Big 10 Player Deal Help Please

Postby Rmbxr9 » Sun May 15, 2011 5:04 am

I've been trying to work out a deal with this guy, and at this point I gotta try something as I've slipped to 10/18th place

Total Points League

I GIVE: T.Tulowitski, M.Kemp, B.Roberts, K-Rod (Drop Brandon Wood)

I GET: J.Reyes, A.McCutchen, D.Pedroia, S.Rolen, J.Hellickson

This is how I'm looking at it; Currently Reyes and Tulo ade tied in points, and with our scoring it doesn't seem like they'll be THAT far off.

Pedroia > Roberts
Rolen is better than what I have at 3b in my Alvarez/Wood combo, and I keep P.A just in case
Kemp > A.McCutchen, but AM is still good.

And in our league SP have greater value than CP, Hellickson has looked good.

Am I trying to hard to talk myself into something?
Btw, I have no faith in Roberts this season

If Reyes can stay healthy and SP are more valuable in scoring than RP's I like this trade for you.

It is a fair deal. You are giving up the two best players in the deal but you are getting more depth in return. I don't love the deal but I could see how it would work well for you. Do you have enough RP to make up for the loss of KRod?

I'd basically be giving up on RP, going with 0

Relievers can only get Saves (4.5), Bsv(-2.5), Wins (12), Loss (-7), and K(1) BB(-1)

So KRod, off to a great start has around 70 points...
But a guy like Hosmer already has 35, and looking at last season, the best closer had the same points as like Skip Schumaker.

So, I'm thinking I can get away with none.

Any other thoughts?

Because I'm bored, I used Fangraphs and ESPN along with looking at what they've done in the past and kind of put the points to where I think the season projections will be on these guys...

Tulo - 557
Kemp - 520
B.Roberts - 373
KROD - 245 (40 Saves)

Reyes - 530
McCutchen - 501
Pedroia - 450
Rolen - 320
Hellickson - 231 (13 Win prediction)

The pitching was hard to project wins and saves.
But with this, getting the Reyes side projects to have about 300 more points.
Taking into account that Alvarez has given my basically 0 points thus far (30 Points)

I'm thinking too much about this 8-o

You might be thinking too much about this deal but that is what is great about fantasy baseball. I say you take this deal. The only part I don't like is you giving up Kemp but you even it out otherwise. Take it.

I agree, I don't love giving up Kemp, but in comparison to A.M this is what I have

Kemp
25HR/93RBIs
36 Doubles, 35 Steals, 90 Runs.
But what kills you is the possible 160Ks, which are -1 Point.

A.M
20 HR, 73 RBIs
28 Doubles, 25 Steals, 95 Runs
And he'll walk more and K less

So it's a downgrade, but when you think about taking 170 points away in Ks alone it's not as lopsided.

I just proposed it, we'll see what happens.
If anything, I'll enjoy watching a few different team's games and box scores.

GRRRRRR

Why is trading so hard...
This guy rejected that, and countered with some ridiculousness. Basically the same trade but taking out Pedroia and adding B.McCarthy instead of Hellickson. :-t

He's in 3rd place, using Hannahan all season, so it's not like losing Rolen is a huge deal for him.
He's gaining probably the best SS, a better OF, and a passable 2B to sub in for Pedroia.
And a 40 save closer I guess.

I still like my side, for my specific needs, but I'd think about 80% of people would take the Tulo/Kemp side.
