Help with trade/keepers! WHIR

Postby spow » Thu Oct 04, 2012 12:01 pm

So my keepers are

Robinson Cano
Andrew McCutchen
Giancarlo Stanton
Jose Bautista
Clayton Kershaw

I got offered Joey Votto and Felix Hernandez/or David Price straight up for Robinson Cano.

Should I do this and keep Votto and Felix or David and not keep one of my other keepers like stanton or Jose? Or keep it like it is?

Thanks in advance. I'll help in return!

What size league? I am assuming that it is 10 or 12 with that much talent on your team. I would then probably make the move. Cano is nice but you can find a solid 2B at draft time but getting a top 1B and a stud SP is too much to pass up. As for who to take, I would probably take Price but I like both a lot so pretty hard to decide between the two.

Straight up it's obvious that you win. But factoring in the loss of one of your current keepers is where it gets dicey. Stanton is the lesser of what you would have left. I would see if you couldn't package Stanton and Bautista/Kershaw together in a 2 for 1 also as a counter move.

The deal breaks down to Votto and Price/Felix for Cano and Stanton which I don't really like. I'd stand pat unless you could make a counter move. Something like Stanton/Kershaw for a Braun/MCab or something.

I agree with this. That is a very good set of keepers so there really is no reason to mess with it unless you can turn a Stanton or Bautista into a high first round player.

Am I the only 1 concerned about Bautista's future? I'd have to consider a slightly lower ranked with less risk involved sure thing option

Depends on who. The guy likely goes late first\early second round next season imo. I do not know where the power came from in the first place with Bautista, so he would make me nervous regardless though. That said, unless you can trade him for some elite player there is little point to giving up on a 40 HR power guy. There simply are not a lot of 40+ HR guys in the post roids era (as it should be) so one that will hit .240+ with that type of power has a lot of value.
