Dynasty trade involving Bundy

Postby kslackey » Fri Feb 08, 2013 3:38 pm

Greetings! 1st Post - look forward to using this site more often :)

I'm in a very deep dynasty league with limitless contract years. Could you tell me which side you would rather have in this trade?

Side A -

Xander Boagarts (SS BOS)
Domingo Santana (OF HOU)
Alen Hanson (SS PIT)
Gary Sanchez (C NY)

Side B -

Dylan Bundy

Do these guys count towards your roster?
Or do have a minors? How many?
Who do you have in minors now?

We have 75 roster spots - 34 Minor league spots. I traded for Bundy, I have an enormous amount of batting depth, but have inherited almost NO pitching depth from the previous owner.

Bundy is the best guy, but Bogaerts is going to be a big power 3B.
I like Henson, Sanchez likely moves from C.

Bundy helps you now. Not a bad deal.
It could turn out bad, if Bogaerts/Henson/Sanchez hit their ceiling.

Haha, I have no chance at competing this year. Those are some really young guys...gambling that only one of them hits their ceiling, which is reasonable.

Xander will be a beast *hoping he stays at SS so he will be the next Tulo!. Sanchez's value to fantasy assumes he remains at catcher.
Hensen I don't know a ton about.

Bundy on the other hand is a top pitching prospect, though I think you overpayed by one good prospect.

Interesting you say that, I actually have a feeling Xander is being overhyped right now by the Boston hype train. Xander's K% of 20% at A ball was worrisome to me, even with the added home runs. It's not unreasonable to believe that while his strike outs go up, his home runs decline. He certainly still has some body to fill into though (6'3" 175 LB is not a finished physical product).

A lot of sources are saying that Sanchez is an enormous liability behind the plate. If this continues, he'll shift to 1B and his production with his bat will be below value.

Hanson is interesting, he had a very similar stat line to Xander in A ball this year, except a whole year older. I'm always confused by people who talk about a "break-out" prospect like this because while his floor is decent and I believe he will contribute in the major leagues, his ceiling is an enormous wildcard. I don't see him reaching the majors for another 3 years after he's exposed at AA this year.

You got the best talent, and highest ceiling guy.
But you did give up 3 top prospects.

Sanchez won't last at C long, but his future power grades 70 on scouts 20-80 scale, hitting 50.
Bogaerts probably moves to 3B as he fills out.
His future power is 50, hitting 60.
Hansen will stay at SS. Hitting 60, power 40.

You got a future possible top 10 SP.
But i think all 3 of the other guys make a impact.
