Yeah, take this trade right now. I don't agree with any of the posts on the value of Peavy/Reddick/and Ortiz at all. This isn't 2007 people ok...Peavy has had a good start to this year, no doubt about it, but he's way way waaaaaaay past his prime. His surgeries and Cellular Field are the 2 main reasons why he will NEVER again reach the fantasy dominace that he once enjoyed. It's not going to happen, the regression is coming folks, its just taking longer this year. So because he hasn't been horrible from the start we are supposed to believe this is a magical resurgence? Please. Ortiz is in the same boat, again its not 2007 people, lol. Ortiz has also had a good start to the season, and he's also slimmed down a bit which has definitely helped his game...but he's 36 years old and there will be no Delorean taking him back to 2007's numbers. A .280-.280, 25-30 HRs, and 80 or so RBI line is about the best case scenario that you can hope for, and while that's decent it's no where near where Stanton's .260-.290, 40 HRs, and 100+ RBIs will take you. Reddick intrigues me somewhat, but is widely viwed as a flash in the pan that will not be able to sustain this pace. His regression has already started. He's a decent OF option in deep mixed leagues, but I'm thinking more along the lines of a .269, sub 20 HR, 50-60 RBI, 100 K season at this point. And he plays 81 games in the spacious Oakland Coliseum on the bay where the cool summer nights are notoriously unkind to hitters seeking big HR totals. Unless your name is Barry Bonds, you use the cream and the clear, and they build a stadium thats tailor made for your swing. Lol So I'd take the deal, seven days a week and twice on Sunday!!!!
