Update: Ethier, C Young, R Zimm for Hamels, Cutch, Panda?

Postby Goodshot » Thu May 10, 2012 11:35 am

12team, mixed, roto, 6x6 (r, rbi, hr, sb, avg, ops; w, so, sv, k/bb, era, whip). League is a keeper league with weekly free agent auction.

I give: Andre Ethier, Ryan Zimmerman, Chris Young

I get: Andrew McCutchen, Cole Hamels, Pablo Sandoval

My Team:
Hitters
C: Joe Mauer
1B: Joey Votto
2B: Jason Kipnis
3B: Alex Rodriguez
SS: Elvis Andrus
MI: Erick Aybar
CI: Eric Hosmer
OF: Jason Heyward
OF: Corey Hart
OF: Andre Ethier
OF: Alejandro De Aza
UTIL: Ryan Zimmerman
BE: Danny Espinosa
DL: Chris Young

Pitchers
SP: Adam Wainwright
SP: Tommy Hanson
P: Ian Kennedy
P: Brandon Beachy
P: Mike Minor
P: Drew Smyly
RP: Henry Rodriguez
RP: Scott Downs
BE: Henderson Alvarez
BE: Juan Nicasio
BE: Danny Duffy
BE: Sergio Santos
DL: Andrew Bailey

My pitching cats are pretty bad right now. I need to improve. I'm thinking of adding Felipe Paulino, Addison Reed, or Pestano and dropping Duffy.

Also planning on adding Andy Dirks and dropping Espinosa.


Edit: He countered the original offer. Instead of me giving up Ian Kennedy I'd give up Chris Young.

I like the trade for you even without Panda, Cutch and Hamels are the better players in the deal, take it and run and if Sandoval comes back decent you trade raped him. Also pick up Reed, he will be the closer for the Sox.

Yep good deal for you. Don't love getting Pablo because i think his value could be limited once he returns but getting McCutchen and Hamels is too good to pass up.

i think this is a great trade for you, especially since this is a keeper. mccutchen is a rising star. cole hamels is a star. pablo is a very good hitter who keeps hi ops up with this high avg and has power.

hamels > kennedy
mccutchen > ethier (at least in the long run)
sandoval > zimmerman (so overrated)

Thanks for the replies.

I guess I just don't think McCutchen is as valuable as most do. Except for SB, Ethier seems capable of performing simalarly to Cutch in every category. I'd give Ethier the edge in RBI's and Cutch in the edge in R's.

Also due to this being a auction league, Ethier probably has the best keeper value because he was pretty cheap. That's not too important though.

+1

I've said it before but most people don't realize that Pablo is only 25. If he can stop breaking his hands I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him as a top 25 player for the next decade. This is just my opinion but I think Pablo is vastly underrated while Zimmerman is vastly overrated.

In a keeper you win on all fronts in this trade.

id pull the trigger, its not like your losing anything at 3rd with Arod playing. Cutch will give you more depth in OF and Sandoval shouldnt be gone that long anyways, and even though i hate Hamels, hes a good pitcher. Help w/ mine?

Take this trade before the other owner pulls it away...If you are proposing though don't expect him to accept.

How I see it:

Mccutchen>>>Ethier and it's not close
Hamels>Zimmermann
Panda>Chris Young...even if Panda is out longer, last year he proved he could bounce back from this injury.
