Machado or Stanton

Recommended Posts

In a keep forever league that counts OBP and SLG on top on the normal 5 offensive categories?

I have Stanton currently and was offered Machado straight up. Normally you would jump all over this, especially since Stanton is 2.5 years older than Machado. But remember the extra categories are OBP and SLG, which favors Stanton. If Machado ends up on the Yankees, Phillies, or even ChiSox, he will retain his value (if not go up). If he ends up on the Padres, his stock goes down pretty significantly.

What are your thoughts? Thanks

I would take this deal. Machado > Stanton for me in a keep forever, even considering the added categories.

I think for 2019 only, Stanton is going to have the better year, but I think overall value, age, position, injury history etc.  Machado would be ranked higher for me if I were taking the long view.

Because of age, I would tend to lean with Machado. Even if Machado goes to San Diego, sounds like he will soon have some help

I get to keep 6

Gary Sanchez

Jose Ramirez

Corey Seager

Giancarlo Stanton

Aaron Judge

Gerrit Cole

(odd man out: Tommy Pham)

I was offered Machado straight up for Stanton but he also said I could get get Machado and Verlander for Stanton and my 2rd round pick (8th round value) but I would need to throw Gary Sanchez back into the pool and hope he's there for my 1st round (7th round value) pick (5th pick of the overall draft).

I would stick with Stanton, flaws and all.  If Machado signs with the Padres (no idea why he is even considering it), then his value will take a hit.  Forget Verlander.  I would look to lose Sanchez and trade up somehow to replace him.  He is a complete gamble at this point.
