I would rather have Ad. Gonz personally



I strongly disagree, I think Price is a much better talent.


I strongly agree with your disagree. Price is a hell of a pull for A-Gonz, who already has seen his stock drop significantly from past years.

Adrian is great for RBIs and AVG, but the HRs won't be there for him anymore thanks to Dexter Fowler. He will struggle to score some runs too.

I imagine Marco Estrada is a good buy low?
.324 BABIP. compared to last year .298 BABIP, and career .299 BABIP.
23.4 HR/FB. compared to last year of 10.5 HR/FB, and career of 12.9 HR/FB.
4.3 IFFB%, compared to last year of 18.0 IFFB%, and career 13.4 IFFB%.
17.1 LD%, compared to last year of 20.3 LD%, and career 18.4 LD%.
K are still there and walks are still low, 9.08 K/9, 2.79 BB/9, compared to 9.30 K/9 and 1.89 BB/9 last year.

I expect Estrada to perform at the level projected in pre-season for the rest of the year. He's a guy I like and am actively trying to buy. Currently have an offer out on the table of any 2 of my Prado/Victorino/Ogando/Gattis for Wieters & Estrada.

Buy low on Brett Lawrie! He raked at the top of the lineup last year until he got injured.

Any Starling Marte owners debating selling high? Not sure what everyones thoughts are on him for the rest of the year. I own him in 2 of my keepers and I can't decide if I should sell or enjoy the ride.
Anyone sell him yet?

I traded Marte and Cingrani for Hamels..I made a trade beforehand that weakened my pitching and I had too many good outfielders, so I decided to sell both Marte and Cingrani high for a stud proven pitcher. My thinking was I just got a 3rd round pitcher for two players I picked up in free agency, and Cingrani's future is uncertain. I might regret giving up Marte but really he was projected to be around a .260/12 homer/30 sb guy so I figured he just had a really hot april possibly.
