Too much for Doc?

Postby Fantasy GM » Thu Aug 11, 2011 1:40 am

Trade deadline is tomorrow. 12-team H2H points keeper league (4 players). My team has clinched a playoff spot and I have discussed the following trade with another team:

I GET: OF Stubbs, SP Halladay, SP Floyd, RP B. Wilson
I GIVE: OF Granderson, SP Hanson, SP Billingsley, RP Hanrahan

I am mulling whether I pursue this trade or not. Having Halladay and Lee (roster below) anchor my rotation through the playoffs and entering 2012 is a dream, but is it worth the cost? IMO, this hinges on my level of comfort with Hanson. He was deemed healthy today, but has been struggling recently. Hanson at his usual goodness gives me little reason to do the deal. However, Halladay at his best > everyone because of the points he scores (H2H points emphasize innings pitched/quality starts/complete games, etc.).

C - Avila
1B - Pujols
2B - Lawrie
3B - Youkilis
SS - Peralta
OF - Ellsbury/Granderson/Zobrist
UTL - Freeman
BE - Phillips (DTD)

SP (12 starts/week) - Lee/Cain/Hanson/T.Hudson/A.Sanchez/Kuroda/Billingsley/Lilly/Dickey
RP (can start up to 4, holds count) - Kimbrel/Hanrahan/Bastardo/Romo

Floyd pushes and cancels Bills. I'd rather have Wilson (way more proven). Stubbs is no slouch himself and will continue to put out HR/SB even if his BA leaves a bit to be desired. Go get halladay and don't look back. Hanson sure is struggling right now but there are very few true fantasy aces in the game on the level of halladay.

OF Stubbs, SP Halladay, SP Floyd, RP B. Wilson ;-D

You getting the better end of this deal with Hallady in the trade. You're getting Stubbs to replace Grandy. Floyd is solid and you're improving with Wilson over Hanahran. Good trade. ;-D

With your points system, Halladay is clearly the best player in the deal. I say pull the trigger.

I agree with everybody else. I long year could be wearing on Hanson, Doc will eliminate any doubt. Play now and pull the trigger. Plus, I don't think it hurts your future much, if at all, either.
