    Dynasty League Trade - Who Wins?

    Team A Gets:
    Paul Goldschmidt
    Jordan Zimmermann
    C.J. Wilson

    Team B Gets:
    Eric Hosmer
    Either Jarrod Parker or Eric Bard (Who's a better long-term option of the two?)

    The manager of A needs pitching and the manager of B needs an upgrade at first. Thoughts?

    • Great advice and questions so far. Thanks! This is going to be a bit long. Apologies in advance.

      Full disclosure, I am Team A. The league is a 12 team dynasty, meaning we keep everyone next year too. Eleven of the managers are good, and one stinks.

      My pitching staff has been decimated with injuries and guys stinking it up:

      Mike Minor
      Ian Kennedy
      Ryan Vogelsong
      Huston Street
      Javy Guerra
      Daniel Bard
      Sean Marshall
      Eric O'Flaherty
      David Robertson
      Lance Lynn
      Brandon McCarthy
      Jarrod Parker
      Mat Latos
      Yovani Gallardo

      Jhoulys Chacin
      Daniel Hudson
      Drew Storen
      Michael Pineda
      Brian Wilson

      My current 1st basemen are Hosmer, Tex, and Cabrera. Cabrera will eventually lose 1st base eligibility, leaving me with Tex and Hosmer. If I get rid of Hosmer, then I'm left with just Tex. I have Cabrera, Lawrie, and Zimmerman at 3rd so I could make a deal there. I expect Hosmer to be a stud and it would leave me short staffed at 1st. That's basically what's keeping me from pulling the trigger.

      I'm not one to panic and have been good with thinking long-term, but unless I shore up my pitching staff I'm sitting on the outside looking in this year. (I lost last year's championship in a tie breaker). Thinking aloud now, but my best bet might be to try and move a 3B and/or Ramos for pitching and keep Hosmer.

      The rest of my team:

      Jesus Montero
      Mark Teixeira
      Jose Altuve
      Brett Lawrie
      Emilio Bonifacio
      Carlos Beltran
      Shane Victorino
      Jeff Francoeur
      Eric Hosmer
      Wilson Ramos
      Miguel Cabrera
      Jay Bruce
      Ryan Zimmerman
      Jemile Weeks
      Carl Crawford
      Salvador Perez


      PS: I just got notice that Team B is trading Andre Ethier, Matt Moore, and Madison Bumgarner for Pujols. He's selling pitching to shore up first.

    • I like B, but if team A wants to win now, it's not too bad. I like B by a lot though

    • Id want to see the teams because if I needed pitching id go A but if I wanted a starting 1st baseman id go hosmer

    • Long term; Hosmer and Parker could be beasts. Team A might win this year, but team B wins long term.

    • How deep is the league?
