My Morneau/Joyce for Hafner/Sandoval?

Postby bobsnits » Sun May 29, 2011 11:43 pm

I play in a 10 team H2H league. I have been looking to get a third baseman and utility for a while now. Morneau was originally going to be my Utility, but he hasn't been producing this season and his injuries freak me out a little. Also, I have a glut of outfielders on my team. I was just offered:

My Justin Morneau and Matt Joyce for his Travis Hafner and Pablo Sandoval.

If I get Sandoval, then I can put him at third and move Bautista in the outfield. Hafner is a pretty good utility. I still don't know if this is the best move. I am first in my division (undefeated), so I am wondering if it'd be better to just stay put.

Here's my roster:

C Russell Martin
1B Adrian Gonzalez
2B Martin Prado
3B Jose Bautista
SS Asdrubal Cabrera
OF Ryan Braun
OF Shane Victorino (when he comes off the DL this week)
OF Rajai Davis
OF Matt Joyce
UT Torii Hunter
BN Angel Pagan
BN Raul Ibanez
BN Ryan Ludwick
BN Jason Kubel
BN Justin Morneau

SP Josh Johnson
SP Roy Oswalt
SP Matt Cain
RP Alexi Ogando
P CJ Wilson
P Clay Buchholz
P Hiroki Kuroda
P Michael Pineda
P Ricky Romero
BN Jhoulys Chacin

Nope, do not do this trade. You are trading for two injury risks. Hafner hasn't been healthy for years and Sandoval is coming back from wrist issues....... Wrist injuries are known to linger.

I agree with the above post I think I would stay put or try another option for 3B the 2 players you are getting are injury prone. Hafner is healthy now but I don't see it continuing and Sandoval's injury scares me

I don't see how this deal really helps you since you'd be receiving two injured players. Even if Hafner and Sandoval were both healthy, I'd probably pass.
