Trade Help Please! (WHIR)

Postby JoeFace'd » Tue Jul 19, 2011 7:47 pm

Awesome site- can't believe I just landed here!

I'm in a 12 team dynasty league that has a farm component. We have a points based scoring system. I've dropped too far out of contention to make a big playoff push so I'm thinking of doing a little bit of selling. I've been offered Julio Teheran and either Chacin, Trumbo, Gaby Sanchez, Buccholz or Ethier. I posted my roster and current farm. I'm leaning towards doing the deal - I won't win this year and I can rebuild next year around my young pitching and hopefully new infusion of talent. Any thoughts and advice are appreciated!

Welcome to the Cafe. :-)

The idea of Teheran and one of the other guys sounds nice, but what is the deal? O:-)

Not a bad deal for this style..You could probably get a little more but not too far off i think..

I like Sanchez or Ethier as other player...probably leaning toward Sanchez due to Youth and your current depth at OF.

help? viewtopic.php?t=435284

I agree, with your setup, I'd probably make the trade as well. Though I'd go with Ethier, even though you have depth in the OF, he's the best player listed and probably the best piece to use in another trade down the line.

I agree with making the deal and choosing Sanchez too. ;-D

Thanks all for the help. The deal got reworked a little over the past few hours. As it stands now I traded Lee for Gaby Sanchez, C Buchholz and Drew Pomeranz.

Ethier is overrated.
Sanchez, Teheran, and Buchholz would have been a great return.
But its not like he robbed you.
Just love the Teheran.

Yea I really wanted Teheran too but he decided he didn't want to move him. I'm hopefully going to make some more moves to build up a younger talented team.

The past few years I've been a fringe playoff team always missing out. I think I need to go young and be productive for more years. Would anyone think it's okay to field offers on Bautista? Or should I keep him and hope he keeps up the pace for the next few seasons?
