Keeper Trade: Longo/Price/Martin - Verlander/Beltre/Profar

Postby dandedic9 » Thu Dec 29, 2011 11:28 am

I am in an 8-team AL only Keeper League. We can keep 17 players and 4 reserves (Less than 100Abs or 40inn.) Basically a 5 x 5 type league. It would take all day to give the exact specifics of our rules. I have a trade pending at this time: Valverde and Hellickson or Haren.
Rosters are:
Mine His
P-David Price(16-13) P-Justin Verlander-A(23-10)
P-Jon Lester-B(16-13) P-Felix Hernandez-B(13-20)
P-Jose Valverde-B(9-1) P-Derek Holland(12-3)
P-Sergio Santos(8-2) P-Brandon League(9-4)
P-Joakim Soria(3-6) P-Joe Nathan-B(3-4)
1B/ C-Carlos Santana C-Russell Martin
1B-Adrian Gonzalez-B 1B-Mark Teixeira-A
1B-Paul Konerko-B 1B-Justin Smoak
2B-Dustin Pedroia-B 2B-Robinson Cano-B
3B/2B-Brett Lawrie 3B-Adrian Beltre-A
3B-Evan Longoria 3B-Lonnie Chisenhall
SS-Asdrubal Cabrera SS-J.J. Hardy-B
OF-Josh Hamilton SS-Jhonny Peralta

OF-Peter Bourjos* C-Wil Myers(Res Elg)
P-Jarrod Parker(RES Elg) SS-Jurickson Profar(Res Elg)
P-Matt Moore(Res Elg) P-Danny Hultzen(Res Elg)
3B-Miguel Sano(Res Elg) 3B-Nick Castellanos(Res Elg)
OF-Leonys Martin(Res Elg)
OF-Bubba Starling(Res Elg)

*Need to cut one of these 3, if my pending trade does not go through.

I don't like the Longo deal for you. I liked the Haren move though. Assuming that you don't make the Longo trade and the Haren move is approved … you would need to cut 1 guy. For me, it would be Leonys Martin unless you can pull off another 2 for 1 and upgrade somewhere else.

I would not make the Longoria trade if I were you. I just feel that he is a special talent at a relatively weak position and his value is higher because it is a keeper league.

I like you getting Haren, don't like you getting the Longo side, and would drop one of Martin or Sano.

I'm a little confused here...

Are you trading away Long/Price for Verlander/Beltre?

If so, I would stand pat.

I think it's a pretty close trade, actually. You're downgrading from Longoria to Beltre, which is definitely a hit. You're upgrading from Price to Verlander, which is a nice boost but not worth going from Longoria to Beltre. The key is giving up Martin and getting Jurickson Profar. Profar is an elite, top 5 prospect. He plays great defense at SS, put up insane numbers as an 18 year old in full season ball, and when he comes up he'll play in Arlington.

I still think I would pass, though. I'm not sure I'd want to accept such a sell high on Verlander - in a season or two Verlander and Price may be seen as more evenly matched, or perhaps even Price having an edge. Longoria is a lot younger than Beltre and like someone said above, he really is a special talent. It would be great to get Profar, but the price is just a tad too high.

Getting Haren ;-D
Dealing Longo :-t

It seems that the guy you would have to drop is one of the guys with the * next to his name and is only in the case the Haren deal does not go through? If that is the case I drop Bourjos of the three.

Thank you to all that responded. It's obvious I must pass on this offer. I must admit my true attraction to the deal was Profar, whom I think will be a beast someday. Great Feedback!!!
