Votto Blockbuster: Deal A or B? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Sun Jul 15, 2012 10:42 pm

Which of these deals makes more sense for me? I feel like I give up less in deal A, but I really would like to have a replacement OF for Rasmus and would need to clear a roster spot for Pedroia anyway.

Deal A: My Fielder and Rasmus for his Votto and Hosmer (1B)

Deal B: My Fielder, Rasmus and Moustakas for his Votto and Dunn (1B/OF)

I like A, Votto and Hosmer are both studs and I think Rasmus will cool down.

Bump

Any other thoughts on this one?
Any Votto owners concerned about his knee or is that an issue that's blown over?

Tough call here.....

I do like Votto over Fielder, so win win there, But Rasmus doesn't look like he is slowing down at all. Hosmer has been a big dissapointment and it doesn't seem like he will bust out tell 2013 now, BUT since you only keep 6 guys doubt that Hosmer fits in your 6 keepers for next year if you do Deal-A

Maybe the pros of Votto will make Deal-A worth your while tho, I notch him above Prince in my opinion,

PLEASE HELP ME:

Definitely prefer A, as I think Hosmer is going to be better than Dunn the second half. Dunn has more value here than most leagues because batter Ks are not held against you. But I don't see throwing in Moose as making up the potential difference between Hosmer and Dunn. Maybe throw in Bonifacio since he's likely your cut when Pedroia comes back.

I agree that I prefer option A more. Dunn does't hit for doubles or triples and is a drag on the avg. If you pull the trigger, go option A. Please help me man, thanks...
