Hermida

Postby Trot Nixon » Mon Jul 11, 2005 4:12 pm

I'm in a dynasty league where we have 5 Minor League players, one of my players is Jeremy Hermida. A team is asking for him and offered up Mike Maroth for him, how good is this kid suppose to be??? I know he's a 5 tool player in AA but is he for real?

I have Myers, Oswalt, Smoltz, Zito, Maddux and Garland as my SP and we can only start 5 SP. Maroth would just be a guy to start if he had 2 starts in a week and such, is that worth giving up Hermida for him???

That offer is a joke. You'd be doing your team a disservice if you made that deal. Don't poison your pitching staff with Maroth and mortgage your future. Hermida is a bigtime prospect and should be one of your future regulars. Hold on to him.

Ok I really don't know Minor league values in dynasty leagues, I'm glad that topic popped up today actually. To me they're just a name on your bench that doesn't help out your team. I mean they might help you in 3 years but thats 3 years away. Anywhos, looking at his team, what player should I ask for in return for Hermida, trying to make a push right now and this owner really likes him.

His Roster

Mauer, Joe
Sexson, Richie
Spivey, Junior
Rodriguez, Alex
Morse, Mike
Hardy, J.J.
Giambi, Jason
Gonzalez, Luis E
Cameron, Mike
Jenkins, Geoff
Lee, Carlos
Colon, Bartolo
Jennings, Jason
Lieber, Jon
Lowe, Derek
Meche, Gil
Dempster, Ryan

Olivo, Miguel
Teahen, Mark
Byrd, Marlon
Patterson, Corey
Encarnacion, Juan
Maroth, Mike
Wells, David
Graves, Danny
Barmes, Clint
Koskie, Corey
Escobar, Alex
Brown, Kevin K.
Tsao, Chin-Hui
Benitez, Armando
Betancourt, Yuniesky
Cain, Matt
McGowan, Dustin

My team
Rodriguez, Ivan
Dunn, Adam
Burke, Chris
Mora, Melvin
Uribe, Juan
Scutaro, Marco
Mueller, Bill
Ramirez, Manny
Monroe, Craig
Huff, Aubrey
White, Rondell
Garland, Jon
Myers, Brett
Oswalt, Roy
Smoltz, John
Zito, Barry
Cordero, Chad

Lopez, Jose
Womack, Tony
Byrnes, Eric
Reed, Jeremy
Schneider, Brian
Greinke, Zack
Maddux, Greg
Shields, Scot
Soriano, Rafael
Gonzalez, Adrian
Hermida, Jeremy
Weaver, Jered
Lester, Jon

EDIT: What about like D-Lowe for Hermida or should I aim higher?

Higher... Hermeida's ceiling is way higher than alot of solid pitchers now, but Lowe is better than Maroth, who should probably be a free agent anyway. If you can get a guy that can definitely help you this year, I'd say go for it, but if not - keep Hermeida.

I would keep Hermida...the only pitcher I'd take for him from his team is Cain. So if you want immediate help, I would look elsewhere. But if you want a solid productive player in 3 years, stay put.
