Massive Trade (Felix, Tulo, Rollins, Crawford etc) WHIR

Postby unc_rules1540 » Tue May 10, 2011 7:36 pm

I gave:
Miguel Montero
Jimmy Rollins
Carl Crawford
Max Scherzer
Jordan Walden
Brandon Leauge
Ryan Madson

I got:
Felix Hernandez
Troy Tulowitzki
Brian McCann
Eric Hosmer
Pablo Sandoval
Logan Morrison


Basically, I felt like I was wasting three closers on my bench that I could leverage for upgrades at other positions, so I traded away my depth for those upgrades. Good move or bad move?


Here's my team now:

10 Team Points (not h2h or roto) League:
[Batters: 1B=1, 2B=2, 3B=3, HR=4, R=1, RBI=1, SB=2, CS=-1, BB=1, K=-1, E=-1]
[Pitchers: IP=3, W=10, L=-5, S=8, BS=-5, K=1, BB=-1, H=-1, HR=-1, ER=-1)

C: Brian McCann
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Martin Prado
3B: Aramis Ramirez
SS: Troy Tulowitzki
OF: Ryan Braun
OF: Colby Rasmus
OF: Shin Soo-Choo
Util: Mark Teixeira
Util: Eric Hosmer
B- Logan Morrison
DL- Pablo Sandoval


SP- Felix Hernandez
SP- Vicente Padilla
RP- Jose Valverde
RP- Fransisco Rodriguez
P- Joel Hanrahan

I think you scored. Felix and Tulo are the 2 best players in that deal and you get them. I almost would say that deal would be fine even if you only got Felix, Tulo and McCann.

I like the trade for you for sure. I've never seen a trade involving that many players before.

Thanks for the help in my post.

As others have stated, you got the two best players in the deal in Tulo and Felix, however I really like the additional players you received. McCann, Sandoval, Hosmer, and LoMo. All 6 of the players you received in that deal can make a big impact on your team. Relief options can be had a dime a dozen, and giving up Scherzer, Crawford, and Rollins for that bunch is a steal!!!

yeah, generally I really don't like big trades because I believe trades are made to accomplish a roster goal... something more tangible than "get better"... such as I need SB and I have SV to spare. Big trades are often just made for the purpose of making a trade... which I personally feel is a bad idea.
In this case however, you got more top players, and generally that means you win. It's hard to say of course without looking in detail at your roster and league rules, but usually the team getting the best player wins in my books.

Thanks for the help with mine.
