I would be on the end getting Votto. This is a dynasty head to head league with 28 man roster. I have Axford and Perez as other closers, and right now have Ike Davis, Kila, Freeman, and Carlos Lee as my possible 1B. My pitchers are Oswalt, Lester, Hanson, Scherzer, Danial Hudson, Kennedy, A. Sanchez, Bedard, Beachy, Minor, Jurrjens, Gio Gonzalez,Hellickson, and Webb on DL. Would you make the trade?
I was expecting to have to say that this wasn't enough of a return for Votto, since these posts almost always have the person getting the trio of players rather than the stud. However, that's not the case here, and I'd make the deal. Oswalt is solid, but he's aging so loses value in a dynasty league. Street has his ups and downs, is an injury risk, and the Rockies pen has plenty of good options behind him. Freeman is very interesting, but he's nowhere near Votto.
looks good to me. I'm very anti-Street and although Oswalt is good, you gotta give up something. plus he's getting old. and you have plenty of other arms to offset that. Votto will be good for years to come. you don't know what you're gonna get w/ Freeman. I would do the trade.
