Chris Carpenter Deal WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Aug 01, 2011 3:12 pm

Chris Carpenter is in his last keeper year on a team way out of the playoff picture. What is a good offer for him? See my team below, and note that I plan on keeping: Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, Hanley Ramirez, Jacoby Ellsbury, Roy Halladay, and ONE of Wright/Pedroia OR King Felix. So I have guys who are attractive keepers. BUT I don't want to hamstring my offense too much, so a 2 for 1 would be ideal.

12 Team H2H. We Only Keep 6 Players Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means contract year

Stat Cats: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

MY TEAM (pending processing of recent trade):

C V. Martinez
1B M. Cabrera
2B D. Pedroia
3B D. Wright
SS H. Ramirez
OF J. Ellsbury
OF C. Crawford*
OF D. Ackley
UT P. Fielder
UT E. Bonifacio
UT D. Ackley
BN D. Freese
BN B. Lawrie - (waiting for him to be called up)
DL C. Gonzalez - Due back (hopefully) in a week
DL I. Davis
DL A. Rodriguez - Due back mid August

SP R. Halladay
SP F. Hernandez
SP T. Hanson
RP J. Walden
RP S. Santos
P M. Cain
P Z. Greinke*
P Y. Gallardo
BN W. Rodriguez
BN B. Beachy
BN M. Harrison
DL J. Sanchez

Your team is loaded!

As for a trade, you need to give him a keeper for him to think it's worth it. If he likes A-Rod, go A-Rod and Wandy (or Beachy). You have Wright at 3B anyway in a strong lineup...while Carpenter definitely beats Wandy or Beachy (I pref. to trade Beachy, possible innings cap).

Do you like any of these trades? viewtopic.php?t=435887

I would try a combo of Ackley, Bonifacio and Lawrie to start with. These guys are young and might tempt him if his keepers are pretty bad.
