Need to Trade a Prospect, WHIR

Postby NY Knights » Sun Feb 10, 2013 12:38 pm

I'm in a deep mixed roto keeper (14 owners, 40 player rosters). We just finished our draft, and I picked up several good prospects. Unfortunately, I probably got around to OF and SP too late in the draft, and I think now I'm in a position where I may need to trade one or more of the prospects for everyday players before the season begins.

Out of Zunino, Arenado, Rendon, C.Archer, Taillon, and Z.Wheeler, who would you try to deal? Archer and Wheeler might eventually give me the SP help I need, but probably later in the season. I tend to prefer keeping the guys who will help me soonest, but not so much so that I'd overlook a higher ceiling.

Thanks! WHIR

I would not trade Zunino, Wheeler, or Rendon.
Arenado is a bit overrated.
I would try moving Arenado, then Archer.

I'd keep a 3b prospect in Arenado for sure.
Archer probably helps you get the most in return if you can package him correctly.

Before doing anything, I guess put Arenado and Archer on the block and send an email saying these guys are OTB and then get back to us.

Definitely want to keep Rendon and Zunino for sure.
