Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I get Reyes, J Weaver, and Youk
I give up Andrus, Pablo Sandoval, and David Price
I need a first baseman bad...and I already have Miggy at third......thats why I like Youk.....should I do it....Reyes is an awesome upgrade at SS
plenty of 1B guys out there... Just shop the waiver until you get a breakout guy - it happens every yr. I got Allen Craig in 13th rd of 16t dynasty last yr.
Try Yonder (fences in), Smoak (team a little better, fences in I believe), Moreland (solid Minor #s and looked good past couple yrs when given chance), Morrison (very hyped prospect has 'chance' to rebound).... prob 15 guys out there if you are in 12t or smaller.
I don't believe you can evaulate this so simply as to say Reyes is better than Andrus and Price better than Weaver and call that even. Yes Reyes is better, but only as long as he's healthy. He's not playing on turf, much harder on his wheels than grass and increases the chances he gets injured. Andrus has little power but I don't think he will be so far behind to make the huge gap between Price and Weaver disappear. Weaver is in decline if you belive the numbers. Youk is a warm body and while Pablo is a beffet clearing fool, he's still got many more miles than Youk does. I think you lose this deal.
Who do you have at 1st now? This trade is bad for you.
Price is better than Weaver and Reyes is better than Andrus. That makes this part of the trade essentially a push. Therefore, the trade is essentially Sandoval vs. Youk. I'd take Sandoval anytime. You have to be really desperate for a 1st baseman. In fact, if you play Youk at this point in his career, it may hurt AVG and OPS (if you use it) so much that it would be better to leave 1B empty.
