In a vacuum, yes. Do you need a 1B or 3B, or just adding talent at this point?

Right now have have neither. But there will be some big 1b in the draft. As far as 3b, probably just looking at Youk. Kipnis's second half scares me too much. I

I'd trade for Lawrie then and bid on one of the many 1B that will be available.

I think I would rather have EE. I would bet the EE will put up better numbers than Lawrie and he is only a little more.

That's a given. What about EE + drafted 3B vs Lawrie + drafted 1B though?

EE qualifies at 3b in espn. So I would have him and draft a big 1b.

If he's eligible at 3B next year for you it's a no brainer. That said, he only had 1 game at 3B in 2012, and ESPN standard is 20 games the previous year meaning he won't have it for 2013. Even modified leagues are typically 5 to 10 games the previous year, so check your settings. ESPN hasn't updated eligibility yet for the 2013 season

Well you saved that trade for me ;-D . Just realized that espn hasn't updated the site. So he will only qualify at 1b next year. Man 3b is going to be really shallow.

Glad to help!

I have Lawrie as my 4th 3B in AL only leagues this year, just ahead of Middlebrooks and Seager. I think I'd actually prefer Seager to Middlebrooks however, as I see the price being far enough apart the production won't cover it.

Either way, very shallow, I have Josh Donaldson at 10, Plouffe at 11 and Machado at 12. I think I'll be taking a chance on Chisenhall this year in my AL only leagues. Enough contact and his pedigree gives me some faith he'll hit .265+, so so numbers everywhere else, but should be the guy, and in AL only that's something. Spend big somewhere else.
