McCann, Chacin, Venters for Heath Bell and Reyes/Bourn

Postby StckFigure » Wed Jun 15, 2011 3:26 pm

I'm being offered Bell and Bourn for McCann, Chacin, and Venters and I'm feeling that I'm paying a bit too much, although currently I have outstanding ERA and WHIP and need help in runs, average, saves and steals (especially steals, where I'm a very distant last place, maybe 20 behind next-to-last). This is a ten-team, NL-only 5x5 roto league, by the way. Am I correct in assuming that the deal is too lopsided against me, and, if so, is it too lopsided in my favor if I ask for Reyes instead of Bourn? If so, what would be a better trade (he's looking for HR, avg, wins, and K's). Concerns I have are that Bell could get traded to the AL and that Venters could end up being the full-time closer for the Braves (although this may not be likely), and that dropping from McCann to Wilson Ramos as my catcher would be a huge loss in production and I'm in the middle of the pack in HRs and average.

My roster:
C - McCann
1B - P. Fielder
2B - D. Descalso
3B - Chris Johnson
SS - R. Theriot
CI - Chipper Jones
MI - S. Schumaker
OF - Corey Hart, Aubrey Huff, Garrett Jones, Allen Craig (DL)
Util - W. Ramos
BN - Freddy Sanchez (for now), Martin Prado (DL)
Actual DL - David Freese
SP - Kyle Lohse, P. Maholm, RA Dickey
RP - J. Venters, J. Axford
P - C. Carpenter, Chacin, C. Narveson
BN - T. Wood
DL - Josh Johnson

His lineup:
C - J. Buck
1B - Carlos Lee
2B - Kelly Johnson
3B - C. Headley
SS - J Reyes
CI - Scott Rolen
MI - M Tejada
OF - H Pence, R Ibanez, A Torres, M Holliday (DL)
Util - M Bourn
SP - Oswalt, Hamels, Lilly
RP - Bell, F. Salas
P - Jimenez, Stauffer, Eduardo Sanchez
BN - Brandon Lyon, Javier Vazquez, Ryan Franklin
DL - v. Padilla

Thank you!

You're giving up too much to get Bell/Bourn. Bell/Reyes makes this a win but I doubt the other owner goes for that.

What if I don't give up Venters, too? That is, McCann + Chacin for Bourn + Bell? (Alternatively, would it be better for me to do McCann + Venters and keep Chacin instead? I think he's more interested in solid SP though)

Actually, he has now come back with the following:

Reyes + Bell + Buck for Chacin + Venters + McCann + Theriot.

This seems really close, and both of us are nearly pulling the trigger. Is Salas a safer bet for me than Bell, though?

I would do that deal, you're getting the best player in the deal with Reyes.
