My Choo-Choo and Posey for Fielder

Postby BALCO All-Stars » Fri Mar 04, 2011 12:31 pm

12 team, H2H, C/1B/2B/3B/SS/MI/CI/4 OF/UTIL/9 P/3 BN/2 DL

Current keepers:

C: Posey
1B: Votto
2B: Utley
3B: Longoria
CI: A-Rod

I got offered:

his Prince Fielder for my Buster Posey and Shin Choo-Choo

Fielder would just replace Posey and he would occupy my UTIL spot...thoughts? no brainer right? especially since I'm not freezing Choo anyway?

Assuming it's 5x5? and I have no idea how keepers are evaluated or drafted but I'd say you'll be fine either way. It's definitely not a no-brainer, especially if Posey can be drafted in a later round for you than Prince.

I might just keep Posey for years to come at a thin position and draft more power in the draft. You're definitely not SHORT on power as it stands now.

First, I'd be keeping Choo over A-Rod, you have no SB currently being kept.

I would counter Posey and A-Rod for Fielder.

Any way you could package ARod and Choo for a first round OF'er like Braun, Cargo, or Crawford?

So Choo's 20 bags will take him to the ship? There's TONS of cheap speed this year...there's never really cheap power and 120+ RBI

Yes, it is 5x5.

I disagree about keeping Choo over A-Rod, I'd rather have the bigger power threat at a thinner position, especially when we use a CI.

I am planning on packaging A-Rod with a Phillips to get a top OF (Crawford fits best) back to balance out my team some more, and if not, IMO power is king in H2H leagues, and I can grab a Rajai Davis, Gardner, name your later round 40+ SB OF player here as the draft goes on.

Well maybe in that case yes, but I don't see A-Rod getting 120 RBI and jacking 35+ HR. It's like a 10 HR and 15 RBI victory for A-Rod, 15 SB and 10 BA victory for Choo. CI can easily be filled by a first basemen to give you 25 HR.

As for the steals, I don't think you want to run out Gardner or Pierre everyday, they'll take a toll on you elsewhere.

Plus it's a keeper league and realistically this could be the last year Utley is worth keeping.

Yeah I agree with the Utley comment, I think this is the last year to get real value for him. Maybe try to package him and someone else for like a Cano or even a SS position. I like Choo a lot and think this year he will shine having Santana back in the lineup with maybe a healthy Sizemore. Your team looks really good and you might be able to 2 for 1 to get a really weak position. I however dont like trading for a Util guy and handicapping myself that early. Any offers you see possible?

I agree with most posters, I wouldn't give up Posey as he should be a keeper for years to come. Look at how the MLB teams are reacting to Fielder, they don't want him long term, because his body could break down in a few years.

I'd say this is a no brainer deal for you. Go get Fielder.
