Just pulled off this trade, thoughts? WHIR

Postby erjohnson1 » Sat Jun 02, 2012 1:37 pm

This is a 6x6 roto league with the additional category being OPS and quality starts.

I Got:
Jose Bautista
Andrew Mccutchen
Jered Weaver
John Axford

I Traded:
Ryan Zimmerman
Shin-Soo Choo
David Ortitz
Jason Kipnis
Rafeal Soriano

My team is now:
Buster Posey, SF C
Paul Konerko, CWS 1B
Robinson Cano, NYY 2B
Jose Bautista, Tor 3B
Starlin Castro, ChC SS
Justin Upton, Ari OF
Giancarlo Stanton, Mia OF
Andrew McCutchen, Pit OF
Adam Dunn, CWS Utility

Pitchers:
David Price, TB SP
Daniel Hudson, Ari SP PP
Brandon Morrow, Tor SP DTD
Josh Beckett, Bos SP
R.A. Dickey, NYM SP PP
Madison Bumgarner, SF SP
Anibal Sanchez, Mia SP
Brandon McCarthy, Oak SP PP
Jered Weaver*, LAA SP DL15

Relief Pitchers:
John Axford, Mil RP
Tyler Clippard, Wsh RP

Bench:
Mike Moustakas, KC 3B S
Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Bos C
Ryan Howard*, Phi 1B DL15
Emilio Bonifacio*, Mia SS, 3B, OF DL15

I'm currently in 1st place in my league, but I am last in saves and thrid to last in strikeouts. I lost a lot of depth with this trade, but I had Kipnis and Dunn just sitting on my bench pretty much everyday. My weak point is obviously with my relief pitchers, but saves aren't too valuable in this league since we have the addition of quality starts. My average will also take a hit with the trade due to me now playing Adam Dunn everyday, but I'm hoping that Ryan Howard comes back strong in the next month or so and I'll put him at my Utility spot. What are your guys thought on this trade and my team in general?

Excellent trade, and I think you know it. Having a weak bench isn't that much of a problem in roto. You got the 3 best players in the deal; losing depth is nothing compared to that.

Couldn't agree more. Exactly what I was going to say.
