WHIR Get: Nelson Cruz OR Alex Gordon, Send: Ryan Howard

Postby the ROC » Sun Jul 01, 2012 6:36 pm

What do you think of getting Cruz or Gordon for Howard? I have Ellsbury on the DL, and he'll take Kirk's spot, but I can also play Craig and Morneau and Carlos Santana at 1B/3B.

So that leaves the decision of Cruz or Gordon. Upside of Gordon going forward (I'm in a dynasty league), or production now out of Cruz?


10 team, 5x5 H2H, can use 25 players per week, 25 keepers, dynasty league.

C B. McCann, Atl C
1B A. Pujols, LAA 1B
2B D. Uggla, Atl 2B
3B A. Ramirez, ChC 3B
SS S. Castro, ChC SS
2B/SS D. Espinosa, Was 2B
1B/3B J. Morneau, Min 1B
OF D. Jennings, TB OF
OF A. Craig, StL, OF
OF J. Heyward, Atl OF
OF A. McCutchen, Pit OF
OF K. Nieuwenhuis, NYM OF
UTIL C. Santana, Cle C
B J. Peralta, Det SS
B C. Young, AZ OF
B A. Rendon, Was 3B
B M. Machado, Bal SS
B A. Gose, Tor OF
B P. Alvarez, Pit 3B
B D. Norris, Oak C
DL J. Ellsbury Bos OF
DL R. Howard, Phi 1B
DL L. Cain, KC OF


Pitchers irrelevant so I'm not gonna type them out.

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

Why not keep Howard? I would think strictly for next year he has more potential than either of them. This would be selling low on him and hoping that Cruz can stay healthy or that Gordon finally lives up to his potential 7 years later (I know he was good last year but only 5 HR so far...)

Cruz is a good deal for Howard who has some pop and speed potential the rest of the way (15 homers 10-15 SB) not too shabby.
Pass on Alex Gordon.
