Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Here's the rest of my team:
SS- Hanley Ramirez
OF- Nick Markakis
OF- Jermaine Dye
I understand your point...but Mauer is not a power hitter at all.....he has hit almost no HR's since that first month...and his BA is falling steadily...
most importantly..i still have Pablo Sandoval and will pick up AJ Perzinsky as a backup
I like the Mauer side, especially if you need help at C. Oddly enough Cueto's #'s have been similar to Johan this year (minus that one horrific start).
The difference between Santana and Cueto will be more than made up by what Mauer gives you.

I think some people misread your post. He's LOSING Mauer and gaining Santana.
It all hinges on who your backup C is, and how your overall team looks. I find that one batter can sometimes carry a team for a while, but it's rare for one pitcher to do that. With the year Mauer is having (and the future he has ahead of him if you're in a keeper league), he's likely going to offer more positive impact for your team than Santana. Give us an idea of what the rest of your team looks like maybe?
