Trade Bumgarner for Price in a Keeper? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Mon Aug 20, 2012 5:24 pm

I am in a 12-team H2H Keeper. I'd rather have Price (who I'd be receiving) this year, but the thing is that we can keep 4 players next season by forfeiting the round they were originally drafted from. Price was drafted in the 3rd round, while Bum was drafted in the 7th round. With the way Bumgarner is pitching this season, I may seriously consider keeping him for a 7th round pick next season. I am not sure if I would though, because I could keep Rizzo, Bauer, Cashner, etc. for last round picks. Also, I am definitely keeping Kemp (1st round), so that leaves only 3 guys to choose from.

Any advice on this matter? Should I hold on to Bum just incase I decide to keep him? Or deal him for a few week upgrade in Price?

Roster:

C - M Montero
1st - Rizzo
2nd - Kinsler
3rd - Fraizer
SS - Castro
OF - Kemp
OF - Bruce
OF - Ethier
Util - Holliday

Bench: Ortiz (DL), Lawrie (DL)

SPs:

Bumgarner
Lester
Wainwright
Hanson
B Anderson
Harrison
J Johnson
Cashner (DL)

RPs:

Papelbon
Johnson
Holland

Bell
Belissario

I think the round difference between Price and Bumgarner more than makes up for the difference between the two players. I'd hang on to Bumgarner, he has the makeup of a stud for many years to come just like Price.

I would also find a way to keep Rizzo in the last round, that's huge value.

Here's mine thanks for any help you can offer: viewtopic.php?t=451922

Keep Kemp (1), Bumgarner (7), and Rizzo (last) for sure. I don't have the rounds for the rest of the guys so can't say beyond that. Definitely Bumgarner in the 7th over Price in the 3rd though.

Bauer, Rizzo, and Cashner all represent last round picks because they were picked out of FA.
