Trade for Reyes? Give up picks next year?

Postby KaPluie » Mon Aug 01, 2011 1:05 pm

I'm in a keeper league (keep 3, give up the round you picked the player in), and the last place team is looking to aquire picks and/or keepers. I've been thinking about this deal:

I give up my Peralta + 5th round pick, for his Reyes and 19th round pick. I already have Andrus and Gardner, so this would solidify my speed and runs category, at the expense of RBIs and HRs. I'm currently in 3rd place, only a couple games out of first. My offense is pretty deep, so there isn't really that much room, and Peralta has been very productive for me.

Here is my team:
League: 12 teams, Daily H2H, 6x6, Keeper (3 players)
Roster Size: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL

Batter Scoring: R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG
Pitching Scoring: W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, Quality Starts

C - Alex Avila (C, current YRank=238)
1B - Joey Votto (1B, 18)
2B - Michael Young (1B/2B/3B, 27)
3B - Dan Uggla (2B, 246)
SS - Elvis Andrus (SS, 59)
OF - Alex Gordon (3B/OF, 33)
OF - Matt Holliday (OF, 80)
OF - Brett Gardner (OF, 88)
Utility - Jhonny Peralta (3B/SS, 66)
Bench - Melky Cabrera (OF, 19)
Bench - Corey Hart (OF, 219)

SP - Cole Hamels (SP, 13)
SP - Johnny Cueto (SP, 39)
RP - Jonathan Papelbon (RP, 126) (closer)
RP - Jose Valverde (RP, 153) (closer)
P - Sergio Santos (RP, 103) (closer)
P - Joe Nathan (RP, 344) (closer)
P - Tim Stauffer (SP/RP, 172)
Bench - Anibal Sanchez (SP, 196)
Bench - Francisco Liriano (SP, 705)
Bench - Aaron Harang (RP, 248)

I like this deal..... Was just wondering what round Reyes was picked in. Since you will be loosing a 5th, (2nd round in your draft)

It is actually still the 5th round (for example, this season I picked Liriano :( in the 5th round). The way our keepers work, is you lose the round you picked a guy in the previous year ... so the keepers are pretty spread out throughout the 21 total rounds. Reyes was picked in the 2nd round last year, so I'd have to give up a 2nd round pick next year if I wanted to keep him.

I still like it then. Reyes could easily be considered the best SS next year which would put him in the first couple rounds of any draft.
