Evaluate this Longoria trade. WHIR (as always)

Postby dcmove2003 » Mon Aug 13, 2012 11:48 pm

I've got a trade proposal to consider. I get Cain, Baumgartner, and Giancarlo Stanton for Longoria, Beltran, and Lincecum. This is a 6x6 roto leaguge (standard categories plus doubles and holds) in which we keep the 3 best players each season (as the 3 keepers count for first 3 rounds of draft no matter what). So Longoria would be a keeper, probably along with Wright, and Matt Holliday as things stand now. Also note that I'm in 2nd place, so have a legit shot at the championship this year. I can gain a few points in each category, and while my biggest opportunity is in ERA and WHIP, I think it's probably too late in the season to really move those needles dramatically.

What do you think of the trade? And which 3 would you keep if I made the trade?

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

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

Thanks for the help in mine! :-)

Honestly I'd ask for a bit more for Longoria, especially for a keeper if you're trading him.

I think you should be looking to move Holliday instead because Longoria will outproduce Holliday for sure next year, and his value should be somewhat similar because he's been playing so well this year.

I've never played in a keeper league so I'm not familiar with the whole 'next year value' deal, but that's what I'd try to do before moving Longo at least

I like this trade for you. You help your pitching staff out for this year. And you gett rid of a couple older players for younger players.
As a keeper I think I would rather have Stanton over Longoria. Pair him with Holiday, and Wright (or Cain if you want a solid arm to build around).

You need thetching help but if you do the deal you will be left without a corner infielder. Who else is on the wire? Based on the trade as I see it now I would do it
Keep
C Napoli
1 Butler/Davis/Hosmer/Dunn
2 Young/Utley/Zobrist
3 Moustakas
SS Bonifacio/E Cabrera
OF Grandy/Choo/Reddick/Kubel
SP Anderson/C Lee/Oswalt
Haren/Moore/A Sanchez
RP Soriano/Myers/Johnson/Aceves/Parnell

Bingo! I think I'd stand pat and look for good stuff from McCarthy and Lincecum the rest of the way.

I'd also stand pat...pitchers can volatile, no matter who they are...If you want to deal Longo, I would look for two pretty nice bats, even if that meant dealing Holliday too...He won't be a top keepers for many more years...Or you could hold onto Longo, and deal Wright and Holliday for 2 top bats.

Hope this helps!

I suppose I'd stand pat too, only because you don't have depth at the corners... unless you do on your bench?

I'd also stand pat, I think you're giving up too much offense for SP. I deduct some value from SP relative to top hitters in 6x6 since they contribute to the 6th cat whereas SP do not.

Help?

I take this deal:

1.) Longoria is overrated. The guy can go on long long cold stretches and has proven an injury liability. Same could be said for Stanton but I like what he is capable of the rest of the way.
2.) Lincecum has been completely unreliable. I take Cain here.
3.) Bumgardner will be big for you down the stretch... I take him over the extra bat in Beltran because big pitching wins in the playoffs... u don't want to be at the mercy of streaming some iffy guy.
