Trade Trout?

Postby plamb23 » Thu Dec 13, 2012 1:08 am

12 Team 5x5 Roto Keeper finished in 1st last year (thanks to Trout)

Was offered Starlin Castro, Alex Gordon, and King Felix

for

Trout and Cozart

Cozart and Lowrie were my SS''s in '12
Wainwright, Price, Scherzer, Garza, Pineda, Beckett are my SP's
McCutchen, Ellsbury, Willingham, Span are OFs

What do you guys think?
Ask for Allen Craig instead of Gordon?

thanks

No.

With that said, how many keepers do you get each year? Would Gordon and/or Castro even be keeper worthy for you? You don't give up Trout for 1 year of those guys...and even if they would be keepable they aren't really an upgrade over what you already have at those positions.

We have 15 keepers and would be able to keep both Gordon and Castro. I was thinking the addition of King Felix would improve overall team stats. But I definitely am holding Trout tight.


Thank you J35J

Keep Trout. Just not enough for you deal him.

That's by no means a bad offer, it's just that Trout's value in a league where you keep 15 indefinitely is just absurd.

I dunno... if you could get him to swap Gordon for a position of need, whatever that is for you, I might pull the trigger there.

I agree that it is a fair(ish) offer. I too would've liked to have seen Gordon replaced with a more sure fire player in the Starlin/Felix category. If someone wants Trout from me they need to seriously overpay. If you get to hold him for as long as you want it would be even harder for me to justify dealing him w/o some HUGE talent coming back the other way.

Yup, the deal isn't terrible. If I'm dealing Trout though I better get some top notch quality guys...not just quantity.

Nope.

You need one top ten and another top twenty, minimum, for Trout right now.

Ok for your trout it would take
King Felix, Miguel Cabrera, Starlin Castro
for your
Mike Trout, and solid role player here.

THAT would be a trade I'd consider.

Well well well... The guy actually has Miggy, so I guess I could try. He also has B Harper and I already inquired about adding---no was the quick response.


I have Willingham, Ellsbury, Zimmerman, Profar, and Kinsler to offer???
Or maybe a Wainwright or Scherzer?
