Beltre Trade

Postby Mike2006 » Thu Aug 30, 2012 10:31 pm

I would receive Beltre and either James McDonald or Josh Johnson for Joey Votto and either RA Dickey or Cole Hamels.

This is not a league were you can pick up players throughout the year. This is also a roto league. I need Runs, HR and might be able to catch the next person in RBI (but I'm 25 behind). For pitching I need Whip and I have a a lead of 5 in wins. Is this a good trade as Beltre will give me all the hitting categories while Johnson and McDonald have decent Whip. My thought is Votto may not come back playing well and while I lose Dickey or Hamels the trade off might be worth it. PLease help

Redraft yes, Votto's out.
Beltre is a serious upgrade to the hot corner which is hard to fill.

Beltre/James McDonald would be great p/us for your stretch run ONLY IF ITS NOT A KEEPER. If it is just stand pat.

seems like alot to give up for the red hot Beltre which would lead me to say pass unless theres a Votto update I haven't seen
