Keeper League Trade Help

Postby hscsoph » Wed Jul 04, 2012 12:04 pm

I am currently in 7th and need to improve 1B big time. I have lots of pitching to trade and was wondering if you think Chris Sale for Mike Morse would be worth doing. Also would love any tips on who I could target. I do have a lot of talent at OF. We keep 8 guys each year, I will put a K by guys I kept going into this year. Thanks!

C - Buster Posey (K)
1B - Adam Lind
2B - Ben Zobrist (K)
SS - Yunel Escobar
3B - Chipper Jones
1B/3B - Chris Davis
2B/SS - Alexei Ramirez
OF - Andrew McCutchen (K)
OF - Matt Holliday (K)
OF - Hunter Pence (K)
Util - Nick Swisher, Daniel Murphy
Pitchers - E Santana, David Price (K), Johnny Cueto, Dan Haren (K), Jarrod Parker, Chris Sale, Trevor Bauer, Teheran, Hanrahan, Betencourt
BN/DL - Nolan Arenado, Matt Adams, Morrow, Storen (K), Dempster

You should expect more than Morse for Sale. So since you are unlikely to keep Bauer, I would deal him with maybe another player for an upgrade.

Sale is pitching awesome right now, you're giving up too much just to get Morse.
Maybe you could build a trade with the name value of Bauer to get someone like Goldschmidt.
Identify who has the greatest need for SP and tie Bauer or Cueto or Parker with another solid offensive player for their 1B.
Also, I'd recommend Jarrod Parker or Cueto as more of a keeper than Haren. Haren has fallen off quite a bit.

I would look to sell any of Sale, Parker or Bauer. So you're doing the right thing. I would just expect more than Morse. What about Hosmer?

Thanks for the help guys, I finalized a deal today.

I received Eric Hosmer/Jeremy Hellickson
Gave up Hunter Pence/Joel Hanrahan/Ryan Dempster

Think I won here, I will keep Hosmer and Hellickson and at best was keeping Pence.
