Well, yeah, they're based on real life contracts after all. I guess I won't take the deal. My thinking was I have plenty of cap space, so I can afford to take on Hafner if it means upgrading from Lester to Halladay. I guess in a dynasty Lester is more valuable and Halladay is less valuable though?
I can cut Hafner but it would cost me $10 this year and $8 next year.
What about this:
Roy Halladay, $20 this year, $20 next year, $20 vesting option in 2014. Travis Hafner, $13 this year, $13 club option next year. Justin Masterson, $4 this year.
Jon Lester, $8 this year, $12 next year, $13 club option in 2014 Hak-Ju Lee, $1 for the next 3-4 years. Francisco Liriano, $6 this year.
Right now I'm 93/140 in terms of cap space, so I can afford to take on Hafner's bad contract. My main issue with this trade is Hallday's possible age-related decline and Lester's upside with that contract.
This is a dynasty league with contracts based on real-life salaries. I can keep these guys as long as I want. Will Halladay be better than Lester over the next 3 years? Is Masterson for real?
