Harper/Keeper Trade

Postby FanFix » Mon Aug 06, 2012 1:41 pm

OK, currently in 3rd place, within striking distance in a 12 team, NL only keeper league. Behind in HR/RBI, strong on avg/SB and pitching. Have Bryce Harper as a keeper, with ability to hold him for 4 more years on the cheap. Doubtful I can catch the leader in my current state, but who knows? Offered D Wright (semi-expensive keeper), Jay Bruce, T Colvin for Harper, Gerardo Parra (also a keeper on the cheap) and Ty Wig. All three coming my way are somewhat slumping, but all have some good power compared to what I am losing. Still have Victorino/Altuve/Pierre to make up for the speed loss. Not a big Bruce fan, and Colvin is not a lock to start on any given day. Hate the idea of losing Harper, but if I can win now its worth it. Thoughts?

Map out the rest of your lineup for us. It depends on how big of an upgrade Wright and Bruce are over your current players. I will say though, if you are to deal Harper (especially in an NL only) this is the type of deal that you have to seriously consider.

My feelings are that if you think that you have a legitimate chance to win you go balls out. If you're too concerned about the future you'll never win now. This is a fair return for Harper if you truly are within striking distance. I'd wait for a few more people to chime in, but that's where I stand.

PS - I'm higher on Bruce than you are.

Thanks. I have won a couple times, not afraid to go for it. Damn Harper, and living in in DC, is tough to move though...

I'm an owner as well. Need to put the man crushes aside!

Updated deal...offered Kemp/Holliday/JJ Putz, for Harper/Gerardo Parra/Kenley Jansen/1st round pick for 2013 (NL Farm pick).

VS original deal of D Wright/Jay Bruce/Tyler Colvin for Harper/Parra/Wigginton.

Interesting options. Have Kenley on the cheap for a keeper next year who I would have to move. More HR potential in the aggregate on the original deal, but more certainty (if there is such a thing) in the revised deal.
