McCutchen/Weeks for Felix/J. Upton

Postby Saltydog » Mon Jul 25, 2011 3:51 pm

So I make this deal to try to win now?

I've been offered Felix Hernandez and Justin Upton for Andrew McCutchen and Rickie Weeks.

5x5 mixed 10 team roto league. I'm currently 3rd, and he's 7th.

I have McCutchen in his last year as a keeper at $12 and Weeks is $18. Felix at $34 and Upton at $23.

I'd dump Ethier $18 to give me some room to fit under a $275 cap. Here's my current roster:

C- Ramos $2, Santana $7
1B- Hosmer $1
2B- Phillips $21
SS- A. Escobar $8
3B- Longoria $30
MI- Zobrist $13
Ci- Zimmerman $26
OF- Braun $32, Ethier $18, Gardner $19, Gordon $6, Jennings $9
DH- Ortiz $15

SP- Marcum $16, Wilson $14, Beckett $14, Shields $11, Harrison $1, Leubke $1
RP- League $4, Melancon $1
P- Pineda $1

Bench- Belt $1, Maybin $8, Weeks $18, McCutchen $12, Cain $19, Chacin $5, C. Perez $18

I like the trade but I dont like the idea of you just having to dump Ethier. Is there no way you can deal him for a draft pick?

Yeah, hope you don't mean to drop Ethier str8 up. Package him and another for at least a MI prospect...

Didn't dump Ethier, but had to cut C. Perez due to league rules.

Anyone over $17 can not be benched for 3 weeks straight. I couldn't find a way to fit him in so I dropped him for M. Adams. I'm not rooting hard for a Heath Bell trade.

Well Heath Bell should be traded before the deadline so this won't be too bad for you. I definitely like the idea of you having to drop Perez of Ethier.
