Trade options

Postby BigZ38 » Thu Jul 21, 2011 3:36 pm

So there is a guy in my keeper league building for next year, he has David Wright who is coming off the DLsoon. I have Strasburg stashed for cheap and also Hosmer for cheap. I can't play Hosmer because I have Pujols and Teixeira at first and util. Is Strasburg for Wright a fair deal, or should I amp it up to Hosmer and Strasburg. We can only keep guys for 3 years, so he would be able to control Strasburg and Hosmer cheaply for the next two years.

In a keeper, I'd rather own Strasburg than Wright. Likely Hosmer too. Why not try and sell one of your older keepers, I'm looking at TEX...

I'd like to win my league this year though, probably should have posted my team. Adding Wright to replace Rolen would really put my offense over the top I think,

C - Miguel Montero
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Mike Cuddyer
3B - Scott Rolen
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Angel Pagan
OF - Mike Stanton
OF - Vernon Wells
U - Mark Teixiera
BN - Eric Hosmer, Freddie Freeman,
SP - Tommy Hanson, Jordan Zimmerman, Francisco Liriano, Justin Masterson, Eric Bedard, Brandon Beachy, Cory Luebke
RP - Craig Kimbrel, Mark Melacon, Antonio Bastardo, Mike Adams
DL - Stephen Strasburg

12 team, H2H, 6x6 (H Xtra - OBP, P Xtra - H per IP, W per IP, No WHIP)

If you're going for it this year Id be more inclined to trade Zimmerman and Hosmer for Wright.

Zim has been stellar but is on a an IP limit and will probably be shutdown fairly soon whereas Strasburg will just be getting going and could really help you come playoff time.

Mine?

Offered Zimmerman, Freeman and Strasburg for Wright and Chris Carpenter. Strasburg is awesome but he is coming off of TJ and I can only keep four and I have Mike Staton, Hosmer and Kimbrel at $2 for next year, I'm willing to risk Strasburg to bring in the victory $ this year.
