if one were to give up Miguel Cabrera... WHIR 100%

Postby RUnited » Sun May 29, 2011 9:55 am

If I give up Miguel Cabrera, I think I should be able to get almost anyone in the league. Who should I try to get to improve this team?

I'm a shallow points league, no keeper. Here's my line up:

B Montero
1 MCab
2 Pedroia
3 Beltre
SS Rollins
OF Bautista
OF Bruce
OF Crawford
Util Ellsbury
BN Konerko
BN Choo
DL Zimmerman

SP: Weaver, Ubalda, Chacin, Nolasco, Daniel Hudson, Jaime Garcia, CJ Wilson
RP: Marmol, Street, Madson, Feliz

I think I can stick Konerko in at 1st base and trade away MCab to improve other areas. I'm wasting Konerko points on the bench as I can't get a good trade for Konerko...

To my eyes, it seems my team is weak in starting pitchers. Question is:

1) If I go for pitchers, do I simply aim for a straight swap with Halladay? Is that worth a straight swap? If not Halladay, who else should I target?
2) If I go for batting... Who should I aim for to improve my team? I think I'm pretty good on batting, so I'm not sure who to target if I'm willing to give up MCab.

In a league like this, I think Cabrera for Halladay straight up is not only a fair deal but also one that'd help your team the most. If you can get that deal, and slide Konerko/Choo in, go for it.

Failing that, Cabrera for Tulo's a good option, too. I wouldn't necessarily say do Cabrera/Rollins straight for Tulo, but, if you can do Cabrera/Rollins for Tulo and, say, Cahill, Beckett, Latos, I think that's a good deal for your needs, too.

He's got Tulo, Halladay, Cahill, and Hamels on his team...

I prefer Hamels over Cahill. Do you think he'll bite Miggy + Rollins for Tulo + Hamels? Is that a fair trade...?

I don't think you are going to get the best value by trading for a SS. I would rather go for a monster amount of production like Miggy for CarGo and Stanton or Joyce, etc. Or if you really wanna go the SS way, I would rather get someone like Asdrubal, who can possibly have another big name tacked on with the trade.

If I were the manager with Halladay and you offered me Cabrera straight up I would take it in a second......... Hitters in my book are always more valuable than pitchers, pitchers show up during the season all the time, but 1st round talent like Cabrera do not. The second offer Cabrera/Rollins for Tulo/Hamels is a step in the better direction.

I think he gets the better end of this trade.

Those are the words of a seasoned fantasy baseball manager... Well put.

I'm in a bit of a pickle right now... I managed to add Crawford, Bautista, Ellsbury and Bruce to my team over the last month or so.

This has forced me to drop Victorino and put Konerko and Choo on the bench.

Seeing that Konerko may possibly have another career year, I don't want to lose him to a cheap trade. If I can use Konerko in 1st base and trade Miggy for a good deal I think I should do it.

My pitching is among the weakest in the league at the moment so Halladay is obviously my first thought...

If anyone has other ideas, please suggest!

I agree that muggy for halladay is suspect because ud be giving up a dominant bat. I'd rather get a late 1st/ early 2nd round bat and an ace like Lester to help your teams pitching while still retaining good offense.
