Do I trade Moustakas ?

Postby Rally Cat » Tue Dec 18, 2012 10:41 am

I've been offered two trades from two different GM's.
First offer Desmond Jennings 5.00 and Phil Hughes 10.00 He is asking for Moustakas 5.00 and Fernando Rodney 1.00
I asked if he would give me another player instead of Hughes. I don't think I would keep him at 10.00
I might be able to get a pick.

Second offer Eric Hosmer 5.00 and Hultzen ( minor leaguer ) for Moustakas

Jennings, Moustakas and Hosmer will go back in the draft pool after the 2013 season unless they are extended. Extentions are 5.00 per year, can only be extended once and must be done a week before we draft.
I would extend Moustakas for one year if I kept him. Same with Jennings if I trade for him. Not sure about Hosmer.

Third base is weak as of right now. But of course nobody has commited rosters . If push came to shove I could put Keppinger at third base. I'm not a believer in position scaricity. I try to get the best players possible no matter where they play.
12 team AL only 260.00 cap 5 x 5 standard scoring. We can keep upto 8 players but don't have to keep 8.
Players in this league tend to go for high prices at the draft. Example. Miggy went for 50.00 Fielder and Albert went for 49.00

Without knowing the full makeup of your team I'd probably make that deal.

My keepers are :

Moustakas 5.00 Would go to 10.00 if I keep him I would extend him a year. A keeper for 2013/14
Trout 5.00 He will get extended next year
Price 20.00 Was extended by previous owner. A keeper for 2013/14
Eric Aybar 15.00
Keppinger 8.00
Rodney 1.00
Casey Janssen 1.00
Esasmo Ramirez 1.00

Dunn 22.00 ? On the fence . Thats a lot of hrs and rbi . His price is decent given what the league pays. I'm trying to trade him. No takers yet but its early.

Hultzen does not count against keeper if he starts the season in the minors. Plus they are moving the fences in at Safeco.And I don't know enough about him.

Same here. I like Hosmer more than Moustakas straight up so add in a solid SP prospect in Hultzen and I think I make that deal.

hes upped his offer and is now including Grant Balfour 2.00 . So it would be Hosmer, Hultzen and balfour for Moustakas. What am I missing here? He apparently wants MM bad. That would give me three closers for a total of 4.00. I wonder if I could get reed out of him if he wants him that bad.

Might as well try.

It could just be that he's fine at those positions and has nobody at 3B. This is a deep AL only league so 3B could be slim pickings if you don't have anyone. It just depends on the makeup of everyones teams to really determine what everyone is thinking.

He said no to the Reed part of the offer. Its Balfour . Something is holding me back from pulling the trigger on this deal.

You said you're not a believer in position scarcity, and for that reason you should do the trade. Hosmer will bounce back and be better than Moustakas and then the other 2 guys are just bonus.
Keeper League/Points:
C-Jesus Montero

I'm just not sure Hosmer will be better than MM. Well nobody knows that for sure. I'm just trying to see what most everybody else would do in my shoes.

Here is his latest offer to me. He want MM (5.00 ) and AJ Pierzynski ( 2.00 ) . He is offering me Hosmer ( 5.00 ) and Addison Reed ( 2.00 )
I already have Rodney ( 1.00 ) and Casey Janssen( 1.00 ) That would mean I would have three closers going into the draft for a total of 4.00. I like AJ in his now ballpark. Thoughts? Maybe I'm better off taking the other offer of Hosmer, Bafour and Hultzen. Balfour scares me . Although he came back strong after faltering early.
