Stanton, Hosmer, Harper, Pence

Postby Jase44 » Thu Jul 12, 2012 10:07 am

Roto Keeper League, 10 teams we keep 10 player

Cats (will leave pitching out of this post)

Background - I am in first place the other manager is in last and looking for talent for next year. I have Stanton who I just lost and he wants him. In order to try and keep my 1st place I may have to move him, however it won't be cheap considering it's a keeper.

My Team:
C- Posey
1 - Hosmer
2 - Kipnis
3 - Sandoval
SS - Rollins
OF - Stanton, Trout, Heyward, Markakis
Util - Any BN player
BN - ARam, Quentin, Seager, S.Perez, Aoki, Furcal
DL - Joyce

His Team:
C- Mauer
1 - Morneu
2 - Craig
3 - Beltre
SS - Escobar
OF - Pence, Harper, Cruz, Jennings
Util -
BN - Gordon, Weeks, Morales
DL - Tulo

He offered me Pence and a 2nd for Stanton. I like Pence but it's not enough for the potential Stanton has, even with current injury.

Thinking of offering Stanton + Hosmer for Pence + Harper. He has a gaping whole at first and for this year I can play Posey there with Perez at the plate or Sandoval with Aram at 3rd. This trade will also keep my team strong for next year.

Other option is to decline and just try to platoon Aoki, Joyce, Markakis, Quentin in Stanton's place while injured.

Any thoughts on either of these?

I wouldn't do that deal revolving around Pence honestly.

You should find a better offer from another team.

Well your counter is worse for you than the original which isn't terrible. His OF is pretty solid he doesn't really need another one...

Try Stanton and Quentin for Pence and Jennings. If he won't give you Jennings, ask for Harper or Weeks.
