Two trade options... opinions, please?

Postby thatguysound » Wed Aug 14, 2013 10:36 am

Looking at two trades, trying to decide which way to go.

Trade 1: Longoria and Profar for Cain and Heyward
Trade 2: Longoria and Napoli for Zimmerman and Santana

It's a H2H keeper league, although it's unlikely that I would keep any of the players I'm thinking about getting. Mostly I'm looking for help for the playoffs. See my sig for my current team.

Thanks!

Hey man trade two is absolutely lateral and I"d much rather have the longoria side there. #1 I would want no part of Matt Cain at all.

Try this Profar and Napoli for Heyward and Santana (this is fair for both sides here). You get younger at catcher and get that coveted OF you want.

If only those offers were from the same manager.

The manager with Cain told me they want to keep Cain since he has been pitching better for the past month or so. I countered with Longo, Profar, and E. Santana for Bruce and Shields. Will probably bump it up to Longo and Kinsler for Bruce and Shields. They have some depth at OF and SP (Cuddyer, Weaver, Corvin, Burnett on their roster), but their starting 2B and 3B are Altuve and Panda. That sound any better?

I don't like either trade. I don't think your improving your team at all and you're just taking on more risk. No thanks, stay put.
