Castro/Heyward Deal

Postby Element » Sun May 13, 2012 3:49 pm

12-team, 5x5 (OBP instead of runs scored), $260, auction keeper. We can keep up to 7 players by adding $5 to current salary. There is NO BENCH and we get only 10 add/drops all season long (DL/ML replacements don't count). I have 8 remaining. It's wise to go into September with at least 4.

Roster:

C - Mike Napoli $13
C - JP Arencibia $1
1B - Justin Smoak $2
2B - Neil Walker $8
3B - Ryan Zimmerman $25
SS - Dee Gordon $6
UI - Pablo Sandoval (DL) $16
-------Will Middlebrooks (part time - $15)
UI - Justin Morneau (DL) $8
-------Mike Aviles (part time - $15)
OF - Matt Kemp $29
OF - Lance Berkman $10
OF - Jason Heyward $15
OF - Bryce Harper $6
OF - Matt Holliday $26
OF - JD Martinez $15

P - Clayton Kershaw $21
P - Stephen Strasburg $12
P - Doug Fister $10
P - Shaun Marcum $8
P - Chris Carpenter $8
-------Lance Lynn (part time - $15)
P - Trevor Bauer $2
-------Chad Billingsley (part time - $15)
P - Shelby Miller $1
-------Jake Peavy (part time - $15)
P - Sergio Santos $10
-------Henry Rodriguez (part time - $15)
P - Sean Marshall $1

I would get:

Starlin Castro $12
Jose Tabata $6
Kyle Drabek $15

I give:

Jason Heyward
Dee Gordon
Doug Fister

A goal of mine was to acquire a pitcher that I could use one of my waive moves on in order to add Addison Reed. This would accomplish that. I don't really want Tabata, but I need BA and OBA in a bad way and I would be trading away 21 of my team's 32 steals between Heyward & Dee.

Thoughts?

I don't know what the "Part time" means, but no, I think you're losing way too much value even if you count Reed into it.

It's basically:
Castro >> Gordon
Tabata <<<<< Heyward
Reed < Fister

I think Fister has proven that he's back in form and you've got a lot of high-K pitchers and could benefit from Fister's low peripherals. Furthermore, this is a keeper, and giving up Heyward just seems silly.

First off I am a little bias being a cubs fan, but I might do this because Castro is a young talented SS, so he would be great to have in a keeper league, I do see what the guy above me is saying, but I would want Castro on my team.

'part time' players are DL/ML replacements. They would not cost me a waive move to drop once I activate another player.

I missed this last part. Castro $12 is cheaper than Heyward $15 moving forward too ... If that matters. I may be able to get him to take Marcum instead of Fister, but I value the two fairly equally.

i dont do it. heyward is becoming the dynamic player everyone said he was, he will easily have a 20/20 season. he is getting a lot of RBI chances and really is a very good clutch hitter.

Castro may give you 200 hits but his team isnt good and takes away from his offensive numbers.

i think its good he pulled away the trade.
