Couple of pending trade offers WHIR

Postby Mateo de Lorenzo » Fri Apr 20, 2012 11:28 am

Standard 5x5 roto league with keepers.

Here is my team:


C Arenciba
1B Freeman
2B Freddy Galvis
3B Chisenhall
SS Hardy
MI Jeter
CI Ike Davis
OF Ethier
OF Austin jackson
OF Kemp
OF Rasmus
OF Tabata
UT McCann
BN Daniel Descalaso
DL Utley

SP: Cain, Garcia, Hellickson, Felix, Ubaldo, Kuroda, Niemann, Latos, Wainwright
RP: Guerra, Chris Perez

DL: Utley and Carpenter

Pending FAAB moves: Drop Descalaso add Alexei Casilla and Drop Rasmus add Ben Revere.

I have two offers on the table:

A) I send Felix and Ethier and receive Teixeria and Garza
B) I send Felix and Ethier and receive Ryan Zimmerman and Ian Kinsler

I hate to lose Felix or Ethier, but Ethier may tail off like years past and I am in huge need of a 2B and a 3B. Should I except either offer and if so, which? I assume offer B is the best one for me, but looking for input.
Please help me with analyzing my team? viewtopic.php?f=29&t=433592

I would jump on #2. I think your rotation can take the hit and your infield really needs help. Ethier hasn't played a full season in the past couple of years and I don't see him as a 30 HR guy like his early power surge might suggest given his history.

#2. I'm not high on Teixeira, as I've mentioned many times on the Cafe this year. Felix is a stud and I like Ethier and own him in most leagues this year, but I'd rather have Ian than Felix and rather have Zimmerman than Ethier. I think it's a great deal for you.

Without a doubt take trade offer B. That will move your team up an entire tier.

I came over to help back, but it looks like you've got a quorum and it's unanimous.
