    Butler for Pablo ?

    i have billy butler whose been doing just great for me at 1b...my opponent this week has 4 on the DL (3 BN 1 DL) and pablo is one of them. i was thinking of proposing a 1 for 1.

    i see hes about 3 weeks away and being a Giants fan since birth i want him for that home team player. my other 1b option would be kendrys morales and posey (i don't have a back up catcher though...)

    currently in 1st of 12 so maybe i should just keep the team i got here with..womp womp

    opinions ?

    • Are you trying to get all the SF Giants or are you trying to win...I'm a die hard Phillies fan and the only ones I have are Hamels & Ruiz (Ruiz a FA pick up because he's tearing the cover off the ball). So should I trade Miggy for Howard when he comes back? Umm...no.

    • pther then being a fan there is no reason to do the trade. They r both so much alike its a total push I think. Keeping Posey at catcher is a huge advantage every week. I would stand pat

    • Being a giants fan i know how it is lol i have pagan melky and pablo...butler is solid tho and posey is killing so dont give him up. Unless you need pablos 3rd base id stay put...for now.

        again ,i do the heavy pitching staff style and so far im in 1st of 12 and 2nd place is 2.5 gms back ( who is my opponent this week that im 9-0 currently) and 3rd place is 8 gms back and so on and so forth

    • Butler is killing it so far and i feel that the power is here to stay, he has always hit for a high ave. Butler and Sandoval couldnt be more alike but for now Id hold onto Butler. However if u can get Posey Id do that. A catcher that puts up those kind of numbers will win u a few weeks during the season. Or did i misunderstand and u already have Posey?
