Wright for Bumgarner (WHIR)

Do I do this?
I give: David Wright
I get: Madison Bumgarner

I could slot Zimmerman at 3B, and if he's still out there Monday morning when I get my 3 player adds for the week, I'll probably pick up Machado. He'll have 3B/SS eligibility, so he can backup both Castro and Zimm if something goes amiss.

I have the depth to do it, but is this enough value for David Wright?

Team/league info below. Thanks, and leave a link!!

I honestly think you deserve more for Wright. He is in the top 3 for TB in the NL, so he's an elite hitter. But if SP are really that more valuable in the points leagues then this trade would make sense.

I would look for a little more for Wright. I don't think it's a bad deal, but not a great deal.

I have Bumgarner and I would jump at getting Wright for him.
This isn't a bad trade, but I think you might get a bit more.

I have been trying to acquire Bumgarner myself, and I love who he can give from a fantasy perspective. But like others have said you can probably get more for Wright.

I agree. I have Bumgarner also and if I was offered Wright straight up, I would think I just got the best deal ever. I think a top-10 hitter can net more than just a top-10 pitcher as hitters play every day and pitchers are once, sometimes twice a week.

I would build off that and see what else I could get from him. Your starting pitching is set, but maybe he has a closer he could package with Bum to make it even? Maybe a 3b that you could plug in since he's getting Wright to replace him?

Just some things I would consider. Good luck!!

No. You have the chance to lose more points with Mad Bum, than Wright. With Wright, you have the chance to score more per day than Mad Bum.

If you still think you need Mad Bum, I would also be asking for a bat to replace Wright in the trade.
