Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Seems like he's generating some buzz in the fantasy baseball world at the moment. Should I drop Pedro Alvarez or Jose Tabata for him or just is he just the next trend?
My hitting lineup
C: Brian McCann
1B: Miguel Cabrera
2B: Brandon Phillips
3B: Jhonny Peralta
SS: Jose Reyes
OF: Matt Kemp
OF: Andrew McCutchen
OF: Drew Stubbs
Util: Adam Dunn
Util: Adam Lind
Bench: Jose Tabata
Bench: Pedro Alvarez
Holy shit, that is quite the offense you have right there. I'm guessing that's an 8-team or less league?
Anyway, I wouldn't bother in your case, with Miggy, Dunn, and Lind on your roster for 1B. Where would you play Hosmer?
I would definitely consider dropping Alvarez anyway. Tabata I'd hold on to.

I sold high & bought low on a lot of players. I only hold 2 bench spots so position doesn't really matter as I mostly sub players at utility.
Here's some trades that I made:
Got Andrew McCutchen for Derek Jeter
Got Zack Greinke & Jose Reyes for Tim Lincecum & Jayson Werth
Got Felix Hernandez & Brian McCann for Dan Haren & Jason Heyward
Got Drew Stubbs for Carlos Santana
I made tons of trades basically...haha.

Scott. You seem to know your baseball. Between Jose Tabata & Pedro Alvarez, who would you drop for him?
Had moderate expectations for Alvarez and I picked up Jhonny Peralta as a short-term fix, but it looks like he's even more of a solid play as of late. Does that make Alvarez expendable?
Having the same issue with Tabata, but OF seems to be less of an issue than 3B.
