Troy Tulowitzki Trade Advice Please

Postby Rmbxr9 » Mon May 09, 2011 4:11 am

18 Team Leauge - Points

Singles - 1.5
Double - 2.5
Triple - 3
HR - 4
RBI - 1.5
SB - 1
BB - .75
K - (-)1

I've been kind of talking myself into proposing this trade, a friend said it was crazy...
Points to date in parenthesis

I Give
T.Tulowitzki (124)
J.Werth (80)
P.Alvarez (31)

I Get
A.Gordon (130)
D.Stubbs (100) OR J.Upton (112)
S.Drew (102)

So IMO I'm upgrading at 3B, and making a lateral move of sorts in the OF possibly even upgrading if Werth doesn't get it together and Zimmerman never comes back. That Washington lineup is rough.

Tulo is obviously a loss, and Drew has the Groin of an 85 year old, but last year for instance Drew only finished 60 Points behind Tulo. Granted Tulo was hurt, but his numbers would have probably been around the same taking into account his super-human September.

Am I talking myself into something bad????
I think a lot of this depends on what you think of Gordon. I know some people just say "He Sucks" and that's the end, but what if he figured it out and he's going to put up 18-20 HRs, 90RBIs, 90-100 Runs, 45 Doubles

Here would be my lineup
C - Arencibia/Ianetta
1B - Smoak/Wallace
2B - Roberts/Beckham
3B - A.Gordon
SS - S.Drew
OF - Kemp, Cruz, Stubbs OR Upton
UTIL - Rios/Bonifacio

I'm in 5/18th right now, so I'm doing alright, just getting nothing out of 3B and Werth is getting on my nerves

I don't really want to trade Tulo, but he's really my biggest trade chip besides Kemp.
I like Stubbs and Gordon, I'm just afraid to pull the trigger on Tulo.

Any chance someone would take Tulo/Alvarez for Gordon/Stubbs/Drew. Taking out Werth

If that trade was on the table for me, I would probably hit accept within 10 seconds.

You are really underestimating Tulos value here. The guy has the potential to put up top 5 OVERALL hitter numbers at the SS position. SS this year is probably the thinnest it has ever been in recent time in fantasy.

Without getting into details about all the other players, my best advice would be do NOT trade Tulo unless you get one of the following players back in the deal- Pujols, Miggy, Braun, Votto, Halladay.
