Trade Hanley? WHIR

Postby wyld stallions » Mon May 14, 2012 10:47 am

I really want to trade him, but I am not sure who to target. My team is not bad but I need help. Do you think I should offer Hanley and Longo for M Cabrera and Haren?

Who should I target in a trade? I really like Castro and Tulo at SS and could go after them.

12 team, h2h, 3 man keeper

We start all 9 positions plus one util and one DL spot. We have to pitch 39 innings per week

Scoring:
H, 2, 3, hr, R, RBi, BB, Ave. OBP, SB, SO, Fielding %
W, L, CG, SHO, SO, BB, ERA, WHIP, SV, BSV, Holds

My team:
C: J Montero
1st: Votto, LaRoche
2nd: Kipnis
3rd: Longoria (DL), A Ramirez
SS: Hanley (3,SS), Seager (3,SS)
Util: Jesus Montero
OF: Braun, Crawford (DL), Markakis, Craig (1,2,of)
SP: Gallardo, Bumgardner, Moore, Latos, Danks, Dempster, Scherzer, Hudson (DL), Lynn, Norris
RP: League, Thayer

You're overreaching. I can't see anyone trading away Miguel Cabrera, one of the best 2 or 3 players in baseball, and Haren, one of the most reliable SP out there, for Hanley and his .219 AVG and an injured Longoria.

And there is a pretty big difference between Castro and Tulo, but I would not give you Hanley for Castro, and I wouldn't trade Tulo for Hanley.

I'm holding on to him. I am still confident that he is going to come around soon.

Help with this Lawrie question?

I think you are undervaluing Cabrera and Tulo. Both guys were considered top 5 player last year and I doubt their owners are ready to sell low on them. Castro could be had but I would rather have Hanley than Castro.

Yeah, I am. I just worry about Hanley. I am not keeping him after this year and want to try and get value out of him.

If you want to get value for him, wait until his next hot streak, when the "Hanley is back" talk starts up, and then move him.

I was just offered Tulo for Hanley and Longo. This is tempting, but I feel that since this is a keeper I may be selling short. Longo is a solid keeper at 3rd and Hanley, though under preforming, is not slouch himself. Hanley will prob lose SS elig. next year though.

Do I counter or just except?

He has Kemp, Kendrick, Freese, Ellsbury, VIctorino, Hamel, Darish, Lester

First of all, your user name is awesome. I hope that is a reference to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure because I have not thought about that movie in 15 years! Now to your question, if I were you I would not do that last trade you mentioned, (Tulo for Hanley and Longoria). I think you would be giving up too much. I have HanRam on my team as well and I think he will have a good year this year and put up good numbers. That being said, I agree with the last guy that I would wait a bit for him to go on a tear (he appears that he is getting hot again) and then maximize his value. I think you need pitching, but I doubt he would be willing to trade Hamels but I would make a run for Darvish and especially Lester. You may be able to buy low on Lester right now and maybe package him in a deal if this guy really wants HanRam and Longoria. Hope this helps.

Help with mine please?
