Need Some Advice - not a dumbass, so no worries.............

Postby linberg » Sat Apr 16, 2011 7:45 pm

Just looking for some quick feedback if I'm tinkering too much or if this could be worth it:

Keeper league 6 players - 10 teams

Looking to trade M Young and Holliday for Arod + D Young - this was proposed to me, so I can move on that immediately

The kicker is I'm trying to work a deal for J Upton by giving D Price - not worried about my pitching since we have no innings limit (hence Ks and Ws can just be gotten at the end of the year) - if I can make that work I think this may make some sense, so it would become:

M Young, Holliday, Price for Arod, J Upton, D Young, at which point I could wait on Young and drop him if needed...

This to me is a close call. I really like Justin Upton but I think you are undervaluing Price a bit. I understand the no innings limit part of the equation but can you get those W's and K's without destroying ERA and WHIP? I do kind of like the Holliday trade but again, it's not a runaway to me.

The Price offer fell through, so I have Arod + D Young for Holliday + M Young. The big question mark here is how good Arod will be for the next 3ish years, which is about how long I'd plan on keeping Holliday. He's a sure thing, so right now I have little risk, but Arod at 3B is huge

Thanks!

I dont think the slight updgrade from Holliday to ARod is worth the downgrade from Young to Young. I dont trust Delmon and Michael is finding playing time all over the diamond.
