Trade Headley?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Mon Feb 04, 2013 8:40 pm

13 team, 23 man roster, 8 player keeper league. Auction type with 260 dollar cap, 5x5 roto style.

A guy in my league really wants Chase Headley(12) and offered me Justin Upton(30), Ryan ZImmerman(34), Roy Halladay(35), and Carlos Marmol(23) for him!! I know I won't keep all these guys if I do this trade but is keeping let's say ZImm and Upton worth trading away a cheap Headley? Please help. Thanks.

How many can you keep? There is no way I'd make that deal, none of those prices are great. Dump the Halladay/Marmol and get a decent keeper in there.

Not a chance I'd do that. They're just trying to dump salary to get a cheap player. Keep Headley unless you can set up a trade with someone else for the bigger names you'd be getting in that deal to get a player you need, like a cheap SP or Braun/Posey for some crazy reason.

I'd make the deal to get Upton, possibly keep Zimm too. i'd cut Cargo to make salary room.

You are gaining ZERO value in the players he is offering you. You are giving up approx $13 in perceived value in Headley. I would trade Headley because he is not going to repeat (my opinion) but no way for what he is offering.

I have to agree with what others have posted so far. Headley is the only player on either side of that trade that is at a value. The guy is trying to dump a lot of names at you for a decent keeper. Headley probably won't repeat what he did last year, but he's still a very solid third basemen that should hit around 20 homers, steal 10 bases and post a strong batting average. I would hold on to Headley and watch that owner put those players back in the draft (unless he can find an owner to take the bait).

Thanks for your help on mine.

I agree with the others. Pass on this. I would trade Headly but I think you can get more.

Thanks for the help on mine.
