    Good deal? I just traded Mauer for Prado.

    In 1st place and with Pedroia down im not banking on Howie Kendrick. I can fill in for Mauer with my choice of Posey, Santana or Olivo. Who would you take of the three? Good deal or not?

    • howie numbers are actually better then pedroias I'm wondering how u even got in first the way u think

    • i wouldnt tarde mauer for any of those 3. i actually think you would be crazy to. also, id be fine with howie as my starting 2B hes a historically good 2nd half player and he hasnt been bad thus far.

    • even considering Posey's hot streak, I like Santana over him slightly although I believe both are rosterable. I don't see how all 3 of those catchers are available tho because they all have value especially the first 2.

      I'm on the fence on the trade, it hurts to get rid of Mauer considering where you probably drafted him, but he's just not going to be the power hitter you expected the rest of this year and if he doesn't hit like .360 the rest of the way he's about just as value as prado is this year. I think the trade makes sense and you probably did the right thing, but off name value it just seems odd to give up Mauer for Prado. Its not about name value tho, so I don't think you lost, and overall you probably made your team better.
