Trade Yasiel Puig for Hanley Ramirez? WHIR

Postby spow » Mon Jun 24, 2013 9:04 pm

I have Yasiel Puig and got offered Hanley Ramirez. My only other ss is Josh Rutledge. I have keepers such as Andrew McCutchen, Giancarlo Stanton, Paul Goldshmidt, Wil Myers, Dominic Brown, Manny Machado, Matt Kemp, Kershaw. It is a 5 keeper league. Should I sell high or could Puig make a legitimate case to be one of my keepers/ better contributor than Hanley? Thanks, WHIR.

No way I make that trade. I think HanRam is overrated and is also proving to be injury prone. I think you could get more for Puig if you really want to trade him(especially in a keeper league).

I agree. The trade isn't bad, but Puig has so much juice right now, you could get any SS on the planet for him. The only problem is, no SS are really worth Puig at this point. Maybe try to get Tulo+ for him or snag Ian Desmond and a pitcher. Either way, don't trade Puig for Hanley.

I think your 4 keepers are Cutch, Stanton, Goldy and Kershaw as of now. That being said the rest of the guys all have a pretty equal chance of being the 5th, however I think your best bet would be Machado. I would make this trade. I think HanRam is still one of the elite SS/3B in the game, and would be a huge upgrade for you. And with the players you mentioned, your outfield seems pretty stacked, even without Puig.

Puigs BABIP is .509 and when that bombs, so will his AVG. His BB% is 3.7 and his K% is 20.7... accept this gift. Puig is going downhill very soon. He wont be a terrible OF to have, but he's no top choice for 3B and SS like Hanley is. Whoever owns Hanley was so frustrated this season that they thought "if he kills it right when he comes back, I'm selling him." There's a reason why he's killing it.

Whoa, only Rutledge, you have to do this trade with your stacked OF.
