Dynasty Trade - Harper for Haren/Ortiz/Bard?

Postby Dragonsmlb » Tue Jun 14, 2011 5:12 pm

10 team dynasty league, keep entire 30 player rosters for as long as you want. (Greatly increases prospect's value!)


I'm stuck in 3-4th place because I'm not pitching any innings (fewest innings, wins and Ks in the league) and my power hitting (HR, RBI) and OF are not performing fully so far this season. 1250 innings cap, which at this pace I won't reach.

I'm considering the following trade:

Bryce Harper for David Ortiz, Dan Haren and Daniel Bard.

I've tried to get Ellsbury or Cliff Lee from this owner instead but he isnt budging. What do you think? I would drop Cuddyer and Eduardo Sanchez in the 3 for 1 deal. I love the idea of sticking Harper next to Braun in 1-2 years... but I want to win now also! Ortiz would bump into the Util slot, Haren into my #2 SP spot and Bard helps with Ratios and covers for Papelbon leaving at the end of the year. Saves are expensive in this league, due to innings cap.

Here's my current team:

C Olivo
1b Pujols
2b Utley
ss alexei ramirez
3b Alex Rodriguez
ci Miguel Cabrera
mi Kelly Johnson
of Ryan Braun
of Angel Pagan
of Brett Gardner
util Michael Cuddyer

bench Eric Hosmer
bench Matt Joyce
bench Jayson Werth
bench Carlos Beltran
bench Jason Bay
bench Neil Walker
bench Bryce Harper
bench Anthony Rendon

DL Mauer
DL Allen Craig

Pitchers

Tim Lincecum
Jhoulys Chacin
Jordan Zimmerman
Francisco Liriano
Trevor Cahill
DL Brett Anderson
DL Adam Wainwright
DL Homer Bailey

Papelbon
Bell
Wilson
Hanrahan
Sergio Santos
Eduardo Sanchez

It's a lot to ask but could you post his roster?? It def doesn't seem like a bad deal because that's a ton to pay for Harper no matter how deep the league is but could you maybe get a bat a little younger than Ortiz?

Yah I was trying to make it Ellsbury instead of the current deal, but no dice.

I am also now discussing Harper for Cole Hamels and Adam Dunn with another owner. I like Cole much more than Haren, but that deal is missing the current pop of Ortiz and the 2012 closer in Bard...

Here's the roster from the first other team

C Russell Martin
1B Ryan Howard
2B Darwin Barney
3B Adrián Béltre
SS Álex González
CI Paul Konerko
MI Maicer Izturis
OF Jacoby Ellsbury
OF Michael Bourn
OF Johnny Damon
Util David Ortiz
BN Yunel Escobar
BN Orlando Cabrera
BN Justin Smoak
BN Lonnie Chisenhall
DL Jason Kubel

SP Dan Haren
SP Cliff Lee
RP Huston Street
RP Kyle Farnsworth
P Daniel Bard
P Frank Francisco
P Mark Melancon
P Jonathan Sánchez
P Brandon Morrow
BN Julio Teherán
BN Shelby Miller
BN Chris Sale
BN Johnny Cueto
BN Brandon Lyon
DL Jorge De La Rosa

With only 10 teams in the league + your very deep bench, I'd hang onto Harper. Ortiz is on his last legs while Haren isn't a spring chicken anymore. With as volatile as the closer position is, you'll always be able to pickup several guys each year to help you get saves. Seriously, a prospect driven dynasty like your league demands you get more Bryce.

Thanks for the feedback! What kinds of deals have you seen for Harper so far? Where do you think the benchmark for a good Harper deal would be?

As I said above, I'm also talking to someone about Cole Hamels and Adam Dunn. Good enough? Not enough?

I do want a top OF most of all, but those are hard to pry loose... and I know, I know, thats the very reason I own Harper!

I'm still considering this trade, and would really like some more feedback from you guys.

Would you rather do this trade, or try to work a Cole Hamels / Andrew Bailey for Harper deal? That one doesn't include the bat, but it provides a current closer that would let me flip a closer like papelbon for a bat (I'm leading saves by 10).

Basically my question is this: How much should a team get for Bryce Harper in order to pull the trigger right now?
