Do I make this trade?

Postby kentx12 » Sun Feb 13, 2011 9:42 pm

I am in a 12 team league where we get to keep 4 hitters. My keepers are Howard, Wright, Arod and Weeks. Should I move Arod, Weeks and Liriano who I am not keeping for Utley and M. Holliday? I appreciate your thoughts.

If you weren't going to keep Liriano already, I would do this trade

I like the deal for you. Utley is an upgrade over Weeks, and I think Holliday and A-Rod essentially push. Liriano is a non-factor since he wasn't a keeper for you anyways.

Yes, do this trade. Selling high on Weeks is the right thing to do. ;-D

Please help with mine?

I like Wright! Your other keepers scare me in the following order (least to most): Arod, Weeks, Howard.

I would definitely make the deal if you are looking for less risk with your keepers.

Wright = Awesome
Utley > Weeks (both have some risk, but the odds of Weeks staying healthy and outperforming Utley is not something I would bet on)
Holliday > Arod (comparable players, less risk with Holliday, plus you already have a 3B)
Howard = Scares me A LOT :-o

That is a very easy YES. Take it and don't look back. Utley and Holliday are both better value than any single player you are giving up.
