Hosmer, Motte for Bautista?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Tue Mar 05, 2013 10:59 am

16 team points league where pitchers are slightly favored, H2H, auction style with 300 dollar cap, keeper(can keep as many players as you want per year) 23 man rosters. Draft is a slow auction draft which starts tomorrow. I have been offered this interesting trade:

MY Eric Hosmer(5) and Jason Motte(7) for HIS Jose Bautista(39), Chris Carter(4), and Michael Pineda(5). What do you think? I am thinking no because Bautista is so expensive but it is intriguing nonetheless.

MY Keepers going into the draft:

McCutchen(37)
KInsler(31)
Posey(28)
Pence(26)
Hart(19)
Maybin(10)
Hosmer(5)
Alicedes Escobar(4)

Brandon Morrow(18)
Tim Hudson(17)
Brandon League(9)
Kenley Jansen(9)
AJ Burnett(7)
Jason Motte(7)
Alex Cobb(4)

I would also say no. Your Hosmer price will likely pan out very well for you.

I'd pass. He's too high of a price for your team. If you had him, you'd have $241 already spent (if my calculations are correct) and still needing to fill 10 more spots and that just seems too high to go into a draft. Hosmer's great value for $5 so I'd hold onto him

I love me some Joey Bats, but you need to hold on to your auction dollars there. ;-D

No way I make that trade. Save the money. You'll be happy you did. And don't let him entice you by throwing another cheap player.
