I don't really need another OF but Locke was on the waivers for awhile so I picked him not to long ago. Ryu seems to be doing alright its just Stanton I don't know about

I would definetly do that trade. Ryun has been really good this season as well, plus Stanton has the potential to put up good numbers the rest of the season.

Locke has been rather lucky with strand and BABIP rates, he is due to regress at some point. Ryu is steady and solid. Stanton is worth stashing away. Its a fair swap of pitchers getting Stanton for free. However, you guys fail to notice, its a 2 for 1 and he has nothing but good players. There is no one on your team I would want to drop to do this trade see.

I would consider moving Shields, Napoli, Pujols for Buster Posey...try to acquire the #1 catcher in the game ;D.

ya he ended up making the trade with someone else. ya i would have had to drop a pitcher for stanton. so you want me to do a 3 for 1 trade? the guy who has posey is in last and might feel like making a move. doesnt seem like a bad trade off either.

Blowing him away with a legit catcher keeper, a still steady 1b and a solid SP keeper might be enough to overpay to get him its ok.

3 for 1 seems like a lot but it is for posey. the only position ive been trying to get all year thou. haven't really had a good catcher. I just think throwing in puljos is a lot

yeah, in a keeper league this trade doesn't happen.... but in a non-keeper league you're getting stanton AND ryu for locke? do it all day every day and twice on sundays. locke is no guarantee to keep up his magical mystery season and seeing as you obviously nabbed him for nothing from the FA/WW list, you're essentially giving up nothing to get stanton, who still should be a ~.270/30/100 pace player for the rest of his at bats this year. don't let the whole marlins thing faze you.... stanton is steak over sizzle, as he was ~37HR/86RBI last year despite missing a whole month.

obviously since the marlins are going nowhere this year you do run the risk that if he gets a little dinged up they'll be super mega cautious with him and err in favor of missing time, but like, at his core he's arguably one of the top ~3-5 raw power hitters in the game right now, so i think you give up whatever brilliance locke has been giving you and cash in for a more proven young star like stanton. no doubt.

and take a look @ my thread when you get a chance, will ye!?!?!? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=463326
