    Safer option: Goldschmidt or McCutchen?

    I don't see how you don't go with Goldschmidt after the season he had. He is an animal. 1B is also a less risky position with fewer injuries so injury wise I think Goldschmidt is safer, production wise I think they are both safe. I don't see either one have an off year.

    Jose Reyes Vs Jean Segura

    Reyes for sure. Segura tailed off last year. When both are healthy Reyes has way more potential.

  • I am open to moving Matt Moore, I am thinking about offering up Matt Moore, John Lackey, and possibly Jason Castro/Colby Rasmus/Khris Davis (1) for Xander Bogaerts, Victor Martinez, and possibly Christian Yelich

    I could really use some infield depth and I really like Xander. I don't see any way he doesn't end up in the top 10 most productive SS this season. Martinez is .300 hitter, 100 RBI guy with 10 HR. I like Yelich more than Davis.

    Two questions. What do you think of my team (12 team league), and also, thoughts on the trade. Do I have enough pitching depth to make that kind of move? I know my pitching is weaker than my offense but we don't have a limit on roster moves so I can pitch & ditch all year. Pitchers also tend to come out of nowhere and I'm quick to jump on them. I drafted accordingly with this strategy in mind.

    My team is as follows
    C- Salvador Perez
    1B- Eris Hosmer
    2B - Brett Lawrie
    SS- Jose Reyes
    3B - David Wright
    OF - Ryan Bruan
    OF - Jose Bautista
    OF - Yoenis Cespedes
    UTIL - Desmond Jennings
    UTIL - Chase Headley
    BENCH - Khris Davis
    BENCH - Colby Rasmus
    BENCH - Jason Castro

    SP - Mat Latos
    SP - Matt Moore
    RP - Grant Balfour
    RP - Steve Cishek
    SP - Jered Weaver
    SP - Clay Buchholz
    SP - Patrick Corbin
    SP - Zack Wheeler
    SP - John Lackey
    SP - Taijuan Walker
