Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I have been offered the following trade in a 12 man H2H Dynasty League...what would you do? I have a lack of depth at OF, i know Myers will start out at Durham this year.
GIVE-courtney hawkins and gerrit cole
my OF-choo, hart, prado, hunter
You need OF help for sure but that's a pretty steep price. Cole is nasty and basically big league ready. Hawkins is ways off but he should develop into an even better prospect than Myers is/was
You can build your outfield through the FA pool.
Wil Myers is useless as an oufielder. He steals no bases and strikes out a ton. Myers only held value as a catcher.
I drafted Myers this season and dropped him once it was announced that he was losing his catcher eligibility.

If he is so useless as an outfielder then why is he unanimously a top 5 prospect on just about every prospect list out there? Sure, he won't steal a whole lot of bases, and he strikes out quite a bit. He also walks a lot, hit .303 in his minor league career with an OBP of .395. Meaning, he's on base a lot, so the strikeouts are meaningless. He also hit 37 bombs at AA and AAA last year, meaning his power potential is solid. Sure, Myers held more value as a catcher, but still has enormous potential as an outfielder. I'm not saying he's going to be a stud right out of the gates but he is one of the best prospects you could possibly have in a dynasty league right now.
As for the trade, it's hard for me to say. I am a huge fan of Gerrit Coles and I try to own him in every deep keeper/dynasty league that I'm in. Having said that, your outfield is in dire need of youth and skill. Prado is more valuable as an infielder IMO so he shouldnt even count on that list, Choo is a solid 20/20 guy but overall I think Myers helps your team more than Cole does. Unless you really need young pitching, I would take that trade, take Myers.
