Trade Yadier Molina for Dan Haren?

Postby USBlues19 » Mon Apr 30, 2012 3:27 pm

Hi, fantasy baseball Newbie here. I think the answer is "yes", but what do I know??? Plus I'm suspicious of all proposed trades in fantasy.

Someone offered me Dan Haren for Yadier Molina.

8 team rotissierie league, 5x5. (R, HR, RBI, BA, SB). (K, W, SV, ERA, WHIP).

I'm currently in 2nd place, 1st place most of the year so far. My offense is killing it. My pitching is not. (8+7+8+8+8 points for offense). (3+1+7+1+4 for pitching).

Here's who I have:
C Yadier Molina, StL C
1B Adrian Gonzalez, Bos 1B
2B Dustin Pedroia, Bos 2B
3B Adrian Beltre, Tex 3B
SS Asdrubal Cabrera, Cle SS
2B/SS Dee Gordon, LAD SS
1B/3B David Wright, NYM 3B
OF Matt Kemp, LAD OF
OF Adam Jones, Bal OF
OF Jason Heyward, Atl OF
OF Josh Willingham, Min OF, DH
OF Yoenis Cespedes, Oak OF
UTIL Michael Young, Tex 1B, 3B, DH

Bench Carlos Santana, Cle C, 1B
Bench Rickie Weeks, Mil 2B
DL Lance Berkman*, StL 1B, OF  DL15


P CC Sabathia, NYY SP

I would say yes, even before I saw that you have Carlos Santana on the bench. Do it before the guy changes his mind.

OK, thanks guys. I'm doing it! It was a nice luxury to have 2 quality catchers to plug in on an off day or to ride the hot hand (although I usually bench the wrong guy). But clearly my team is too offense heavy.

I see you're already taking it, but just wanted to throw in my two cents. Not sure what the other manager is thinking, but yes...definitely take that one. So nice trade if it passes through the league!

A top 15 fantasy pitcher for an average catcher? Sure!
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

sigh....obviously take the deal. Haren is a top 15 pitcher. Whoever is trading with you must have some awesome pitchers on his team..jeez

:-) Sorry for the obvious question. My first time playing fantasy baseball and my first trade. I thought it was a good deal but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something!

He's got Halladay, Beachy, Lohse, Price, Santana, Colon as his other SP's.
(Nathan, Kimbrel, Guerra, Thornton as RP).

It's an 8 team league, so I guess the teams are somewhat stacked.

And Yaddy is on fire so fire, hitting .316, 4 HR, 15 RBI. He'll probably come down to earth, but hey, it's not illegal to sell high to a team desperate for offense, is it? ;-)
