UPDATE: Got an offer (from other owner) for Hanley Ramirez?

Postby NikeTxGuy » Fri Apr 29, 2011 3:00 pm

I am offering an owner that has Hanley the following trade (buying low on Hanley):

MY Carlos Quentin, Corey Hart & Josh Beckett for HIS Hanley Ramirez.

UPDATE: I took that off the table and he sent me a proposal:

MY Quentin/Beckett/Hart/Andrus for HIS Sands/Bourjos/Ian Kennedy/Hanley Ramirez... keep in mind that this is a 10-TEAM KEEPER LEAGUE! ;-D


Should I do it? I'm not so sure Quentin will keep this up, Beckett will come back down to earth, Hart who knows what he'll do, Andrus is the only one I'm concerned about... BUT I AM getting the best player in the deal... what should I do Fantasy Baseball Cafe?? :-o

IF I do accept this deal and the trade goes through, this is what my team would look like:

C - Matt Wieters
1B - Adrian Gonzalez
2B - Danny Espinosa (filling in for Neil Walker who plays 3B as well, who is filling in for Longoria who is on the DL)
3B - Neil Walker
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Curtis Granderson
OF - Carlos Gonzalez
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
UT - Ike Davis
UT - B.J. Upton
BN - Peter Bourjos
BN - Jerry Sands

DL - Evan Longoria (coming back next tuesday, supposedly)

SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - Josh Johnson
SP - Tim Lincecum
SP - James Shields
SP - Alexi Ogando
SP - Hiroki Kuroda
SP - Ian Kennedy

RP - Francisco Cordero
RP - Jordan Walden
RP - Sean Marshall

When Evan Longoria comes back, my team will look like this:

C - Matt Wieters
1B - Adrian Gonzalez
2B - Neil Walker
3B - Evan Longoria
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Curtis Granderson
OF - Carlos Gonzalez
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
UT - Ike Davis
UT - B.J. Upton
BN - Peter Bourjos
BN - Jerry Sands

SP - Felix Hernandez
SP - Josh Johnson
SP - Tim Lincecum
SP - James Shields
SP - Alexi Ogando
SP - Hiroki Kuroda
SP - Ian Kennedy

RP - Francisco Cordero
RP - Jordan Walden
RP - Sean Marshall

With the ONLY weakness being in relief pitching.

Re: Trade for Hanley Ramirez? Too much or just enough? WHIR.

I think he would be nuts to take it, but who knows? If ever there was a time to buy low on Hanley, it's now. In fact, I just picked up Hanley and Crawford for Braun and Jose Reyes in my keeper league. Hate to lose Braun, but I still think I scored.

I certainly wouldn't do it, but it's not an insulting offer by any means. Gotta start somewhere.

It's good but not a slam dunk. Quentin is really good when he plays but there are injury concerns with him. Hart is not a great player and Beckett flashes brilliance but also stinks up the joint fairly often. All in all, if you can fill their positions reasonably well then it's a great deal for you.


Thanks for looking at mine.

It sounds like he offered it to you right? If so it is a nice deal for you and I would take it. Please help out my Hanley question.

I like the updated offer better then your offer. I would definitely take it. If Andrus is all your worried about, well your replacing him with Hanley. The bit peices aren't throw-aways either. Good move for you.

I say you take it.

Quentin always gets hurt. Sox and feast or famine this year too.
Hart -- don't know what you get with him. Such a wild card.
Beckett -- it seems many a home start is accompanied by 8 er. He'll dominate for 2 months and then drop off a cliff... i realize this is a bit dramatic, but u get the point.
Andrus -- like him, but no power, and he steals seem to come in bunches. I'd rather buy low on the 5 tool attack in hanley and get some solid pieces with him.
