trading to get two first round picks WHIR

Postby fierro33 » Fri Mar 11, 2011 1:08 pm

10 team h2h 5x5 non keeper

basic settings c,1b,2b,3b,ss,of,of,of,util, 6pslots,7bench (kinda shallow)

would u trade ur 2nd and 3rd round picks so that u get 2 first round picks in the draft?

i have the 7th overall, he has the 2nd overall

here is his offer:

Send 2nd Round Draft Pick (14th Overall) to Mashers
Send 3rd Round Draft Pick (27th Overall) to Mashers
Send 5th Round Draft Pick (47th Overall) to Mashers
Receive 1st Round Draft Pick (2nd Overall) from Mashers
Receive 5th Round Draft Pick (42nd Overall) from Mashers
Receive 7th Round Draft Pick (62nd Overall) from Mashers

he is bascially giving me 1,7 for 2,3, but upgrading my 5th

this leaves me with

1st (2nd overall,ill take hanram)
1st (7th overall)
4th
5th
6th
7th
7th
8th

I have a hard time judging draft pick trades. Saying that, it looks good to me. It will hurt, not having a 2nd or a 3rd round pick but having two 1st should more than make up for it.

Here is my top 10 list...hard to pass up on having 2 of those guys with my first two picks...

1 Albert Pujols, StL 1B
2 Hanley Ramirez, Fla SS
3 Carl Crawford, Bos OF
4 Evan Longoria, TB 3B
5 Ryan Braun, Mil OF
6 Robinson Cano, NYY 2B
7 Miguel Cabrera, Det 1B
8 Troy Tulowitzki, Col SS
9 Joey Votto, Cin 1B
10 Roy Halladay, Phi SP

This what I would think would be left as your 4th round pick came around...

Jayson Werth, Was OF
Ichiro Suzuki, Sea OF
Jason Heyward, Atl OF
Tommy Hanson, Atl SP
Victor Martinez, Det C
Ian Kinsler, Tex 2B
Alex Rios, CWS OF
Justin Verlander, Det SP
Hunter Pence, Hou OF
Chris Carpenter, StL SP
Brian McCann, Atl

Personally, I like that trade and I'd probably jump on it. Hope this helps.

I firmly subscribe to the theory that you win fantasy baseball leagues with star players. Especially in a 10-team league, you're going to be able to mix and match and fill guys in when they get hot, so the key is to get as many studs as possible. I don't think you can pass up an opportunity to get Hanley.

Go for it.
