Huge Trade and Need Opinions WHIR

Postby KSig24 » Mon Mar 05, 2012 7:43 pm

I am in an intense keeper league where the rules have just changed for the worse and we can now only keep a player for a max of three years unless he is one of three players franchised.

I was offered the #1 overall pick which would be Cabrera or Pujols for Pedroia. Pedi probably wont make the franchise keeper cut on my squad so it would be a final year lease on him as he will head back into the draft pool to never be kept again unless the guy I am trading with decides to keep him.

Should I trade Pedi being that I already own Kinsler for the number one overall pick?

I would do that trade. If I'm reading this correctly you are trading 1 year of Pedroia for 3 years of Miggy or Pujols. Even 1 year for 1 year I would take Pujols or Miggy, plus you have a great 2B already.

Please help;

No I only get a one year rental on the top pick. He goes back after the end of the year.

I still think that you do it since you have Kinsler. You get the top 1B and are still keeping the 3rd best 2B.

Something doesn't make sense, why would someone trade Pedroia for Cabrera? Are you also giving up a draft pick? If not, jump now before the guy figures out how stupid he is.

I am assuming that Pedroia would be franchised by the other team.

I think I make this deal if you don't think you are going to franchise Pedroia.
