Please Help ... WHIR

Postby millican11 » Sat Jul 14, 2012 7:35 pm

12-team mixed keeper league, standard Yahoo! format. I need all the advice I can get on this one. Dunn and Burnett for King Felix and Jeter?

Players Offered by Other Manager:
Felix Hernandez (SP)
Derek Jeter (SS)

Players He Wants From Me:
Adam Dunn (1B, OF)
A.J. Burnett (SP)

HERE IS MY ROSTER AS OF TODAY ...

(C) Y. Molina
(1B) Pujols
(2B) J. Altuve
(3B) Aramis Ramirez
(SS) Mike Aviles
(OF) M. Holliday
(OF) Alex Rios
(OF) Matt Kemp
(UTIL) Adam Dunn

(SP) Justin Verlander
(SP) AJ Burnett
(RP) Alfredo Aceves
(RP) JJ Putz
(P) Jon Lester
(P) Jarrod Parker
(P) Brett Myers

> The manager is requesting my biggest power hitter and 2nd best SP. In return, I get a solid SP and an upgrade at SS. I also have Jason Kubel, Bryce Harper, and Emilio Bonifacio on my bench. As far as pitchers go, I have Wandy Rodriguez, Josh Beckett, and Trevor Bauer on the bench.

> Should I accept the offer or not? If not, should I make a counter offer including only Dunn and Hernandez or is Dunn even on the same level as Hernandez? Adding Hernandez will greatly benefit my starting rotation, but it'll cost me serious pop at the plate. What y'all think? Thanks in advance.

I would do it. You get the best player in the deal and Jeter is Legit. Burnett will regress.

please help

agreed. king felix is by far the best in the deal,.... and the youngest. dunn/burnett are old and will regress some, jeter may a bit too, but felix is a beast!

I think I take the deal. Dunn isn't on the same level as Felix so I don't think he it just for Dunn. I think AJ will still be a solid SP but not to the level of Felix.

I think its a no brainer. Your sending two guys that are inconsistent and could fall off the map in an second for two guys that are... well, King Felix and Derek Jeter.
