Too much for Buster Posey?? WHIR guaranteed

Postby jasonpm311 » Tue Jul 17, 2012 11:13 pm

I give: Miguel Montero and James McDonald

I get: Buster Posey and Michael Fiers

Is the upgrade from Montero to Posey worth the (potential) downgrade from McDonald to Fiers? McDonald's looked somewhat shaky lately, and I'd love to get Posey on my squad. Thoughts? WHIR guaranteed

No, it's not too bad at all. I think McDonald will be fine and the stat jump from Montero to Posey might be marginal by year's end, but I like Fiers a lot. Plus, you really want Posey. Why haggle over the details? Go get him for that offer if you can.

No I think it is an ok deal. McDonald is no sure thing though he is a better bet than Fiers is but probably not enough to really worry about.

Very fair deal, and since you really want him I'd say go for it.

I probably wouldn't, but it's probably just because I am partial to McDonald.

I'm not completely sold on McDonald long term, so I'd make that deal. I'm not sure how great the margin will be from Montero to Posey, but Buster is going to put up solid, consistent numbers. Plus in most leagues he has C and 1B eligibility, which just gives you some nice flexibility not knowing what your situation is at 1B (or at SP for that matter), but I think I'd pull the trigger based on what info you've given us.
