I just traded away Pujols

Postby copter » Fri Jun 17, 2011 8:44 pm

I pulled the trigger on a big deal today for a team I took over about a month ago. Here is the trade and my roster below. As you can see, I was always sitting a very good SS because neither Fielder nor Pujols would ever be sat. This was frustrating me since I seem to always choose the wrong SS to start. I tried trading one of them away for a decent SP, but I wasn't getting anywhere fast with that approach so I decided to do a major shakeup to imporve my weakest areas. Appreciate your thoughts ont he trade and what else you would do to improve my team. This is a Yahoo H2H 8+7 category redraft league.

I gave:
Albert Pujols
Marco Scutaro
Randy Wolf

I got:
Ian Kinsler
Matt Cain
Jair Jurrjens


My roster before the deal:
C - Miguel Olivo
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Marco Scutaro
3B - Ryan Zimmerman
SS - Elvis Andrus
LF - Matt Joyce
CF - Andrew McCutchen
RF - Justin Upton
OF - Mitch Moreland
UT - Prince Fielder
BN - Dustin Ackley (LF only eligibility for now)
BN - Starlin Castro

SP - Jeremy Hellickson
SP - Jhoulis Chacin
SP - Hiroki Kuroda
SP - Josh Collmenter
RP - Mariano Rivera
RP - Carlos Marmol
P - Neftali Feliz
BN - Carlos Carrasco
BN - Jake Westbrook
BN - Randy Wolf
BN - Kyle McClellan

Well your pitching certainly did need help and you got help with Cain and Jurrgens. You got 3 solid players in return, but I think you could have gotten maybe 1-2 more solid/good players.

Sorry, but you got rooked. Pujols should have gotten you a lot more than that.

I'm curious to know the combination of players you guys feel I should have gotten for Pujols.

I would have have much rather deal Fielder than Pujols. Castro as your new Util? I think I'd rather have Fielder there. Sorry man but you got hosed.

As for whom you should have targeted...Halladay or Lincecum would have been a start
C-Santana
1B-Gonzalez
2B-Uggla
3B-Zimmerman
SS-Reyes
OF-Hamilton/Beltran/McCutchen
Util-Heyward/MCab/Berkman
Bench-Dom Brown/Moustakas/Aybar

SP-Halladay/Sabathia/Beckett/Shields/Hamels/Peavy
RP-Marmol/Paplebon/Valverde/League/Feliz

I likely could have traded Pujols straight up for Halladay but received nothing else in the deal. I feel that I got more than Halladay value. Obviously I would have preferred to deal Fielder, but there's no way I would have gotten this deal done with Fielder.

I think Fielder or Pujols could have netted more.... You are addressing your needs, but like others, I think you missed on some value. Good luck!
