Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
C.J Wilson & Alex Avila for Joey Votto?
before i had an excellent pitching group:
Sabathia, Felix Hernandez, Tim Lincecum, C.J Wilson, Trevor Cahill, Roy Oswalt, Barry Zito and Phillip Humber, but i traded Gaby Sanchez and T. Cahill for Cano, and now i'm trading Alex Avila and C.J Wilson for Joey Votto due the A-Rod surgery, i needed power.
The rest of my team is:
Rp: Cordero, Marmol, S. Santos.
People always get excited, about the player names but often they forget the team balance.
If this last transfer is made concrete i'll be losing another stable pitcher, resulting my SP in this:
Sabathia, King Hernandez, Lincecum, B. Zito, Bumgarner, Phillip Humber, R. Oswalt (DL).
Should i allow the trade?
in your league, Sanchez and Cahill can get you Cano? and Wilson and Avila can get you Votto? that's outragious. regardless of team balance, those are absolute steals. there are too many quality SPs out in FA. heck, i've picked up Beachy, Bedard, and Anibal all off FA this year. i'd have no problem at all waving goodbye to Cahill and Wilson if it meant bringing in that calibur of players.
avila is basically worthless for your team because you have vmart, and to use avila as your util spot would be silly. so that makes it wilson for votto. even if you really like wilson and dont want to lose good pitching you could take votto and trade him again and get a pitcher like weaver or hanson(just two pitcher who i have who i would trade for votto) who are better than wilson. so yes i would definitely do it

you're right, i really dont care about Avila, he was great but now is only a backup. i hope V Mart stays healthy. Maybe when A-Rod is back i can trade Konerko or Votto, who you would trade? and what konerkos worth?
What I will say is that if I had Votto, I certainly would not trade him away for Wilson and Avila. Wilson's really not that great, and Avila's inflated BABIP means his average is going to take a hit in the second half, while Votto is in the midst of another top-caliber season.
