Cespedes or Adam Jones for Longoria?

Postby AVladRod » Mon Mar 18, 2013 2:57 pm

So we are about to do our keeper draft. No special rules/auction dollars/etc. 5X5 with OBP instead of AVG.

Here are my keepers to this point..We keep 8...meaning the 1st round in the draft is a "9th rounder"

Votto, Kinsler, Miggy, Longoria (UTIL spot), Justin Upton, Wainwright, Felix, Granderson (already traded Granderson for more picks, so I only have 1 OF)

So, 1 OF currently, and the best in the draft looks like Alex Rios or Carlos Gomez. Meaning...nothing great.

I have been offered two very similar deals. A 2nd rounder (essentially a high 10th rounder) and either Adam Jones or Cespedes for Longoria and my 5th rounder (essentially a high 13th rounder).

Would you do either of these, and if so, which one? Or, would you hold Longoria and just take the 35-100 from the util spot?

Yes I would take Cespedes and a 10th for Longoria. You have 3B covered with Miggy and quite frankly I have to say that Longoria may be one of the most overrated fantasy players out there.

Well if there are no decent OF available I would take Cespedes and the highest pick you can get. I'm not overly thrilled on dealing Longo but you have room on your roster to do so...I would maybe snag Gomez as a value pick. That cat has 20/50 potential with a small hit to your BA....poor man's Carl Crawford.

Thanks guys. Anyone else? Still hesitant to deal Longoria now and may get more value in season
