we are in a keeper Auction League, And A-rod would be too expensive to keep. I drafter Lawrie last year and kept him for $5 this year while next year he would be $8.
Now currently as it stands Lawrie has been moved to bat in the #1 spot for Toronto (will that last)
Lawrie and A-rod have similar #'s right now, with the exception that lawrie has more steals and a-rod has more Walks (Which is a stat in our league)
I am wondering for the long haul, is this a good trade to make?
I lose out on steals, i probably lose out on runs scored if he stays in the leadoff spot
If i take a-rod i gain HR's most likely and Rbi's and Walks
My current lineup is
C - Jesus Montero
1b - Joey Votto
2b - Jason Kipnis
ss - Ian Desmond
3b - Brett Lawrie
Of - Shin Shoo Choo
Of - Hunter Pence
Of - Alejandro De Aza
Util - Adrian Gonzalez
Ben Zobrist - because he is slumping
Dee Gordon - Slumping
Our Offensive scoring catergories are Runs, HR's, RBI's, SB's, BB's and Ave
My Team has been far from a power team this year, and we are in a H2H league and im wondering if its smart for me to give up runs and sb's?
I am also thinking that when Ellsbury gets back i take Shin shoo out of my lineup and I make up the steals... I dunno, how do you guys weigh this option presented to me?
