Dynasty Trade options WHIR

Postby Mateo de Lorenzo » Mon Jan 23, 2012 8:23 pm

Dynasty league h2h with standard categories plus ops and holds.

Draft underway-- two rounds left, I have six picks. Then a 15 round minor league draft.

Here is my current team:

C Brian McCann
1B Prince Fielder
2B Robinson Cano
3B Pablo Sandoval
SS Starlin Castro
LF Howie Kendrick (2B, LF)
CF Alejandro de Aza
RF Lance Berkman (1B, LF, RF)
OF
U Hanley Ramirez
SP Clayton Kershaw
SP Zack Greinke
SP Daniel Hudson
SP Randy Wolf
SP
RP Jose Valverde
RP Rafael Betancourt
RP Fautino de los Santos
P
P
BN Mike Moustakas
BN Alexei Ramirez
BN Michael Young
BN
BN

I am planning on picking up a couple of pitchers in my next two or three picks.

Current trade possibilities (please give input)

Trade A: I get Matt Kemp for Panda and Daniel Hudson.
Is this a no-brainer? I am really high on both Panda and Hudson and both are young for a dynasty league, but so is Kemp. This would free up a roster spot so I can put Michael Young at 3B, but my pitching is a bit thin now.

Trade B: Manager wants Cano. I can put Michael Young as 2B. Who should I ask for?
His team:

2B Dustin Ackley
3B Brett Lawrie
SS Troy Tulowitzki
LF Ryan Braun
RF Justin Upton
OF Colby Rasmus
U David Wright
SP Mat Latos
SP Tommy Hanson
SP Brandon Beachy
SP Max Scherzer
SP Danny Hultzen
P Tyler Skaggs
P Jarrod Parker
BN Bryce Harper (MiLB)
BN Jayson Werth
BN Shelby Miller (MiLB)
BN Dominic Brown
BN Zack Cozart

So, who should I ask for for Cano? I was thinking Ackley, Parker, Miller but that doesn't seem very overwhelming for my end, although I like my team well enough that I am not overly concerned with getting the best end of the deal for this year, but would like to beef up my pitching, especially with youth.
Please help me with analyzing my team? viewtopic.php?f=29&t=433592

I say no to Trade A. Your pitching is too thin.

I say that for Trade B, you go for the moon and ask for Tulowitzki and Miller. Harp on the fact that Tulo has been banged up off-and-on. See how much he wants Cano. If he doesn't bite, no harm done.

Thanks for the info. Been discussing it with him. He seems more interested in Prince now. As for asking for Tulo, it would add to my logjam but I could trade a SS for pitching, too.

I would definitely do Trade A. Kemp is much, much better than both of those two combined.

For trade B, I agree with requesting Tulo as the backbone of the deal. I would also look into a trade of Ryan Braun and Tommy Hanson. Hopefully he is panicking on the PED suspension and Hanson's injury concerns.

Help with mine?

Trade A is a no-brainer for sure. Take Kemp and run.

Trade B ask for anyone, you'd be giving up the #1 2B in baseball. Straight up for Upton or Tulo. Package with Braun/Lawrie/Beachy. Don't undersell someone like Cano. He is worth top round talent, don't settle for prospects.

I agree with this. Though I think my SP target would be Matt Latos. Perhaps Cano for Upton and Latos? If you can sell the position scarcity point, this might be obtainable.

I also like the first trade.

If you do the first trade then I would trade Cano and make sure to get Lawrie in the deal. I am not sure he will be willing to deal any of his big names as most owners who try and get studs are not willing to give up the studs they already own. If you could get Lawire and Upton then it would be great for you. But I would look to make this deal first and see what you can agree to and then look to make the first deal.
