Dynasty Trade How Did I Do WHIR

Postby germani40 » Fri Jul 20, 2012 7:22 am

19 team dynasty league the numbers after the player is their salary and the year they can be kept until. Currently in 10th place and the top 6 make the playoffs. We play each team every week so you go 19-0 or 18-1 etc. I am 29 games out of the playoffs right now so I am looking to play for next year.

I gave
Lester 18.26 2016
Zambrano .41 2012
Alcides Escobar .41 2013

I got
Reyes 15.47 2016
3rd round pick
Keep
C Napoli
1 Butler/Davis/Hosmer/Dunn
2 Young/Utley/Zobrist
3 Moustakas
SS Bonifacio/E Cabrera
OF Grandy/Choo/Reddick/Kubel
SP Anderson/C Lee/Oswalt
Haren/Moore/A Sanchez
RP Soriano/Myers/Johnson/Aceves/Parnell

I think it's a good trade. It is a pity that you had to give away Alcides Escobar since he's really cheap and has blown up this year, but he is only good for one more year. The other two aren't as vital, and Lester is looking more like an SP3 these days so he's a pretty risky keep for next year at that price.

Reyes is great for a another couple of years, but it's that third round pick that probably made this trade worth it. You get a more expensive Escobar guy but you also get an extra player. Hopefully that player makes this trade a great one for you.

So you saved some loot, upgraded your SS position and picked up a draft pick for Lester and Escobar basically. I like it!

I like this deal a lot. Lester is looking less and less appealing and you didn't give up too much to get a potential top SS for the next 4 years.

Good trade:

- Lester isn't doing you any favors this year and I think I like Reyes' outlook over his
- Zambrano just isn't trustworthy anymore
- Escobar is blossoming but is worth moving to upgrade to Reyes AND to get that third round pick


Help me out please?

Couldn't agree more with the above rationale, and I think Reyes will actually improve the more he gets used to his "new" situation in Miami.
