In a keeper league (12 team roto, 5X5, straight draft, 8 total keepers with no limit on how long a player can be kept), we have not yet cut down to 8 keepers and have an offer for Johan Santana on the table. Here it is...
I get Johan Santana
I give up a 1st round pick (equates to a 9th rounder in a redraft league and I would still have one pick left in the 1st) and a 7th round pick (equates to a 15th rounder and same story that I still would have one pick in the 7th remaining) and Justin Verlander.
Our league allows picks to be traded and I have about an average of 2 picks per round for the first 12 rounds because I sucked last year and jumped ship.
My Top 7 keepers presently are Sizemore, Fielder, Markakis, Bay, Bruce, Tulo, and Liriano
My dilemma is that Santana would take the place of my 8th keeper (likely Verlander, Werth, Morrow, C Young (SD), or Jimenez) and I could draft someone like Greinke, Slowey, Lackey, Cueto, etc. with that extra first round pick.
Please let me know what you think... WHIR!!!
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.
