I play in a 12 team roto 5x5 keeper league and have been offered the following deal. I currently hold the first pick in the draft and plan on taking Pujols but have a logjam at 1B. The way the keepers work is on a contract system. In Teixeira's case his contract is up at the end of the season and Cruz's is up at the end of the 2012 season. I'm looking to move Teixeira because if i draft Pujols I will have 4 players for 3 slots. New contracts are given out each season after the draft so by drafting Pujols, I will have him through the 2013 season and whoever i draft 2nd i would have through the 2012 season.
Trade My Mark Teixeira and Nelson Cruz for his 2nd overall pick
League Roster Spots C,1B,2B,3B,SS,MI,CI,OF,OF,OF,OF,UTIL,SP,SP,SP,RP,RP,RP,P
Keepers (year contract expires) Teixeira (2010) Fielder (2010) Uggla (2010) Hamilton (2010) Rios (2010) D. Ortiz (2010) Jurrjens (2010) Harang (2011) Billingsley (2011) JJ Hardy (2011) N. Cruz (2012)
I'm not sure what i should do with this trade. I feel like the 2nd pick would greatly improve my team as the next top players available are Arod, Longoria, Greinke, Felix, Wright, and Crawford. But i'm not sure giving up Tex and Cruz will be worth it. Let me know what you think and leave a link and i'll help you out too.
