Which of these guys would you keep?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Mon Jan 07, 2013 6:15 pm

16 teams, 32 man rosters, 260 dollar auction cap, 7x7 roto style, minor leagues too, can keep as many players as you want per year as long as you field a roster of 32 players for 260 bucks.

I have been offered a trade where I get some good players but giving up so low cost possible keepers.

Been offered Pujols(47), Dunn(5), Street(8), Papelbon(15), Rollins(16) for Aybar(7), Ruiz(2) and Murphy(1). Would you keep any of the guys I am getting in this trade so making it worth my time?

My roster going in:


C-Martin(3)
C-Ruiz(2)
1B-Fielder(40)
2B-Zobrist(20)
3B-Chipper(2)
SS-Pennington(2)
MI-Kendrick(15)
CI-Hart(17)
OF-Murphy(1)
OF-Rios(4)
OF-Swisher(11)
OF-Soriano(1)
U-Beltre(30)
U-K.Suzuki(3)
BN-Chris Young(11)
BN-Aybar(7)
BN-Byrd(1)
BN-Raburn(1)
BN-Hafner(1)
Minor-G. Sanchez
Minor-Schoop
Minor-Cuthbert

P-Felix(32)
P-Buerhle(1)
P-AJ Burnett(2)
P-Chen(1)
P-Correia(1)
P-Floyd(3)
P-Jackson(1)
P-Kimbrel(21)
P-Sabathia(28)
BN-Arrieta(1)
BN-Casilla(1)
BN-Detwiler(1)
BN-D. Hernandez(3)
BN-Rauch(1)
BN-H. Rodriquez(1)
BN-Salas(3)

I don't think I would do that trade. Pujols at 47 is just too high for my liking, unless you plan on moving Pujols in another deal and getting cheaper players back.

Even if you didnt keep Pujols but kept the other players, you'd be way over the cap. Are you planning on keeping everyone? That would help in making the determination on this deal. I would say you're dropping Chris Young and Kurt Suzuki for sure, but to make this fit, you're looking at letting Zobrist go, or Fielder with little chance of getting them back in the auction since you'd be near the cap otherwise. So you kind of have to add them to this deal, making the trade not worthwhile. The only play you'd be getting back that I'd consider a value and not market rate is Dunn at 5.

I would think about keeping Dunn and that is about it. Not sure I would keep any of the three guys you are dealing either so you do increase your keeper total by 1.

Ok, so should I do it just to get Dunn? Also been offered a couple of deals for Beltre:

CarGo(43) and Storen(11) for Beltre(30) and Zobrist(20).
Leonys Martin(1) and Desmond Jennings(21) for Beltre(30)

Also been offered the following:

Granderson(39), Stanton(37), Ackley(16), Johan(3), McDonald(2), Wandy(3) for Rios(4), Soriano(1), and Hart(17)

Latos(17) for Burnett(2) and Archie Bradley


Would you guys do any of these deals and if so who would you keep out of these deals and on my original roster?

In a 2 catcher league I would rather have Ruiz than Dunn at those costs. I wouldn't do the initial trade. The Beltre offers aren't close. I could see doing the Latos deal though.

47 for Albert is just too much, regardless of a 16 team league, and he is going to start to decline, it almost started last year until he poured it on. The guy trading him, in my opinion, is not planning on keeping him and want to see if he can get someone to bite.

What do you guys specifically think about the Granderson deal? I find it very tempting....Please help!

Honestly, not thrilled with the Granderson offer either. I mean, it's a killer haul on the surface, but you're sending away some crazy value...Rios at $4 is insane. He's easy $20 value for 2013. As solid ad Grandy and Stanton will be, I don't think either of them will actually come close to their keeper price. Additionally, assuming it's Rafael Soriano and not Alfonso, his role for 2013 isn't determined yet...if he ends up as a CL somewhere, having him for $1 is fantastic.

And I agree with all the other sentiment on the first offer; Pujols isn't worth $47. I'm so-so on Dunn, but I don't think he should be the guy driving any sort of deal. I'd stay put.

Thanks for your input on my Medlen/Craig issue.

I'm not a fan of the Pujols deal, tying up $47 would be too much for my liking. And while the Granderson deal looks like a haul for you, Granderson for a little less than 1/6 of your budget is unappealing to me as well. ANd this is coming from someone who has won leagues with Granderson the last two years...he's clearly on his way down and wouldn't pay that much just for his power.
