Do this trade or not?

Postby petachi » Thu Feb 24, 2011 10:16 pm

7x7 roto league, 14 teams
TB, OBP are the extra hitting stats

We can keep 7 for this year and mine are as follows right now:

Tex - 1b
Pedroia - 2b
Youkilis - UT right now but 3B shortly after season begins
Stubbs - OF
Werth - OF

Oswalt - SP
Hamels - SP

I have Granderson that I'm on the fence about but he'd probably not make it over Stubbs right now.

I've been offered:



My 16th round pick (which is round #9 basically since we keep 7)

I'm seriuosly considering this offer as I like Dunn's chances on putting up a good year in Cellular and on a better team and ofc his OBP comes in handy. I also think Prado could come pretty close to putting up same numbers as Pedroia really especially since I'm not sure Peds will be much of a SB threat this year with his foot held together by screws.

I do think Stubbs is for real in the HR/SB department but I worry about his AVG/OBP and I've already mentioned that although I love Pedroia I am worried about his foot over the course of an entire season.

A small help is also that Prado would qualify at 3B for me until Youk does and then I can move him to 2B.

What would all of you do?

I love Dunn. I love Prado. Especially his versatility.

But you'd be giving up your speed (SB project to what, 20 SB for Pedroia and maybe 30 for Stubbs?...Sporting News) So both those players cover much of your runs and SB projections.

Plus you'll still get some HRs from Pedroia and Stubbs. I also think they compliment Tex on your roster (boosting his AVG.) And, this season, I am moving all my top second basemen up in value because I think after the top few, the position is scarce (I know you can play Prado at 2B but he & Dunn only better you in HRs and OBP, not AVG., not runs, not TBs, not Sbs (IMO)

I stay put here

No. I like your side better. I like Dunn and Prado as well but Peroia is the best player in the deal and I am interested to see what Stubbs does this year.
