Prince. Bird in the hand.

Puig's going to cool off. Prince has a long track record of proven success. Let's not lose our heads. Go vote for Puig to make the ASG, and try to get a subtle SP upgrade in the process, but take Prince.

Puig has a swinging strike rate of 19% right now, and a contact rate around 68%... to put that in perspective, BJ Upton has a 15% swinging strike rate right now, and Cespedes is at a cool 13%. Good hitters (Prince included) are typically under 10%, and really good ones under 8%.

That said... Prince all day, every day. I don't want to be the one holding the leash of the ManBearPuig when that slump comes, because it is going to be a cold, COLD winter in my opinion.

Prince. He has time on his side. The guy who said "bird in the hand" had it right.

I am thinking about trading away an expensive Miggy to get a cheap CarGo in a keeper league. Can you help with advice on this one?

Prince for all the reasons listed above. I think there is a chance Puig outperforms Prince, but not by a huge margin. I think there's a better chance that Prince outperforms Puig and I think there's a chance he outperforms him by a huge margin. Just not huge upside in selling Prince for Puig, but lots of downside.

Hate to keep harping on this but I was now offered Puig/Votto for Wright/Kershaw..I think this is pretty even but not blowing me away. That risk factor of Puig hitting a slump is making me back off a bit.

Thoughts?
