Is this Enough for Lester?

Postby rasto21585 » Tue Mar 27, 2012 4:41 pm

I am in a 20 team h2h dynasty league. I just got an interesting offer for Lester. I would trade Lester and Carlos Lee for Bechy and Goldschmidt. Do I consider this deal?

Lester > Beachy
Lee < Goldschmidt

Lester is the best player in the deal. Don't do it.

I do it. Beachy isn't far from Lester, and may pass him in a year.
Goldschmidt has 30 hr power, if he can hit .270.

You better get J Montero, lol.

I agree. I love Beachy and isn't really that far behind Lester. Lee is really almost done and it is a dynasty so a Goldy could be huge for you. Pull the trigger.

I agree with the above post, I think in a dynasty this is greatly in your favor, I'd take this trade.

Help with mine?

I really like Beachy but he has only done it one year and I worry that he isn't quite this good. Goldschmidt has a lot of holes in his swing and it could be a rough year. There is more upside on the Beachy side and in a dynasty winning usually requires risk taking. So maybe I do it but beware that this could look bad in a few months.

I would not make this trade. Lately, Lester has looked DOMINANT during spring training. Yesterday he pitched 7 scoreless innings and struck out 10. I wouldn't put too much stock in Beachy until he can consistently produce for a full season.

He also faced Pence, Ruiz, Rollins, Victorino, Mayberry, and any other Phillie that is even moderately good.Its the end of Spring training, where the lineups tend to greatly resemble what the regular season lineups will look like.

lester's a guaranteed solid pitcher. you'd be taking a gamble with the others. if you do it you'd be trading just to trade. you'd (maybe) improve the future of your 1b, and you'd downgrade your pitching. i wouldn't do it.
