Trade Stanton and Headley?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Sun Feb 03, 2013 5:40 pm

13 team, NL only, keeper league(8 keepers), Auction type with 260 dollar cap for 23 players, 5x5 roto style.

I have been offered a few trades for Stanton and Headley by this one owner and they are as follows:

My Stanton(28) and Headley(12) for HIS Betancourt(23), Homer Bailey(9), and Tulo(38).

My Stanton(28) and Headley(12) for HIS Yasmani Grandal(5), Yonder Alonso(1), Ryan Vogelsong(2) and Homer Bailey(9).

My Stanton(28) and Headley(12) for HIS Alonso(1), Tulo(38), Bailey(9)

or

My Stanton(28) and Headley(12) for HIS Tulo(38), Alonso(1), and Vogelsong(2)

Should I consider any of these deals? The one that stands out is Betancourt because I don't have a closer and closers go for premium in this league. But Stanton and Headley are at such great prices. Also, if you could pick my 8 keepers I would really appreciate it. Thanks and leave your links!

I'd pass on all of those, easily IMO. Not sure I would trade Headley or Stanton alone for any of those packages. Closers are a dime a dozen, there are always quite a few who crop up during the season...

That's what I thought. Could you help me pick my 8 keepers on my team? Thanks.

Although they would be good value, I don't think you'd be getting enough quality in return for what you'd be giving up. I would totally want to have Stanton this season.

I was thinking that but what about Pierre instead of Garza?

I would pass on all of them as well. Not much to gain trading these two for a $38 Tulo and I would not pay that price for Betancourt even in NL-only. Betancourt is a decent mid-tier closer, but he is not worth $23 in a $260 league imo.

I just got an offer of HIS Jonathan Papelbon(27) and Zach Cozart(14) for MY Jay Bruce(33), Burnett(1), and Maybin(11). What do you think?

If I did this my keepers would probably be:

Papelbon(27)
Scutaro(8)
Stanton(28)
CarGo(42)
Jackson(7)
Garza(20)
Pierre(2)
Headley(12)

What do you think?

I would rather have Bruce. Sort of trading a big bat for the one category closer which I just an not a proponent of.
