Huge Keeper Trade! WHIR!

Postby GaborikNYR » Tue Jun 05, 2012 10:25 am

12 Team 5x5 Roto 1250IP Limit Keeper league

I trade away:
Jose Bautista
Ian Kennedy

I get:
Johnny Cueto
Vance Worley
Howie Kendrick
Adrian Beltre

I drop:
Nick Markakis
Justin Smoak

Do I get the better value in this deal? We keep 10 at the end of the season.

Thanks!!

Eh so so quality over quantity.
Kendrick is just a solid ball player won't kill ya but won't win it for ya either.
Bautista loses 3b eligibility which hurts his value a little bit, but he is a big time power threat.
Beltre is a beast, but is aging and has regression written all over him.

I think I'd keep bautista because kennedy is in his prime (he's young) not a slouch and bound to turn it around and be like he was last year.

I'd favor the Bautista side here as well. Your getting Quantity, but honestly not good enough. best player in the deal is Bautista by far!

I agree, no trade. Only guy I like that you are getting is Beltre but you are giving up more talent. Not a good way to go.

Don't do it...Kendrick and Worley are pretty average.

Cueto might be a slight upgrade, but Bautista's upside make this a no go for me.

Gotta stick with Bautista/Kennedy. Kennedy was a good bit better in the 2nd half, and something between his '11 and '12 is reasonable for '13. With that and Bautista, the upgrade to Cueto simply isn't worth it.

I need to get on these threads earlier, because I always seem to find myslef just repeating what Maud or RJ or MadDog say, but here I go go again...

You keep Bautista and Kennedy. Even though I prefer Cueto over Kennedy, I like Bautista too much to move him for Beltre and change.

I think people still like getting a general consensus. When we all chime in, it should leave no doubt. ;-D

My only worry is Bautista is coming off a pretty major wrist injury, and if history is any indication wrist injuries with power hitters is not a good thing.

This is a valid point, but the fact remains that Bautista is the only 50 HR threat in the game today, and the potential for a 45 HR/130 RBI season with strong secondary numbers is too much to pass up. It's not an easy deal to pass up, but you have to hold onto Bautista.
