Big Trade a Brewin', Need Help!

Postby studepaber » Thu May 31, 2012 1:39 pm

In a 6x6 H2H keeper league (with a $295 max cap) and this guy is interested in dealing MCab $55 for 4 years to me. He said he was interested in my Darvish $26 for 4 years and Moustakas $2 (increasing by $2 a year for 5 years). I'm not sure if he wants to do that straight up but that almost seems like a no-brainer to me, am I wrong? I have plenty of depth at SP and with Zimmerman sucking and Kemp unhealthy I need some help on my offense.

Anyway my team is..

C - Wieters
1B - Morse
2B - Ackley
SS - Andrus
3B - Zimmerman
OF - Kemp
OF - CarGon
OF - Heyward
UTIL - Markakis

P - Darvish
P - Bumgarner
P - Hanson
P - Halladay (DL grrr)
P - Lewis
P - Kennedy
P - Greinke
P - Jansen
P - Capps
P - G. Holland
P - Wilhelmsen
BN - Desmond
BN - Crow
BN - E. Santana
BN - Thornton

I'm not sure where you stand from a salary cap standpoint (can you afford to add Miggy''s salary?), but value-wise. I like it!

at first i love it migs is the best hitter in the game and is a very proven hitter!!!!

but the one thing is moustakas, the most you spend to keep him in the next 5 years is $10. i think this makes his value whay higher then in other leagues IMO.

but its still not a bad trade

I can afford Miggy, but this trade would put me close to the max budget. I wouldn't mind having him for 4 years though, even if he is $50+ a year. It really hurts to let go of Moustakas, especially when the most I'd ever have to pay for him is $10. I am getting a player with multi-position eligibility though, and he has had a pretty hot May. I think I'm gonna go ahead with this one :-)

If you can afford the deal then do it. Great for you if you don't mind paying Cabrera so much.

Well, he rejected the straight up deal and countered with a trade with me giving up way too much in my opinion. Well take a look for yourselves...

I get:

Miguel Cabrera $55 4 years
Brandon Beachy $13 2 years
Ubaldo Jimenez $12 1 year
Rights to Manny Banuelos
Rights to Tyler Matzek
$10 in Cap $$$

I give:

Yu Darvish $26 4 years
Michael Morse $22 2 years
Madison Bumgarner $4 4 years (goes up $2 a year)
Mike Moustakas $2 5 years (goes up $2 a year)
Rights to Tyler Skaggs
Rights to Christian Yelich
Minor League 2012 pick - 1st round pick

Am I wrong or is this a tad lop-sided?

Not a fan of that deal. Cabrera and Beachy are nice but you are giving up a ton of talent all at very nice prices for the next few years. I think I would rather have the easy price tags than one big hitter.

So now it's back to me proposing a deal for just Miggy. He rejected Miggy for Darvish and Mous. Would I be giving him too much if I gave up Morse and a 1st round minor league pick in addition to Darvish and Mous? That would probably be what it takes to be honest.

Edit: might try Zimmerman instead of Mous (if he has any value at this point)

Anyone have any opinions on Miggy $55 4 years for...

Darvish $26 4 years
Mous $2 for 5 (+$2 each year)
Morse $22 for 2
First round minor league pick in 2012

Also might switch Mous or Morse for Zimmerman, fair trade?
