Seems I am a bad trader

Postby Ratdog90 » Wed Jul 27, 2011 12:26 pm

Would love some input. In a mixed deep league, 5x5 H2H, 29 active roster spots, we keep 5 every year, no penalty

A trade I accepted was veto'd this morning and I was trashed in the process, being called the destroyer of the league. U decide:

I am out of the playoffs. Thinking about my keepers for next year.

I was offered:
Wright
Snider
Zambrano

I gave up:
Lind
G. Gonzalez
Hanrahan
Luebke

My thinking: I was getting a more consistent keeper in Wright over Lind. I do have a man-crush on Snider and felt that off-set the Goanzalez/Luebke part of the deal. I would have probably dropped Zambrano (hate him). So to me the lopsidedness may have come into play from having hanrahan part of the deal. I don't keep closers or SP's so since I was getting potentially 2 keepers (Snider would have to finish really strong), I pulled the trigger. What do you think?

Snider is having a down season and may be out of the starting line-up with Rasmus coming in and Zambrano is always iffy. That said, it's not an awful deal and everybody has players that they would love to acquire (like Snider for you) so I can see why you would want to do it. I wouldn't but you'd be getting the best player in the deal and that's always a solid argument.
Jay Bruce is mah franchize. I love you Chris Davis!
