Pando or Headley? Keeper league trade

Postby Newkie » Sat Mar 09, 2013 11:36 am

I was offered Sandoval or Headley and a draft pick for Ben Zobrist. Which one of those would you take? I don't need a 2B, SS, and I dont need him as an OF, but I have no 3B going into the draft. My 2B is Kipnis and my SS is Castro. Which one of those two mentioned in the subject title would you take if any?
Its a H2H 6x6 10 manager 10 keeper league. The only difference that might come into play is it has OBS instead of BA.

Thanks in advance

Zobrist value does go up a little bit...
but I see the reason for doing this deal to get a 3b.

I'm sure I'm in a very small minority, but I'm not 100% sold on Headley. We're talking about a player who hit almost a third of his career HRs during the final two months of last season to skew his numbers. For me, that's just someone who was in a groove....not the norm. Did the light suddenly click on for him on August 1st last year? Maybe. But I'm not totally buying it.

(And yes, I know they brought in the fences in SD during the offseason.)

It's a gamble to go with Headley on one year worth of strong statistics, but he might be worth rolling with for his added speed. Since Sandoval will be challenged to bounce back a bit from injuries and a down year, even getting 20/10 at .275 from Headley might be worth more to you than Sandoval at a solid enough year. I say make the trade and go with Headley, but either are fine options for Zobrist.

I'll go with Headley also. The panda is my starting 3Bman but he's had too many injuries to take over Headley.

I take Headley. Getting Headley and a draft pick for Zobrist is a good deal, considering your team make up.

I agree, and if it wasn't Panda as the alternative I'd probably go with the "non-Headley" pick. However, Panda has some of his own issues.

Since you're missing a 3B and have a solid 2B replacement in Kipnis, I'd go with Headley. He's higher ranked and as you can see the people who are high on him are pretty high (no pun intended). As a result, worse comes to worse you take Headley and the pick and turn around and make another deal to upgrade him to a higher 3B.
