Let go of Konerko? WHIR!!!!!

Postby Zain1two3 » Wed Jun 15, 2011 8:45 pm

I'm in a standard H2H mixed league non keeper, with the following team below. I've just completed a trade that should show my lineup as follows. I thought that, with Sandoval and hopefully Heyward coming back, I can afford to give up some hitters to acquire a top pitcher. Paul Konerko and Trevor Cahill for Justin Verlander and Raul Ibanez. Is that a good deal for me? Here is my team

My team:
C Matt Wieters (Bal - C)
1B Paul Konerko (CWS - 1B)
2B Aaron Hill (Tor - 2B)
3B Alberto Callaspo (LAA - 2B,3B)
SS Troy Tulowitzki (Col - SS)
OF Jacoby Ellsbury (Bos - OF)
OF Matt Joyce (TB - OF)
OF Logan Morrison (Fla - OF)
Util Corey Hart (Mil - OF)
Util Brett Gardner (Tor - OF)
Util Michael Brantley (Cle - OF)

SP Trevor Cahill (Oak - SP)
SP Cliff Lee (Phi - SP)
SP Jhoulys Chacin (Col - SP,RP)
SP Bartolo Colón (NYY - SP)DL
RP Brian Wilson (SF - RP)
RP Kyle Farnsworth (TB - RP)
RP Eric O'Flaherty (Atl - RP)
BN Jason Heyward (Atl - OF)DL
DL Pablo Sandoval (SF - 1B,3B)DL
BN Roy Halladay (Phi - SP)
DL Brandon Beachy (Atl - SP)DL

My pitching staff is quite strong, but trust me, there's a stronger team with a larger bunch of strong pitchers who is currently perched in 1st place in my league and running away with it too!

I know hitting is tough to come by, and Konerko has been RIDICULOUS and I don't think I'd be selling him high, I expected these numbers from him despite his age and what people have said about him coming in to this season. Bottom line, I can move Sandoval to 1st base and not take the hit in 1B, plus there are other 1B that can fill the void. So should I do this trade?

You definitely upgraded your pitching staff by receiving Verlander. I think you should of been able to get a better OF then Ibanez tho, but if you can afford to give up some offense it should work out for you. Verlander is having an unbelievable year.

Great trade. I think Ibanez can be a throw away player and you still win this one.
