how to address my catcher trio?

Postby Ragoczy » Tue Dec 17, 2013 3:58 pm

NL only 5x5 keeper league and I have W Ramos, E Gattis & T d'Arnaud all at relatively the same contract price and length. Looking to trade one of them to address other areas of need. I'm keeping Ramos as I think he is the best combo of production and safety. I think Gattis rightfully has more trade value. Is d'Arnaud going to improve enough and is his future bright enough to merit trading away Gattis? Or am I better off keeping Gattis and trading low on d'Arnaud?

It depends on what you can get for each of them. Gattis has the most upside, IMO. I view him as a Mike Napoli type player potentially. Ramos is a very safe pick & D'Arnaud could end up being the most complete. If it were up to me I would feel pretty good about moving D'Arnaud, whom should still carry a fair amount of trade value, to moving forward with Ramos & Gattis.

I am biased so I'd go with Ramos and Gattis.

I think you let the trade offerings make the final decision; if you can get good value for Gattis trade him and help out another area.
