Which side of this deal would you take? WHIR

Postby clarkw267 » Wed Jun 26, 2013 12:28 pm

12 team Roto with standard cats.

Just from a pure value standpoint, which of these sides would you prefer?


Team A gets:
Andrew McCutchen
Craig Kimbrel

Team B gets:
Dominic Brown
Zach Greinke
Yasiel Puig

EDIT: The first few responses confirmed what I thought. So what does replacing Parra with Puig do?

Unless I was DYING for SP help, I would prefer McCutchen and Kimbrel. I don't trust any of the three on the Team B side enough. Hard to say for sure without seeing the full context of what these players mean to their teams, obviously.

to me Team A, and not even close. top 3 OF and top closer vs. early surging OF who is now sorta slumping and a SP who will never meet full potential.

Team A. Team A is solid, you know what you're getting. Team B is a bunch of question marks.

Give me Team A for sure, McCutchen is the best player in the deal.

Thanks and that's what I thought, what does adding Puig in to the mix do to balance the value?

I think adding Puig makes it much more intriguing, but I still would go with A without too much hesitation.

I think adding Puig makes the deal fair. I still think I would choose Team A ROS just because McCutchen is a proven top tier player and I'm not sold on Brown or Puig. In a dynasty or 8+ keepers Team B wins.

Thanks for helping on mine.
I think it's really hard to value Puig right now. I own him in a league and I wouldn't trade him unless I got a huge haul. McCutchen makes it interesting, because he's a legit blue chipper.
In the first deal, I think I go with Puig side. If you sub in Parra, surely McCutchen side

Thanks for help on mine.

Team A - again, Andy is the best player in the deal and though Puig has been ripping it up, MLB is a long season.
