Do this huge trade in a dynasty league? WHIR

Postby yanksmets51 » Tue Jul 10, 2012 4:09 pm

Should I make this trade in a 16 team dynasty league where you keep all your players and start 2 1B and 3B.The scoring is standard 5x5 plus OBP and holds.

I give: Hanley, Wright, Ackley

I get: Pujols, Starlin Castro, Mike Moustakas

My team:
C-Wieters
1B-Miggy(would move to 3rd)
1b-Chris Davis
2b-Ackley
3b-hanley
3b-wright
ss-Ruben Tejada(would move to 2b for rest of season)
lf-braun
cf-bj upton
rf-harper
of-reddick
util-ichiro
bench-gordon beckham, ryan roberts, brett wallace, rendon (would eventually be my 2b hopefully), seth smith, gary sanchez.
pitchers-cain, darvish, felix, bundy, bauer, cole, taillon, arroyo, neftali, pineda, b. anderson, motte, r. soriano, pomeranz, harvey.

Would you make this deal?

I like the idea of giving up Wright and Ramirez and receiving Pujols and Castro. You have Miguel to fill in the 3b slot and Pujols is finally settling in nicely in the American League. Castro is a solid hitter in my mind, and his 16 swipes on the season are always helpful.

I definitely do this deal as you can move Miggy to 3rd like you said. You're also getting the best player in the deal in Pujols.

Yes, Pujols and Miggy together will be a great thing.

I like the idea of this deal for you. The only player I think you'll miss is Wright, but Castro and Pujols are definitely upgrades.

I like it! While I think your Pujols expectations can't be the top-3 player he's been in years-past, he's still a fantastic 1B option for the next good chunk of years for you.

As for the rest, I don't think you're losing much at 2B with Ackley, at least not for the next year or two. Losing right will be tough, but I like getting Moustakas and Castro in return, especially in a league where you can absolutely keep them both as long as you like. Too good to pass up IMO

I would do the deal. You get possibly the 2 most valuable guys in the deal. Castro in a dynasty is very valuable at such a shallow position
Keep
C Napoli
1 Butler/Davis/Hosmer/Dunn
2 Young/Utley/Zobrist
3 Moustakas
SS Bonifacio/E Cabrera
OF Grandy/Choo/Reddick/Kubel
SP Anderson/C Lee/Oswalt
Haren/Moore/A Sanchez
RP Soriano/Myers/Johnson/Aceves/Parnell

Take it and run. Castro is an upgrade over HanRam, especially in a keeper. Also, Moustakas is a real nice addition for you as he could give you really good production this year and especially next year. Pujols speaks for itself. Love the deal. Pujols+Miggy is formidable.
