I've been offered a trade that I'm very tempted to accept. Would you take this, given my league format?
First, let me start out by stating that this is a 9-team total points league. I DO NOT CARE about WHIP, ERA, or BA. They are totally irrelevant in this league.
Points are determined by the following scoring system: Batters - R(1), 1B(1), 2B(2), 3B(3), HR(4), RBI(1), SB(1), BB(1), HBP(1) Pitchers - IP(1), W(10), CG(6), SO(10),SV(6), HLD(4), K(1),
I am currently in 4th place and the guy making the offer is in 2nd. Here is the trade: I get Jose Bautista, Joe Mauer, Ubaldo Jimenez and I give Alex Rodriguez, Carl Crawford, Stephen Strasburg.
Here are the points by each of these guys, first for the season, followed by the last month: Bautista - 347, 85 Mauer - 247, 68 Jimenez - 428, 93 ARod - 311, 94 Crawford - 389, 143 Strasburg - 134, 103
Here is my roster: C - Mike Napoli 1B - Aubrey Huff 2B - Howie Kendrick, Dustin Pedroia (DL) 3B - Álex Rodríguez SS - Jimmy Rollins OF - Carl Crawford, Adam Jones, Álex Ríos, Nick Markakis, Jason Bay, Andrew McCutchen SP - Tim Lincecum, Stephen Strasburg, Ryan Dempster, Josh Johnson, Ricky Romero, Joel Piñeiro, Clay Buchholz
Also, the following 3B are currently available: Aramis Ramírez, Chipper Jones, Gordon Beckham, Chase Headley, Miguel Tejada, Brandon Inge, José López
