Should I trade for Espinosa?

Postby whitesox351456 » Thu Aug 16, 2012 2:26 pm

Hey guys I have a trade offer of Espinosa and Holland for Aaron Hill and Trevor Cahill that I'm considering of accepting but am not entirely 100% sure on it. Hill has been great but not recently and Espinosa has been on a tear lately. Considering only the stretch run from here on out should I accept the deal? Thanks alot for the advice

I think I like the Hill/Cahill part just a TAD more, but I don't know it it's actually worth doing. Espo has been a bit hotter lately, and the brutality of Holland lately (for the most part) prolly swings it for me. Hill has still been hitting OK, and I could see him hitting another burst and Espo going through one more cold stretch - he's so streaky - that I suppose I'd do it as long as you can afford to lose a handful of SBs ;-D

BTW, welcome to the Cafe! Great to see a new face around here - hope you stick around! :-D

Thanks I love fantasy sports and I am sure to stick around!! Love exchanging/receiving advice with others. This is probably one of the more tougher trades to accept. Espinosa has been on fire for the second half as he was last season and Hill has been struggling a bit so I'm kind of 50/50 on this trade. I'm trying to set myself up for a playoff run, take it as a gamble on which guys are going to provide a spark. With Holland it seems kind of odd for him to have low WHIP and high ERA..it must be bad luck. After facing the yankees looking at his schedule the only team that puts fear in my eyes is when he faces the angels twice. Otherwise, he gets the Indians, Mariners, Orioles, Rays and I think the A's. Not too bad for him. I think Cahill still faces the Cardinals tonight, Marlins , Padres, Dodgers, and Giants.

Fair trade. I guess Espinosa is slightly better than Hill if he also qualifies at SS. For the rest of the trade, do you need Saves more or Starters.

That's the difference. In a vacuum, I'd take Espinosa/Holland, but not enough to overcome team need.
