Dynasty(Semi) - 25 Keepers + Trade Offer

Postby stlcards02 » Thu Dec 29, 2011 1:06 am

This is a deep dynasty with deep benches and a 25 man minor league roster. Here's what I got for guys I could keep, needing some help with that and an offer. This is the first offseason in which we are keeping 25 from our roster, and a true dynasty from there on out. H2H Pts league 16-teams, no restrictions on keepers. Prospects with AB/Innings limits.I left off some others like some relief guys and older players I'm not keeping.

The obvious ones are marked, it's mainly for my bench that I could use some advice. Need 7 from the remaining players. *

C- none
1B- G Sanchez*
2B- Kendrick*
SS- Y Escobar*
3B-
IF- A Lind*
OF- Crawford*
OF- Pence*
OF- D Brown*
OF- J Francoeur*
UT- N Reimold
UT- J Jay
UT- L Cain
BN- R Brignac
BN- C Pennington
BN- C Coghlan
BN- J Bourgeios
BN- D Descalso


P- J Weaver*
P- S Strasburg*
P- J Shields*
P- D Haren*
P- C Kershaw*
P- M Scherzer*
p- B Norris*
P- S Baker*
P- E Santana*
P- J Motte*
B- N Eovaldi
B- C Perez
B- D McGowen
B- B Beavan
B- J Guthrie

Offered this:

Send - Shields, Norris, Kendrick, and prospects Zack Wheeler and Carlos Martinez
Receive- Kemp, Beltre, Zambrano, Schierholtz, and prospects Josh Bell and Ryan Lavarnway

I feel like I just need some help letting go of my prospects, seems like a good deal getting some much needed offense. Bell and Lavarnway would take the MiLB roster space.

First of all, I'd jump all over that trade. In fact if you have a veto system I'd be worried about it getting knocked down. You're selling high on Shields whom a lot of people think will regress a fair amount, plus Bud Norris and Howie Kendrick, neither of which I'd lose sleep over. Wheeler and Martinez both have ace upside but you'll be lucky if you get a #2 SP and a good closer out of them. Pitching prospects are even more volatile than MLB pitchers. Those are two nice guys to have in a dynasty but look at what you're getting in return: Kemp is 27 and a top 3 player. Beltre is really good and fills a hole at 3B. Zambrano, Schierholtz, whatever, but Josh Bell has insane upside and if Lavarnway works out, you'll have C covered as well.

Point of the point, jump all over that trade.

Of your bench players, I'd keep:

L Cain - nice upside, should be a starter this year.
N Eovaldi - young pitcher, intriguing minor league history, take a shot
C Perez - saves are saves

The others I could take or leave. I know you can keep 7 of those, but for the other 4, well, flip a coin? No real attractive options. Bourgeios has some SB potential. John Jay is starting, right? These are all pretty marginal players.

I like that trade all day for you.

I'd probably give Nolan Reimold a shot at being one of your final 7 keepers. Was pretty productive from a fantasy standpoint for his 80 some odd games he played last year.

Def jump on the trade.

Keeper-wise I agree w/ C Perez, Eovaldi, and Cain. I'd keep Bourgeious to deal him. The rest I'd let go.

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

I hope you have already accepted that deal. ;-D

For the extra 7 I would probably go....

UT- N Reimold
UT- J Jay
UT- L Cain
BN- R Brignac
BN- J Bourgeios
B- N Eovaldi
B- C Perez

Really, most are just bench players here so take some guys that could outproduce what you'd be expecting. Some may get some trade value if they succeed early on.

I like these trades for you, though I seem to be in the minority as far as expecting a good year from Ubaldo is concerned. Upton is an elite keeper and Choo has been excellent in the past and hopefully will rebound to that for you as well. Wheeler being a Met almost assures he'll either get hurt or end up sucking.
