2 for 1 - Trade Advice - WHIR!

Postby bcrossnf » Wed Mar 23, 2011 10:09 pm

So here's my team:

C Matt Wieters
1B Pablo Sandoval
2B Robinson Canó
3B José Bautista
SS Alexei Ramírez
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Chris Young
OF Vernon Wells
Util Carlos Beltrán
Util Michael Cuddyer
BN Tsuyoshi Nishioka
BN Gaby Sánchez
BN J.P. Arencibia

SP Roy Halladay
SP Max Scherzer
RP Carlos Mármol
RP Joakim Soria
P Ryan Dempster
P Madison Bumgarner
P Joe Nathan
P Jaime García
BN James Shields
BN Hong-Chih Kuo

I have two trades which I proposed. Just wanted to see what you guys think about them. I need to improve my SPs a bit and just missed out on getting Carlos Santana for C (drafted 1 pick before mine). Here goes:

    I give: Beltran, Shields
    I get: Liriano

This guy also has Chipper, would adding him to the trade be too much?

    I give: Wieters, Nishioka
    I get: CSantana

Sean Rodriguez is a FA, so I would definitely pick him up to replace Nishioka.

Let me know if you think these are fair trades or what I could offer instead.

Like the second one more but both look pretty good.
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

Pardon my francais but Beltran sucks. Shields is OK so i think that upgrade there is better than the upgrade from Wieters to Santana which may be fairly negligible if stuff falls right for Wieters this year.

No question #1 would be my preference but if that falls through, trade the post post hype Weiters and Sushi for the upgrade at C..

Good luck and please help with mine:

Trade #1 is an easy win for you. Though I see that you actually proposed the deal, so don't count on it being accepted.

Trade #2 is closer in value but I like the Santana side. It's possible that it may be accepted, though again I don't think it's likely either.

Hard to say w/out seeing the other rosters but I can't imagine these teams being bad enough to accept either of those deals. Like going after Liriano, I just think ur gonna have to go back to the drawing board to come up w/a better deal.
