Halladay/Chacin/Ellsbury for Lester/Hanson/Morrow?

Postby cs3 » Sun May 01, 2011 4:18 pm

Halladay + Ellsbury + Chacin for
Lester + Tommy Hanson + Morrow

this is in a 10 team H2H league. 6X6 with QS and Hits added.
Also we keep 5 players with no penalties.

We have daily lineups with no innings cap, and count both Wins and QS for pitchers, so quality depth at SP is a huge advantage in this league.
Ellsbury is primed for a huge year but at midnight I can put in a claim for Rajai Davis who is on waivers and will likely steal more bases this year anyway with Toronto's new philosophy.

I would drop Moreland initially to make room for the new pitchers, but at some point soon I would need to lose one of:
Beachy, Garcia, D.Hudson (if I cant trade one for a backup OF or a draft pick, not sure which one Id waive)

Batters
C: Buster Posey (C,1B)
1B: Adam Dunn (1B)
2B: Rickie Weeks (2B)
3B: Alex Rodriguez (3B)
SS: Starlin Castro (SS)
OF: Matt Holliday (OF), Jacoby Ellsbury (OF), Carlos Gonzalez (OF)
Util: Curtis Granderson (OF)
BN: Michael Cuddyer (1B,2B,3B,OF), Mitch Moreland (1B,OF)
DL: Tsuyoshi Nishioka (2B,SS)

Starting Pitchers
SP: Roy Halladay (SP), Brandon Beachy (SP), Mat Latos (SP), Shaun Marcum (SP)
BN: Daniel Hudson (SP), Jaime Garcia (SP), Jhoulys Chacin (SP,RP), Michael Pineda (SP)

Thanks, leave me your link and ill help you out!

Would much raher have the Halladay side of that deal. I'm a Braves fan, but not a big believer in Tommy Hanson.

I like the Halladay side of the trade too. I'd keep him and I think Chacin has some decent value too. He's playing pretty good for the red hot Rockies. I'd stick with your three guys.

Call it a "gut" instinct, but the kid just doesn't seem to have the maturity to be an ace yet. Don't get me wrong, he is an extremely talented young SP. I just think that he is more of a top-20 guy rather than a top-10. And to make this deal work for you, you need to be getting reliable top-value back for Halladay.
