Ottobot Ep 40: Buying, Selling Memorial Day Edition

Spa City Thoroughbreds 🐎 gives up...

Player NameSalary
Adrian Beltre FA Util R $20
AJ Reed CHW AAA 1B L $6
Has $23 free, will have $23 free

My pitch: Beltre is nearing a return, and he has similar value to Upton. Reed is going to win the Astro 1B job over Gurriel before long. I have depth at 3B, and Upton would be more valuable to me as an OFer. I think this gives you similar 2017 value, plus future value if Reed is as good as I think he will be. Salaries are a wash.

Slobberpuss gives up...

Player NameSalary
Justin Upton LAA OF R  $26
Has $36 free, will have $36 free

I'm sure Upton will go on one of his hot streaks shortly after I press accept but I like the potential of Reed.
