Based on your team I assume Zobrist would move to the outfield and you would have Desmond at MI. Its a tough call but I think I would rather keep Marte

Stay put. You already have a lot of power and I think Marte will have a better avg than Desmond. I don't think you can afford to lose one of your best base stealers.

I would stay put. The slight increase in HRs won't make up for the loss in SBs and the average is a wash. I think if you do this, you'll lose points in SBs, won't really gain anything in HRs. I don't see the advantage.

Help with mine?

Is there anyone who thinks I should do this trade due to Marte possibly regressing? The offer I received expires in 2 hours.

Marte and Desmond are both in slumps

I'd stay put based on needs. that being said I do like desmond a lot so if you can flip asdrubal for a decent of to replace marte's stats I could see it

I actually like Desmond here. Marte sure has a small advantage in steals but you gain in power (Marte had a nice power barrage early on but isn't an elite power/speed combo threat that Desmond in. I would take Ian and grab some cheap speed off the ww. you have an excellent OF there when Holliday gets back your set.
