Need help with a trade

Postby Mikeyc » Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:23 pm

Hey guys I'm a believer at this point in Chris Davis but could use some sp help and have been offered wainwright/starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo for Davis and Ervin santana . This is a 12 tm 5x5 h2h league that I'm currently in 7th place in right on cusp of playoff spot. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Without looking at your team, I like what you would be getting in return. Wainwright is a top 3 pitcher right now and could very easily be the rest of the season. I do believe in Chris Davis but I do expect him to slow down at least a little at some point. Rizzo has been playing pretty well of late also and is a good first baseman. On top of that I expect Castro to play better in the second half of the season.

Davis for Wainwright straight up is a decent deal for the guy getting Wainwright. Losing Ervin Santana would not bother me in the least as I do not believe. That said, unless you need a SS\your current SS is a total scrub, Castro is sort of baggage at this point and likely will be sittin gon your bench. In that case, I would look to get a player you need to fill a gap.

Rizzo is OK but nothing spectacular. Certainly worth playing.

I have Heyward in one league and he has been a complete waste. Benched\dL'ed most of the time and even though he is hitting much better since coming back, he still basically is not lighting the world on fire. Can't deal him for squat with the numbers he has too. If you have to start him if you trade Davis, I would think twice about the deal depending on who was on the free agent wire.
