j upton for tulo?

Postby mjb412 » Wed Mar 28, 2012 5:49 pm

standard yahoo scoring roto league
my team:
c- mccann
1b- pujols
2- pedroia
3- david wright
ss- marco scutaro
of- justin upton, granderson, jay bruce
util- austin jackson, mark reynolds
bench- angel pagan, kelly johnson, morneau, aviles
sp- cj wilson, max scherzer
rp- jose valverde, brian wilson
p- shaun marcum, ted lilly, aroldis chapman, chris carpenter, bud norris

should i propose justin upton for troy tulowitzki? i think they're even, but i'd lose out on sb's, but i would also get a great upgrade at shortstop. he's got rollins on his bench, and i've tried multiple possibilities to trade for either of them with no luck. he probably wouldn't even go for this trade.

Personally I'd rather have Upton than Tulo, so I wouldn't even bother. I'd ride Scutaro at SS and keep a stacked OF. There's bound to be a SS pop up somewhere. Not to mention, you also have Aviles on the bench.

Probably a long shot, but what's the availability of Bonifacio? He probably has SS eligibility.

bonifacio is taken.

any trades you see available to snag one of his ss's?
his lineup:
iannetta
konerko
kinsler
beltre
tulo
bj upton, corey hart, ichiro
brett lawrie, jimmy rollins, dexter fowler, carlos lee, aaron hill

daniel hudson, josh beckett
cory luebke, carlos marmol
kenley jansen, hiroki kuroda, jhoulys chacin, matt thornton, erik bedard, jonathan broxton

he's rejected scutaro/granderson/marcum for tulo/bj upton
he (insultingly) proposed i give him pedroia/j upton/chapman for bj upton/rollins/aaron hill/hiroki kuroda, to which i replied that i wouldn't give him upton alone for all of those players

suggestions?

You would probably have a better shot at getting J-Roll. He'd come much more cheaply.

I'd go Jay Bruce/Scutaro/Marcum (or another mid-tier pitcher) for Rollins/Ichiro maybe? Maybe Carlos Lee instead of Ichiro if he doesn't like that.

The point being, his price is probably a bit too high for Tulo...and I wouldn't trade Justin Upton. Go for J-Roll if you want a SS upgrade.

There's plenty of viable SS out there that could have a great year.

If Drew can stay healthy in Arizona, he is skilled...

Maybe SeanRod finally puts it together?

Clint Barmes? Bartlett?

I don't know...I think you have opportunities to sit, wait, and grab the hot SS as you go along...

I would make the trade.
You need a SS, and nothing is there.
Drop Jackson or Pagan, and get D Young, who could go 20/80.

Those SS choices are terrible.
Maybe Drew if he was healthy, but he's not, and he's never really put it together anyways.
You can't have Scutaro at SS.
D Young would offset some of the lose in the OF.
I take Tulo/Young over Upton/Scutaro by a lot.

Oh come on...no glass half-full? :(

The OF options are better than the SS options, I agree. I just think Upton's value is higher than Tulo, so he should try and get something else out of the deal.
