advice on a trade proposal

Postby thekonaman » Mon Apr 13, 2009 8:05 pm

I am in a 10 team Keeper League

My Team is below - I have been offered Travis Snider for Brian Roberts . What do you guys think ? My team is definitely in a rebuilding stage and has no shot at winning or coming close but I think Roberts could be a debatable keeper for the next 1-2 years - Is it worth the risk with Snider's upside and being the Longoria of this year?

It's way too early in the year to make that move. You've got a lot of other guys who could break out as well, especially in your OF already, so why not wait and see if they do rather than trading a proven commodity right now? Who knows how long it will take Snider to become an automatic keeper - you may actually prolong your rebuilding by giving up one of your best trading chips now.

You didn't list your pitchers - are they the reason why you think you have no shot of competing this year? Your offense looks decent when A-Rod comes back in a few weeks.

i agree, i would wait, as i think you could get much more than that in return for roberts. to me he's clearly a top 40 player. I'm a big snider fan, but he's just not worth as much as a roberts even in a keeper format.

mind helping with mine?
