Big Trade (CarGo), Any Advice?

Postby studepaber » Thu Feb 23, 2012 11:09 am

In a H2H 6X6 keeper league...

I've got CarGo on my team for $8 and 2 years left in his contract (which I can extend when it's done for a price). Another team is super interested in him and is willing to give up Bautista ($30 2 years left) but also wants pitching. I was thinking CarGo and Kennedy for his Bautista and Beachy (Kennedy's an upgrade for him IMO) and he will also need to throw in $17 so I have the cap space for Bautista.

Any thoughts on this one? I think CarGo has a sweet deal and I could have him for several years for cheap, although Bautista is likely to put up the better numbers.

I would much rather have Cargo at that cost. I'd pass.

I say stick with Gonzalez and spend your money elsewhere. If money wasn't involved the deal should be done, but even if the other guys throws money at you to help this year that still means you have to cough up $22 more dollars next year than you would for Gonzalez. Stick with what you have.

By the way, any money/contract information regarding the pitchers being exchanged?

Kennedy is $19 with 3 years, Beachy is $14 and the years have yet to be decided, also CarGo would go up to $10 next year but that's still $20 difference.

EDIT: Decided not to go through with the trade, my inclination was not to do it, just wanted advice from you all. Thanks :-)

As much as I love Bautista, I think you have to stick with CarGo. You need to have an under priced stud or two to win a league like that. CarGo + $20 at auction is worth more to me than $30 Joey Bats.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
