Big Trade? WHIR!

Postby Bea Arthur » Fri Apr 29, 2011 2:08 pm

Deep 20 team, 5x5 H2H (OBP instead of AVG, which is key with Youk) league, 5 keepers. I have Alvarez, but my patience is wearing thin. If I did this, I would then turn around and swap Pedro for a pitcher (Volquez is on the table, but might hold him til he heats up). I would still have two closers, assuming Santos keeps the job, which isn't bad for a 20 team league.

Thoughts? Could also possibly do Perez for Alex Gordon instead...

My lineup:

C - Soto
1B - Votto
2B - Cano
SS - Escobar
3B - Alvarez
OF - Heyward
OF - Crisp
OF - Crawford
UTIL - Coghlan
BN - Encarnacion
BN - Helton
DL - Furcal

SP - Morrow
SP - Chacin
SP - De La Rosa
SP - Wolf
SP - Navreson
RP - Perez
RP - Santos
P - Walden
P - W. Davis
P - Chapman

Hells bells, if you can get Youklis in exchange for Chacin and Perez, by all means I think you should do it.

I don't think I would give Perez to get Gordon right now. I just think he Gordon is going to cool.

Go for Youk.

If Youk-an think of something better, then by all means. But that is a nice deal for a proven and productive bat who really has his best hitting ahead of him this year.

I would go for Youkilis as well. I own him and wouldn,t give him away for that, even in a 20 teamer.

Youk looks really solid in this deal. You are taking him to the cleaners here.

To answer your topic question, I would trade for Youkilis, yes. Always trade for the best player but with my proposed offer by the other owner, I'm not quite so sure... good luck! ;-D
