Re-tooling- King Felix for three pitchers WHIR

Postby bighurt135 » Tue Jul 24, 2012 10:12 pm

So my team is pretty awful this year. 12 teams, keeper league, 5x5, 11 keepers into next year.
I'm thinking of dealing Felix Hernandez plus two throw-ins for Lincecum, Latos, and Brett Anderson.

My current keepers for next year:
McCann, Zobrist, Uggla, Aramis Ramirez, Pence, Stubbs
Hernandez, CJ Wilson, Ian Kennedy
And then two out of: Kyle Seager, Daniel Murphy, Michael Taylor, Danny Hultzen

So pretty bad.
I have also been offered Michael Young and Adrian Beltre for my Hernandez
And Beltre straight up for Kennedy
And my Kyle Lohse for his Ben Revere

Thoughts on trying to get three pitchers for Felix plus a decent pitcher and a throw-in?
Thanks!

I'd do the Beltre for Kennedy deal and hang onto Felix.

Beltre deal is very solid.

Not sure I like the Felix deal. Anderson is a wild card. Lincecum isn't his old self and while I think he is worth buying low for next year, I don't think dealing Felix for him is buying him low. I am not a fan of Latos either, bad ball park and really just not that great. I see you have Hutlzen but are guys like Profar/Oscar Tavarez/Wil Myers/Bundy available? I would take any of those guys as keepers for next (especially over Seager/Murphy/Taylor).

Thanks for the input! I'm considering Kennedy for Beltre. But he is now asking for Felix and has made Gio Gonzalez, Prince Fielder, and Beltre available.

So how does this sound?
My Felix Hernandez, Ian Kennedy, Mark Reynolds
for his Fielder, Gio Gonzalez, and Beltre

I'm trading two keepers for three of his, but he is getting the monster in this deal in Felix.

Do that. Fielder and Beltre are a lot better than your current keepers. Kennedy is easily replaceable. Felix is better than Gio, but not by a ton.
