Lawrie and Cueto for J. Upton and Miley?

Postby dgstrat » Mon Jan 07, 2013 11:41 pm

Hey guys. was offered Lawrie and Cueto this trade in a 16 team keeper league. SP and 3B are pretty tough slots in this league. Seriously considering it. Does upton have enough upside to not do this? Was going to drop miley anyway. Thanks.

This is a tough one. Upton is on an every other year pattern it seems, so 2013 could be big. Plus he finished really strongly in September. Lawrie was a mixed bag, plus his high ground ball rate will probably limit his power output. He's 23 though, so he's got plenty of room to grow. Cueto over Miley is a no brainer.

If you're looking for total value, Lawrie and Cueto will provide more than Upton and Miley. That said, I think Upton is the best bet of the bunch for 2013. If your pitching staff can absorb some regression of Miley, I'd stay put.

If you wouldn't mind returning the favor, can I get your input on my trade issue?

I like Upton, he will be solid, it's just takinga bit longer than most impatient, what have you done for me lately, you are killing my fantasy team fellas would like to see.

I'd take Upton and Miley all day long. Upton is going to explode one of these days.

please help my trade question about getting Stanton and Granderson. Thanks.
