Trade away Tulowitzki? WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Fri Jun 22, 2012 9:35 am

I am wondering what to do with Tulowitzki...He has always has injury problems and he's out until end of august...and since we only keep 6 keepers each year (Miggy, Adam Jones, Braun, Justin Upton, Posey, Bumgarner, Kipnis, Tulo - all guys I could keep), should I make either of the following trades, counter offer him or go try to nab someone else?

10 Team H2H (5x5, OBP replaces AVG), keeper (we keep 6)

Here are the top 5 options:
1) I give up Tulo and Haren for Felix and Pence?
2) I give up Tulo, D Hudson and Hellickson for Castro, Hosmer and Hanson or Cliff Lee?
3) I try to make a deal to get Kershaw, Cain or Verlander from another team in the league
4) I go after someone else (please recommend) or stay put with Tulo?

My team:
C- Posey
1B - Miggy
2B - Kipnis
SS - Andrus
3B - Prado
OF - JUpton
OF - Braun
OF - AJones
U - Plouffe
U - Ackley

DL - Tulowitzki

Bumgarner/Haren/DHudson/Cahill/Buchholz/Pettitte
Clippar/Myers/Reed/Capps
DL - Halladay/Storen/Hellickson

As a start, my 5x5obp z score rankings listed Tulo 14th at a 6.56 preseason (max: 10.17, min: -7.27). Tulo contributed 1.55 to OBP, 1.29 to R, 1.95 to RBI, 1.68 to HR, and 0.09 to SB).

Converserly:

Pence: 39th, 3.45; 0.21 OBP, 0.97 R, 1.36 RBI, 0.81 HR, 0.10 SB
Konerko: 26th, 4.08; 1.28 OBP, 0.35 R, 1.62 RBI, 1.72 HR, -0.89 SB

That said, Konerko's a bit dinged up, and older players numbers tend to decline towards the end of the season. I'd call it a wash between the two of them, so it depends on how the rest of your team is built on who I'd go with.

Both Haren and Felix are great, but I trust Felix's dominant history to overcome his early season average stats.

As you said, you don't have to worry about keepers. I'd certainly trust either options 1 or 2 to improve your club for the current year. I also like the idea of trying to trade a package to land Votto, but you may have to give up too much. Last year, the Rockies were out of the hunt and chose to sit Tulo at the end. There's a possibility history could repeat itself, so if you have a shot at the playoffs I say go for either 1, 2, or 3.

I would try #3 first. I think Votto would be my #1 target. Then I would try #1. I really do not like #2 because Konerko would not be one that I would keep because he bound to start to decline. We have heard that for a couple of years now, but it does not to come in 2013 or 2014 for sure.

I love #2 in a keeper. Hosmer and Castro, give me some of that along with Lee, as I would not keep either Lee or Hudson, give me the guy that helps most this year.

Please help with mine.
