Help with Votto trade.. leave link for WHIR (always!)

Postby osbtensor » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:21 pm

this is a points only league where pitchers have big returns.

This guy wants a trade... and he's a huge reds fan and is talking about votto. I'm okay with that, but in trading votto i need to get a good return. He's really my only option at
first base for regular production. i have deep selection off of the ww for 1b so here's what i'm thinking..

votto for tulo/santana

or

votto for lester/santana

either way.. drop martin/jeter (maybe morse?) and pickup trumbo or freeman

WW offers the following 1B - dunn, pena, freeman, smoak, trumbo, kotchman, hosmer, wallace, loney, kennedy

Any better deals you would make or think that would benefit myself more in the long run? I think asking for konerko/tulo is too much for one player.. plus i really want to upgrade my catcher situation. he says he likes mccann which makes me think he could be deal breaker if i try snag him. and santana is a definite upgrade over martin.

Currently i'm in first, but i spend most of the time in second and sneak into first every few weeks.

My team

c - r. martin
1b - j. votto, m. morse
2b - i. kinsler, d. espinosa, r. cano
3b - m. young,
ss - d. jeter, e. aybar
of - j. ellsbury, i. suzuki, a. presley, b. gardner

sp - s. marcum, j. beckett, m. buehrle, f. hernandez, a. ogando, c. capuano (streamer), j. vazquez (streamer),
rp - j. valverde, r. madson, s. santos, f. salas, j. walden, j. nathan, m. adams
dl - j. danks, j. johnson

His team

c - b. mccann, c. santana
1b - p. konerko
2b - n. walker
3b - a. beltre
ss - t. tulowitzki
of - c. young, m. cuddyer, j. hamilton
util - d. ortiz
dl - d. wright, s. choo

sp - j. hellickson, m. bumgarner, t. lilly, h. bailey, g. floyd, r. romero, i. kennedy, b. colon, m. leake
rp - c. marmol, b. league, k. gregg
dl - b. anderson, j. lester, c. buchholz

I'd do Votto/Tulo & Santana. I wouldn't even consider the second deal.

Grab Freeman or Pena, probably in that order.

Nah, the first trade you posted is the best one. Votto for Tulo/Santana I'd definitely do if I were the side getting Tulo/Santana. You get a definite upgrade at C and one of, if not THE best, SS's in the game. As far as for who to pick up, go with Freeman. If that guy were any hotter right now he'd be Hansel from Zoolander.

Definitely wouldnt take the second trade, but I would take the first deal since you have a lot of good options on the WW.
I would rank the WW's in this order:
1. Freeman
2. Trumbo ( trumbo and freeman are very close imo )
3. Pena
4. Adam Dunn




thanks for the help with mine

Freeman is hot now, but I think you would miss Votto. I don't know if the upgrades are worth the possible big downgrade at 1B. Can you trade a 2B for pitching instead since that is your team's strength?

I would definitely trade Votto for Tulo/Santana. And on the WW pick up Freeman until he cools down. Then if trumbo is still there, he may be better long term. if not, I like Freeman a LOT.

I like the first trade to get tulo/santana. But don't drop Moorse I'd keep him and pick up Freeman by dropping Martin or Jeter.
