Just dealt Ellsbury/Hanson for CarGo in a keeper - thoughts?

Postby twistedude » Tue Jul 05, 2011 12:13 pm

I just dealt Ellsbury and Hanson for Cargo in my 14 team roto keeper league, 5x5. We keep 5 players based on the rounds they were drafted in the previous season. Ellsbury was a 2nd rounder, Hanson a 13th rounder, and Cargo a 4th rounder. Cargo will likely replace Asdrubal or Kershaw on my keeper list. My team is comfortably in 1st place, but I wanted to land Cargo for the future. Thoughts on this deal?

Here's my team before the trade:

C: Martin
1B: Votto (3)
2B: Kinsler
3B: Bautista (21)
SS: Asdrubal (15)
IF: Hosmer
LF: Bay
CF: Ellsbury
RF: Boesch
UTIL: J. Weeks
BN: Pierre, Jennings, Snider

SP: Verlander (7), Kershaw (9), Hanson, Bumgarner, E Santana, Dempster, Carrasco, Harden
RP: Papelbon, D. Hernandez
DL: Putz

*keepers are bolded, round value in brackets.

I like the trade for future, getting the 2nd round pick you will have now, but this year losing Hanson hurts your staff.

I agree. Cargo is definitely a great keeper and will help you in the future, but losing Hanson hurts the depth of your pitching staff.



thanks for the help with mine.

You guys don't think I'll "get by" with a staff of Verlander, Kershaw, Bumgarner, Dempster, Carrasco, Harden, E Santana? In a 14 team league? I'm not too worried :)

^^ +1. Hanson's a stud, but CarGo is too. I think your next move should be trying to find someone to replace the hole Hanson's leaving

Just have a nice DL spot warm for Harden......... I think you can get by though. A little concern with Gonzalez and his wrist injury, having problems gripping the bat, but I'm sure that's temporary.
