Hopefully it's not the 10-15k that Bateman will drop
With regard to this, it was actually Carty to Bateman. I knew the dollars was an issue, and I spent more time on this than I care to admit but it came down to:
1. The trade is obviously good on its merits, a maxed out spud to an elite keeper = no brainer.
2. Points this round. Yes Carty scores points this round but I was looking at it thinking, Bateman has an average of 58 starting in the forward and 63 if you take out his injury game, and as a non-owner deathriding him, I know he always finds a way to put a score on no matter the situation. Compare to Carty off the bench (assuming it stays that way) would generally go for mid to high 20's. So a decent points bump.
3. $. This was the concern, but if I was right about the previous point the net loss of $ is around 15k which I'm fine with.
4. It saves a trade for next week (I mean one trade I don't have to make next week)
