Help with a trade..... WHIR

Postby ahcryky » Tue Apr 10, 2012 12:40 pm

Play in a keeper, keep 8. H2H R HR RBI SB BB TB OPS W SV HR K ERA WHIP QS
Positions C, 1B, 2B, SS, IF, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P 24 Man Roster
My Team
Y Molina / K Kershaw
J Votto / I Kennedy
B Phillips / J Shields
H Ramirez / J Axford
B Lawrie
A Gonzalez / S Marshall
R Braun / J Cueto
J Ellsbury / M Minor
M Cabrera / C Sale
Z Cozart / V Worley
L Duda / M Latos
M Moustakis / F Liriano
J Montero

I sent an offer of H Ramirez and Liriano for K Morales and A Wainright. I got countered with H Ramirez and Minor for Morales and Wainright. We can also trade draft pics, starting in the 9th round once all 8 of our keepers are loaded for those rounds. Pull the trigger?

I'm not sure...what are you going for in this trade? Are you hoping to see Wainwright bounce back to ace form, and Morales to turn into Pujols' "Robin"? (like Cabrera/Fielder)

I guess I'd be ok with this then. You only keep 8. Would Wainwright or Morales be a keeper for you? My guess would be no. Would HanRam be a keeper for you? My guess is yes. So if you look at it that way, you're giving up 1 keeper and getting back 0 keepers.

i dont do it. i think you can get what morales will give you out of montero/mostoukas/duda.

i think your pitching is really good where you dont need to let go of hanley for wainwright.

stay put i could see this team winning it all.

Hanley was a keeper for me this year, but I don't see him being a keeper for me next year if he loses his SS position..... That would be the only reason I would keep him. It's all speculation on Wainright and Morales..... They were both guys I targeted at the draft and this team drafted them before I got the chance. I was considering dropping Minor for L Lynn anyway, and then I got this counter......

Thanks....... I was thinking about countering back for Zobrist instead of Morales, but I don't think he'll go for it.

I think you're giving up too much. If you want morales have the owner package him with a better player, maybe a pitcher?

I'm completely on board with this. Besides, if you're so worried about Hanley's eligibility, isn't it likely that Reyes misses enough time where HanRam would get enough time at SS?
