My Beltre for his Hanson? WHIR!

Postby donald17 » Tue May 31, 2011 5:33 pm

Yahoo 10-team H2H Standard 5x5 Scoring

My Team:

C - Mike Napoli
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Brandon Phillips
3B - Adrian Beltre
SS - Starlin Castro
OF - Matt Kemp
OF - Alex Gordon
OF - Chris Young
UTIL - Aaron Hill
UTIL - Adrian Gonzalez
DL - Jason Heyward

SP - Dan Haren
SP - Francisco Liriano
RP - Carlos Marmol
RP - Jose Valverde
P - Max Scherzer
P - Zach Britton
P - Jhoulys Chacin
P - Jair Jurrjens
BN - Bud Norris
BN - Eric Bedard
BN - Jordan Zimmermann
BN - Kyle McClellan
BN - Andrew Bailey
DL - Brandon Beachy

I'm really lacking a second truly reliable pitcher and I would be able to start Gordon at 3B due to his dual eligibility if I did make the trade. Do you think this trade improves my team? Will be offense be able to survive without Beltre? Thanks.

If I had Hanson I would do that in a second. What pitchers are on your wire?

I like your secondary pitchers but if you're desperate for another top guy that trade might make sense.

Post it on tradebashers and see how the vote comes out. You input the players and league details and everybody votes.

Looking quickly we have:
Lilly
Stauffer
Harang
Baker
Harrison
Arietta
Wolf
McDonald

I was just sorting by Yahoo's default rank and the actual ranking and these are a few of the names that were there

Not too much there........ I hate trading bats for pitchers. If you move Gordon to 3B, who is moving to the OF spot?

Heyward when he returns from the DL. Or I could even keep Gordon in the OF and take a flyer on someone like Lawrie when he gets called up. In addiiton, there are a few names on the WW that could be fine for my OF. Is this trade any better for me if I send Phillips instead of Beltre?

I guess it just matters what the other team needs. I just don't like trading bats for pitchers in one for one deals. I value bats more.

With as many pitchers as you have, I would most definitely NOT trade a bat for an arm. The surplus of pitchers doesn't really give you much to trade with, and you definitely want to hold on to all of your bats since your space is limited. If you can trade 2 pitchers for one, then do so. Otherwise, just watch the wire...

But definitely, I would not do that trade if I were you.

Help on mine?

when Heyward returns you're going to have to replace someone else. I'm not sure I would want to lose Beltre and replace him with Gordon. Gordon has been good, but I'd rather not have him as your only 3B option just in case he slumps.
maybe a better option would be one of your 2B, Hill or Phillips. you could move one of them and use the other at 2B.
ideally you could package one of your 2B along with one of the lower tier starts to get a better SP. I'd trade McClellan. I don;t trust him to last the entire season as a starter coming off seasons as a reliever. if not McClellan, maybe Zimmerman who I imagine will be on an IP limit as the season goes on.
if you do want Hanson, I do think it would take someone like Beltre. Hanson is that good.


help?

If you really want an arm for your bat. You could probably do better than Hanson with Beltre. At least aim for someone in the level of Verlander/Hamels.
