In the midst of a major rebuild in a large dynasty league.

I've been offered Reddick for my Snider and Anibal. At first I thought it would be overpaying, but I've heard some people say they'd pull the trigger.

What are your thoughts?

I think I would do the deal, but it is close. I think Reddick has figured it out at this point of his career and should continue to hit. Anibal moving to the AL will cost his ERA and WHIP. Snider is only 24, but has not shown signs of being able to hit major league hitting. I am sure Snider will get immediate playing time, but just too much unkown with him right now.

Help me please.

Panda > Reddick?

I just don't know I'd I'm comfortable with the cost for reddick, but is panda more valuable in your opinion?

I think Panda is more valuable than Reddick if you do not need the power (HR). I would do it for Panda if you can do it.

No way. Not in a Dynasty.

I'm from Toronto, I know Travis Snider quite well.

It's just a myth that travis Snider "can't hit major league pitching". You will see it everywhere. On every chat forum. But if you actually load up his stats on baseball reference and have a look....

In 2009 and 2010, he played "half seasons", combine these half seasons and you get roughly a full season. At the tender ages of 21/22, Travis hit roughly 23 home runs with 35 doubles and a .450 slugging percentage and about 10 steals for good measure. Pretty terrible huh? He could easily blossom into a guy that could eat Reddick's lunch for him.

The only thing I don't like about Travis is moving him away from the RC.

As for Reddick, great season but he does play in a nice pitcher's park and he is sill quite unproven.
