Trade Longoria or Wright?

Postby dcmove2003 » Fri Jul 27, 2012 2:18 pm

I have a few trade options available to me in a 12-team roto league in which I am currently in 2nd place, but really struggling on the pitching side and could use an upgrade. We also keep top 3 players each season. It's 6x6 Roto (add doubles and Holds)

I can trade Longoria or David Wright for 2 of Cain, Baumgartner, and Gio Gonzalez. I could also hold tight and keep Longoria for next season. alternatively, I could try and a top position player for Longoria (would love Kemp, but doubt his owner would go for that swap). Thoughts?

Current planned keepers would be Longoria, Wright, and probably Matt Holliday.

My team:
C: Yadier Molina
1B: Konerko
2B: Omar Infante (Allen Craig when Longoria returns)
3B: Wright
SS: Rollins
CI: Allen Craig (Longoria when he returns from DL)
OF: Holliday
OF: Beltran
OF: Drew Stubbs
Util: Alfonso Soriano (Ortiz when he returns from DL)
BE: Evan Longoria
BE: David Ortiz

SP: Lincecum
SP: Lance Lynn
SP: James Shields
SP: Mike Fiers
RP: Clippard
RP: Jim Johnson
RP: Kenley Jensen
RP: Grant Balfour
RP: Phil Coke
RP: Sean Marshall
DL: Shawn Marcum

Longoria, no doubt. Wright could have a little more power but he should be anything but 'untouchable' in his career season. Definitely for cain, and i like bumgartner and gio about the same the rest of the way

I like Longo for Cain and Bum. I particularly love Bum. However if you aren't going to keep a pitcher...Bum or Gio are equal really.

I also agree with the previous posters. However, in my league, Longoria's value is not high enough to get Cain and Baum.
