Trade thoughts plz. A lot of players on the move. WHIR

Postby Yankeesin05 » Fri Feb 25, 2011 4:23 am

It's a 14 team H2H dynasty league. We're in our 3rd year. We haven't done our 3 round draft yet, but myself and another manager have been going back and forth with trade proposals between our keepers. He needs a RF, and I have 3 of the best RF in the league and need a SP. Here is the trade I'm we pretty much at now. I would be getting the best player in the deal I think and a young soon-to-be stud pitcher, but also giving a lot. Can I get some thoughts on this? Leave your question and I'll help you out the best I can.

I'm trading:

Nelson Cruz
Kelly Johnson
Aramis Ramirez
Anibal Sanchez

for his:

Dustin Pedroia
Pablo Sandoval
Tommy Hanson

My team


C - Buster Posey (SF - C,1B)
1B - Albert Pujols (StL - 1B)
2B - Kelly Johnson (Ari - 2B)
3B - Aramis Ramirez (ChC - 3B)
SS - Stephen Drew (Ari - SS)
LF - Carl Crawford (Bos - LF)
CF - B.J. Upton (TB - CF)
RF - Shin-Soo Choo (Cle - RF)
Util - Jason Heyward (Atl - RF)
BN - Nelson Cruz (Tex - LF,RF)
BN - Freddie Freeman (Atl - 1B)


SP - Chad Billingsley (LAD - SP)
SP - Johnny Cueto (Cin - SP)
SP - Josh Johnson (Fla - SP)
SP - CC Sabathia (NYY - SP)
SP - Anibal Sanchez (Fla - SP)
RP - Daniel Bard (Bos - RP)
RP - Neftali Feliz (Tex - RP)
RP - Francisco Rodriguez (NYM - RP)
RP - Huston Street (Col - RP)
BN - Jeremy Hellickson (TB - SP,RP)
BN - Rick Porcello (Det - SP)

I'd take that trade. It's sort of a waste to have to sit one top 10 OF and Cruz is no sure thing to last the entire year. You upgrade nicely with Pedroia at 2nd and getting Tommy Hanson on the side is nice. Sandoval should rebound to do better than 2010, even if he doesn't quite repeat 2009 level.

I think the TWO best players in the trade are both coming your way. Cruz is overrated, and his body has proven it can't hold up with the way he plays.

I think Pedroia is going to be back all the way, and he's a shoe-in for 100 Runs, 10 HRs, 300. AVG and 15-20 SBs. And I love Hanson. Great pitcher (Although I prefer Cole Hamels to him--random tangent that I thought of because of another thread).

Kelly Johnson and Sanchez are waiver-wire fodder, and there's no guarantee A-Ram is going to bounce back in terms of average and/or health. You're giving a lot of question marks and getting solid pieces.

Do it.

You HAVE to take this trade. Cruz is the least valuable of the 3 RFs and you are getting a heck of a lot in return.
