I say no way Jose. Everything I'm reading about Heyward is that he is going to be dynamite. I owned Sanchez last year, and I don't think its worth it. Too many walks and not enough long outings. I'd ride out Heyward, hope he comes up hot, and maybe try to sell high on him. I think Heyward's got the kind of ceiling that can help you win a league, while Sanchez does not.

I say no as well. Your SP looks fine. You need Heyward more.

I made a counter offer. Heyward and Asdubal Cabrera for Sanchez and Zobrist.

I doubt he bites on that.

Just in my opinion, I think Zobrist & Sanchez are both pretty overrated

I'm a little weak in the MI, and Sanchez has good K/9 numbers, which is a scoring category. And I'm a huge Zobrist fan. picked him up for every team i had except 1 last year, in ST.

It's the prophet in me.

I'm just hoping Alcides Escobar is this year's Zobrist.

I cancelled the trade. It was too much, and Cabrera might OPS .850 this year. Zobrist might be a marginal upgrade, but not enough.

I like Assdribble Cabrera but .850 OPS is a lot to ask. I have him in a keeper league and I'm hoping for a repeat of last season with a few more swipes. I think keeping Heyward is a good idea.

The indians are bumping him up to leadoff. he might walk a bit more there than he did in the #2 hole. he was right at .799, so 3-4 more HR's and 10+ BB's might get him to .850

Well, for our sake, I hope he does it!
