My Konerko for Price?

Postby Thursday » Tue Jun 26, 2012 8:32 pm

Cafe,

I was offered:

David Price

for my

Paul Konerko

I'm a little short in the pitching region right now - and experiencing a logjam at 1B and util with the callup of Rizzo.

Here's my roster and league specs:

12-team, H2H, 6x6 league (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG., OPS. for hitters, and W, SV, K, Holds, ERA, WHIP for pitchers).

Keeper league, we keep 4:

C - Miguel Montero
1B - Paul Konerko
2B - Jose Altuve
3B - Alex Rodriguez
SS - Jed Lowrie
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Mike Trout
OF - Bryce Harper
Util - Billy Butler
B - Jason Heyward
B - Anthony Rizzo
B - Trevor Plouffe
B - Shin-Soo Choo

SP - Cliff Lee, Yu Darvish, Adam Wainwright, Matt Garza, Ricky Romero, Wei-Yin Chen
RP - Huston Street, Bobby Parnell, Brett Myers
DL - Roy Halladay, Bud Norris


I think it's not bad, it'll free up my util spot, move Butler up to 1B and actually start one of Heyward/Choo/Rizzo, and Plouffe can fill in where needed.


Leave a link when helping so i may help in return.

It's an equal trade overall. I'm a fan of Price's, though I keep getting burned each year by not buying Konerko as the real deal. Not sure why I've felt that way either, as he keeps proving me wrong. That's all besides the point, you do have Butler to shift to 1st and would allow you to play one of your extra outfielders on a regular basis as you said. If Rizzo pans out to equal the hype this year, then you're definitely fine. I think you should do the trade.


Thanks for the help with mine! ;-D

I like it. You've got a solid replacement at 1B with Butler and some other good guys to cover the Util spot. Price will give you a pretty dominant rotation.
