Longoria for King Felix? WHIR

Postby cmcdonal2001 » Wed May 04, 2011 8:47 pm

Just got proposed a trade: I get Felix Hernandez and the other guy gets Evan Longoria. Weekly H2H, 10 team mixed league

Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Total Bases (TB), Batting Average (AVG)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Losses (L), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS)

Current lineup:

C - A. Avila
1B - K. Youkilis (1B, 3B)
2B - P. Polanco (2B, 3B)
3B - E. Longoria
SS - J. Lowrie (2B, 3B, SS)
OF - J. Heyward
OF - C. Coghlan
OF - A. Lind (OF, 1B)
Util - S. Drew
BN - M. Napoli (C, 1B)
BN - V. Wells
BN - C. Hart
DL - C. Utley

SP - C. Sabathia
SP - C. Hamels
SP - C. Carpenter
RP - M. Rivera
RP - C. Kimbrel
P - K. Lohse
P - J. Jurrjens
P - W. Davis
BN - A. Harang
BN - C. Zambrano
DL - J. Santana

What do you think? I've got a lot of pieces I can move around to fill up my infield (especially when Utley comes back, but that's a bit down the road), but I'm not sure if I'm going to get my money's worth in this one. Thanks!

I'd rather have Longoria. The kicker here is that the league counts Hits and Total Bases. 3rd base is super thin this year with all the injuries and pitchers can be found on the wire. This league also counts loses and King Felix will get loses this year, as he did last year when he only gives up one or two runs. I'd keep Longoria.

I don't think I would do this either. You drafted Longoria with a first round pick, passing Felix in the process so why go back on that now? Longoria got hurt and now he is back and he should be just fine the rest of the year.

Gotta keep Longoria on this one...Felix is the man, but that team is just so horrendous that he won't get the Ws that you're looking for and I completely agree on 3B being so thin...I decided to wait and I have McGehee on my team and I thought I was OK, turns out I was wrong and now I'm suffering...next to longoria, wright, arod nd bautista, no one is even close to them, so I would say you have to hang on to Longoria unless you need pitching THAT badly.

Help?? Thanks! viewtopic.php?f=26&t=429561

I woud keep Longo here as well. King Felix is tempting but like the other guy said Longo was drafted way before Felix in most leagues and is more valuable. Stay put.

please help

I have to go with the crowd. You have a solid pitching staff. Would Felix be a nice addition? of course, but in the long run i think Longoria is more valuable for your team.
