My Crawford and Hanson for Bryce Harper and Fister WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Jul 16, 2012 10:43 am

Do this deal to get Harper? I could keep Harper as one of my 6 keepers thru the end of the 2014 season. Would I regret dealing Crawford (his elbow concerns me) and can I afford to lose Hanson?

The fact that is a keeper league, I would do this trade....Harper is only going to get better. Crawford is done in my opinion.


see mine

We can only keep 6 and I definitely don't want to weaken my rotation too badly.

Would Harper make the cut?

Current likely keepers:

Braun
Miggy Cabrera
Fielder
Kershaw
Hamels
Ellsbury (?)

How long can you keep players for? Because I think I would keep Harper over Fielder depending on how long.

I have one more year on Fielder, Cabrera, Braun and Ellsbury
I have two more years on Kershaw and Hamels
I would have two more years on Harper .... so I'd have to throw Harper back into the draft in March of 2015.

ALSO, I have the opportunity to trade Prince and Rasmus for Votto and Hosmer ... thoughts there?

I would keep Harper over Ellsbury first, then Fielder.

And I like that deal, I see Rasmus cooling down in the future, and I still have faith in Hosmer.

Help with mine?

So to confirm ... you would do both deals? Any concern with Votto's knee?

I dont think harper can make your keeper list but that doesnt mean you have to stop dealing and cant make room for him. You can package a keeper with others or two keepers and go after a stud. You have to do the deal, crawford's elbow is a ticking time bomb, he already knows hes getting TJ after the year, harper will only go up. Fister and hanson should equal each other out the rest of the way. I would do it. Can you help me

Anyone else?

Really afraid to give up too much pitching and then watch Crawford return to form.

But I do like Harper, esp in a league like mine that counts doubles and triples.
