ARod for Heyward, Valverde, Cueto?

Postby soupy56 » Wed Mar 28, 2012 11:11 am

You guys are probably getting sick of my questions but I'm quite new to FB. Thanks for your help. Here's my question.

I receive: Heyward, Valverde, Cueto.
He receives: ARod

I need a closer. I don't want to put too much into it because it's only one stat but my only closer is Jim Johnson now b/c I Lost Madson for the season. Should I pull the trigger on this trade or ask for more? I'd love to get McCann and Velverde (possibly Heyward too) for ARod and Avila but he wants to keep the catchers out of the deal. Should I focus that much on Saves? Or keep a possible 30/100 guy in ARod?

Me:
C A. Avila
1B Konerko
2B Pedroia
3B A. Rodriguez
SS. A. Cabrera
OF McCutchen
OF Adam Jones
OF Drew Stubbs
Util Markakis
Util Goldschmidt
BN Trumbo
BN Soriano

SP J. Johnson
SP CJ Wilson
SP T. Hanson
RP Jim Johnson
RP Empty (was Madson)
P E. Santana
P C. Lewis
BN N. Feliz (starter now)
BN Buehrle
BN A. Chapman (if S. Marshall chokes)

Him:
C B. McCann
1B A. Gonzalez
2B H. Kendrick
3B D. Valencia
SS E. Andrus
OF M. Kemp
OF G. Stanton
OF J. Hamilton
Util J. Heyward
Util D. Young
BN A. Pagan
BN P. Polanco

SP CC Sabathia
SP Y. Gallardo
SP G. Gonzalez
RP J. Axford
RP J. Valverde
P M. Garza
P J. Cueto
BN D. Fister
BN J. Nathan

He offered Valverde and Someone else for ARod. What should I offer him that is fair but will also help my team? I obviously need closer help. Much appreciated!

I would take that deal any day. ARod is declining although he has really worked hard this spring. He will be LUCKY to get to 30/100 in my opinion. I Love Heyward's upside and Valverde is a top closer. Cueto is a nice throw in too. Take it.

please help

I don't love the deal mostly because I don't like what you will be left with at 3B. Unless I am missing something, Trumbo will be your 3B but he doesn't have eligibility there yet so you will go at least a week or two before you can play someone. If you can get that figured out, then i am all for it.

I like this trade for you. Heyward could very easily match and surpass Rodriguez' numbers this year, and then Valverde and Cueto would be just gravy on top. This is a great trade for you since you have some question marks at RP already. I'd pull the trigger now.

Definitely my big question. What If I have him throw in Valencia until Trumbo becomes eligible?

Haha see now you got me freaking out. Chances are, coming back from surgery he wont be at top form this season. He's old. I forgot to mention this is a keeper league where each team keeps 3 guys. Dont know if that changes much. The combination of Heyward, Valencia from last seasons stats would surpass 100 RBI and 25+ homers. I'd pretty much be banking on Trumbo to start at third and do well.

I would have him throw in Valencia, cut him when Trumbo becomes a 3B.
Arods days of 30/100 are gone. I would be surprised if he plays 130 games.

Yup. ;-D At a glance the deal seems poor, but it's actually solid value for a declining talent.
