Trying To Trade Werth, Please Help

Postby Rmbxr9 » Thu May 19, 2011 10:20 pm

18 Team League
My Scoring:
1B: 1.5
2B: 2.5
3B: 3
HR: 4
RBI: 1.5
Run: 1
SB: 1
K: -1
BB: .75

So Werth is killing me with his 0-3, 2Ks (-2 Points), 2-4, 2Ks (1 Point) etc...
I'm trying to get an OF who hits for better average, but still with production, and doesn't K as much.

There's a guy shopping Hosmer, who I wouldn't mind having just in case he hits his upside levels.
He has an OF of: C.Rasmus, L.Morrison, M.Brantley, N.Markakis, B.Gardner

Brantley seems like the exact guy I described, and LOMO looks good as well.

Should I offer this?
GIVE - Werth, Brett Wallace
GET - Brantley or LOMO, Hosmer

Wallace has a bunch of points right now, but I can see him trending down and lacks power.

Should I?
Does it have a chance of acceptance?

Using Fangraphs, and other sites, I've mashed up their updated projections plus what that'd be worth in my league

Werth - 405 Total Points
Wallace - 365 Total Points

LOMO - 398 Total Points
M.Brantley - 512 Total Points
Hosmer - 325 Total Points

Seems to me that Brantley/Hosmer would be a good pair to go after.

Depending on what you think of Werth, I guess.
I'm thinking 25 HR, 70RBIS, 20 SBs, 150 Ks, .270

Brantley won't his for power, but he won't K, he'll score runs, he'll steal more bags, more base-hits, etc.

I think you should stick with Werth.

I don't rely solely on that, but 25 HR, 70RBIS, 20 SBs, 150 Ks, .270 seems pretty much what he'll do.
Don't you think?
