Need trade help

Postby VitoNY » Sat Feb 02, 2013 5:55 pm

Deep 14 team keeper league (keep 12)

Do I move Adam Jones and a second round pick (14th round after keepers are inserted) for Matt Wieters Andre Eithier and Miguel Sano?

My team looks like this and I have to keep 12

C- AJ Piersynski, Yasmani Grandal
1B - Alonso, Dunn, LaRoche, Singleton
2B - Cano
3B - ARod, Olt
SS- Rutledge
OF - Adam Jones, Justin Upton, Stanton, McCutchen, Soriano, LoMo
SP - Kershaw, Sale, Anderson, Cole, Pineda, Hughes, Cahill, Volquez

Keepers are probably going to be, Cano, Jones, Upton, Stanton, McCutchen, Olt, Singleton, Kershaw, Sale, Anderson, Cole and then one of Rutledge, LaRoche, Pineda, Grandal, Alonso

With the trade I keep Cano, Sano, Wieters, Eithier, Stanton, McCutchen, Kershaw, Sale, Anderson, Cole, Singleton, Olt.

I'd say yes - do it.

It makes sense to want Sano, since it's a deep league, but is he going to make the Twins roster? Adam Jones is a big talent. Obviously you have great depth at OF. But if you're going to trade him, at least get an every day SS or 3B. Rutledge looks good. But depth at SS wouldn't hurt (says captain obvious). And the 2nd round pick as well? That makes me think you're getting hosed, but I don't know the history of your league. I don't think you should keep Ethier. I'd keep Justin Upton instead.

Rework the trade or decline it, in my opinion.

1B - LaRoche
2B - Cano
3B - Olt
SS- Rutledge
OF - Adam Jones, Justin Upton, Stanton, McCutchen
SP - Kershaw, Sale, Hamels, Pineda
This is your team w/o the trade and its prett sick if you ask me. Just so long as Olt makes the rangers squad outta s/t and starts you are set IMO.
Can you keep Singleton as a free prospect keeper?

I wouldn't. Jones is the best player, and you lose a nice pick, and Ethier isn't a keeper to me.

I would stay away from the deal. Jones is the better keeper, you would lose a draft pick and you'd have to drop one of your other keepers that your planning on. I don't like it.

I wasn't clear on my post -- I was also saying to stay put as well. I was saying your team is good as is. ;-D
