Should I make this trade? WHIR!

Postby onitapgr » Fri Jul 20, 2012 6:40 pm

12 team 5x5 Standard Roto League, 1500 IP limit
Our roster positions are C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, 4 OF, Util, 3 SP, 3 RP, 3 P, 7 Bench, 2 DL
keep any 10 players indefinitely...these 10 keepers are your picks for rounds 1 through 10

Looking ahead to 2013, should I trade Verlander or Strasburg for some combination of Jay Bruce/Eric Hosmer/David Ortiz? What about Greinke?

Here are 7 out of 10 definite keepers on my team right now...

Adrian Gonzalez (Bos - 1B)
Troy Tulowitzki (Col - SS)
Jose Bautista (Tor - OF)
Mike Trout (LAA - OF)
Stephen Strasburg (Was - SP)
Justin Verlander (Det - SP)
Zack Greinke (Mil - SP)

Here's my other keeper possibilities
Jose Altuve (Hou - 2B)
Ike Davis (NYM - 1B)
Desmond Jennings (TB - OF)
Alex Gordon (KC - OF)
Ben Revere (Min - OF)
Anthony Rizzo (CHC - 1B)
Anthony Gose (Tor - OF)
Max Scherzer (Det - SP)

Verlander=top 3 SP
Strasburg=future top 3SP

Jay Bruce/Hosmer=unknown
Ortiz=tail end of career.

I would like to say 'are you crazy?' but my 'regular' respond would be 'No' :)

I'd add Rizzo to that core group and feel ok with Altuve being the 9th guy. The 10th spot a little up for grabs with Jennings winning it right now based soley on potential. If there are no dollar values of draft rounds associated with how you keep players then you need to keep the best guys. It doesn't make sense to downgrade on someone like Verlander to give you a couple of ok guys unless your roster is a complete mess. This isn't the case. You have a nice core to build around. If anything, I would be looking to give up depth to add to it. Maybe a Rizzo/Altuve trade to the Kipnis owner for example.

Good luck!
