6 player trade, should I pull the trigger?

Postby JHubRoyals » Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:06 pm

12-team 7 Keeper, 5 Propsect Roster, 5x5 Roto league. We just finished our draft two days ago and already I have received a mini-blockbuster trade offer.

I receive: Justin Morneau, Yovani Gallardo and Brian Wilson

I give up: Mark Teixera, Jhoulys Chacin and Jonathan Broxton

Should I do it? I'm obviously giving up the best player involved in Tex and replacing him with a huge injury risk, but the other two players are clear upgrades.

Here is my team:
C- C. Iannetta
1B- M. Teixiera
2B- I. Kinsler
SS- M. Aviles
3B- A. Ramirez
MI- R. Raburn
CI- B. Butler
OF- C. Gonzalez, A. McCutchen, CB Young, Ad. Jones, V. Wells
UTIL- C. Crisp
Bench- W. Venable, C. Pena, E. Encarnacion, Kila Ka'aihue

SP- Cl. Lee, S. Marcum, W. Rodriguez
RP- J. Broxton, B. Lyon
P- D. Storen, M. Garza, J. Chacin, T. Cahill
Bench- B. Fuentes, Ed. Jackson, T. Wood, A. Wainwright

Thanks for any help!

No way, not even close in my opinion

Just too much risk here with Morneau to feel good about this trade

Hmmm I guess I was way off by being tempted by this trade.

I wouldn't be so quick to turn it down. I would sit on it a bit and see how Morneau's health turns out. Gallardo and Wilson are pretty big upgrades.
League Setup:
13 Team Points League
6 Hitters 3 Pitchers (Positions don't matter)
1B = 1, 2B = 2, 3B = 3, HR = 4, RBI = 1
Win = 12, Save = 5

Morneau is a huge risk and if he misses any time at all due to his concussion problems then you get absolutely killed in this trade.
Also i think Chacin is poised to have a really big year and may even be on par with Gallardo (who also got hurt last yr) but with just a little lower K rate (~9.5K/9 vs 8.5K/9 projected for 2011)
yes, Wilson is better than Broxton, but how much value does 1 closer really have?

So i turn this trade down.

can you help out on my post regarding mock draft results?
