Is This A Panic Trade On My Part? WHIR Leave A Link(UPDATED)

Postby METS 24 » Mon Apr 22, 2013 2:51 pm

13 team non-keeper roto league.

I'm usually the guy who trades for hitters like Stanton when they are underperforming so I get all their good stats but was just offered a trade for him.

Question #1: Should I do this?

Question #2: Would you rather have Anthony Rizzo or Pablo Sandoval?

My roster is listed below in my sig.

I Give
(3B) Anthony Rendon (WAS)
(OF) Giancarlo Stanton (FLA)
(SP) Dan Haren (WAS)

I Get
(1B) Anthony Rizzo (CHC) or (3B) Pablo Sandoval (SFG)
(OF) Torii Hunter (DET)
(SP) Matt Moore (TBR)

I'd do this. Stanton has zero protection in that lineup & will continuously get pitched around. Perhaps he gets dealt to a contender mid-summer, but do you want to risk it? I'd attempt to upgrade over Moore or Hunter first, but ultimately, I would accept the deal as is with Rizzo instead of Pablo. Go with a Machado/Rendon platoon at 3B and insert Rizzo into your UTL spot.

I'd do it but I'd take Sandoval over Rizzo. Sandoval has a better supporting cast and could drive in a lot more runs and prolly score more runs than Rizzo. Just sucks he plays 81 games in SF but he makes hitting a homer there look easy.

Both responses tell me to do the trade but one person says to ask for Rizzo & the other person says to ask for Sandoval. I need a few more opinions. Rizzo or Sandoval? WHIR!

I'd do Rizzo his BA will go up and you IMO need a 1b upgrade more than a CI...which is covered anyway with Machado/Rendon.
