Interested in Making a Trade for Ethier...WHIR

Postby studepaber » Thu Jun 23, 2011 4:17 pm

In a H2H points league, sort of hurting in average and RBIs now and had a guy throw out Ethier as an OF option, he's ranked about 24th in OFers with our point system, but I think he may pick it up some. So is Ethier someone I should target and should I target anyone else on him team? I just picked up Hanley and would be willing to trade him (it's a keeper league but theres few players with contracts on our teams). Anyone have any ideas for trade offers?

My team

C Olivo
1 Fielder
2 Weeks
3 Sandoval
S Hanley
O McCutchen
O C Young
O Gordon
U Rios (just picked him up and dropped Melky)
SP Verlander
SP Kennedy
SP Norris
SP Scherzer
SP Vogelsong
SP Bedard
RP C Perez
RP Storen
RP Axford

Players im interested in on his team...
Ethier, MCab, Cano, Gallardo

Ethier should be easily the cheapest of the guys you are looking at and I think he should help you in average. RBI maybe but not a ton. Your pitching looks good so maybe you could swing a Vogelsong for Ethier? You could shoot higher and try Weeks/Kennedy for Cano. Maybe try Gordon/Vogelsong for Gallardo? I would say the key point is to try to squeeze some value out of Vogelsong or make a nice 2-1 deal where you get the better player. Throw some offers at him and see what he thinks.

Well one of the players I do have a contract on is Kennedy, $1 for 3 years, so probably a no on him. If I could get Gallardo and Ethier together that would be great, now just have to figure out what to offer...

So I was offered ethier, polanco and hellickson (pretty sure he has a 2 or 3 year $1 contract) for my Hanley,sandoval (he has 2 years left for $23 ugh) and vogelsong. Should I counter replacing hellickson for gallardo or should I not sell so low on Hanley?

That deal isn't close. You are paying for what exactly with Ethier? He doesn't do too much. You need to swap Polanco for a better hitter. I actually like the idea of having Hellickson in the deal, so I would keep Hellickson/Ethier in there and just replace Polanco. If you exchange for Gallardo, it's not a good deal at all, you'd still need to upgrade Polanco, but you couldn't likely get much more.

He has a contract on cano never mind.....

Edit: I'm now leaning toward ethier and hellboy or gallardo or Hanley and bedard or vogelsong, how does this look?

If you can get Ethier and Gallardo for your Hanley and Vogelsong I think this is a good trade, he might not do that though. You will be selling high on Vogelsong which is a big plus, cause I dont think he will be able to keep these kind of numbers up the whole season. And Hanley doesnt seem like he is on board this season.
Gallardo is a much more proven pitcher and he also racks up a lot of K's.

He ended up proposing Hanley/Bedard for Ethier/Hellickson and I accepted. I like Ethier for the average and Hellickson for the contract through next year.
