Wondering what the opinions are on a Hanley for CarGo trade? My OF is weak and needs help I have Dee Gordon who I am currently using as a Util and Zach Cozart is available as a FA.
My thoughts are if I accept this trade drop Martinez and go with Dee Gordon as my starter and have Cozart as my backup. The biggest downside I see is Hanley will be 3B eligible soon and it would be nice to have him available to play third if/when Youk goes down and if Lawrie struggles. Been mulling over this trade all day.
Also would you drop JD Mart to pick up Cozart or a P? Dropping JD Mart leaves me with no backup OF.
In a 12 team league my roster is
C Wilson Ramos 1B Kevin Youkilis 2B Robinson Cano 3B Brett Lawrie SS Hanley Ramirez OF Giancarlo Stanton OF Kendrys Morales OF Andre Ethier Util Ike Davis Util Dee Gordon Bench Adam Dunn Bench J.D. Martinez
SP Cole Hamels SP Josh Johnson RP Heath Bell RP Rafael Betancourt P Sean Marshall P Hiroki Kuroda P Doug Fister P Adam Wainwright BN Jhoulys Chacin BN Trevor Cahill BN Phil Hughes
I like a back up OF. He fills in for 3 positions in your lineup. I would not trade Ram for G. G has an injury history (Ram is at 3B and less likely to get hurt now). Also, not gaining in getting Gon. He and Ram project to do about the same. Trade one of your extra 1Bs for an OF. Dunn is probably a hot item after his HR and publicity. .
