Should I trade for Carlos Santana in a keeper?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Fri Dec 28, 2012 10:58 am

14 team, 40 man rosters, 7 player keeper league. 5x5 standard cats. Each player kept loses 3 draft spots from where they were drafted the year before. For example, I am keeping Anthony Rizzo and he was drafted in the 14th round last year so will be a 11th round keeper this year.

I have an offer on the table for my 26th round pick for his Carlos Santana and his 36th round pick. Would you do this if you had my team? My team is as follows:

C-Soto
1B-Pena
2B-Barney
3B-Freese
SS-Desmond
CI-Howard
MI-Young
OF-Brantley
OF-Revere
OF-Melky
OF-J.Upton
U-Ortiz
U-RIzzo
BN-Turner
BN-Blanks
BN-Hudson
BN-Borgeous
BN-Betancourt
BN-Dyson
BN-Hicks
BN-Ibanez
BN-G.Sanchez

P-Bedard
P-Britton
P-Garza
P-Hughes
BN-Kennedy
P-Lohse
P-Motte
P-Norris
P-OSwalt
P-Romero
P-Sale

BN-Betances
BN-Carpenter
BN-Cobb
BN-Hochevar
BN-Matusz

Is that 26th overall pick and 36th overall pick? vs 26th round as listed?

14 team, 40 man rosters, 7 player keeper league. 5x5 standard cats. Each player kept loses 3 draft spots from where they were drafted the year before. For example, I am keeping Anthony Rizzo and he was drafted in the 14th round last year so will be a 11th round keeper this year.

Assuming yes but didn't know if some weird setup

Yes could see moving back 10 spots to get Carlos Santana after all those keepers, sounds solid to upgrade at C

I am glad I asked then, just a little confused. so 7 players are kept across 14 teams and I know you have such deep rosters overall you draft through the 40th round so assumed such low rounds wouldnt even be discussed.

But now that I am clear; to swap 10 rounds back, seems like a slam dunk for you even further to obtain carlos. The cliff from 26th rounder in a 14 team league with 98 players kept to a 36th rounder is nothing (compared to say I don't know the cliff from 10th round to 20th). Will Quality drop, sure but its not that drastic and your obtaining Carlos Santana to man catcher. Thx for confirming it was rounds!

Take the deal. Seems like very good value.

If I didn't do this deal for Santana I was planning on keeping 7 of the following, who would you keep?

Revere (round 9)
Desmond(10)
Freese(11)
Rizzo(12)
Kennedy(12)
Sale(13)
Norris(14)
Romero(16)
Lohse(22)
Melky(24)

Then if I did the deal I would have Santana at round 10. The other players on my roster are too high of picks to keep I think. Thanks and leave your links.

I think getting Santana at that cost is a no brainer especially with your other keeper options.

I would then go with the following 6 as well;


Desmond(10)
Freese(11)
Rizzo(12)
Sale(13)
Lohse(22)
Melky(24)
