I have to admit it was not love at first sight but as time has passed, I have grown to love Stanton. I really do think that he has enormous potential and will avoid turning into a Mark Reynolds (YUCK!).
Anyways, I've been offered a trade that might not give me the best player in the trade but it does give a solid prospect in return and 2 pitchers that could possibly help me achieve first place in standings this year. I came 2nd in standings last year to a team that is just monstrous, I'm in a 14 Team Dynasty league with standard 5x5 categories. So far this year, my team isn't doing so badly in the batting (although SBs are a weakness) but my pitching is terrible.
The trade goes like this:
Provided below is the roster of my team:
C: Alex Avila
1B: Joey Votto, Adrián González, Billy Butler
2B: Rickie Weeks, Chone Figgins
3B: Ryan Zimmerman, Alex Gordon,
SS: Stephen Drew, Alicedes, Escobar
OF: Justin Upton, Chris Young, Delmon Young, Mike Stanton, Michael Brantley
SP: Homer Bailey (DL), Cole Hamels, Chad Billingsley, Clay Buchholz, David Price, Brandon Webb (DL)
RP: Francisco Rodríguez, Carlos Mármol, Drew Storen, Joel Hanrahan
(I also have Desmond Jennings in the Minors)
What do you think? Is it worth it to trade Mike Stanton?
Please do let me know.
Many thanks for helping out.
