• Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

  • I am thinking that it might be a good idea for me to add another SS to my roster since Hanley is my SS and is always injured. I was looking today and he has something like 33 ABs in the past 30 days. I have gone without a back up for all that time. I have been lucky that it hasn't seemed to hurt me, but I don't know if I want to continue basically having no SS.

    I have two 3Bs - Arenado and A. Ramirez. I have been offered Alcides Escobar for Aramis Ramirez. Alcides is on his bench, and his 3B is Josh Harrison, so deal seems to make some sense for both.

    Would you make this trade? The only reason I am thinking it might not be a trade I want to do is because the team I would be trading with is one of the two teams I am in a close race with for 1st place. I almost feel like his team would be benefitting from the trade more than mine since Aramis is a fairly large upgrade over Harrison and Escobar for me would not even be used everyday on my team. I don't know if I really want to make a close competitor better. Maybe I am overthinking it. Thoughts?

    • I wouldn't, you're giving up value there. Escobar is nothing special (mostly SB). You could do better I think.

      • You are right, but the thing is there is nobody else out there to acquire. No other team has a decent excess SS. One team has Zobrist on the block and I have made an offer, but from what I have heard from others, the asking price for Zobrist is likely going to be higher than I would be willing to pay.

        Not much available on the FA, either. Danny Santana, is out there, and I was really hoping he would return from his injury and produce at a rate that would actually be rosterable, but has simply been disappointing. Stephen Drew, would seem to be the best pickup. However, I am not sure I can afford to drop an SP this week or next week, based on the matchups I am facing. Aramis is easily the most expendable player on my roster right now...
