I'm in a 5 keeper roto league, currently In 2nd place behind 9.5 points from 1st place.
My team is as follows
C-Buster Posey 1B-Adam Laroche 2B-Brian Phillips 3B-Jeff keppinger SS- Rafael Furcal OF- Michael Morse OF- Andrew McCutchen OF - Ben Revere Util- Andre Ethier BN (4 spots)- Jose Bautista(DL), Ruben Tejada, Bryce Harper and Domonic Brown
SP-Gio Gonzalez, Adam Wainwright, Jake Peavy, Matt Moore, Bartolo Colon, Ricky Romero, Brett Anderson(DL) RP- Fernando Rodney, Sergio Romo, Vinnie Pestano, Joe Nathan, Alexis Ogando
Here are the stat categories: Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Strikeouts (K), Batting Average (AVG), On-base Percentage (OBP), Net Stolen Bases (NSB)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS), Net Saves (NSV)
The offer made to me: Edwin Encarnacion, Hanley Ramirez, Zack Greinke, Jim Johnson, Addison Reed, Tom Wilhelmsen, James Shields and Daniel Straily
Thats just to big of a deal. I would look at it this way how many of them would be keeping for next year. You upgrade at 3rd, and Pitching. But I only really see two of those guys you would keep over tha rest of the players on your team.
how many of these guys would you keep? Edwin Encarnacion(k), Hanley Ramirez(k), Zack Greinke, Jim Johnson, Addison Reed, Tom Wilhelmsen(k), James Shields (k Maybe) and Daniel Straily(k)
It makes your team better but in the long run im not sure.
It's a classic win now dump trade deal. Yeah it sucks to lose a stud keeper like Cutch, but this trade is all about you being champion in 2012. Are dump trades common in your league? If they aren't, expect some serious griping from the other contenders if you take this.
61* 70**73**762*** MVP****AL07,AL05,NL04,ALNL03,ALNL02,NL01,ALNL00,AL99,ALNL98,ALNL96 RIP Cammi Cmon Bud NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug testing program down Fehr's fat throat and save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
I'm not worried about who I'm keeping. I was already Keeping Posey, Bautista, Harper, Moore and then decide on Encarnacion, Hanley and Greinke.What worried me is that guys like Greinke and Hanley will continue to struggle. If I take this offer will It make my team better. The guys offering the trade also has Heyward and Justin Upton ( Whom he refuses to trade) . He has Soriano, Ichiro and Hosmer.
