Offer Youkilis/Gordon/Lohse for Pablo/Beckett??

Postby mm92280 » Sun Apr 22, 2012 1:25 pm

I have excess outfielders and have looked around a bit at improving my team, particularly 3B. I like Youkilis to produce if he stays healthy but I know there is absolutely no guarantee of that and the odds would seem to definitely be against him getting 500 at bats. So, I am thinking of offering Youkilis, Alex Gordon and Kyle Lohse to another owner for his duo of Pablo Sandoval and Josh Beckett. Sandoval would be a step up for me at 3B, assuming he stays healthy himself and Beckett is a step up from Lohse, though Lohse has certainly performed well. I don't like giving up a 5 tool outfielder like Alex Gordon but I have a glut of outfielders who qualify in LF and I think Gordon would probably need to be included to entice the owner to accept. What do you guys think of the deal? This is a 20 team H2H keeper league

For my league, we count AVG, R, HR, RBI, SB, OPS, and Assists. For pitching, we count Wins, ERA, WHIP, K, Holds, Saves and Complete Games.

Here is my team as it now stands:

C: C. Santana (C, 1B)
1B: A. Dunn (1B)
2B: B. Zobrist (2B, RF)
SS: Y. Escobar (SS)
3B: Youkilis (3B)
LF: A. Gordon (LF)
CF: Cespedes (CF)
RF: C. Gonzalez (RF, CF, LF)
Util: B. Boesch (LF, RF)
Util: N. Reimold (LF)
Bn: L. Scott (LF)
Bn: J. Schafer (CF)
Bn: L. Cain (RF)

SP: C. Hamels
SP: G. Gonzalez
SP: J. Garcia
SP. K. Lohse
SP. K. Drabek
SP: E. Volquez
SP: AJ Burnett
SP: M. Estrada

Worth an offer but I don't think you are giving up enough. I doubt the owner thinks very much of Lohse as this point and is probably pretty happy with Pablo.

Would much rather have the Panda side. Lohse is an obvious mirage and I couldn't avoid Youk enough this year.
