Need help with trade for Fielder, Utley and Burnett!

Postby xstime1 » Thu May 12, 2011 10:10 am

'm in a 10 team H2H league.

I was offered a trade for Fielder, Utley and A.J. Burnett for the struggling Carpenter and Ryan Howard. I think Howard for Fielder is basically a wash (although fielder strikes out considerably less). So it comes down to a disabled Utley and an decent Burnett for a struggling Carpenter. I truly believe Carpenter will right the ship and be his consistently dominant self eventually.

Any thoughts? Should I make the deal or hold on to what I have? I'm pretty strong in my league at both pitching and hitting but relatively weak (Jed Lowrie) at 2nd base.

My Roster ..........His Roster

A. Avila C .......... G.Soto
R. Howard 1B .......... P.Fielder

B. Wilson RP ........... M.Rivera

Reserves

A. Soriano OF .......... C.Lee
M. Stanton OF .......... G.Sanchez
J. Peavy SP .......... C.Utley
E. Volquez SP ........... N.Cruz
J. Soria RP .......... A.Burnett

It looks like a case of how much risk do you want to acquire. Obviously the upside on Utley is tremendous but his injury is just really weird. Lowrie isn't that bad an option, either so if you're already cruising in your league I might just sit tight instead of rolling the dice.

You can always post these trade offers or ideas on tradebashers.com. You input the players and league details and the community of managers votes on which side of the trade they'd prefer to receive. So you know exactly how reasonable or lopsided a deal might be. It also helps when dealing with other managers so that instead of just saying, "your offer stinks," you can say "87% of managers think your offers stinks."

This is a tough one, but I think you should do it.

I actually think Fielder is a decent upgrade over Howard. Mainly, Fielder will have a better AVG, which looks like a good thing for your team. Plus, hes in a better lineup than Howard, so his overall production should be higher than Howard.

Utley is due to start a rehab assignment ASAP, so he looks to be very close to returning. Pitching is just much more replaceable, especially in a 10-team league.
