Trade Advice Please WHIR

Postby Mateo de Lorenzo » Sat Jun 04, 2011 8:10 pm

So, I am at the point where I am considering becoming a seller in my 5x5 std roto keeper league.

Should I trade Zimmerman for Matt Joyce and Mike Moustakas? Joyce doesn't really pique my interest for a potential keeper, though I could be persuaded.

Should I ask for more? He also has: Jed Lawrie, Michael Morse, and Brandon Belt.

Any and all thoughts, comments, suggestions, etc. are appreciated and if you leave your link I will gladly help in return.

Thanks

If this is Ryan Zimmerman you'd be giving up, I say no way. I wouldn't trade a proven masher at 3B, for a 3B prospect that hasn't seen an MLB pitch yet. Even though Zim is hurt, if you've held onto him this long, reward yourself for the long wait and give him a couple more weeks. He will be back very soon. While Joyce is having a great year, I think you can get a better return on Zim once he comes back and produces like we're used to.

If keeper is what u want, I'd rather carry Zimmerman into next year. He should be back soon, so even if u want to deal him I'd let him play a few games and raise his stock so u can get better return. I wouldn't deal him for those guys.

Zimm is overrated. 1 good season shouldn't warrant this much respect. He missed 2 months last year and already missed 2 months this year. That being said you can prolly get more for him. Who else does he have aside from Mous and Joyce and the other 3 you mentioned?

Here are the players on his team:

Napoli, Mike
Kendrick, Howard
Turner, Justin
Lowrie, Jed
Morse, Michael
Bourn, Michael
Joyce, Matt
Patterson, Corey
Scott, Luke
Jones, Chipper
Craig, Allen
Moustakas, Mike
Belt, Brandon
Beckett, Josh
Hudson, Tim
Shields, James
Volquez, Edinson
Sanches, Brian
Street, Huston
Thornton, Matt
Bedard, Erik
Nathan, Joe

I've omitted those I cannot keep as keepers going forward.

Oh, and to add to this. Zimmerman will cost me a first round pick next year. Joyce a 20th round and Moustakas a 22nd round.

I'm not sure how many people are in your league but I would never keep Zimmerman with that high of a price tag. 1st round %-6

Joyce would be the better option of the two, but I would try and see if you could maybe get someone else to bite.

I agree. See if there are any other teams interested in him.

Given the price to keep the players, I can see how this deal works in your favor.

You may lose Zimm for this year, but you can get a better pick in the first round than Zimmerman next year anyway. Joyce should have a decent year and MM will be an interesting story.

Given Zimmerman's injury history so far, and his potential to not be himself once he is back, I actually like the trade. The keeper values are just fantastic, especially if Joyce continues to play well. :)

I could suggest you go after someone better than MM, but the trade wouldn't be likely to go through after that. You could also try another manager, but that's another story.

Best of luck with however you play it. ;-D
