Tulo or Stanton?

Postby Nuclear29 » Mon Dec 31, 2012 11:54 am

10 team, 8 keeper (with no restraints on years), 2 catcher, MI & CI, 5 OF, 5x5. Categories are: HR, SB, DT (doubles+ triples), RP (runs produced = R + RBI - HR) OBP and standard pitching. My keepers as of now are:

Napoli
Wieters
Tex
Pedroia
Tulo
Reyes
Wright
Trout

I'm a big believer in position scarcity and I can play both Reyes and Tulo. DT make Reyes a very good option. Should I offer Tulo for Stanton? I think he would accept as he has no keeper option at SS. Love Giancarlo, but Tulo is the best at his position if he can stay on the field. Both guys have no help on their respective teams. Stanton is 23 and Tulo is 28. Aside from homers, Stanton hasn't had the best counting stats. Trout and Stanton in my outfield for the next 10 years sounds real nice. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm ok with it. You'd be relieving yourself of a lot of risk even if you're 'selling' low'. I'd try to find a taker for Tex if you could though.

Thanks for the input. How about Tulo for Pujols? Think Albert has a few more good years?

I preferTulo
He is a legit .300 hitter, something Stanton will never be.

I like the idea of trading Tulo for Pujols much more than for Stanton. I would prefer to keep Tulo over Stanton. I agree with the previous poster about trying to move Tex...

The last 2 years, Pujols OPS has dropped to .906 and .859.
There is now way i give up a top 25 player for a declining Pujols.

I'd want them in this order:

Pujols
Tulo
Stanton

Agree that you need to move Tex if possible.

Pretty much the same thoughts. Tulo is the best of the three. Stanton has huge power but his other numbers aren't going to be there. There is no one in Miami to build up his RBI or knock him in. I still like Pujols but he has as many question marks as Tulo. Keep the younger SS and Tex and Reyes for an upgrade.
