TRADE OFFER: HANRAM & SHIN-SOO for HALLADAY & LINCECUM

Postby jsoupamanc » Mon May 09, 2011 4:23 pm

I trade away Hanley Ramirez and Shin-Soo Choo for Roy Halladay and Tim Lincecum? I believe that if I make my pitching unstoppable that my batters are strong enough that i can give up Hanram and Shin-Soo. Thoughts?

Standard 10 team league. scoring type head to head. Not a keeper league.

Pitchers Stat Categories: (IP), (W), (L), (CG), (SHO), (SV), (K), (ERA), (WHIP), (K/9)

My team is as follows:
C Miguel Montero (Ari - C)
1B Joey Votto (Cin - 1B)
2B Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
3B Mike Aviles (KC - 2B,3B,SS)
SS Hanley Ramírez (Fla - SS)
OF Shin-Soo Choo (Cle - OF)
OF Jacoby Ellsbury (Bos - OF)
OF Justin Upton (Ari - OF)
Util Michael Bourn (Hou - OF)
Util Drew Stubbs (Cin - OF)
BN Asdrubal Cabrera (Cle - SS)
DL Pablo Sandoval (SF - 1B,3B)DL

SP Dan Haren (LAA - SP)
SP Max Scherzer (Det - SP)
RP Matt Capps (Min - RP)
RP John Axford (Mil - RP)
P Aroldis Chapman (Cin - RP)

My league only scores about half of those stats, so it's possible I may be off, but that seems like a killer deal to me. Adding Halladay and the Freak to your staff would let you dominate the pitching categories. You could probably find some decent pickups to replace them. Neither has done much of anything so far this year, so it's not like you'll get a dropoff from where you are in hitting. You may have to stay on the lookout for more hitting, but I would do it.

Help with mine?

your pitching is already fine, no need for this. Especially if it's keeper.

That would give you the best pitching staff I have ever seen in Fantasy. Your pitching is already pretty good, I might just do a 1 for 1 trade, rather then giving up 2 bats. So maybe, Hanley for either Halladay or Lincecum, and keep Choo.

Man, with all those stats, my head is starting to hurt. Who knows what is best when you have to consider all of that mess?

Actually though, I would agree with the above poster and say that you should do a 1-for-1. I don't think your offense is strong enough to lose both Choo and Ramirez.

Should I give Cliff Lee to get Evan Longoria? Help here please:

My biggest fear is if Hanley has a great year even though he is having a slow start. Is he still a top 10 overall player? I don't think Choo is good enough to be a 1 for 1 candidate for Halladay or Lincecum. My other fear is if Asdrubal Cabrera's hot start does not pan out over the rest of the season. The biggest one-two pitchers in my league are Lester & Verlander, another team has a Cliff Lee & David Price, and another team has Weaver & Hamels. I believe I have the deepest pitching staff but am still looking for another ace for my squad. thoughts? or am i just overthinking and run with my current roster for the rest of the season?

It's tempting with CG/SHO/L and K/9 on there because Lince and Halladay become even more dominant than in a normal league. I realize there are also 9 hitting cats (Slam I'm choosing to ignore) but I don't love Choo this season and who knows how long it will take Hanley to get on track. I think you are coming out so far ahead in value in this deal you have to take it. Trade a pitcher away after or something but when monster value like this comes up you have to pounce. Don't hesitate or try to tweak the deal, just take it and deal with roster adjustments after.

well first of all if you add 2 SP, which 2 pitchers would you cut? not even really one good option, let alone 2.

However, you are getting the most value on your side of the trade so i would accept the deal, then trade 2 of your SP for a stud 3B.
see what Haren + Hudson or Haren + Cain can get you.. i would think a david wright/youk wouldnt be too difficult. and im sure R.Zimm would cost even less than that, and he would be back well before H2H playoffs begin.
or maybe a mike young type for Scherzer + Hudson.

Whatever you do though i would focus on upgrading 3B, Aviles is a nice multi-position bench player, but not going to provide the power/rbi you need from an everyday corner infielder.
(EDIT - scratch the zimmerman idea - just realized you have Pablo already on your DL. i would still focus on a healthy 3B tho)


btw thanks for the help on my Upton trade
