Do I do this? I give: David Wright I get: Madison Bumgarner
I could slot Zimmerman at 3B, and if he's still out there Monday morning when I get my 3 player adds for the week, I'll probably pick up Machado. He'll have 3B/SS eligibility, so he can backup both Castro and Zimm if something goes amiss.
I have the depth to do it, but is this enough value for David Wright?

I honestly think you deserve more for Wright. He is in the top 3 for TB in the NL, so he's an elite hitter. But if SP are really that more valuable in the points leagues then this trade would make sense.
I agree. I have Bumgarner also and if I was offered Wright straight up, I would think I just got the best deal ever. I think a top-10 hitter can net more than just a top-10 pitcher as hitters play every day and pitchers are once, sometimes twice a week.
I would build off that and see what else I could get from him. Your starting pitching is set, but maybe he has a closer he could package with Bum to make it even? Maybe a 3b that you could plug in since he's getting Wright to replace him?
