Trade Help need asap - WHIR

Postby jonance » Thu Feb 23, 2012 12:26 am

H2H Auction Keeper League
6x6 - w/ OPS and Holds
$300 Salary Cap



First my team is below with their salary for this year: ( Didn't include minors since they dont' factor into this questoin.

So....I won the league last year and i'm trying to get in line to do it again before contracts are due. I have an offer that has been revised to read:

I get: Victorino $8 through 2013 - then can sign for $12 for up to 5 more years.
Chris B Young ($10 can sign up to 5 years at value)
Wainwright ($12 can resign for up to 5 years at value)

They get: Hamilton $29 - End of contract 2012 - will likely not be resigned and go back to auction
Melky Cabrera - $2 is cheap but i have no use for him now or after trade
Morales - $2 I've been waiting for him a long time, and i'm still not convinced. If they get asteal from me i'm ok with that
Fister - $2 I think i can find a Fister replacement on teh wire somewhere...wouldnt' let him ruin the deal.

So my team need that I see is speed. By adding Young and Vic, I am getting a good chunk of steals without having to resort to a "steals only" type of player that brings down the others coutning states. I lose Hamilton for the 1 year i had him left (could be big or small...a gamble), but won't the production between Vic and Young equal if not best him?

As for the pitchers...i was targeting Wainright as a bounceback after surgery...all seems well to bring me another ace while shipping off Fister.

The main goal here is to increase my odds not only this year, bu tlooking at next year i'd have their talent for more if wanted cost contralled.

I'm an NL guy, but I'd do it. You're giving up Hamilton and 3 bench players for 3 starters? How can that be bad? I like it .

I like it. You're getting three very good pieces at good prices that you can lock up long term and fit a team need. Giving up Hamilton is tough, but I'd prefer Victorino at his price and keeper potential over one more year of Hamilton at his price anyways. The other guys you're giving up are just throw-ins for the most part so the overall trade looks really good for you.

I like the trade you give up one yr Ham and get plenty back with years remaining on the contracts plus some speed. You need some SP work but you look strong again.

Young is garbage but I'll take 3-5 years of Wainwright at top production, 1-2 good years from Vic over 1 year of Hamilton.

I'd do it.
