Trade Help: Zimmerman *WHIR*

Postby Hummus » Sat Mar 10, 2012 3:41 pm

I posted recently about trading Kemp for a bounty of players. I think that has since fallen through, and I have a deal in place where I would receive Zimmerman for my seventh round pick and Yonder Alonso.

No brainer, right? But here's the catch. We keep 4, and I would be keeping Zimmerman, making my keepers, barring any additional trades, Kemp, Zimmerman, and two of Holliday/Posey/Haren. I already have Pablo whom I could keep, so there is the dilemma. Do I pull the trigger? Also, should I try to flip Holliday or Posey?

This is a 12 team 12x12 with 4 keepers. We are dropping to three next year, and I think that Zimmerman offers the best option going forward. Thoughts?

Thanks.

I like Pablo more than Zimmerman anyways. I'd just stand pat and keep Kemp, Pablo, Holliday, and Haren.

I like Pablo and Zimmerman better than Holliday, I would go with Kemp, Zim, Panda and Haren (or maybe even Holliday for my 4th).

This....except I'd definitely keep Haren over Holliday.

I'd stay put and keep Kemp, Haren, Pablo, and Holliday. No reason to trade for a minor upgrade (Zimmerman over Holliday keeper wise) when you are giving up a 7th rounder and are going to 3 keepers next year anyways.

I would probably stay put and decline the trade.

I don't think Alonso is going to be a keeper in your league this year or the next. So giving him up isn't a problem IMO. You could always redraft him at some point. A 7th round pick ends up being an 11th round pick with the 4 keepers. Not a great pick, but not a horrible one either.

Your keepers are Kemp, Holliday, Haren, and Posey. Yet you aren't keeping Pablo? I'm not a fan of keeping most catchers in a 12 team league, especially Posey. His injury last season should make him easier to redraft than the other 4. I'd drop him for Pablo on the list. And with Pablo, I think he is just as valuable as Zimmerman going forward. Zimmerman has a tad more talent IMO, but is much more of an injury risk.

If you make the trade, the guys I would keep are the 4 hitters- Kemp, Holliday, Pablo, and Zimmerman. Haren is bumped off the list- not a lot of teams and the other guys are being drafted higher than Haren. And keeping Zimmerman (or Pablo) instead of Haren isn't enough of an upgrade to lose an 11th round pick.

I like Zimmerman more than Pablo but enough to trade your 7th round pick for him. I would then keep Kemp, Holliday, Pablo and Haren.
