Paul Goldschmidt – After a slow start to the season, Goldschmidt has gone on a tear of late, getting a hit in 14 straight games and adding five home runs to his stat sheet in the process. The problem is that overall Goldy has been a bit fortunate in terms of his .360 BABIP. That being said, the power numbers should continue to hold strong, as that part of his game has been prominent throughout his career. Now is a good time to sell high, as his AVG should fall a bit, but if you could use the power, he’s worth holding onto.
Is it a good time to buy on Cano? The guy's asking price is a 3B and pitcher (it's a lot, but I'm gonna try to get a closer thrown in as well). My 2B options are Altuve and Aviles. My 3B options are Beltre, Bautista, Lawrie, and Aviles qualifies as well. It's a keeper league. Beltre is 2nd round, Lawrie is 17th. That alone has me thinking I should put forth Beltre (and I know he likes Beltre). I like the .300 avg and power Beltre brings. I like the speed Lawrie brings (and I am hurting in steals) and decent power. As far as pitchers go, I refuse to trade Lee, Wilson (15th rd), Beachy (16th rd), or Sale (18th rd). That leaves Peavy, Parker, Worley, Moore, Lynn. Keeper value aside, I love what Peavy is doing but I wonder how much longer before he breaks down. Moore has stuff and I'd like to see what more he can do. Parker I like, and in Oakland even more. Worley he wont go for. Lance Lynn is my question mark. I keep thinking he's gonna just fall off, but he doesnt. How would you rank them in order of including them in a deal?
