Big trade question, WHIR

Postby Joscellin » Sun May 22, 2011 1:02 pm

Okay, so 10 team 5x5 Roto mixed league. I'm currently sitting in first, with tops on Rs, HRs, near tops on my pitching ratios, but very weak on saves. I've been offered:

Josh Hamilton
Mo Rivera
Wandy Rodriguez

for my

Adrian Beltre
Rus Martin
Shaun Marcum

My roster currently is
C: Martin
1B: Miggy
2B: Kinsler
SS: Andrus
3B: Beltre
CI: Teixera
MI: Hill
OFx5: Bautista, Choo, Werth, Rasmus, Bay
Util: Vladdy
BE: Jeter
DL: Mauer

SPs: J Johnson (DL), Greinke, Marcum, Cahill, C Lewis, Lilly, Danks, Colon, Vogelsong
RPs: Valverde, Melancon


Moving Beltre for Hamilton would let me shift Bautista back in to 3rd, so there are no positional issues. I've been trying to sell high on Martin since I will eventually (I'm assuming ASB) get Mauer back. I can also pick up Y Molina off waivers to fill in the mean time. Marcum is the one point where I'm really questioning the wisdom of this one here. Hamilton is due back tomorrow, and should produce similar to or better than Beltre from here out, and I definately need saves more than Martin.



Thoughts?


Edit: Accepted trade as it was (3for3). Now trying to figure out who to drop in order to grab my replacement catcher. Thoughts?

As long as Hamilton stays healthy and continues to hit, I like this trade for you. Your staff can take the hit from Marcum.

I think I can probably get him to include another closer type (he's also sitting on K-Rod and Soria, as well as the Cardinals closer du jour) by adding Vladdy to the deal. I've been trying to get him to bite on Hill or Jeter, but he's pretty set at MI so I'm stuck with the pair, it seems.

Good addendum?

I too like this trade for you. Mo Rivera is a saves machine and Hamilton, is a beast. I'd say go for it.

Just accepted the trade offer, but new question:

Do I drop Hill or one of my pitchers to grab the replacement catcher? (A Hill, Melancon, Colon, Vogelsong are the real choices here).

I would drop Vogelsong. I have a hard time believing he will keep pitching this well.
