Trade For 2B....Help!

Postby millerpark » Sun Apr 07, 2013 11:05 am

Hello All.
I'm Looking to try and trade for a 2B because all I have is Gyorko and there is nothing worth a waiver claim.
16 Teams ESPN Points League

Do you think I could try and trade Micke Saunders for Ricki Weeks?
or do you have another suggestions?

Roster:
C Mike Napoli, Bos C, 1B
1B Justin Smoak, Sea 1B
2B Jedd Gyorko, SD 2B
3B Matt Carpenter, StL 1B, 3B, OF
SS Josh Rutledge, Col SS
OF Nelson Cruz, Tex OF
OF Emilio Bonifacio, Tor OF
OF Gerardo Parra, Ari OF
UTIL Mark Trumbo, LAA OF, 1B, DH

Bench:
Lonnie Chisenhall, Cle 3B
Michael Saunders, Sea OF
Collin Cowgill, NYM OF

Yasiel Puig, LAD OF (Worthy of holding onto?)

Pitchers:
P Ross Detwiler, Wsh SP
P Matt Thornton, CWS RP
SP Stephen Strasburg, Wsh SP
SP Matt Cain, SF SP
SP Yonanni Gallardo MIL SP
RP John Axford, Mil RP
RP Jim Henderson, Mil RP

Well, if you're willing to be patient, Carpenter will eventually have 2B eligibility, because when Freese comes back, Carpenter will slide over to 2B. In addition, Bonfacio could find himself with 2B at some point this year as well.

So, what I would be concerned with is how to fill in 3B a little better, because you're going to eventually have enough moving parts that 2B should always be filled by whichever player is hotter at any given time.

If this is not a keeper league, I'm not so sure Puig is worth holding, because he will have very little impact (and most likely 0 impact) this year.

Ah, well I would assume Strasburg/Cain are your first 2. And if you're allowed a third, I guess it could be Puig, so maybe you could hold onto him. But still, with only 2-3 keepers, That's a lot of trouble to go through for this season, wasting that roster spot just so can keep him for next year. I'd rather have the immediate help. It's up to you.

Specifically concerning your deal, you'll have a very difficult time getting someone like Weeks with Saunders as the bait.

With only 2 or 3 keepers um I'd cut Puig probably.
I'd stick with Gyorko at 2b.
