Should I give Bruce for Haren? WHIR 100%

Postby jruffus1 » Wed Apr 11, 2012 9:55 am

I am in a 12-team H2H keeper league that contains 12 categories (including OBP and Holds). We can keep 4 players for 3 years each, but give up their draft picks in return (which makes it less likely that I'd keep Bruce). My starting pitching has been killing me ever since opening day and I am looking to give up one of my position players for an Ace.

Offer Jay Bruce for Dan Haren????

How does this trade look for my team?

My Roster:

C - M Montero
1st - Goldscmidt
2nd - Kinsler
3rd - Lawrie
SS - Castro
OF - Kemp
OF - Bruce
OF - Ethier
Util - Ortiz

Bench: Morales, D Young

SPs:

Lester
Hanson
Wainwright
Kuroda
Masterson
Bard

RPs:

Bell
Capps
Broxton
Aceves

Holland
Perkins

I think the trades fairly even but personally I think you are better with bruce long term, I think your pitching will be fine?

I don't think you can afford to trade Bruce, while your pitching isn't all that bad and you have enough SPs to even spot start when matchups are favorable. Stand Pat.

Would you keep Haren if you traded for him?

I think your SP will be fine but I also don't mind this trade. Young is fine replacement for Bruce and you have a lot of power already so losing him isn't going to hurt you all that much. If you think you would keep Haren, then do the deal. If not maybe a wait it out a bit longer and see what your SP really looks like. There will always be people who want Bruce.

That reminds me. For the hell of it, I previously offered Bruce to my league's commissioner for Lincecum and he responded with "LOL Bruce is like Nick Swisher." After that comment, i've never expected to get any sort of reasonable trade from that direction.
