Crawford for Beltran/Rios for Sandoval

Postby yanksrule2a » Tue May 21, 2013 1:03 pm

Hello, I was offered 2 separate trades in my Roto League: My Crawford for his Beltran, and my Rios for his Sandoval.

Rotisserie League -- Categories are Runs, HR, RBI, Hits, Avg, SB, & OPS

Team is:

C - Brian McCann
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Howie Kenderick
3B - Nolan Arenado
SS - Starlin Castro
OF - Alex Rios
OF - Carl Crawford
OF - Jose Bautista
Util - Alex Rizzo
Bench - Alcides Escobar
Bench - Lorenzo Cain
DL - Gioncarlo Stanton
NA - Will Myers

For Rios vs. Sandoval, no doubt Rios is the better player, but it would upgrade my 3B, and I have Stanton coming back from the DL and Myers waiting in the wings -- still it's hard to let go the better player.

For Crawford vs. Beltran, if I do the other one, I don't want to do this b/c those are most of my SB between those two players, but if I don't do the first one, I'm leaning towards going for this.


(For what it's worth, I'm killing in HR, but am 3rd to last in RBI (way too many solo shots) , Run Scored, and doing badly in average, am doing pretty good in SB, and medium in OPS)

Do you think you could swing crawford for sandoval? That's more fair. Then move cain into OF for some SBs.

I don't know how much you can rely on Stanton as strange as that sounds. Most importantly, we really do't know when he'll be back. Could be another month. Second, what do you expect from him? Lots of HR, few RBI (lots of solo shots), few runs, mediocre BA? Not really the cats you need. And you def cannot rely on Myers, he'll be a complete question mark.

I wouldn't do crawford for beltran. Beltran is aging, and will get hurt or slow down in the 2nd half. If you trade craw I'd try to get a more reliable rbi/BA
