Help: Michael Bourn for C. Santana

Postby killersweet » Wed Aug 15, 2012 3:10 pm

Hi

H2H league, 12 teams, Keeper league, 9 Keepers next year, 6x6

was offered:
Michael Bourn for Carlos Santana

My team:
C Carlos Santana
1B Albert Pujols
2B Jose Altuve
3B David Wright
SS Derek Jeter
OF Desmond Jennings
OF Drew Stubbs
OF Jason Kubel
OF Carlos Quentin
Util Pablo Sandoval
BN Alex Avila
BN Garret Jones
DL David Ortiz

Jason Vargas
C.C. Sabathia
Cliff Lee
Jason Motte
Chris Perez
Alfredo Aceves
Chris Capuano
Ryan Dempster
Yovani Gallardo
Ryan Vogelsong
Adam Wainwright
Brandon McCarthy
Wandy Rodriguez

I need some help with the OFs. I think Avila is a decent backup catcher. Do you guys think it is worth to give up C. Santana for Bourn?
What do you guys think?

Thanks for the input.

Your team has enough speed I would say, and Carlos has snapped out of his funk. I think from here on out Santana would be helping your team much more as you already have a lot of speedy guys that will score a lot of runs, and you need the power.

This year or next year? I think Santana is heating up, but I am always wary of catchers late in the season wearing down.

For next year, I'd take Santana.

I'd want more for santana....his value is back on the upswing, and he's worth even more in a keeper.

Bourn would be an upgrade over several of your OF. The question is: who would replace Santana as your C?

I dont blame if you do, but I have more reservations about doing it than reasons to go for it. Avila no slouch.


GOOD LUCK! HELP ME OUT.
