Postby choan15 » Thu Jul 19, 2012 1:24 pm

In a head to head 11 team league non keeper

I was offered My Peavy and Moustakas for his Pence, Willingham, and Longoria. Should i do this deal? I have no use for moustakas but he was thrown in on my last trade. However, that left me with out an OF so I really need to free up room. because Im set at 3b with miggy. I don't really want longoria because obviously I have no use for him either but I have an open dl spot. heres my roster.

I think it's a wash, but if you want to get an OF then go for it. I think Longoria will help you down the line, so think of this as a future investment in case you need to make a future trade. You could always find a team for Tex to get someone, then let Cabrera slide into 1B while Longoria goes to 3B. Hey, options are always nice.

I think that you win this by a fairly large margin. Break it up.

Peavy < Pence. I'd much rather have Pence and you NEED the OF'er. So this is a win in itself.

You're then acquiring Willingham and Longo for Moustakas. YES PLEASE!!! Even if these players aren't mainstays in your lineup .... you're increasing your trade value by a mile and giving yourself a ton of roster flexibility.

I'm not really sure that Longoria comes back to make a big splash, so that's why a Willingham/Longo for Moustakas might be more of a wash. If, of course, he comes out blazing then it's a win, but I doubt that happens. I would still make the deal and hope for big stats.

Would I be better off if I just accepted Willingham for Moustakas instead and hang on to Peavy or go through with peavy,moustakas for pence,willingham, longoria to open lots of trade possibilities in the future?

I'm not a big Longoria guy, but many are. So if you can get him and spin him at the fantasy trade deadline for a pitcher better than Peavy, then why not?

I would go for it...it's a risk, but always that chance...plus bats are worth more than arms anyways

update to my post, he countered the trade.
