Two Trades For Playoff Time, Did I Do OK?

Postby pmstick » Mon Jul 16, 2012 3:01 pm

An owner in my league seemed to be fed up with these two so I inherited his headaches and he inherited my roster depth.

Maybe this'll be a good trade for playoff time. It leaves my already inconsistent outfield a little more vulnerable but I figured Craig to lose value now that Berkman is back in the lineup.

Redraft league with pitcher-heavy stats.

Trade 1:
Haren for my Craig/Volquez

Trade 2:
Longoria/R.Tejada for my Aviles/Morneau

Roster went from:
C Weiters
1B Konerko
2B Kipnis (Pedroia+)
3B Moustakas
SS Desmond
OF J.Upton
OF Heyward
OF Holliday
DH Pedroia
BN: Morneau (1B), Aviles (2B, SS, 3B), Craig (1B, OF) , Youkilis (1B, 3B)

SP F.Hernandez
SP any 3 2-starters
SP any 3 2-starters
SP any 3 2-starters
RP A.Reed (closer by committee and 2-start relief-eligibles), Storen+
Potential 2-starters: Lester, Bauer, P.Hughes, Kuroda, Haren, Norris, Oswalt, E.Santana


to:

C Weiters

My team has a ton of question marks and moving parts...I just hope to have a chance come playoff time, I'm 7-8 and currently tied for 3rd in my division.

OK? I'd say you fleeced him on both deals. Haren's due back any day now and with Longoria due back in August, I'd say it gives you a great shot to win.
