Beltran trade...

Postby gatornuggets » Sat Jun 09, 2012 12:20 pm

I'm currently second in my 10 team non keeper mixed head to head league. (standard ESPN rules). I rank high in all offensive categories except average, though slowly improving. Pitching wise, my only strength is saves however I am losing Clippard soon. My starters outside of Hamels have been so abismal that I am going to concentrate on saves, era, and whip the rest of the way while streaming favorable matchups.

The trade offer for Carlos Beltran is Mark Trumbo, Joe Nathan, Ryan Howard, and Clay Bucholz.

I know Trumbo's average will regress but the power and production is real. Who knows what Howard will give the rest of the season. Bucholz seems to be finding his groove with a string of quality starts and some backing from the offense. And Nathan is no doubt one of the top closers.

The rest of my team is as follows:
Joe Mauer
Justin Morneau
Ian Kinsler
Starlin Castro
Mike Aviles
Paul Konerko
Carlos Beltran
Cameron Maybin
Mike Trout
Desmond Jennings
Colby Rasmus
Nick Swisher
Jesus Montero
Will Middlebrooks
Nolan Reimold on DL

Cole Hamels
James Shields (needs to get it together)
Ryan Dempster
AJ Burnett
Jonathan Papelbon
Alfredo Aceves
Scott Downs
Rafael Soriano
Tyler Clippard
Erik Bedard - streamer spot

I am considering counter offering with Trumbo, Austin Jackson, and Joe Nathan in return for Beltran.

His team is near the top in every offensive category so I am worried about giving him too much offense with Beltran but I seem to be getting a lot in return for other categories. The rest of his team is as follows.

Carlos Ruiz
Adrian Gonzalez
Omar Infante
Adrian Beltre
Jed Lowrie
Rafael Furcal
Kevin Youkilis
Carlos Gonzalez
Michael Bourn
Alfonso Soriano
Mark Trumbo
Raul ibanez
Adam Dunn
Dee Gordon
Austin Jackson
Ryan Howard

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You need a 3b see if you can squeeze Beltre and a closer out of him.
