Now what do I do?

Postby Surfs up » Mon Feb 07, 2011 11:35 am

I have been trying to get either Felix or Wainwright but with no luck.Well I did have a counter offer on Wainwright. I was offering Bautista and Liiraino for Wainwright. I can't keep both.
He countered with Wainwright and my 3 rd pick for Liriano and his 4th rd pick.
My keepers are:
Albert
Cabrera
Utley
Cruz
Hanley
and either Bautista or liriano . I do have the 3rd and 12th overall picks in this draft. These are the top players avalible
Braun,Tulo,Hamilton, Tex, Kemp. Arod, Lincecum, Lester and Verlander.
I am leaning toward staying pat and keeping Bautista with my sixth player. Grabbing either Braun or Tulo of course if there with my first pick. but going with Tex over Hamilton or others . Then with my second first rd pick taking Lester or Verlander . Going after pitching starting ther third or fourth rd.
Do i make that trade for wainwright or stay pat. What would you do?

Agreed too many quality options with that 3rd pick to give it up. Counter.

I just reread my post because of your replies. I messed it up. I meant to say the other GM has offered me his 4 th round pick and Wainwright for my 3 rd round pick and Liriano. I also checked the draft order and I would only lose two spots from the third round to his pick in the fourth round. If I did this trade I would have to drop Bautista or Cruz . Unless I can trade one of them before we freeze rosters at six keepers in two weeks.
I would NOT be giving up my first round pick ( 3rd over all ) Sorry if i confused you.

I would do that trade. Love Wainwright more than Liriano.

So your keepers would become:

Albert
Cabrera
Utley
Cruz
Hanley
Wainwright

Very nice set of keepers.

He has just written me again asking me about doing that trade. I think if we make the deal I could trade Bautista easier than Liriano.
Who would you take with the first pick if Tulo and Braun are gone?
Arod, Kemp. Tex , Hamilton and Lincecum would be the next top five players.With Lester and Verlander, Billingsley .

What would you trade Bautista for? more picks?

Between those players, I think Kemp or Hamilton is your best option unless you have 2 util spots or play CI. You have Pujols at 1st, Cabrera at Util, Hanley at SS, Utley at 2B which doesn't leave you room to play Tex. Not a fan of ARod but if there is no 3B left then he is a good option to fill out your roster. Linc would be a great add to give you 2 aces on one staff. If it was me, I might take Linc or gamble a little with Hamilton.

Sorry i didn't give you all the information about the postions. yes we do have two CI and two MI plus we have a UTL spot that can be any postion. We hit 15 and pitch 10 with no bench .
I did make the deal for Liriano my 4th round pick ( 36 pick over all ) for Wainwright and ( 38 pick overall )I think I did well. Yes I would trade Bautista for picks. I have him offered with my 9 th pick for the other GM's 3 round pick.
