Halladay Trade (WHIR)

Postby Holein1 » Sun Mar 13, 2011 11:58 pm

Offered Halladay for Kershaw and Crawford. Before you scoff look at the reasoning on why I am considering this. This is a H2H points league. Below is the point breakdown.

Keepers Before trade

Verlander, Kershaw, Morales, Crawford and J Upton

Keepers with trade

Halladay, Verlander Moreales J Upton and Ethier.

Would you do this trade. And if you would is it better to offer Verlander instead of Kershaw?

Here is the scoring.

Please join my league if you are considering this...Kershaw is a stud, Crawford is a stud. Kershaw is only going to get better. Your OF takes too big of a hit (I know you can always draft OF, but there are plenty of SP's too).

Yes, you get a more consistent and very reliable SP w/ Roy, but Kershaw is a future CY and Crawford is a 5 tool guy. DON'T DO THIS

I don't like it. I understand kind of what you are doing but i think you are underestimating how good Kershaw is. He is only 22 and should be a top 10 SP for sometime. Halladay is at the top right now but he is on the wrong side of 30 to continue to be there for much longer. Just look at where Santana is right now and he was the top SP just a couple years ago. In a keeper league, give me the young studs who have proven they can do it at the ML level any day of the week.
