Trade Offer WHIR

Postby sman79 » Wed Mar 28, 2012 4:41 pm

I am in a ten team keeper league in Yahoo which uses the following stats: R, H, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP, W, CG, SHO, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, and K/BB.

My current roster is:
C Brian McCann
1B Adrian Gonzalez
2B Ian Kinsler
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS Jimmy Rollins
OF Carlos Gonzalez
OF Drew Stubbs
OF Corey Hart
Util Chris Young
BN Ryan Howard
BN Nick Markakis
BN Yunel Escobar

SP Matt Cain
SP CJ Wilson
RP Mariano Rivera
RP Carlos Marmol
P Madison Bumgarner
P Daniel Hudson
P Chris Perez
BN Scott Baker
BN Tim Hudson

Another manager has offered me the following trade: Tim Lincecum, Kevin Youkilis, and Neftali Feliz for Adrian Gonzalez, Chris Young, and Mariano Rivera.

I was hoping I could receive some advice on whether I should accept or not. (I was leaning no but a second opinion is always helpful and welcome.) Thank you for your time. Leave a link and I'll get to you when I can.

While it would be fun to own Lincecum, Cain and Bumgarner, I see that trade disrupting your balance more than helping it. I'd also start Markakis over Young.

Keep Agone. Timmy's stats have been trending downward the past 2 years. For an ace, he's pretty risky

Absoutely do not do this trade.

Your getting Youk (injury risk) and Feliz (struggling to become a stating pitcher).

You're also giving the best player by far. (A Gonz).

Please respond to mine.

Agreed. You don't need any of the players he is offering you while you lose something by moving your guys.

This deal is not good for you. A Gon is more valuable than that. Tim is risky. Your team would not get better.

Help with mine?
