NL Only Trade for Stanton

Postby wackadoodle » Wed Jan 09, 2013 9:39 pm

Been offered a trade in my NL only league.

HIS-
G.STANTON (5/OPTION)
FIRST ROUND FARM PICK (#12 OVERALL)

FOR MY-
S. CASTRO (5/OPTION)
C. UTLEY (14/2)
JACOB TURNER (1/2)
SECOND ROUND FARM PICK (23 OVERALL)

I'm pitching heavy and lite on hitting for my keepers. I like Turner at a buck and Utley for a bounce back player but I'm getting a ton of run production in return and I would really like to move up my second round farm pick (this is a really competitive league where high farm picks are good to have).

Advice? Thoughts?

Do you have SS covered w/o Castro? What type of player would you expect to be able to get with that draft pick? I need some additional information.

I only have four or five keepers for hitters as it is. If I did this I would be looking at most likely be going into the auction without any infielders. As far as the farm pick goes I have no idea yet who would be available at that point in the farm draft.

Yeh you lose the guy if traded to the AL. That's not why he wants to trade him. His team is pretty weak and is in dire need of some new life.

This would concern me alot. I think its a pretty good bet that 2-3 years (maybe sooner) from now Stanton will be on another team and quite possibly not eligible in your league. At least with Castro the Cubs seem committed to him being a building block of the franchise.

Also, Castro carries immense value in an NL only league as he is probably the best SS in a scarce position in the NL (tulo's injuries considered). I would pass on this deal.

You better hope if Stanton gets traded its to an NL team. Or he will have to hit close to 100 hrs to get 100 rbi. He'll probably break the record for most IBB. Hope your league uses OBP.
