    I can see that, but based on who is left on the board and what he should put up next season if healthy...I thought it wasn't much of a debate. Kind of hard to pick based on what if scenarios. What if Colorado trades Story and signs LeMahieu for 2-3 more years. He isn't really a long term piece on my team but a good option for next year imo.

    In what way? Tendi is going to contribute across all categories. Schwarber will hit more homeruns but I don't think that will be enough to give him more value.

    He isn't which is why I traded him to you in the first place but unless you think Schwarber is going to get CF eligibility, I don't really see the relevance in this context.

    I think he's suggesting that Schwarber is a more valuable OF (assuming catcher is totally off the books) than Benintendi going forward. He may well be, Schwarber's power potential might be better than Tendi's good-but-not-great all-around profile.

    I just like him in our format better. With wOBA, RC, SLG all cats it rewards power guys

    Yeah King.
    Maybe you should try to find something in the vein of 'Trump is stupid'
    I don't think anyone's really covered that ground yet.

    I really wanted Healy here. If someone wants to throw me some offers for these picks while I decide who I want please feel free.

    I didn't expect Ryon Healy to be so highly coveted, even here.

    It's starting to get to the slim pickings part of the draft out there.

    He doesn't project for a better wOBA despite the extra homeruns probably because he's a station to station guy and Tendi's all around skill set will generate plenty of extra bases. I don't really get why you like Schwarber so much. All his value is tied to his power. Tendi provides more paths to value and as such should have the much safer floor and you could also argue that he has the higher upside too.

    I agree Tendi has a much safer floor but I think Schwarber has the higher ceiling in our format. Also, the deal was not a straight up swap. I turned down Tendi for Schwarber + picks. We probably went back and forth with 8-13 counters before I felt I got enough value in the other assets.

    I had a surplus of old OF and I did not need Choo and had a surplus in the BP and non closer guys pop up every year. I got Anthony Swarzak in the FA pool last year. I feel I can replace them easier.
