Tulo Trade

Postby Acholder » Wed Mar 02, 2011 1:23 am

Im in a 12 Team Points H2H league 8 player keeper league. I won last year and have a good team with a maybe my last keeper in question but was seeked that someone had interest in Tulo.

The team seeking him finished dead 12 of 12 last year and I won the league. He has 3 1st Round picks after the 8 keepers (The 1st overall 3rd overall and 7th overall). He picks first in every round and also has extra picks in the 3rd 4th and 5th rounds on top of his own.I pick last in every round because I won. What would you ask for a Tulo type player. Also trading Tulo allows me to keep Elvis Andrus I guy I like for the years to come but understand he isnt a Tulo type player but you think the downgrade is to much? This guy is also only offering picks no other players. What would u ask for and what do you think it the least I could do or do you not trade Tulo at all?

My opinion: I cant do anything less than 2 1st Round picks and honestly I think I need the 1st overall pick. Thoughts?

Tulo is an elite keeper and should put up better numbers in RBI, HR, AVG, OBP, and comparable numbers in runs. So for you to downgrade like that, I'd suggest to get another keeper in the deal at least. Two 1sts, after 96 players kept, isn't all that great of a pool. And you're certainly not likely going to get a player comparable to Tulo, much less at a position as shallow as SS.

I'd say if you're dead set on dealing him and moving Andrus up, you should get the 1st pick, 3rd pick, and more. I guarantee you if I traded Tulo in my league (12 teams, 6 keepers), I could get a solid keeper (in the McCutchen, Bruce line) and a 1st and 2nd round pick without trying. And that's the floor. If that owner isn't willing to give a player in return for a top keeper, then go on to another. That could lead to a better deal or leverage the first owner into giving a more serious offer. As it stands, I would not even consider that deal.

I wouldn't trade Tulo just for picks, especially when you're in an eight keeper league. Even if you got the first overall pick, third, etc, the players that will be available aren't going to be of anywhere close to Tulo's caliber.

And I think the downgrade from Tulo to Andrus is significant.
