Advise on this my trade for Cabrera please?

Postby smangold4 » Thu Apr 19, 2012 6:42 pm

10 team H2H 5x5 (R,HR,RBI,AVG,SB & W,Sv,K,ERA,WHIP)
My Roster:
C Buster Posey (SF - C)
1B Michael Cuddyer (Col - 1B,2B,OF)
2B Robinson Cano (NYY - 2B)
3B David Wright (NYM - 3B)
SS Starlin Castro (ChC - SS)
OF Austin Jackson (Det - OF)
OF Desmond Jennings (TB - OF)
OF B.J. Upton (TB - OF)DL
Util Zack Cozart (Cin - SS)
Util Jason Kipnis (Cle - 2B)
SP Clayton Kershaw (LAD - SP)
SP Brandon Beachy (Atl - SP)
RP Chris Sale (CWS - RP)
RP Aroldis Chapman (Cin - RP)
P Sean Marshall (Cin - RP)
P Gavin Floyd (CWS - SP)
P Edwin Jackson (Was - SP)
P Mike Minor (Atl - SP)
BN David Ortiz (Bos - Util)
BN Jesus Montero (Sea - Util)
DL Chris Young (Ari - OF)DL
DL Michael Morse (Was - 1B,OF)DL
BN Rick Porcello (Det - SP)
BN Brandon Morrow (Tor - SP)
BN Matt Moore (TB - RP)
BN Jonathon Niese (NYM - SP)
BN Kyle Drabek (Tor - SP)

I'm trading away:
David Wright
Desmond Jennings
Jason Kipnis
Brandon Beachy

I'm receiving:
Miguel Cabrera
Freedie Freeman
Dexter Fowler

I know I over paid a little, but I'm confident in the depth of my lineup, especially with BJ Upton coming back. Cuddyer is raking and can fill in OF until Chris Young returns.
Is this okay deal? Or did I get hosed?

EDIT*
It's worth noting Cabrera has 1B/3B eligibility in my league

Provided Morse and Young come back strong ... I'm ok with it. You did pay a lot more than you probably should have. But that's the premium on adding someone like Cabrera.

Gave up a bit, but Cabrera is a Top 3 pick, cant go wrong. anthing good on the WW to pickup now that you have an extra spot?

Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I was looking at De Aza, Joyce, LaHair, Infante, and Andino. Any one of those guys spark your interest?
