Crawford+ for King Felix+ ?

Postby joshzam » Mon Feb 21, 2011 10:08 pm

I would receive:
Ángel Pagán, Jay Bruce, and Félix Hernández

I'd have to deal:
Carl Crawford, Curtis Granderson, and Madison Bumgarner

Here's my current roster in a Yahoo H2H keeper (scoring tons-o-stats, including OBP, SLG, holds, and WHIP):
Mike Napoli
Adrián González
Brandon Phillips
Adrián Béltre
Stephen Drew
Carl Crawford
Curtis Granderson
Michael Cuddyer
Álex Ríos
Derrek Lee

Ricky Nolasco
Roy Oswalt
Ryan Franklin
Jonny Venters
Daniel Bard
Mike Adams
Luke Gregerson
Bobby Jenks
Edwin Jackson
Rick Porcello
Madison Bumgarner
Bronson Arroyo
Ian Kennedy
R.A. Dickey
Josh Beckett

My offense is currently much stronger than my pitching, so not only would I be nabbing King Felix to anchor my rotation, but I'd be able to finally replace Cuddyer with Bruce in RF (my weakest offensive position). Am I nuts to deal Crawford?

As much as I love Crawford, I'd pull the trigger on this one.

Pagan will replace 30 of the steals while putting up + AVG and also chip in 10 HRs or so.

Crawford is on the wrong side of 30 while Bruce is a 23 year old kid about to turn into a BEAST and you need a no doubter SP like Felix. Especially in a keeper league...he's only 24... good god. Do the trade.

Thanks for the advice. I guess I don't think of Crawford as being on the wrong side of 30... but he is! :-)

I am ok with this trade. Usually I feel if you are trading a first round type player you should get something similar in return but I like Bruce and Felix is a stud pitcher.

Bruce will replace Crawford's power (prolly give you more), Pagan will help the lose of his speed, and King Felix you need in a bad bad way. I would do this deal.

I prefer Felix over Crawford and Bruce over Bumgarner. Easy choice for me. Felix and Bruce. ;-D
