My league is upset about the following trade

Postby Hinjoo » Fri Mar 04, 2005 9:57 pm

But we're all longtime friends with old rivalries and biases that date back to past baseball seasons. Here's the scenario. Please let me know what you guys think.

It's a measly 8 team league, and we get three keepers apiece. Because one guy from last year isn't participating this year, his team was dissolved and his players thrown into the draft. What this really means is that Manny Ramirez is going to be available on draft day. But otherwise, assume that the top 24 players in the league are spoken for before draft day.

So, one guy traded A-rod and his first round pick (#5 overall) for Gary Sheffield and the #1 overall pick, which is certainly going to be Manny. The main question is this:

A-rod is immensely valuable. Sheff is good, but far worse (and older and slower and more injury prone) than A-rod. Does the difference between Manny Ramirez and whoever might get drafted 5th (which is the 29th overall pick since we have three rounds of keepers)?

I'm looking for some objective feedback to bring back to my leaguemates. Thanks.
