Overpaid for Stanton?

Postby smoovethug » Wed Apr 03, 2013 4:01 am

12 team redraft h2h 7x7 (K, OPS for hitters). Just traded Adrian Gonzalez, Crawford, and Gardner for Stanton, Gyorko, and Viciedo. I have Rizzo to slide to 1b, and wanted to solidify my MI with Gyorko (when he eventually gets 2b elig). Figured I still have enough speed to get by although I lose a good deal here. Thoughts?

I like Stanton very much but with that 7th hitting cat being Ks I don't like the overall deal. Dayan + Stanton alone should be well north of 350K if/when Stanton presses due to no one pitching to him.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

Not sure you over payed. If you did it wasn't by enough to be concerned about.

The K's are a downside yes, but that will/should be made up with his monstrous OPS. I currently won't be starting Viciedo anyway. Thanks for the input.

I'm not a huge believer in Stanton this year. I think he will have a ton of HRs (assuming he's even pitcher to) and not much else. Also, it really depends on which Crawford shows up this year. All in all probably not a bad chance to take and Stanton has big name value if you decided to flip him again in another deal.
