[TRADE] Cabrera and Fister for Verlander and Reyes?

Postby rmessne » Fri Feb 08, 2013 9:55 pm

It's a H2H standard points league, so perennially pitchers score more than hitters. I have Hanley Ramirez (3B/SS) so I would slide him to 3rd and obviously put Reyes at SS. What do you think?

Miguel Cabrera (3B/U) and Doug Fister (SP) for Justin Verlander (SP) and Jose Reyes (SS)

C: Buster Posey (C/1B/U)
1B: Joey Votto (1B/U)
2B: Brandon Phillips (2B/U)
3B: Miguel Cabrera (3B/U)
SS: Hanley Ramirez (3B/SS/U)
OF: Jason Heyward (OF/U)
OF: Adam Jones (OF/U)
OF: Austin Jackson (OF/U)
U: Edwin Encarnacion (1B/U)

Bench: Brett Lawrie (3B/U)

SP: Matt Cain
SP: Doug Fister
SP: Brett Anderson
SP: Matt Harrison
SP: Jonathan Niese
RP: Fernando Rodney
RP: Kris Medlen (SP/RP)

Bench: Matt Harvey, Ryan Dempster, Jarrod Parker, AJ Griffin

Thanks for any input, feel free to make suggestions on the roster!
Keeper League Outfield: Justin Upton, Carlos Gonzalez, Mike Trout, Jason Heyward

Meh. If I'm giving up one of the best players in the game I want him to overpay. This is not an overpay imo.

Bleh, you don't need Reyes.
I can see needing another stud starter, but I'd try to look elsewhere and not go over for #1.
That's a pretty sick team.
I would package Austin Jackson, Brett Lawrie, Doug Fister to that guy for his Verlander or go for a package of a slight upgrade to your OF-3 but with some risk and in his prime (like a Cespedes!) and quality ace like a Weaver.

Nope! Your team is stacked, I would just sit tight with that team and only make trades you are clearly winning.

He's going to need saves, but he can probably work the wire early in the season. If he gets lucky on one or two, it should allow him to hold his own there while his offense and SP boosts his overall numbers.

I think he made another post suggesting that closers aren't that valuable in his league. Besides what SP and RP options are available?

Closers are still valuable but a RP that starts is the more valuable. Saves are 7 pts, Wins are 7 pts. E.g. Kris Medlen, Hisashi Iwakuma, Alexi Ogando to name a few. Iwakuma is on the waivers. Should I drop someone for him? As for closers there's JJ Putz, Bruce Rondon, Huston Street, Broxton, Brandon League. What do you think?
