He Wants My Montero - Is There a Match? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Wed May 16, 2012 1:06 pm

This guy wants my Jesus Montero and is offering me deals that aren't too enticing. Who on his team would be worth giving up Montero for? We can only keep 6 players, so while Montero is a great keeper, I'd consider a deal that made a net improvement of my team.

12 Team H2H DAILY LEAGUE with 6 Keepers Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means a keeper entering this season
Stat Categories: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

is this the same team you traded harper for grandy?

cause i would say try to swap montero for harper if he wants him that bad.

the only person i would want on his team fro yours is kenneddy maybe trade montero and bedard/smyly/friedrich/parker for ian.

Since this is a keeper, I would try and work a trade for Harper. If he will not do that, then I would try and get a pitcher from him since it looks like you could use the pitching depth rather then offensive help. If he really wants Montero that bad, maybe he will part with Anibal Sanchez for him? Or package Montero with Bedard for Ian Kennedy.
Those both would be very good trades for you.



help with mine please:

LOL yes.... this guy, like me, trades a LOT. I have received the following players from his team in various deals (not all at once, mind you)

- Granderson
- Stanton
- Pence
- Cain
- Bonifacio
- Dunn
- Hosmer
- Parker
- Hamels

Of the guys he still has on his roster, the following were on my team at one point:

- Alex Gordon
- Ian Kennedy
- Bryce Harper
- Jose Altuve
- David Ortiz
- Vance Worley
- Corey Luebke
- Bryan LaHair
- Anibal Sanchez
- Doug Fister

How has this guy not figured out that he is being taken to the cleaners each and every time he trades you?

Good question!

That being said, do you concur with the idea of Montero and Bedard for Kennedy?
Would I be ok with Doumit at C or should I get Molina somehow?

i think if montero isnt even on your mind about keeping that he is easily replaceable. wilson rosairo is starting to heat up and should be available, ellis plays in a nice lineup could be decent, dourmit can simple hit so hell be fine as well.


if you cant get kennedy i dont see any other player helping you.

Pitching is the only real way you can improve your team here. I agree to go after Kennedy and package a pitcher. Try to get Molina back since youre giving him Montero
