Stay or upgrade keepers? WHIR

Postby wyld stallions » Mon Aug 13, 2012 11:44 am

I thought I had a great team, but am not having a great outcome. I have been hurt by inj. and re-inj. and am not facing not making the playoffs. The trade deadline is Sunday and we have three weeks left in the season. I am 5 games out of 6th, 4 of us are bunched together. Do I try and make a run over the last three weeks for sell of to upgrade for next year?

12 team, h2h, 3 man keeper, 6 teams make the playoffs

We start all 9 positions plus one util. We have to pitch 39 innings per week

Scoring:
H, 2, 3, hr, R, RBi, BB, Ave. OBP, SB, SO, Fielding %
W, L, CG, SHO, SO, BB, ERA, WHIP, SV, BSV, Holds

My team:
C: Dumbit
1st: Votto (DL), Craig (1,2,of)
2nd: Kipnis, Bonifacio (DL)
3rd: Beltre, A Ramirez
SS: Hanley (ss,3), Tulo (DL)
Util:
OF: Braun, Kemp, Bourn
SP: Moore, Latos, Lynn, Scherzer, Burnett, Leake, Minor, Niese
RP: Storen, Reed, Janssen, Frieri

I would keep going with this, but be prepared to give up a few people in the coming days. I feel like there are two options for you: give up some pitching to get average replacements for your injured, or give up some of your position players to bolster your pitching staff and hopefully take most of the pitching categories. Kipnis could be an easy player to trade who has high value, and moving Beltre or Aramis is something you need to do too (unless you're using one of them at util.) You've got a good chance at playoffs, just make a few key trades with those people as one option, or try and unload a few of the pitchers who are hot right now (Moore, Latos)

I was thinking of traiding one of Tulo, Kemp, Braun for a large upgrade at SP. I just don't which three are my best keepers.

I would try and trade Tulo. He's been hurt all year and who knows how he'll come back, but you can sell him high to other owners. Kemp and Braun will be solid for years to come.

I may be able to get Cain and Andrus from the last place team. for Tulo and Leake. He is trying to help his keepers. Thoughts? Or should I target someone else?

If you could get that trade, I'd do it. You instantly add a solid pitcher as a keeper, and most likely half your league will have a top tier pitcher as a keeper.
