My Freese/Zobrist/Goldschmidt OR Rizzo for his Cruz AND???

Postby garretterik » Wed Jun 27, 2012 1:44 am

Standard Yahoo 5x5 12 team ROTO REDRAFT league
I am in 2nd. Need help in all pitching categories other than wins (especially WHIP)
The other guy has OF and RP to give

1. Who do I trade away Goldie or Rizzo? I am thinking Rizzo?
2. Which pitcher of his do I target? Betancourt, RSoriano, JSantana, or JJohnson? I don't know if he gives up Soriano or Johnson, but don't know if I get enough with JJohnson or Betancourt.


With this trade I lose depth, improve my OF and pick up an arm. (Also the ww has some good options too). Hellickson, Oswalt, Carpenter types. I would lose Freeze and either Goldie or Rizzo from my starting line up but get either Goldie or Rizzo and Cruz into lineup + add two arms. (RSoriano +Oswalt)

My team:
C Yadier Molina (StL - C)
1B Pablo Sandoval (SF - 1B,3B)
2B Omar Infante (Mai-2B)
3B David Freese (StL - 3B)
SS Hanley Ramirez (Mia - SS, 3B)
OF Jay Bruce (Cin - OF)
OF Michael Bourn (Atl - OF)
OF Yoenis Cespedes (Oak - OF)
Util Paul Goldsmith (Ari-1B)
Util Will Middlebrooks (BOS-3B)
BN Tony Rizzo (ChC-1B)
BN Ben Zobrist (TB - 2B,OF)
BN Troy Tulowitzki (Col - SS)DL
DL Bret Gardner NYY-OF)DL
Pitchers
SP CC Sabathia (NYY - SP)
SP Jake Peavy (CWS-SP)
RP Addison Reed (CWS - RP)
RP John Axford (MIl-RP)
P Madison Bumgarner (SF - SP)
P Ryan Cook (Oak-RP)
P Johnny Cueto (Cin - SP)
BN AJ Burnett (Pit-SP)
BN Tom Wilhemsen (Sea-RP)
BN Trevor Bauer (Ari-SP)

1. That's a tough call, but I think Rizzo would get you a much higher return, as his value will probably not be this high again for a significant amount of time. Potentially if it is a keeper league, but if it's a redraft, I would go with trading Rizzo.
2. Is it Josh or Jim Johnson? I probably would target either of the Johnsons, then Betancourt/Soriano, then Santana, but that's just my opinion. I don't believe that the Mets staff keep up their current pace.

I'd trade Rizzo and be happy with getting Johnson or Santana

OK I trade Zobrist and Freese from my bench, and Rizzo from my Util. I get back Cruz for the utility spot and Josh Johnson (Mai-SP) and pick up either Matt Harrison, Lirriano,Jiminez, Parker, Oswalt, Helickson, Quintana, or even Carpenter if I want to stash him (SP), Benoit, Burton/Perkins, Parnell (RP), Alvarez, Crisp, Nelson, Berry, Revere, Smith, or Moss (if I want a bat)
I think this is a good deal for me. Since I think Cruz out produces Rizzo and I gain a solid pitcher and have a spot to play with.
What do you think?

I make the trade. I think Rizzo is a middle of the road first baseman down the line and worse than that this year. You lose a little depth but I'm always a fan when you get the best player in the deal. It is a win to replace Freese with Cruz.

I'd take Josh Johnson and hope he regains his form. Also like Soriano but he already lost his job once this year. Sounds like some pretty solid options on FA wire. I'd play the matchups with your free spot and pick up guys with favorable matchups. (I wouldn't stash Carpenter at this point because I don't think he pitches this year)

I'd appreciate some advice on my Prado/Weaver trade

I agree, I think this trade works for your side. I like the idea of acquiring Cruz and Josh Johnson and then keeping that other spot open to either play the hot hand with FA hitters or streaming SPs. The versatility here should give you a nice amount of lineup flexibility and thats always a good thing in my mind. Take the deal and good luck.
