6 keeper vanilla with CI/MI and 5 OF's

Postby Frenchiegangsta9 » Wed Oct 24, 2012 7:37 am

I am leaning towards offering Holliday for Beltre. Bautista lost his 3b elig so he would slide behind Braun in the OF. Sound like a good idea to get the 2nd or 3rd best 3B?

Holliday has looked terrible recently, and although I don't buy it entirely, Beltre seems rock solid. I would make that deal.

I would take Beltre as well.

I easily take Beltre over Holliday. Much greater reliability.

If he takes it, do it. But I think he might want a little more back than Holliday, i know I would.

I am not sure you can get the owner to accept that deal. We're talking the 3rd best 3B in mixed leagues for the 21st best OF - according to my projections.

Unless it's a contract/dollar keeper situation, I'm thinking you'll have to offer more.

If you can get that deal through however, you're golden. Like you said, shift Bautista to the OF and call it good.

What about targeting Hanley or Aramis Ramirez (Aramis more likely due to not having SS eligibility and age)? Seems like Holliday for one of them would line up much better, and would still give you a solid 3B option, while dealing from depth with Bautista moving to the OF.
