    Considering a Trade

    Was offered a trade one of my leagues.

    Giving up
    - Justin Verlander

    Receiving
    -Pablo Sandoval
    -Billy Butler
    -Ricky Romero

    Any suggestions as to what to do would be greatly appreciated.

    • Personally, I think there's alot more merit for doing the trade than people are giving credit. That is alot of talent to get back for one guy. Before he was injured, Sandoval was a top 25 fantasy player. Butler has always been very good and having a career year and you need an upgrade over Ike Davis (he's turning it around but he's been atrocious most of the year). I'd also want a consistent player at 3rd over inconsistent Plouffe (he may not stay on his hot streak). Romero's career numbers show he should improve somewhat in the second half (though his K/9 is still decent and 8 wins not too shabby at all). Easy choice on who to drop: Mayberry and Moss. Your pitching staff is already pretty well stocked on high K guys so you wouldn't take too big a hit on that. Just my opinion, I think I might do that trade.

    • dont ever give up verlander!

    • One must also consider how much roster room you have to fill the two extra spots you must create. Who will you dump? Are they worthy of keeping, or just throw -ins? Do you have other on-staff pitchers that will be enough to accumulate the K's 'cuz as good as Ricky is, the K's are not his forte , but he will win a few for you. Also Pablo and Billy are coming 'round. The key is knowing where you need most help at the All Star mark. For me, guys like Verlander don't come up everyday and usually there is someone on the wire to fill a gap, but true power hitters are no longer on the wire at this time in the season and no Trouts or Harpers on the horizon either. So assess your need, see what's out there .... I would keep Justin myself. :)

    • I'd keep verlander

    • Keep the K's

    • Is it H2H or Rotisserie?

    • A- Do you need a 1b or 3b? Who are your current ones?

      B - What two players get dropped?

      C - What does losing Verlander mean to your pitching staff, who else you got there?
