Trade CarGo for Pence/V-Mart/Putz/Nathan/Nolasco?

Postby KSChris » Mon Aug 01, 2011 7:05 pm

This is for a long-term keeper league.. 16 teams, h2h format.

I am being offered a package of Hunter Pence, V-Mart, JJ Putz, Joe Nathan, and Ricky Nolasco for what is essentially just CarGo, Buck, and whatever players I drop to make the player exchange even, which would probably be guys like Ludwick, Vazquez, Pestano, or Lannan.

I think he wants CarGo, Buck, Ludwick, Vazquez.

My team right now is:

C - Joe Buck
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Neil Walker
3B - David Wright
SS - Alexei Ramirez
OF - Jacoby Ellsbury
OF - Jose Bautista
OF - Michael Bourn
UT - Carlos Quentin
DL - Carlos Gonzalez

BN - Ryan Ludwick
BN - Danny Valencia
BN - Hideki Matsui


SP - Cole Hamels
SP - Dan Haren
SP - Michael Pineda
SP - Ervin Santana
SP - Mat Latos
RP - Vinnie Pestano
RP - Al Alburquerque
RP - Jesse Crain
DL - Adam Wainwright

BN - Jeff Karstens
BN - John Lannan
BN - Javier Vazquez
BN - Carlos Martinez


For comparison's sake, CarGo is $19, while Pence would only be $8 and V-Mart $11 if I chose to keep them.

Right now, my keepers are:

$26 Fielder
$40 Wright
$14 Ellsbury
$19 CarGo
$1 Bautista
$38 Hamels
$16 Pineda
$10 Wainwright
$7 Latos
$1 Martinez




Should I do this? The only positive I can see is the significant upgrade at catcher, because Buck sucks, and getting saves again from Putz/Nathan after I had previously decided to punt them.. but the dropoff from CarGo to Pence seems huge to me. I can't decide.

If you have a chance to win this year, I would take this deal and run. I don't think the dropoff from CarGo to Pence (now in a much better lineup) is that far at all, especially with CarGo hurt (yes, I know he comes back this week).
