Trade Help-NL Keeper

Postby brommy15 » Wed Jan 09, 2013 11:54 am

Standard Roto rules, start 9 pitchers.

Would you trade my Wainwright ($6 for 2013 or $11 for each of 2013 and 2014)

for

his Chapman ($1 in 2013, then I’d either own him for $6 in 2014 or $11 for each of 2014 and 2015)?

Full disclosure: total Reds homer.

That said, it partly has to do with your status in the league. If you've got a legit shot at competing for the crown, keep Wainwright. You know what you are going to get there. Chapman on the other hand could turn out to be a flame throwing mess this season. Cincy intends to stretch him out as a SP, and a little seasoning in AAA is not out of the question. Plus I'd say Chapman is as much a DL risk as Wainwright is.

So, if you're in building mode and can deal with the growing pains of Chapman, go for it. Otherwise keep Wainwright.

If you've got a second, I'd appreciate some input on my trade question...

I think it all depends on roles. With the chatter that Chapman might join the rotation, I am scared to see what his WHIP will look like at the end of the season. I just can't see him lasting 7-8 innings without fatigue and getting lit up as a result. He'll easily exceed the $1 value based on his K rate.

However, if he stays in the bullpen, then I think Chapman is the better choice.

Wainwright at $6 is an awesome price for a proven second tier ace. I wouldn't waste that on hype/potential.

I like Chapmans future opportunities, but I do not want to be the guy that has to have him in 13' while Cincy determines what his future is actually going to be. A fair ERA with a ton of K's and a very questionable WHIP equals 5 innings a game and a 9 win season. Let him iron our the transition from closer to started on the other guys roster.

Wainwright is the more projectable player. I would go with him and hope Chapman's elbow blows up.

This, and then add in the whole "arm fatigue" incident at the end of last year and the whole Chapman situation has the chance to be a nightmare for fantasy owners. Wainwright is the known commodity, I would let someone deal with Chapman.

I'd go Wainer regardless of makeup. I love the proven guy and not the potential mess/blowup/disaster and return to the pen. I love Chapman in the pen, but that isn't the same value as a guy like Wainright. As cheap as you have him, I couldn't trade him for the extra year of Chapman only getting one more year, without knowing a bit more on how it's gonna turn out.

Wainwright as well for me. It's not like it's a ridiculous price difference between them. Wainwright should help much more this season, and potentially longer, with much less risk involved.
