Trade Cano for Pedroia + Keeper?

Postby wags87 » Tue Mar 13, 2012 4:46 pm

I've been offered a combination of Pedroia along with Price / Gallardo / McCutchen / Carlos Santana. Of those, I'd be most interested in Gallardo, followed by Price and McCutchen.

Again, four team keeper league. I love Cano, but that's a pretty solid offer. Leaves me with Lincecum, Pedrioa, Gallardo, and Beltre as keepers. I also have an early pick in this years draft, so I'd be well on the way to a strong team, probably picking up one of the top free agent bats with my first pick.

Any thoughts / advice? Which of the combos (Pedroia + ???) would you choose and why, or would you not do this trade at all? Thanks.

C- Pierzynski
1b - Ryan Howard
2b - R Cano
3b - Pablo Sandoval and Adrian Beltre
SS - JJ Hardy
OF - Melky Cabrera

UTIL - Micheal Bourn
UTIL - Jeter
Bench: Daniel Murphy, Mark Reynolds

P- U Jimenez
P- Colby Lewis
SP - Roy Oswalt
SP - Tim Lincecum
SP -James Shields
RP - Papelbon and Brian Wilson
Bench: Bartolo Colon

I'd do it for Pedroia and McCutchen. Your keepers would be Pedroia, McCutchen, Beltre, and Sandoval. I wouldn't consider keeping a pitcher over any of those guys unless it was Kershaw, Halladay, or Lee.

After the above opinions, I'm leaning towards it. That said, if I do it, who do you keep- Lincecum or Sandoval? I'm heavily favoring Lincecum as my league is often ptiching hungry, meaning that I need a high quality ace to be competitive...

If you are holding on the Beltre as well then you may be able to keep lincecum instead of Pablo.

I like the deal if you get McCutchen. I would be fine keeping Linc as I think people are grading Pablo a little too high right now. Linc is stil one of the best pitchers and would likely go higher in a draft (not much but enough).

Would take Price or McCutchen. Gallardo would probably be the last guy I would take out of the four. Definitely do the deal if you can get McCutchen.

I would go Pedroia and McCutch. I don't have a problem at all with keeping Lincecum over Sandoval, especially if you are already keeping Beltre
