8 player trade with Miguel Cabrera

Postby ron paul for pres » Wed Mar 21, 2012 10:31 pm

12 team league, H2H, 5X5, non-keeper.

Details aren't worked out yet, and right now it's just a conversation.

I would give: Miguel Cabrera, G Soto, a starting pitcher and a closer
I would get: Michael Young, Brian McCann, David Price, and a non-closer RP.

I would put Young in my empty DH spot, then take Fielder of the bench and put him at 1B.
My SP needs upgrading. I don't plan on giving away Hanson, Sanchez or Worley. His RPs are: N Feliz (just about sure to start), J Venters (he won't trade), V Pestano, E O'Flaherty, and A Aceves.

My team before (and after)

C - Soto (McCann)
1B - Cabrera (Fielder)
2B - Kinsler
3B - A Rod
SS - A Cabrera
OF - Bruce
OF - J Hamilton
OF - Beltran
DH - empty (Young)
BN - Fielder (empty)
BN - L Morrison
BN - M Reynolds
BN - Alexei Ramirez
BN - R Raburn

SP - Hanson
SP - A Sanchez
SP - T Stauffer
SP - V Worley
SP - R Dempster
SP - J Chacin
SP - Oswalt
RP - Storen
RP - JJ Putz
RP - Balfour
RP - M Melancon
RP - K Uehara

No. If I give up MCab I had better get 1st round talent in return.

Yeah I think I would hold onto Miggy. I do not think Young repeats last year.

Yes, your SP could use some improving. But there's not a starter in the game that I would trade away Miggy to get.

That deal as it stands now is truly horrible.

I get what you guys are saying. But does it make any difference at all that it fills my specific needs?

C - McCann would be a huge upgrade over Soto
DH - Young would be a huge upgrade over an empty spot. Right now I'm hoping that either Cabrera, Prince, A Rod or Raburn will get DH eligibility. No telling when or if that will happen.
1B - There's no replacing Cabrera, but I've got Prince on the bench. This is the key for me. Having Cabrera and Prince on the corners would be awesome. But how quickly will Cabrera get 3B eligibility? I've heard everything from the 2nd week to much later. If he is rotated between 3B, 1B and DH, it could take a while.
SP - I would trade away a lesser starter for Price. Probably Dempster.
RP - I would probably trade Balfour and get O'Flaherty.

Bottom line, would my team as a whole be better or worse?

No.

If you aren't getting full value for Miggy, then it simply doesn't matter how many holes you fill on your roster. You will still be losing on the deal.

He's basically duct-taping together 3 decent fantasy commodities for arguably the best fantasy commodity. You shouldn't let that happen.

None of the three players you're getting back is a top 50 fantasy player, and you're giving up THE NUMBER ONE FANTASY PLAYER.


No. No. No.
