Keeper Trade Help Needed WHIR

Postby bobnerns » Mon Jan 23, 2012 8:02 pm

I was just given a derelict team in a 10-team keeper auction league. Keeper prices go up by 10% from auction, always rounded up. So someone bought for $10 costs $11 next year and $13 for 2013. Any non-drafted free agent costs $5 for next year. There is no limit on the number of years we can keep a player. Auction and rosters are standard ESPN settings with $260 for draft and 25-man rosters (3 bench). We keep 4 players maximum. 5x5 H2H but with OBP and Quality Starts replacing AVG and Wins.

Right now, I'd be keeping the following:
Asdrubal Cabrera - $2
Howie Kendrick - $3
Jacoby Ellsbury - $29
Yu Darvish - $5

I've been offered a trade of Eric Hosmer ($5) and Adam Jones ($6) for Asdrubal Cabrera ($2).

Who should I keep if I do this trade?

Leave your link.

This is an interesting system, but I think this trade could work in your favor. As great as it was to see Cabrera come out of nowhere and have a superior season last year, I just get this feeling that he either won't keep it up to that level or he'll revert back to something in the middle or lower. Great price on him, but I think a keeper list of Hosmer, Jones, Ellsbury, and Darvish would be superior. I say make the trade.

I think Hosmer is a sure thing and you need to do this deal. Not sure on final roster but get this done and look to deal again

Hell, I think this is a no brainer in my opinion. I would take Hosmer and Jones straight up for Asdrubal who in my opinion will never duplicate 2011 or better it. AND you get Montero a solid catcher. Take it and run.

please help

I would accept this deal.

Hosmer takes up the 4th keeper spot instead of Cabrera.

Keeping Jones would be tough. Not sure who to cut. Kendrick was my first choice, but that is iffy. Darvish could end up being very good for $5. I may even consider dropping Ellsbury, even though he is a bargain at $29. It looks like the best keeper choices from your league are going to be young, very low cost (<$10) players, as you can keep them for eternity based on inflation. But then again, Ellsbury is probably too much of a bargain to replace.

Like everyone said, take the deal. Then I would let Kendrick drop back in the draft. I don't love Jones but I like him more than Kendrick.
