Post both your rosters so we can help you figure out a good 2nd piece to ask for ok.
I would KEEP Votto. He's a top 5 1b and in his prime. He will carry you to a championship for years to come.
If your trading a top bat for an older but workhorse starter that's ok, but you need another piece to compensate value.
Rosters and FAs please.
Thing is, I don't want to move Pujols. I know I should move him but he is one of my favorite players and I just wouldn't feel right on trading him. Really my last "favorite" guy in baseball. I have other guys but not to this extent.
C - Wieters, Soto
1B - Pujols, Votto, Hosmer, Rizzo, Smoak
2B - Pedroia, Hill
3B - Longoria, Alvarez
SS - Tulowitzki, Castro,
OF - Justin Upton, Kemp, McCutchen, Bruce, BJ Upton, Morrison, Snider
SP - Felix, Kershaw, Price, Gallardo, Cahill, Gio, Nolasco, Scherzer, Rubby De La Rosa, Wainwright, Matusz, Brett Anderson
RP - League, Salas, Melancon, Parnell
Minor League Notables: Matt Moore, Shelby Miller, Jesus Montero, Manny Machado, Zach Lee, Jordan Lyles, Carlos Martinez
As you can see my team is pretty well off. And the only real reason I am thinking about this deal is that it would solidify my rotation. This league is H2H with no SP limits so the more pitching you have, the better off especially top guys. I won the league last year and I am poised to be in the top for years to come barring major injuries. By making this move I would probably win this year pretty easily with a good chance of another title next year but after that I would worry about how good Halladay will be.
Really torn on this. I usually say to go for the win now and that is what this would be. But really hard to give up on Votto.
