Holliday/Hudson/Desmond 4 Kimbrel/Garcia

Postby Wadderboiz » Mon Mar 26, 2012 10:06 am

8 Team NL only league. After winning the league I have to widdle my team from 15 keepers down to 10. Proposing the following deal.

My
M. Holliday $15
D. Hudson $14
I. Desmond $1

for

His
C. Kimbrel $16
J. Garcia $10

In an ideal world I'd keep my guys, but I'm left with trading 2for1, 3for2 type deals or just throwing them back in the draft. WHIR!

Tough decision. What's the goal of this trade? Would you keep Kimbrel? Garcia? Both?

Are you able to keep 1 out of the three you're trading instead? What are your options. Talk me through it a bit more.

I think I'd want Holliday the most out of all 5, but if he is not able to be kept, I think I'd want Kimbrel second.

Here are the 14 potential guys I'd consider keeping ... Sort of the Dwight Howard dilemma...keep 10 and throw the rest back and get nothing for them, or package some 2 for 1 deals and get some return on good value players.

B. Posey 5
W. Ramos 1
R. Braun 20
A. McCutchen 15
M. Morse 1
J. Chacin 6
J. Axford 10
J. Hanrahan 10
I. Desmond 1
M. Holliday 15
D. Hudson 14
P. Goldschmidt 5
D. Mesoraco 5
Y. Gallardo 30

I'd target some SP then. You have a plethora of bats, and especially notable young catchers, to use as bait.

What's Cole Hamels price tag? How about Beachy? Bumgarner? Look into those guys.


EDIT: I have to admit, I'm a little confused on that other deal though. You have "your three" and CarGo both listed as your players on this keeper list. What gives?

Draft most likely to have T. Lincecum, R. Halladay, G. Gonzalez, T. Hudson and M. Cain figured I'd try and nab an ace that way. [/quote]

Funny you should mention these guys Beachy $5 and Bumgardner $10 are on last years last place team. He made a ton of deals at the end of the year to get a bunch of great bargain contracts and has made it clear he's not dealing any of them.

Hamels is $21, given that I'll have to draft 14 players I'm looking to trade for sub $20 guys.

My bad I pulled that roster from a spreadsheet and had CarGo plugged in as a potential. I believe I edited that post.

Thanks for you help.

Oh, ok gotcha. Yeah, I guess target SP in the draft then.

That three-for-one with CarGo would be a killer deal for sure if accepted. Having an OF of Braun/McCutchen/CarGo sounds really nice.
