Safe to draft Rockies in NL Only?

Postby Sticky Spice » Thu Mar 07, 2013 5:30 pm

I'm in an NL-Only where some pretty high-profile Rockies will be available like CarGo, Tulo, Fowler, and Cuddyer.

My fear is that if I draft them they will get traded - possibly to the AL.

How realistic is my fear? Which players are more likely to be traded than others?

And while we're at it - do you think there are other NL teams that are also at risk, meaning that they are likely to have a fire sale and have players that we give a crap about?

If the Brewers were to get off to a horrible start they would be looking to trade Hart or Gomez. Both are on the last year of arbitration and both have in house replacements waiting behind them.

I can't think of an obvious team that would blow things up. The Phillies maybe if they get off to a horrible start?

Cargo and Tulo aren't going anywhere. Cuddyer could get traded. There aren't any teams in particular I'd be worried about.
