Postby Alkaholik » Mon May 02, 2011 6:10 pm

10 Team H2H league.

my batting bloooows, its worst in the league, but i have a nice pitching staff. Figured i need to try and trade some of it for Longoria before he comes back.

I was thinking Dan Haren and Trevor Cahill for Longoria, you guys think i'm giving too little? too much? or possibly depleting my pitchign staff too much?

My Team:

SP: Jered Weaver (LAA - SP)
SP: Dan Haren (LAA - SP)
SP: Trevor Cahill (Oak - SP)
SP: Jonathan Sánchez (SF - SP)
SP: Edinson Vólquez (Cin - SP)
SP: Daniel Hudson (Ari - SP)
SP: Gavin Floyd(CWS - SP)

C Brian McCann (Atl - C)
1B Justin Morneau (Min - 1B)
2B Robinson Canó (NYY - 2B)
3B Miles Aviles (KC - 3b,2b,ss)
SS Starlin Castro (ChC - SS)
OF Matt Holliday (StL - OF)
OF Carlos Quinten (CWS - OF)
OF Carl Crawford (BOS - OF)
OF Johnny Damon (TB - OF)
UTIL Jason Bay (NYM - OF)

You could try that, but if you're trading SP for him it's gonna take first round talent..... Not knowing the other teams roster or needs, I'm thinking it's not going to be enough.

I don't think it's likely to get Longo for any less than your two best SP and that would cripple your staff. Even that's a stretch as most Longo owners wouldn't consider moving him for pitching unless they were getting Hallady, Felix or Lincecum plus an excellent second player. I think you are better off trying to get a lesser 3B or for less or a better 1B than Morneau. You might be able to parlay someone like Weaver or Kershaw for a Youkilis type but I think it's unlikely you'd get Longo with either.
