grade 3 trades

Postby HOOTIE » Fri Mar 09, 2012 4:58 am

3 keeper trades A, B, C
Might have over paid, but i got the best guy in each deal.
Your thoughts?

A
120 players kept, 16 keepers
I traded Alex Avila and the 16th pick, for Mike Napoli

B
120 players kept, 16 keepers
I traded Ian Kinsler and the 7th and 8th picks, for Robinson Cano and the 17th pick

C
112 players kept, 15 keepers, have a minor league roster (Miller)
I traded Mike Napoli, Shelby Miller, and the 14th pick, for Jacoby Ellsbury

From the info given:

I could have done without trade A. I could live with Avila and keep my 16th pick. You can win with Avila, especially in that DET lineup. Other trades seem well done on your part.

I like them all. BUt it depends on how many keepers were kept in each situation.

I like A and C alot for you especially since I feel Avila's will have as much of a regression as Napoli, but Napoli's ceiling is much higher.

The only one I don't love is the kinsler trade. Cano is without a doubt an upgrade over Kinsler, if not for the mere fact that his consistency is top notch. But I don't know if I would have given up the two draft picks. I think I would want to see your roster to fairly grade that trade.

I like them all with C being the best. I Could have lived with you keeping Kinsler and your picks but Cano is a step above. I love A too. Napolit is much better than Avila as see Avila really regressing this year.

please help

A is a good deal. I'm not a Avila fan so I think you did really well.

B is little bit of an overpay in my mind. Cano is rock solid but I could actually see Kinsler outproduce him if he stays healthy.

C is a good deal. I don't expect 30 HR out of Ellsbury again but still a nice trade.

I agree with this. Cano is clearly better than Kinsler, but not sure if it is enough of an upgrade to give up both of those picks.

I like A and C, but am not a fan of B. I could see doing trade B if my team was a bit weak on BA though, so depending on your team's makeup, it is definitely feasible.
