Konerko for King Felix & Pena?? WHIR

Postby lyons595 » Sat Jun 11, 2011 4:48 pm

I give Konerko, my best bat (right now) for King Felix and Carlos Pena.

DOes adding Felix make my pitching good enough to lose Konerko? I'd be selling high and Pena should make up some of the HR, RBI.
I could also add another bat from the FA pool (Dunn< laRoche, Lee, Loney, Kennedy, Wallace, LaPorta, G Jones, and a few more).

ESPN, h2h, 16 team, 3 RP max, daily roster changes. Cats: standard 5x5 plus OBP, QS. Non-keeper. I stream 1-2 SP weekly.

I wouldn't give up Felix for Konerko straight up, so, yes, if you can get Felix & Pena, go for it, and then decide if Pena is the best fit for your team.

I wouldn't do the trade. Your offense is weak already and taking Konerko out will make it even worse.

If you do this trade your offense will be major trash, save a couple players. Pena will not fill Konerko's hole if you trade him. I dont think you need to upgrade pitching. You have two spots reserved for streaming so all you need to do is pick the right ones!

Good luck

Agree with the other posters. If I were you, I would be trying to trade some of your pitching for hitting, not the other way around.

Advice please http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=433095

You definitely need to try and trade for some hitting.

This trade pretty much weakens your hitting alot but I'm not really sure if trading any of your pitching is the answer with Brett Anderson having shoulder problems and not pitching well and other than Bucholz and Marcum your SP isn't that deep of course that might be the case with a 16 team league.

You could try Baker for some hitting 2B and 3B appear to be your weakest positions hitting wise

UPDATE
By trying to make it easier, it is getting more complicated. Long story short:
I give: Konerko, Alex Gordon
I get: Felix Hernandez, Youkilis

ESPN, h2h, 16 team, 3 RP max, daily roster changes. Cats: standard 5x5 plus OBP, QS. Non-keeper. I stream 1-3 SP weekly.

I like you getting Felix in this deal, but I think you are giving up a little too much to only be getting Youk. See if he can offer you someone a little better.
