Altuve or Seager? (Dynasty value)

Postby jnormy » Thu Jul 11, 2013 11:15 pm

Been offered Altuve for Seager straight up. It's a H2H dynasty league with standard 5 offensive cats plus OPS. I have an abundance of third basemen (Seager, Donaldson, Arenado), and next year when Seager loses his 2B eligibility I'll only have minor leaguer Kolten Wong at second. I took over a bad team last year and am on a full-on youth movement, which so far has been working since I have about a .500 record so far this season.

Is this a good deal for me? Is Altuve at least equal value to Seager, generally speaking? Seager provides more power stats, but Altuve is younger and gets a good amount of steals. My offensive roster is as follows:
C Salty
1B Goldy
2B Seager
3B Donaldson
SS Castro
LF Viciedo
CF Fowler
RF Revere
UTIL Joyce
BN Arenado
BN G. Sanchez (NA)
BN Soler (NA)
BN Wong (NA)

What say you, oh gurus of the Café?

With your depth at 3B (especially good, presumably cheap, keepers like Donaldson and maybe Arenado, though I'm not THAT high on him), I'd make this deal. Altuve is solid in AVG, SB and when HOU improves, which they have to (can't get a LOT worse), his R should improve. And he's got a little pop, too. I'd do this.

See mine? Thx. viewtopic.php?t=463259

Due to your black hole at 2b probably..though I like Seager more long term. See if you can keep Seager and maybe deal Arenado.

I would do it. Altuve is only 23 so still very good in dynasty format.
