Keeper Dillema

Postby ztsmith22 » Mon Jan 27, 2014 11:56 am

I am probably not going to compete this year. My hitting categories are R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP. My current starting lineup keepers are the following:

C - Santana
1B - Rizzo
2B - Kinsler
3B - Donaldson
SS - Castro
OF - McCutchen, J. Upton, Bruce
UTIL - Yelich

Would it make sense to try to obtain Heyward for Bruce? I love Bruce, but he is what he is. I feel like the upside and youth of Heyward might outweigh Bruce. Thoughts?

No way. Maybe say the question to yourself out loud. "Should I trade a sure thing young power hitter for an unproven hitter who has shown glimpses of power?"

I don't think I'd trade Bruce for Heyward right now. Bruce "is what he is", which is one of the most consistent power hitters around. Heyward hasn't shown that yet. I'd want Bruce on my roster for next season when you should be trying to compete for the title (given that you've tagged this year as your rebuilding year).
