Grienke/Willingham FOR Hosmer (WHIR)

Postby BUCCOFAN » Thu Jul 19, 2012 1:17 pm

14 team league, deep roster perameters Fantasy Points Auction Keeper League. Players have 3 year contracts then become free agents, We start 2-Catchers 2-1B 2-2B 2-3B 2-SS 5-OF 1-DH 8-Pitchers weekly.......
I hate losing the major upside in Eric Hosmer for 2013, but he has had a terrible season....and is probably my best asset to deal to a rebuilding club.

I am currently in 1st place by 300FP, this pending deal would put me at my cap for starting salary, but it also gives me depth.

I GET: (Salary) (Contract Year)
P - Z.Grienke $31 (1) (can keep for 2 more years at that salary, debate-able if I would keep him anyways, but I could really use the "ACE" in my rotation NOW as my auctioned "ACE" in Lester has been awful this season)
OF/DH - J.Willingham $1 (3) (free agent at seasons end, we need DH eligible players in our league, he fits the bill as I would move Butler to 1B)

HE GETS: (Salary) (Contract Year)
1B - E.Hosmer $8 (2) (has one more season at that current value, Has been a depressing year for him, I expected more, and expect him to have a solid 2013, have to give something to get something)

My Current 1B: (we start 2 weekly)
A.Gonzalez $33 (3)
E.Hosmer $8 (2)
A.Craig $5 (1)
B.Butler $14 (3) (currently is my DH, but would move him to 1B with Hosmer gone)

My Current Pitchers: (we start any 8 pitchers weekly)
J.Lester $31 (1)
J.Zimmermann $5 (3)
J.McDonald $6 (1)
T.Hudson $4 (1)
AJ.Burnett $3 (1)
J.Hanrahan $1 (2)
T.Clippard $3 (1)
J.Hellickson $3 (3)
R.Betancourt $6 (1)
J.Blanton $1 (1)
S.Marcum $2 (1) (currently on DL)
C.Luebke $1 (2) (currently on DL)
J.Niemann $5 (1) (currently on DL)

Play to win. If these pieces secure your spot at the top then forget the ramifications. Go for the glory and the winnings if there are any and worry about 'what could be' in the offseason. At least you'll be the champ.

Yeah, if you have a chance to contend, that's the point of these things anyway. You have to do what you have to do to win. It's what GMs in real life do. I would go for it.
