Need advice.. Trade Cargo+Victorino for Ortiz+J Upton? WHIR

Postby csk3000 » Sat Jun 16, 2012 3:24 am

Hey guys, I'm in my first fantasy baseball season and I'm sitting in 2nd at 8-2. But, my good friend is in 1st at 9-1, and his team is stacked, so I'm going to need to continue to make moves if I'm going to beat him. I've been fortunate, as I've picked up Mark Trumbo, RA Dickey, and Allen Craig from free agency, and I also traded for Jared Weaver, Tulo, and Strasburg in exchange for Reyes, Brandon Morrow, Melky Cabrera, Josh Beckett, and Jim Johnson, which I think was a good value exchange.. right?

Here's my current roster:

C: joe mauer
1st: allen craig
2nd: dan uggla
3rd: adrian beltre
SS: troy tulowitzki
OF: mark trumbo
OF: carlos gonzalez
OF: matt kemp
UTIL: shane victorino/Desmond Jennings (victorino for now, hoping desmond will explode)

bench: whoevers not starting between victorino/jennings, marc scutaro

Pitching:
SP: jared weaver
SP: RA Dickey
SP: Stephen Starsburg
SP: Chris Capuano
SP: Colby Lewis
SP: Edwin Jackson
SP: Hiroki Kuroda
RP: Kenley Jansen
RP: Fernando Rodney
RP: Tyler Clippard
RP: Jonathon Broxton
RP: Matt Capps
RP: Darren O'Day

Obviously tulo/kemp are injured, so I have Marc Scutaro at SS and Victorino + Jennings starting in OF, but lets talk like they are starting, as they will be back relatively soon. I have three trade offers pending I'd like advice on.

#1: I was offered Mike Trout and Jim Johnson for Cargo. I declined, because I think my pitching is good enough where Jim Johnson won't make a big difference, and losing Cargo is too big a loss based on my roster, right?

#2: I trade Cargo, Victorino, and Craig for David Ortiz, Justin Upton, and Bryce Harper. I'm thinking about declining this, because I think Allen Craig is underrated, and the risk involved between Upton/Harper is too great for the stability of Cargo + 2. Thoughts?

#3: I trade Cargo + Victorino for Ortiz + Upton. I'm leaning toward doing this, on the basis that Victorino is a questionable OF starter, where Ortiz + Upton SHOULD both be solid starters late season. Thoughts?

ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED, and I will give you advice if you give me some. Thank you!

I do not like any of those deals for you. Your team is looking very good dude. i'd stand pat

Cargo is second in points behind Hamilton on the year, and I can see him taking that over soon. He plays at coors field.

Don't deal Cargo.

Help with mine, thanks
