Team and league info in sig! Looking to upgrade at 3B!
I offered Sandoval and Weaver for Wright and Hellickson (he isn't keeping Hellickson, but I would if this trade went through)
He countered and asked for Rizzo and Weaver for Wright and Hellickson because he could use a 1B. But he didn't reject my offer.
I am a Cubs fan and would like to keep Rizzo, but would you take this deal? I would prefer do to the one I proposed but was looking for opinions, Thanks! WHIR

I would do it pretty much without hesitation and you cant have Posey at your 1B in a 12-team 1 catcher league. Having Sandoval at CI is a good thing, makes 3B a little thin in a 12-teamer, but I try to package Perez with someone for an upgrade. I like Hanley and Tulo for major bouncebacks this year, any shot to deal Perez or even Posey and Ackley for one of them?

Sandoval >> Rizzo, not even close. .303 career hitter with a .490 SLG in the majors. Rizzo is a career .303 hitter with a .542 SLG in the minors.

Now, if you could make the deal offering Salvador Perez instead of Rizzo, then it's even more obvious.

Since 1995: 12-team 4x4 Roto auction keeper, NL-only. Likely keepers:
C: Mesoraco, xx
1/3: Lamb, Rendon, xx
2/S: Tulo, Alcantara, Segura
O/U: Yelich, Harper, xx, xx, xx, xx
SP: Hahn, Morton, xx, xx, xx
RP: Rondon, Clippard, Mejia, Fujikawa, xx
Min: Bryant, JP Crawford, Piscotty

No way would I break up the B.Posey/S.Perez duo, that's two top catchers. I'd try to trade Granderson, if possible. He has the most downside risk, and you already have two 1st rounders in Trout and CarGo. Sandoval for me is a wildcard, his weight is always an issue. When he eats more he hits less. And now he's had an offseason hospital stay with digestive issues. He's got a lot of associated risk right now. It's a keeper league, hang onto talent like Rizzo, his upside is worth it right now.
