Pujols & Sabathia for Hanley & Uggla: ALL HELP RETURNED

Postby kaiser » Wed May 30, 2012 8:03 pm

Leave a link for help returned.

I apologize in advance, because I already posted a variation on this deal earlier. But it got a little convoluted, and I'd like to get a clean set of opinions.

10 team H2H keeper. Keep four. $300 budget. Keeper values listed next to the players.

I give Hanley Ramirez ($44) and Dan Uggla ($28).

I get Albert Pujols ($47) and CC Sabathia ($40).

I recognize that I could use another ace, but my real need is offense, and I am worried that I am giving up too much offense, even if much of it gets replaced with Albert.

If I make this deal, I'd be keeping Pujols, MCab, Cano and Votto for a total of $136.

If I stand pat, I would be keeping MCab, Cano, Votto and Hanley for a total of $133 (or Bruce instead of Hanley for total of $120).

My roster:

C Alex Avila, Det C
1B Miguel Cabrera, Det 1B, 3B ($38)
2B Dan Uggla, Atl 2B
3B Hanley Ramirez, Mia SS, 3B
SS Ian Desmond, Wsh SS
2B/SS Robinson Cano, NYY 2B ($20)
1B/3B Joey Votto, Cin 1B ($31)
OF Jay Bruce, Cin OF ($31)
OF Shane Victorino, Phi OF
OF Cameron Maybin, SD OF
OF Andy Dirks, Det OF, DH
OF Mitch Moreland, Tex 1B, OF
UTIL Kevin Youkilis, Bos 3B

P Zack Greinke, Mil SP
P Madison Bumgarner, SF SP
P Gio Gonzalez, Wsh SP
P Brandon Morrow, Tor SP
P Ervin Santana, LAA SP
P Jason Motte, StL RP
P Alfredo Aceves, Bos RP
P Brian Fuentes, Oak RP
P Casey Janssen, Tor RP
P Joaquin Benoit, Det RP
P Matt Harrison, Tex SP
Bench Heath Bell, Mia RP

I think I'd make the deal. You're obviously getting a big drop off at 2b/SS, as it doesn't appear you have anyone to fill in there, but I think Miggy is a good upgrade over Hanley at 3B. Pujols is pretty much lateral movement at 1B, and Cano is good at 2B over Uggla. I think the boost in pitching makes up for what you're losing in what is already a very formidable offense. And I think in a league where you keep 4, I'd rather have Pujols over Hanley with comparable keeper values

Thanks for the help with mine!

I think I'd make it too. The keeper part (Hanley for Pujols) is probably the most important part of the deal, and I'd take Pujols. I still think your offense will be very solid without Uggla, and Sabathia gives your pitching staff a big boost.

I wouldn't blame you for going either way, but I think it's a solid deal for you.

i think you pull the trigger and make the deal. giving up alot but in the long run you are getting a grest deal of talent that will help down the line (keeper league). Perhaps you are thinking too much ... make the deal and get it done!!! ;-D
