    d'Arnaud,Matt Moore and Huston Street for Encarnancion and Bailey

    This is a dynasty league and we are in the middle of a offline draft via message board.
    Rosario is my catcher and I think I can pick up Rob Brantley for my backup if I trade d'arnaud.
    I only have Street and Clippard for my RP cause there are a lot of closers to pick up during the season and I am very active but the trade was sent to me with a message that said

    Realistically, you can throw saves because you only have one closer, you can just get a lot of set-up men and do well in RAPP.

    The real problem here is that i dont have a 1B cause I had Teixera(before he got injured) and I dont have a backup. The best 1B that was not drafted when he got injured was Lance Berkman and I just couldnt make myself waste a pick on him.

    my starting pitchers are King Felix,Price,Moore,Peavy,Kuroda,Minor,Taijuan Walker and Wily Peralta.

    • Is that Homer or Andrew Bailey? How deep is the league?

      Living in Las Vegas and seeing D'Arnaud play every day I have to say I'm not impressed. Don't be fooled by the numbers, everyone mashes here. Adam Loewen hit .350 with 25 HR one year.

      I think moving D'arnaud and Moore for Edwin might benefit you, but I'm not sure I'd do this deal.

      You are probably better off swapping Kuroda or Peavy for and older 1B like Ortiz, Howard, Konerko or Laroche.

      Considering this looks to be very late in the draft, taking Berkman could be a good move for you. He's in a great lineup and hitter's park. You could play him for 2 months until Tex gets back. He's in a situation where he should build up trade value and then you can trade him before he loses it. There's risk but you are also giving up next to nothing to get him.

        I guess i will trade for a 1B

    • I think it depends on where you are currently in your league. If you're a contender, then I would do this deal as Edwin is solid bat to have but if you're not a contender then I wouldn't because d"Arnaud and Moore have future upside that I wouldn't part ways with for Edwin. Sure Bailey is good but I know if it justifies giving up Moore and not to mention Street who is a solid closer to have. I will say though, if you plan on throwing saves maybe this is a good deal.
