Is this worth it for me??? WHIR

Postby Guzman24 » Mon Mar 21, 2011 5:21 pm

This will only work if both these deals go down.

12 team h2h 5x5 obp instead of avg and qs instead of w's
8 keepers

Current keepers: Votto, Teix, Reyes, Kemp, Kinsler, Verlander, JJohnson, Price or Liriano

Deal one:
I send: Teix/Reynolds (non keeper)
I get Bruce/Heyward

Deal two:
I send: Kinsler,Price,Liriano
I get: Cano, 1st round pick

Resulting in my keepers being: Votto, Cano, Reyes, Kemp, Heyward, Bruce, JJ, Verlander
Plus I gain a 1st round pick which I don't have right now

Is this worth it for me????

I like it ... because:

Although I like Teix, I am not a Reynolds guy.
I like Bruce and Heyward a ton.

I am not big on Kinsler, and Liriano is risky. Therefore, Cano plus a likely stud with that 1st round pick seals it for me.

Can you look at mine again? I listed an alternate to Wandy... will my speed and sp be able to weather this deal?: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=424597

Well I think the sum of this trades are a downgrade for you based on just this year, unless Heyward just completely mashes, and Bruce plays to full potential. I'm a huge fan of both Heyward and Bruce in the near future though. The cost on Cano seems kind of steep but Cano is great.

I think I'd pull this trade off though. Its risky this year but I think you come out ahead in the future. What OFs are you replacing with Bruce and Heyward, and who will slide into your UTIL slot?

Thanks for mine.

These deals would go down before we declare our keepers.

As it stands right now I am cutting either Price or Lirano for nothing as we only keep 8

Yes, the price for Cano seems steep but I'm basically paying for the 2B upgrade with 2 pitchers that I value under JJ and Verlander and wouldn't be keeping.

I guess the question is, which set of keepers do you prefer going forward?
I'm also gaining a first round pick if I go ahead with these deals. Something I don't currently have.

If it boils down to keepers next year, then take the deal IMO. I guess if you can't keep Price/Liriano thats not as huge a deal.

It's a nice deal for you.
I prefer Bruce/Heyward/Cano/pick over Tex/Kinsler/Price by a lot.
