Trade Wright for Donaldson + closer? WHIR

Postby lyons595 » Tue Aug 13, 2013 3:43 pm

It looks like Wright is done for the year based on comments from the NYM manager on MLB.com. He MAY be back in 3-4 weeks, so that'd put him back in time for the last 2 weeks of the playoffs. I'm winning my division ($$ pay out in my league) and in 3rd overall headed into the playoffs in 2 weeks. Bottom line is, does swapping Josh Donaldson + Fernando Rodney make me better than POTENTIALLY having Wright, Moustakas, and Infante? I put my current line-up in with the possible replacements in ().

ESPN, h2h each cat, 12 team, 4 RP max, daily roster changes. Cats: standard 5x5 plus OPS, QS. Non-keeper. I stream 6+ SP (or starts) weekly.

C Jonathan Lucroy
1B Eric Hosmer
2B Omar Infante (Prado)
3B Martin Prado (Donaldson)
SS Jose Reyes
OF Josh Willingham
OF Allen Craig
OF Michael Bourn
UTIL Adam Dunn
Bench Mike Moustakas
DL David Wright (---)

SP Garrett Cole, Chris Archer, Ivan Nova, Jake Peavy, Brandon Beachy
RP Rafael Soriano
RP Sergio Romo
RP Chris Perez
(RP Fernando Rodney)

Donaldson hasn't done much post all star break but I still think you need to do this trade in a non-keeper. Who knows how long Wright will be out. 2 months of Donaldson will be better than a few weeks of Wright.

Thanks for helping me

thanks for your help.

I agree with prior poster. In non-keeper, I definitely do this deal. I have both players currently on my roster, and while Donaldson has slowed down, he's better than someone who won't play at all. Do the deal and don't look back.
