Beachy/Martin for Alexei/Doumit(Updated, skip to bottom)

Postby rjforlife » Thu May 12, 2011 10:18 pm

5x5 H2H Keeper. 10 teams. keep up to 6. My SS position is awful and Martin has been on a slide the last couple weeks. Beachy has been hot so I'm hesitant but I think I can afford to let him go. All the players can be kept for $5 except Alexei who would be $12. Drop a link I'll respond.

I don't like this deal for you. Beachy is the real deal and you could get a lot more for him since he is so hot. Martin is also a better play than Doumit who doesn't even get all the playing time on the lowly Pirates. Doumit is hot right now but Martin is the better option. YOu can get more for Beach and Martin.

thanks for your help on mine. Please help with this one:

Go Beachy for Alexei straight up and it is something you could think about b/c your pitching is absolutely FILTHY and you can only keep 6. Right now I don't think Beachy is a keeper on your current squad and I also don't know if alexei would be one either. That being said don't give up martin for doumit for sure.

you are playing with house money so offer beachy to some other guys for SS and see if you can snake someone on a deal!

I think Alexei is a great buy-low target for you. That being said, not sure you're buying low here at all. Beachy's been terrific and Martin's going to get my vote over Doumit based on AB's as much as anything.

Can you do this deal and be OK? Yes...you can afford to move Beachy and I don't love either catcher. But, Barney's buying you some time to find the "right deal". I think you can do a little better.

Heck, this guy has like 4 catchers and has Alexei on the bench...his bargaining power isn't great here. He's looking to move these guys for anything he might actually use. Go get Alexei...just see if you can do it a little cheaper.

yeah, i think alexei is the best buy low guy at ss, a 2nd half player too. I love beachy but sp is easier to find than a SS. Dont like losing martin either, but probably have to in order to get it done

-agreed. I have Martin too and he's been quiet. But I think you should hold him and do the one for one. Maybe he can upgrade you elsewhere too. If you were to add a second player. But 1 for 1 is solid here.

I'm in agreement with Kidsilk on this one. I think you are giving up too much talent to get medicore players in return. Your SP is very, very strong, so you can afford to shop Beachy around and get better return for him.

I countered Martin/Cueto, he countered Martin/Kennedy. How can I square this deal? Also Doumit is just on the wire I would pick him up. Drop a link!

I wouldn't do Martin/Kennedy and I would think about Martin/Beachy. Who are the top SP FA in your league? Just to get an idea of the replacement level for pitching.

Why don't you try getting another SS? It looks like this manger doesn’t want to trade Alexi. The counter are one sided in his favour as Martin is worth more than both pitchers. I would try to get one of these: Aybar, Castro, or even Desmond. I'm sure you can get those for a cheaper price, and they are all play around Alexei's level or better.
