Prince/Felix/Lawrie for Tulo/Konerko?

Postby KSChris » Mon Oct 15, 2012 8:25 pm

16 team keeper league. 10 keeper max. $260 cap.

Was offered $11 Tulo and $15 Konerko

FOR

$30 Prince, $24 Felix and $3 Lawrie


Tentative keepers right now are:

Prince 30
Lawrie 3
Machado 3
Pence 11
Adam Jones 31
Starling Marte 3
Wil Myers 3
Felix 24
Dan Straily 5
Rodney 3


Initial feeling is to decline, because Lawrie and Felix are good values and Konerko is a downgrade from Prince, and Tulo has been injury prone.

However 11 for Tulo and a good value on Konerko as well has me needing help with this one.

Trust your gut. I agree with you. A HEALTHY Tulo is great value, but I just don't trust him.

You don't list Felix as a possible keeper. Are you not planning to keep him or was this just a miss?

In a 16 team league, I think you stand pat. You are giving up too much talent and I can't imagine that there will be all that much to buy at auction with the money you save doing this deal.

The idea of having Tulo at that cost is tempting, but I would decline. As mentioned above. Trust your gut.

You are giving up too much reliability in Prince/Felix for the uncertainty of Tulo. Losing the potential of Lawrie hurts as well.
