Keeper League - Braun for Hamilton Trade

Postby Nats81 » Thu Jun 16, 2011 10:34 am

Hi Everyone, this is my first post and I would love some feedback on the trade proposed below. Do you think the 12th place team is giving up to much?

I have tried to provide as much information as possible, but of course will provide more if needed. Just let me know.

------------

League Type: Roto – 12 team keeper league
Leage Settings: 5x5 – Avg, Runs, Rbis, SBs, HRs, WHIP, ERA, Saves, Wins, K’s
Auction draft. 25 man rosters – 3DL Spots. $260 in auction funds
Players can be kept for a progressive increase from the amount they are drafted at. 1st year = $2 increase, 2nd year = 4$, 3rd year = $6, and so on.
Main players involved: Josh Hamilton (drafted in 09 for $13. Will be $19 in 2012)
Ryan Braun (drafted in 11 for $39. Will be $41 in 2012)

Offer: 5th place team is attempting to make a run at 2011. He has offered the 12th place team Josh Hamilton for Ryan Braun and an additional mid-range player (B. League is being discussed). 5th place team justifies the additional player by saying that difference between Braun’s remaining 2011 production and Hamilton’s remaining 2011 production won’t be enough to put him into the money. 5th place also says that Hamilton can be kept for $25 in 2013 and possibly even $33 in 2014.
5th place teams roster:
C Miguel Montero
1B Paul Konerko
2B Aaron Hill
3B Chone Figgins
SS Starlin Castro
CI Albert Pujols
MI Dan Uggla
OF Corey Hart
OF Josh Hamilton
OF Álex Ríos
OF Coco Crisp
Util Mitch Moreland
BN Maicer Izturis
BN Ichiro Suzuki
BN Vernon Wells
DL Pedro Alvarez
SP A.J. Burnett
SP Paul Maholm
RP Sergio Santos
RP Mark Melancon
P Matt Capps
P Jair Jurrjens
P Dillon Gee
P Jesse Crain
BN Jon Lester
BN Daniel Hudson
DL Jake Peavy
DL Brandon Webb

12th is starting to punt this year and look towards next. Is Braun PLUS another player (B. League) giving up too much to get Hamilton and $22 in auction funds for 2012?

12th place teams roster:
C Miguel Olivo
1B Eric Hosmer
2B Robinson Canó
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS Ian Desmond
CI Aramis Ramírez
MI Alexi Casilla
OF Ryan Braun
OF Carlos Quentin
OF Michael Morse
OF Michael Brantley
Util Adam Dunn
BN Derek Jeter
BN Jason Kubel
BN Jesus Montero
DL Ike Davis
SP Chris Carpenter
SP Edinson Vólquez
RP Leo Núñez
RP Brandon League
P Ryan Dempster
P Fernando Salas
P Hiroki Kuroda
P James McDonald
BN Brandon Morrow
BN Josh Johnson
DL Adam Wainwright
DL David Aardsma

Absolutely not. I would think that is a fair trade if Hamilton is worth it in your league (based on braun's price, he may be). That is an ideal current year for next year trade. And vetoes have no place in a fantasy league, and even less place in a keeper league.

Please help with mine (also involving keepers and Josh Hamilton):

Thansk Baegames. I am still mulling the offer. I just cant get over trading braun and league for hamilton, but the keeper value is nice.

Anyone else have an opinion? Am I a fool for taking or not taking that deal?

I'd have to stay with Braun over Hamilton, even with the massive difference in keeper price. I believe Ryan Braun is about to supplant Albert Pujols as the best player in fantasy for the next five years or so.
