My Sale/Beltran for his CarGo. Need some advice! WHIR

Postby i_b_sparks » Wed Jun 06, 2012 1:35 pm

I have offered my Chris Sale and Carlos Beltran for his Carlos Gonzalez. I hate giving up Sale while he is killing it, but I'm afraid of the wear and tear on his elbow and an IP cap later this year when I need him most. Plus he has SP/RP eligibility so I can have 6 starters and 1 RP which has come in quite handy. My pitching is pretty deep and I think I can survive without him. Beltran is always an injury risk and I feel like I've got more than I expected out of him so far this season. I'd love to replace Beltran with CarGo, but Sale has to be in the trade to make it happen due to SP/RP eligibilty. I'll probably drop Ibanez if this goes through and pick up a SP. McCarthy, Cahill, Saunders, and Hughes are available. Am I giving too much? Need some advice.

I am currently in 3rd place out of 10 teams. Top 4 make playoffs.

10 team H2H standard scoring. Weekly roster locks. Re-draft.

Pretty good trade for both.


I personally wouldn't do it. While Beltran ISNT CarGo, he comes close, especially in that Cardinals lineup.

Sale is the difference maker in the deal for me.


50/50 IMO, If you decide to do it wouldn't be a bad thing. Getting the best player in a trade is rarely a negative.

That's how I feel. My OF isn't bad but if Beltran's knee keeps acting up and hes only used as a pinch hitter, then my OF will become bad. I just really hate to give up Sale. Thanks for the input.

DO IT AND RUN!

Beltran is old and a huge injury risk, who is performing far above what I believe he will do the rest of the season, and Sale is a good pitcher. CarGo is a star.

Personally I would take Cargo+McCarthy over Beltran+Sale any day. But its realistic so I can see him accepting it.

Really like this deal. Esp since its no keeper. Cargo is a monster right now and will be the best player in this deal throughout the year. Sale has been lights out but when they start to figure him out could see a drop in numbers as well as the whol IP limit.

I say DO IT

help?

Cargo has extra value in a H2H league. He's abn absolute MONSTER a home and can win the weeks for you single handedly when Colorado is at home.
