Rank these players!!! WHIR

Postby galante22 » Tue Feb 22, 2011 4:04 pm

standard 5x5 league h2h, can keep 5 players for 3 years

right now my keepers are

youk
tulo
arod
cargo
ubaldo

with me putting cain victorino and werth back into the draft.

option 1: i can deal victorino and cain for hamels and keep him over youk
option 2: i can deal victorino and cain for hamels then deal youk and hamels for adrian gonzalez
option 3: i can deal victorino and cain for hamels then deal youk and hamels for tim lincecum(possibly)
option 4: keep youk

option 3 is what i want but he might not be willing to trade lincecum, if i can tget lincecum what should i go for?

Option 2 is best if you're certain you can pull it off. Going from Youk to Gonzo is a nice upgrade for your keepers.

The second option is definitely the best. I am starting to get worried about Lincecum, watching him pitch last year, he seemed tired at times. Even though he was dominant at the end of the year and the playoffs, I worry about the workload his body has taken. To me, trading Youk for Lincecum isn't a slam dunk it used to be.

I very much like this.

So - this trade is based on guys you'd be putting back into the draft otherwise? If not, I might stand pat, but if you're basically giving up youk and some guys you can't keep anyways, then option 2 is the slam dunk choice here.


thanks for the input on mine.
