Stanton trade

Postby DeShields11 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 9:05 am

Would you make this trade in a 6x6 head to head league (5 standard categories plus OPS)?

Rizzo or Heyward-out 2 weeks following appendectomy


Weaver-out until mid-to-late May with broken non-throwing elbow

A few weeks ago I would have considered it a no brainer, and generally am one to look to exploit fast/slow starts, but there is also a scenario where this could not turn out well (i.e. spend a month without a pitcher waiting for Weaver, Stanton wallows away in Miami, Heyward returns to form, Fowler has his break out year). I have extra OFs is the reason for pursuing the trade (Holliday, A. Gonzalez, Aoki, De Aza, in addition to Fowler & Heyward). Was hoping to buy lower but it's looking like this is the best I could do.

I wouldn't do it. Sale is about equal to Weaver at this point, if not better. Fowler is a bit of a mirage but he has more value than you are getting here. I'd rather dump Heyward in the deal but you should get a better arm than Weaver.

Yeah i wouldnt do that. Stanton is good but he has no one hitting around him to protect him. Theres no reason any pitcher has to give stanton anything to rip this season. And weaver has been on and off the DL i wouldnt risk giving sale for him.

help please?
