NEED HELP TODAY!!! WHIR if I can....

Postby daveblotto » Sun Mar 06, 2011 10:46 am

Keeper Auction League 5x5 Roto....

Would you Trades Stanton $11 for Liriano $8?

At this point I can keep 5 Players... and I intend on keeping
Choo $5, Werth , $9 , Bucholz 5, and Possibly Pedro Alvarez 6 or Hellickson for 5 or Maybe N.Feliz for $7.

Really not sure what to do here.

I say yes. Liriano is a really good SP and at a price of $8 that is a steal. I like Stanton but I worry that he will be more Adam Dunn. His k rate worries me plus he doesn't have a track record in the majors. I think Stanton will be good but I will still take the more sure thing in Liriano.

I would take the Liriano side, it's a better value and Liriano's no slouch. Alvarez is a very similar player to Stanton in terms of what he'll give you (plus power, k's, low average). You don't need two of those type guys on your roster and Alvarez at $6 is a better value. That said, if you trade for Liriano, you'll be forced to keep 2 pitchers, which is never great. Not sure if you have any other bats, but o for me, it would be Choo, Werth, Alvarez, Liriano, and Buchholz.

Can you help me out?

My first inclination was to pass on this deal, but I think the other posters brought up good points with Alvarez v. Stanton. I would probably lean toward the good SP and gain a bit of savings in the process.

Thoughts on mine?

I would take that trade. Stanton is more unproven, and easier to replace.

Mine is here if you have a sec, thanks. viewtopic.php?t=423316
