Which AL-Only Keeper Trade do you prefer? WHIR

Postby Uncle Whiskey » Mon Feb 04, 2013 11:19 am

Which of these trades do you prefer?

Chris Perez ($10) for Dylan Bundy ($5)
Chris Perez for Jarrod Parker ($5)
Chris Perez & Matt Joyce ($1) for Chris Davis ($5) and Jarrod Parker
Chris Perez & Matt Joyce for Dylan Bundy and Nick Castellanos ($5)

Both Joyce and Davis are in the last years of their contracts, so it would only be for this year. If Bundy and Castellanos do not start in the majors, they will be slotted as my first two reserve round picks and will not count against my cap. Also, if I trade Joyce in the prospect trade, I would probably opt to keep Michael Saunders ($2) in his place.

I appreciate your help and WHIR if you leave a link.

My current keeper roster is below

10 Team AL-Only Auction Keeper $260 Cap

C: Ianneta ($1) & Pierzynski ($4)
1B: Hosmer ($5)
2B: Keppinger ($2)
3B: Machado ($5)
SS: (none)
MI: (none)
CI: Lawrie ($5)
OF: Bautista ($11) De Aza ($6) Joyce ($1) Trout ($5)
UT: (none)

P: Wei-Yin Chen ($2) Milone ($1) Moore ($5) Chris Perez ($10) Shields ($17)

The last deal. Two top prospects for a closer and a marginal position player. Seems like a great deal to me.

I like the last deal as well best for you. Although, if you took Jarrod Parker I would say that's a decent deal as well, considering with your keepers you should be able to compete this season.

I have no idea why the other guy wants that last deal but it looks great. Maybe he thinks Joyce is primed for a big year? I would like to see you get Jarrod Parker though, could you swing Bundy/Parker for Joyce/Perez?

I'd just take the last deal and run quick.
Dylan Bundy and Nick Castellanos is a great deal if you ask me.
Especially since they don't count against your cap.
Though if you have to keep them "freely" til their ready remember their net cost at that point. But still.
Saunders has some mid-end OF appeal in AL only leagues as a 3rd or 4th OF so and he's cheap at 2 bucks. He can provide you with a 25/20 season potentially and for 2 bucks I"d take that. he's kind of like Coco Crisp was in his prime, some power and speed but not such a great BA. Though with the fences coming up that's why I'm projecting him for a couple of extra homers and in a full season of ABs he might eclipse 20ish SB and push for 100 RBI if he can get hot and hit in a valuable position, they will need his bat to compete. Though Castellanos does kinda not really fill a position of need for you. That is the only downside here if you ask me. Long term he'll be your utility bat. You'll need to work on acquiring 2 closers, some kind of SS (whatever you can get) and another good young arm and your team at least IMO will be set.

Make sure you acquire a closer or two in the draft (go cheaply).

What are players at will be available at your positions of need?

Thanks for your response. Castellanos would probably be an outfielder for me, since De Aza's contract runs up at the end of the year. I can't determine who exactly will be available at each position, because I don't know who is going to get thrown back when we make final keepers.

But here are the current free agents at the positions I need.

SS: Reyes, Hardy, Nakajima, Lowrie, Nunez...I imagine Aybar, Andrus, Jeter, Alexei and Yunel will be thrown back
MI: Cano, Altuve, Beckham...I imagine Kinsler and Pedroia will be thrown back
RP: Jim Johnson, Mariano, Hanrahan, Nathan, Janssen, Madson/Ernesto, Rondon, whoever Houston decides to be their closer *I should be able to pick up two of them cheap...I got Broxton and Perez last year for a total of $13.
SP: There's a good amount of depth out there

Yes 13 bucks for two quality closers absolutely.
I would go in for Reyes that is an elite talent and you have the cap to acquire 2 cheap closers Reyes and maybe one more SP and fill up on guys like Infante, cuddyer (in his minny days), plouffe types that fill multiple positions and will be dirt cheap!

Another vote for the last deal but agree that if you could get Bundy and Parker that would be a real steal.

please help

Unfortunately I can't trade for Parker and Bundy in the same deal, since those players are on different teams. Thanks for the replies so far
