Huge Keeper League Trade!! WHIR

Postby Prooks25 » Tue Aug 07, 2012 9:21 am

12 team 5x5 Roto 1250 IP Limit - Keeper League

I give up:

Andrew McCutchen
Justin Upton
Brett Lawrie

I get:
Ryan Braun
Austin Jackson
Roy Halladay

At first blush, this trade appears very lopsided in favor of the other team. Am I correct in that analysis? And if so, how could this trade be changed in order to be made more fair using the same group of players. Obviously the key player I am trying to acquire is Braun. I do not have much need for Halladay, as he is on the downside of his career anyway.

All players involved in this trade could be kept indefinitely.

Thank you so much for your help!

I don't understand why you'd make this trade at all.

What McCutchen has shown this year, is that he's at least equal to Braun, and moving forward in a keeper league, I'd prefer him to Braun based on age. Upton and Lawrie are both exceptional keepers as well. The Yankees did not believe in Austin Jackson, and I am not in his bandwagon yet either. Halladay is in his age declining years.

Certainly if you removed McCutchen from the deal, I would suggest trading Lawrie and Upton for Braun. I don't know if that would get the deal done, but in no manner should you trade McCutchen.

HIT VETO TRADE NOW!!!

Thank you!

So should I offer Upton and Lawrie for Braun or am I giving up too much in a keeper?

Upton and Lawrie for Braun is a fair deal in my opinion. Your getting the superior consistent talent, and he's getting two high ceiling guys that aren't nearly as dependable.

Thanks for the input.
