Offer for Beltre

Postby D-backsFan » Fri May 27, 2011 1:13 am

10 team Yahoo 5x5 H2H w/5OF and 2 Util

Was offered my Beltre for his Oswalt and Crisp. Don't really care for it so I'm thinking of countering with my Beltre for his Cole Hamels. Is that fair/even?

If he accepts I would grab someone like one of these guys off the wire for my 2nd Util spot: Seth Smith, Erick Aybar, Chris Coghlan, Todd Helton, Mike Aviles. (Just lost De La Rosa so I have an empty spot on my roster)

If I don't get the trade done I would pick up a SP off the wire like Ervin Santana, Kyle McClellan, Vogelsong, Porcello, Norris

Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

My team:
C-Miguel Montero
1B-Billy Butler
2B-Michael Young
3B-Evan Longoria
SS-Stephen Drew

OF
Carlos González
Matt Kemp
Mike Stanton
Carlos Quentin
Nelson Cruz

Util-Justin Morneau
Util-Adrián Béltre

SP
Alexi Ogando
Yovani Gallardo
Justin Masterson
Matt Garza
Brandon Morrow
Jhoulys Chacin
Ricky Nolasco

Honestly, I'd consider that Oswalt and Crisp trade. You have a couple pitchers that most likely the bottom is going to drop on. Oswalt for Beltre straight up is a pretty fair trade maybe even favoring you and no way is he going to do Hamels for Beltre.

I don't like that staff, but I don't think this trade is good enough. I'd try to up the pitcher returned, maybe give Ogando and an RP to sweeten the deal. Hamels I like as a return and would say yes. I like Oswalt but not quite enough for Beltre.
