Who wins this blockbuster?! WHIR!

Postby emenewe5 » Thu Jun 28, 2012 12:51 pm

Deep, season-long points league

Team "needs" aren't a major factor here. Base value straight-up (again, points league)

Team 1 receives:

2B Kipnis
SS/3B Han-Ram
SP Haren
SP Worley

Team 2 receives:

2B Cano
SP Cain
OF Hunter
1B Pena

Team 1 is in first...Team 2 is in sixth. Team 1 likes getting 2 SPs for depth (CC and Hudson on DL now) and a couple really solid bats. Team 2 likes getting arguably the two best players in the deal and a couple solid vets.

That's tough ... I really like the idea of snagging Cano and Cain though

Pretty close. I like Team 2's get, though, since the players are likely more stable the rest of the way.

Help? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=449701

Well, then I'm glad I didn't make the trade...lol.

Right now, Kipnis isn't far behind Cano in points...and Haren projected higher than Cain did pre-season. So, I was just trying to determine if those two branches of the deal were close enough to land Worley and Han-Ram for Pena and Hunter (which I liked a lot).

But, I agree...Cano's still considerably better than Kip and Cain's emerged as the better option versus Haren. And, since I don't "need" Hanley (with Reyes and Lawrie at SS and 3B), then it's best to take the best players in the deal...even if it's not the most balanced package.

Back to the drawing board...thanks all!
