Deal Harper or hold?

Postby guyincognito » Wed May 16, 2012 12:21 pm

I've been going back and forth with an owner trying to sell Pence and this is where we have come down to:

I give - B.Harper, M.Adams, W.Rodriguez
I get - Pence, Altuve, M.Moore

It is a keeper league, but we only keep 3 players (no restrictions) and right now my keepers are Pujols, Kemp and Longoria. Given my three plus J.Johnson and D.Price as potential keepers as well, do I move Harper to potentially help me out in the short term, or would I be crazy to deal Harper right now?

12 team, H2H, Keeper League (keep 3)
B Cats: Avg, E, H, HR, OPS, R, RBI, SB, K
P Cats: W, K, QS, ERA, WHIP, HD, S, BBI, HA

C - A.J. Pierzynski
1B - A.Pujols
2B - B.Zobrist
SS - R.Furcal
3B - E.Bonifacio
OF - Ichiro, Berkman, Harper
U - D.Ortiz
Bench - Kemp, K.Morales
DL - E.Longoria
SP - D.Price, J.Peavy, J.Beckett, J.Johnson
RP - R.Soriano, S.Casilla, H.Bell, A.Aceves, M.Adams
Bench - W.Rodriguez, R.Nolasco, H.Kuroda, E.Friari
DL - Storen

If you have no intention of keeping Harper, I'd move him.

idk how your league does keepers, but if harper is gonna cost you cheap to keep i would keep harper, kemp, longo and try to draft pujols again.

dont think yourll ever get a chance to keep harper this cheap again.



if you really see no way of keeping him and want to move him i would 1) wait a couple of weeks when his got at least 10 dingers and a couple of SB and really get something for him 2) i would def wait out for a bgetter deal.

Agree with these two here. Your OF could use some upgrades and Harper will do just that. Just may have to be patient the next 1.5 yrs. Unless someone want's to offer you a deal you can't refuse.
