Hey guys i need some help. I am in a keeper league and my team is shit. On paper its awesome but stat wise = shit. Now the keepers in this league work out to be, 4 position players 1 has to be a OF. 2 SP, and 1 RP. Now the trade would be one of two, Arod for Longoria or Lincecum and Blalock for Longoria Should i do it. My roster is as follows,
C-Saltalamacchia 1st- Votto 2nd- Freddy Sanchez 3rd- Alex Rodriguez SS- Hanley Ramirez OF- Grady Sizemore OF- Carlos Quentin OF- Michael Cuddyer UTL- Alexi Ramirez UTL- Hank Blalock
SP- Jake Peavy SP- Tim Lincecum SP- Rich Harden Sp- Joba Chamberlain SP- Dontrelle Willis SP- Rick Porcello SP- Andrew Miller SP- Josh Outman SP- Hiroki Kuroda RP- Jonathan Papelbon RP- Kevin Gregg
I don't think you can spare Lincecum. we are still early in the season, I can't see how your team can be that far out of it.
Saying that I don't think you need to make a trade. Longoria is good.....but so is AROD although it doesn't seem like he will be stealing much this year.....but he has a real good supporting cast around him. I think it will be like trading an apple for an apple.
12 Team: 2nd year of Keeper:Head to Head C: Weiters 1B: Berkman 2B:Phillips SS:Scutaro 3B:A Rod OF:Kemp,Manny,Victorino UTL:Cuddyer BN:Helton,V Wells,Hafner SP:Beckett,Volquez,Romero,Floyd, Gallardo,Cook,Dempster,Hanson RP:Cordero,Street,Franklin, Howell
I echo Bo_Sox's thoughts. If you could keep Longoria that would be a whole other deal. I think Lincecum is a keeper for you and looks to be a pretty critical piece of your pitching right now. I'd sit tight.
You explain the keepers strangely, but I see that you could keep Longoria. But I see no reason to do it, really. ARod, Sizemore, and HanRam are your studs and they are not off to particularly good starts. Wait patiently for them to turn it around and you'll be fine. ARod for Longoria is fine in a keeper, but I think it's basically just moving parts this year....
