Big Trade, Pujols and Braun involved. WHIR

Postby GradySizemore » Sun Aug 07, 2011 8:10 am

Ok so I have been offered Ryan Braun, Troy Tulowitzki and Eric Hosmer for Albert Pujols, Jered Weaver, Mike Stanton and Alexi Rameirez.

Here is my current roster and league scoring. I would really like to acquire Tulo but losing Pujols for Hosmer concerns me a little. It is a Keeper league were we can keep one at each position plus an additional player of our choosing.

1B - A Pujols
2B - D Pedroia
3B - K Youkilis
SS - A Ramirez
OF - C Crawford, M Holliday, M Stanton
Bench - B Abreu , G Sizemore , A Ramirez, P Sandoval, V

P - Cliff Lee, C Hamels, D Fister, J Lester, J Masterson, R Vogelsong, D Storen , E Jackson , H Street , J Weaver , J Hellickson , S Strasburg

10 team H2H points Keeper league.

Are you in contention right now?

I don't like you losing Pujols either but this is a pretty good haul. I like Hosmer a lot and getting Braun and Tulo as keepers is huge. I think I would make that deal.

If you weren't considering keeping Weaver I definitely make this deal. Losing Pujols may hurt a little but you are winning this deal in the other two positions.

Ryan Braun, Troy Tulowitzki and Eric Hosmer ;-D

C- J Mauer
1B - Hosmer
2B - D Pedroia
3B - K Youkilis
SS - T Tulowitzki
OF - C Crawford, M Holliday, R. Braun

Wow what a keeper list.

YOu can potentially move Panda/Aramis for a starter.
I'd do this deal then flip one of Aramis or Panda for a combo of a top closer and mid tier starter with favorable matchups here on. Maybe a Tim Hudson and Heath Bell combo?
