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.

If you deal Werth now you are likely selling low. I wouldn't rely on fangraphs projections to decide a trade...

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?

Seems about right, IMO he'll still be the best player in the trade when all is said and done. Hosmer is high risk/high reward if you have to deal Werth to get him. I would gamble on Hosmer for a lower price...
