Trade Halladay for Tulo?

Postby speedy27 » Wed Dec 28, 2011 11:51 pm

I've been offered T.Tulowitski for R.Halladay in a 12 team H2H keeper league. We start 5 SP so I'm leaning against this deal.

Plan to keep Howard, Phillips, Longoria, C.Crawford, n.Cruz, J.Hamilton, Bautista, Halladay, Sabathia and Bumgarner. If that helps...

Standard keeper; I'd do it.

I'm not sure what you mean by you 'start 5 SP'. Is it weekly lineups?? Or do you just have 5 SP slots available each day? Either way I think I'd take Tulo, your offense is essentially set, and you can spend the early non-keeper rounds building the rest of your staff after Sabathia and Bumgarner.

unless SP score more than top hitters I'd have no problem taking this. The SP pool is extremely deep this year and you've got a good 1-2 punch starting out.

Take Tulo. In H2H Tulo can help win a few categories 6 days a week and Halladay can only help 1-2 days a week.

Shouldn't even be a contest here unless this is a points league that favors SP.

Tulo over Halladay 100%. Can't go wrong nabbing the clear cut best SS in baseball.

12 team 7x7 (add OBP, TB and IP, Holds) H2H keeper league (10 keepers)...we start 5 SP's and 5 RP's. we also have a Minor League roster to stash away players.

Thanks for all of the advice..it's going to be tough to part with Halladay but I think I too should go with an everyday player. No to mention younger.

If IP is a category you just need to fill your entire bench with SP and start as many per week as possible. That devalues Halladay, IMO, unless you have a start or IP limit weekly. This strengthens the argument for Tulo even more for me, provided I'm reading this right.

Agreed. Tulo. Esp because of the difference in ages and the fact Hanley's moving off short. Is it even worth keeping Howard w/ his injury and decreasing stats? Do you have other options?

Please help w/ mine! http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=437739

Definitely Tulo here. Your pitching still will be solid with CC and Bumgarner leading the way.
