Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 9:15 pm

Hey guys! I am in a 10 team H2H keeper league (normal 5x5, 6 keepers)

I have been offered Verlander and Cuddyer or Kenley Jansen for Tulowitzki, Addison Reed and Hellickson

Would you or would you not do it based on my team below?

My team:
Posey
Miggy
Kipnis
Andrus
Prado
JUpton
Braun
AJones
Ackley
Plouffe
Tulo DL

Pettitte/Bumgarner/Haren/Jiminez/DHudson/Buchholz/Hellickson
Clippard/Myers/Reed/Capps
Storen and Halladay (DL)

Thanks guys!

I don't think I'd do it. This might be a good trade for you this year, but I think you'll be kicking yourself when you're keeping Verlander next year instead of Tulo.

You're going to be throwing a lot of talent back into the pool next year. If I were you I'd be looking to package Kipnis and Andrus to see if you can pull in another top 10 star. I'm pretty sure you're killing on offensive categories already and can take a hit at a position to be loaded for next year while not sacrificing this one.

What top 10 star would up go after?

I have Braun, Tulo, Miggy, Upton, Jones(not sure if he's top 10)...then either Posey, Kipnis or Bumgarner for my 6th keeper

Kemp, Votto, Longoria? I do not know who else would be considered top 10 material.

Pujols or maybe Votto and then you can move Cabrera to 3rd. Maybe throw Prado into the deal if the owner's hesitant.
