Of the players mentioned, I slightly like Zobrist better for his track record and position eligibility for you, and I'd prefer to give up Zimmermann I suppose. Although he is more consistent than Latos, Latos looks like an ace right now that he is healthy.

Not really your problem, but what would your trade partner do at 2B if he trades Zobrist?



I'll probably throw him back Espinosa, I have no use for him if I get one of these two. Or Ike Davis, whom I considered dropping anyways.

since you said pitching is worth more and you can guys at cost, I'm going off of those assumptions.

Not sure if this works but I'd try to trade Zimmermann for Desmond and Fowler - gives you a lot of bang for your buck!

Pitching is worth equal or less, and I have pitching to spare, but I may try and rope in Fowler somehow.

I think your mind is set on Desmond, which was my choice as well. Thanks for the help on mine, and yea try and bring in Fowler since pitchers are more valued in your league.

Hmnn... I'm new to fantasy baseball & never been in a keeper league. Maybe offer S Castro & j Zimmerman for I Desmond & B Zobrist. I'm not as high on Castro as others.

It's now Desmond/Fowler/C-Villanueva for J-Zimm/Espi/Cingrani. As I said above, pitchers ARE NOT more valuable than hitters, and I have:

Zimm/Latos/Sale/Minor/Bailey/Cashner/Cingrani/Iwakuma/Corbin. I also have Beachy on the DL. Thanks for all the replies fellas, hope I've helped you guys out as well.

I'd go with zobrist, I just traded Desmond because his ridiculous ks were killing me, zobrist has put up about a 4:5 bb:k ratio in his career, and he's about a lock for 20:20ish. Plus you have Castro at short, zobrist is elibigle at 2b, ss, and OF

Don't trade for C-Vill his value will start to plummet. I like the deal minus Cingrani and C-Vill. Do the 2 for 2 if he will.
