Trade Ryan Howard ***Blockbuster***

Postby bbraatz15 » Wed Mar 09, 2011 10:54 pm

Play in an 11 team 5x5 Roto league. Was just offered the below trade. I have Arod and Votto to cover my 1B and 3B/CI.

I Get: Neftali Feliz, Pedro Alvarez, Brandon Belt

I Give: Ryan Howard Drew Storen

It is a keeper league. Our draft is complete. My keepers for next year will be Braun, Cano, Votto, Josh Johnson, Kershaw, Andrus, McCutcheon, Ryan Howard. If I do the trade I can keep all these guys minus Howard and the three guys I trade for.

I have the first or second best team this year.

Thanks for the help!

Hard to say w/out seeing ur complete roster and team needs but just from what I see... u give up the best player and in the process lose a keeper... I don't like it.

I don't like this deal at all.
It looks like a trade just to be trading.
You can definitely get more for Howard.

Do you think you can win this league this season with your squad as is? If so, then no, don't do the trade.
If you think you're bound to fail this season and next, then sure, trade for the young talent.

IMHO this trade is lopsided and it's not in your favor. I would not do this trade as I think you're team looks fine and should compete well.
