Dynasty League trade proposal- Marrero or C. Gonzalez?

Postby brewcrewreview.com » Thu Feb 14, 2008 3:09 pm

I'm in a 14 team Dynasty league with 12 player minor league system. I need a young outfielder and I have Marrero but he has been switched to 1B.

Would you make this deal?

I give
Chris Marrero 1B Nationals
Jarrod Parker RHP D-Backs
Tim Alderson RHP Giants

I get
Carlos Gonzalez OF A's
Brad Lidge CL Phillies
Jake McGeary LHP Nationals

I think you're giving up a lot of potential in this deal. Gonzalez is better than Marrero, but I don't like the prospect of McGreary and Lidge being as productive as what you're giving up.

I'm also not sold on Gonzalez being better than Marrero in the future.

I think Gonzalez will be like this:

.280 25 hrs 90 rbi 15 sb

I think C. Marrero will be like this:

.270 35 hrs 100 rbi 2 sb

The only reason I'm considering it is that I have Pujols at 1B and that's where Marrero will play in the future, and that fact that closers are valuable in this 14 team league, therefore having Lidge now might be better than chancing the fact that either Jarrod Parker or Tim Alderson (both drafted out of H.S.) might be a future ace in 5 years.

I rejected that trade offer, and he countered with this:

I get
OF Cameron Maybin (really like him more than C. Gonzalez)
CL Brad Lidge
OF Nick Weglarz Indians

I give
3B Andy LaRoche
1B Chris Marrero
RHP Jarrod Parker
RHP Tim Alderson

I feel Cameron Maybin is the best player in the deal and at a position that I have need, so I'm considering this deal.

FYI
My 1B are Pujols and Overbay (start 1)
My OF are Victorino, Cust, Hall, B Giles and Nady. (start 4....yuck!)

I don't like any of these deals for you. I think you are worrying about something you shouldn't worry about yet. Marrero is still a year or so away at least and he is currently blocked at 1st base with Nick Johnson and Young. Marrero also isn't at his highest value yet so I think you would be fine waiting. He could end up back in the OF or traded or become the #1 prospect and you could pull in a lot more. I also like Parker on your team. Maybin is nice but I think you are giving up to much.

I wouldn't do either deal as you're mortgaging your farm a bit.
