Votto for Howard?

Postby stevereigh » Tue Jul 17, 2012 11:00 am

I currently have Votto and even after he was placed on the DL I was offered Ryan Howard for Votto. The guy requesting the trade is a die-hard Reds fan so I have a feeling he's being blinded by his love for his team. Am I right, or is Votto the better guy at 1st once he gets back?

Here's my team:

C A.J. Pierzynski, CWS C
1B Allen Craig, StL OF, 1B
2B Dustin Ackley, Sea 2B
3B Aramis Ramirez, Mil 3B
SS Derek Jeter, NYY SS, DH
2B/SS Howard Kendrick, LAA 2B, OF
1B/3B Joey Votto, Cin 1B DTD
OF Hunter Pence, Phi OF
OF Ben Zobrist, TB 2B, OF
OF Shin-Soo Choo, Cle OF
OF Alex Rios, CWS OF
OF Jason Kubel, Ari OF, DH DTD
UTIL Paul Goldschmidt, Ari 1B
Bench Mark Teixeira, NYY 1B
Bench David Wright, NYM 3B
DL Matt Kemp, LAD OF

First of all I am assuming this is a one year league because in a keeper there is no way this even makes it to the forums. Even in a one year league this is a terrible deal. Votto is one of the best 1B in the league and will be back in a few weeks. Howard is coming off a major injury that is notorious for killing people's careers and has shown basically nothing thus far. Reject this crap immediately.

Yeah this is an awful deal even with Votto hurt. You'd have to upgrade another position significantly to make a deal with Votto. He's probably top 20 overall, where Howard isn't close to that level right now and may never again be at that level.

I'd still stick with Votto. I have Howard on my team but still would love to have Votto with the injury and the instability of Howard's planning time moving forward.

That is a terrible trade. Votto is one of the best 1B in baseball right now and Howard will not match his numbers. Votto will be back in a few weeks and when he comes back you will be regretting you made this trade. Pass.

Help here?
