Need Help: 3 for 1 trade. WHIR

Postby Conrax » Mon May 16, 2011 2:20 pm

This is for a 12 team, 18 keeper, H2H most categories league.

Categories: Batter: R,RBI,HR,SB,AVG
Pitching: K, W, ERA, WHIP, SV

Proposed trade:
I give Carl Crawford
I would get: Mitch Moreland, Cole Hamels, Kyle Loshe

Read my latest post for what happened.
New trade proposed:
Carl Crawford for Howie Kendrick, Mitch Moreland, and Cole Hamels

This guy has wanted Crawford for a bit now, but I am not sure if this trade really benefits me or what I could get back from him that I really need. First is this a fair trade and does this really help me? If not what should I counter to be able to fill a weakness in my roster as well as get close to fair value for Crawford? This would bolster my pitching with two pitchers and I do have depth at OF/LF but is this really worth it for me?

I think it's selling a bit low on Crawford. I'd try to get one good bat and Hamels instead of Moreland+Lohse.

Since it's a keeper I would try and switch Hosmer for Lohse

You can get much better than loshe and Moreland. Try to go for a better bat. Go for quality more than quantity.

Help me out on my cargo thread

;-D

Not really high on Lohse in a Keeper league. I'm confident you can get more than the current package for Crawford

thanks for helping with mine

Ok update: I countered with giving Crawford and getting Hosmer, Hamels, Moreland.

He countered with giving Crawford and getting Carlos Lee, Cole Hamels, and Mitch Moreland. Then I went bully style and countered with me giving up Crawford and getting Longoria and Hamels.

Which leads to this: Crawford for Kendrick, Moreland, Hamels
Kendrick has been good and now has 2b and 1b eligibility but is it worth it from a keeper standpoint or should I try again for Crawford for Hosmer,Hamels, and Moreland or something completely different?

In a keeper, I'm thinking that Kendrick and Moreland wouldn't be players I would consider keeping at all. No way I do this deal for what he countered with. You still have to drop two players in all this, and basically it comes down to Crawford for Hamels. I consider that too much to give up for Hamels.

I would go with something completely different. I don't like any of the offers on the table and still think you could get more for Craw.

thanks for your help with mine
