trea turner for polanco/gurriel whir


Recommended Posts

normally wouldn't consider trading Trea but in a shortened season, i'm feeling like I have less time to wait. Drafted Trea as my speed guy and he's not running and he's not hitting. So thinking I punt on steals and snag two guys that currently have better average. Polanco hits in a great twins lineup. Do I take it or hold? I'm 0-1 after week 1. League details and my team below. Always whir w a link.

12 team head to head cats, teams are awarded 1 win/loss/tie each week based most cats won. 

runs, rbis, stolen bags, doubles, triples, average

wins, complete games, saves, k's, era, whip, innings pitched

3b- Moran

Selling low on a top pick is just locking in a loss in most cases imo.  You need a certain amount of luck to win a fantasy league.  If your round 1 or 2 pick flames out early, there is not much you can do other than wait it out and hope he comes around.  Trading him short and punting a category basically is just guaranteeing defeat imo.

This. It seems like a panic move to me. Selling low and watching him bounce back elsewhere would be worse. He has a .214 BABIP
