Dynasty Deal: Verlander for Cain/Trout - WHIR

Postby avsfan4ever33 » Wed Jun 22, 2011 6:08 pm

I just made a trade in my 12 team H2H dynasty league. Scoring is 6x6, with OPS and Holds the additional categories. I took over this team before the season and it's currently in last place, unfortunately.

I traded: Matt Cain, Mike Trout
I received: Justin Verlander

My staff was weak beforehand, but now I've got Verlander to go along with King Felix as a sick one-two punch. I disliked giving up a top prospect like Trout, but I've got Chris Young doing well manning CF for me currently and have another top outfield prospect in the pipeline with Desmond Jennings.

Probably a decent deal. Trout could end up a stud, or he could bomb, that's the risk you take. But you got solid value for him I think.

I'm guesing that you are wondering what people think of the trade. I think that you made out well. While a highly regarded prospect, we don't know for sure how Trout is going to do in the long run. Also,just a suggestion, your title to this tread sounds like you gave up Verlander. A trade is usually described in the reverse.

I like the move. Cain probably has his best years behind him. Verlander is putting together his best year this year. It's worth getting the dominant Verlander for a lesser pitcher and a prospect.

With that said, here's the flip side. You play in a H2H, so streaming is more common, making pitching in general slightly less valuable. Verlander also only contributes to 4 of the 6 pitching categories.

i'd say you did alright. It looks like JV is FINALLY putting it all together (look at his last month stats). Trout could be great....or not.

Nice Trade for you

I don't think you can beat yourself up for getting that kind of a stud pitcher for the price of a good pitcher and an unproven guy who may not come up til september and then potentially could be brandon wood.
