Important trade (WHIR)

Postby VitiumCloud » Sun May 29, 2011 10:58 am

Nine team, 6x6 roto league. Runs, RBI, AVG, OPS, Steals, & HR + Wins, ERA, WHIP, Saves, Holds, & Strikeouts. My team is;

Cather: VMart
1st: Miggy C
2nd: The Laser Show
SS: Alexi Rameriez
3rd: ARod
OF: Curtis Granderson
OF: CarGo
OF: Matt Joyce
Util: Coco Crisp
Util: Grady Sizemore
Bench: Alex Gordon
Bench: A Huff
Bench: Starlin Castro
DL: Posey
DL: Sandoval

SP: Clayton Kershaw
SP: Justin Verlander
SP: Jamie Garcia
RP: Mariano Rivera
RP: Johnny Venters
P: JJ Putz
P: Grant Balfour (for now)
Bench: Anibal Sanchez
Bench: Mat Latos
Bench: Bud Norris
Bench: Matt Capps
Bench: Liriano



I am giving: Joyce, Gordon, Castro & Sandoval for Andre Either and Mike Stanton.

The real variable in this equation is Either's ability to recover from injury and Joyce's ability to stay consistant. Let me hear your thoughts.....

Almost any time you can give up four players for two, you're in a good position. With only nine teams, I think the most important variable is who's available on your waiver wire/free agent pool. I say go for it. You're getting two solid guys.

I would say hold on this deal your giving up way to much in this deal. Sandoval and Castro are the two most valuable player in the deal because they play SS and 3B two week positions. Id take them out and just deal the two for either Stanton or Ethier. I feel like thatd benefit you more and is fair value due to Ethiers injury history.

I would have to agree with the first reply - it's a good option to have if you can trade 4 for 2, but then it depends on who's available on the WW. There has to be a reason you want to trade 4 for 2. You're losing bench batters that could come in handy should there be injuries or in the case of Ethier, an extended slump...

Solid trade if u have deep free agent pool to work with. But I would try to see if you can Just do Stanton for Joyce and Gordon. I like Castro and Sandoval will be back soon. Ethier could be great or have the injury nag him.

Help me?

I like this trade for you. Given that it's a 9 team league the two guys you add from the waiver wire should be decent. Please see mine:

I have Ramirez at SS... who I think is the better of the two and no one will ever see playing time at 3rd cause I have ARod. I'm trying to consolidate my bench, I just want to make sure I get fair value. Also, I'm basically trying to throw Sandoval away because a wrist injury is not good for hitting.

I kind of like this move for you Stanton is a solid player and considering Sandoval is occupying a DL spot for you and is injured I like this move bench hitters can always be replaceable and often you aren't using them much and you can easily replace those.
