at third to fill because Longoria still isnt back from his injury, but my shortstop position has upgraded a lot. Heres my (old) roster:

C-Carlos Santana -> Joe Mauer
1B-Albert Pujols
2B-Ian Kinsler
SS- Marco Scutaro -> Starlin Castro
3B-Mike Aviles -> Kevin Youkilis?
OF-Mike Trout
OF-Carlos Gonzalez
OF-Bryce Harper
U-Mike Morse
Bench:
OF-Desmond Jennings
OF-Jay Bruce
SS-Marco Scutaro
SS-Erick Aybar
3B-Evan Longoria [DL]

Do you guys think this was a good trade? and also, should i play Youk at third until Longoria gets back or pick someone off waivers (probably Lowrie, Chipper Jones, or Ryan Roberts)

Yeah. I think you made a good deal. I think a very good deal depending on your league set up. I would put Youk in at third. He might not get back to where he was in his prime, but he'll do better. Plus, he'll get lots of run and RBI opps in Chicago.

Yeah, im really liking that i filledmy hole at short with Starlin, and now it looks like Longoria might be back in a couple weeks, but im still not so sure about Youk at third.
