Auction League Trade - McCutcheon for Votto

Postby jonance » Wed Feb 20, 2013 9:46 am

12 Team Head to Head Auction Keeper League
6x6 Scoring (OPS + HLD are extra categories)
$300 Salary Cap

I am currently in discussions with an owner who has Andrew McCutcheon on a 4 year contract at $5/year. I currently own Joey Votto in the last year of his deal at $19. In our league we have the option to resign our players at 1.5x the contract value....so next year and beyond (up to 5 years) I can resign him at $29. I have Prince at $27 this year, and will likely resign him at $41 next year as well, and the $24 savings will help there with flexibility.

I would go into what I think the pro's and cons are of each player...but you all know them. Sooooo...would you make this deal? :-o

Here is my roster along with the contracts I have them at.

C- Jonathan Lucroy $2 1 YEAR
1B - Prince Fielder $27 1 YEAR
2B - Robinson Cano $23 5 YEARS
3B - Evan Longoria $35 1 YEAR
SS - Jose Reyes $21 5 YEARS
OF - Allen Craig $5 4 YEARS
OF - Yeonnis Cespedes $12 4 YEARS
OF - Josh Willingham $9 2 YEARS
UTIL - Troy Tulowitzki $21 4 YEARS
UTIL - Joey Votto $19 1 YEAR
BN - Carlos Gomez $12 1 YEAR

SP - Adam Wainwright $12 3 YEARS
SP - Chris Sale $3 5 YEARS
SP - Tim Lincecum $15 2 YEARS
SP - C. J. Wilson $2 3 YEARS
SP - James Shields $14 1 YEAR
SP - Hiroki Kuroda $2 1 YEAR
SP - Ross Detwiler $6 1 YEAR
SP - Andy Pettitte $1 1 YEAR

RP - Sergio Romo $3 3 YEARS
RP - Jason Motte $2 2 YEARS
RP - Tom Wilhelmson $3 1 YEAR
RP - Mitchell Boggs $2 1 YEAR
RP - Sean Marshall $6 1 YEAR
RP - Vinnie Pestano $10 1 YEAR

Oscar Taveras (minors) $2 4 YEARS

I'd take McCutchen over Votto. Hope I understood your $ analysis---this would save you 24? and you'd get the better player? go for it if thats the case

Yea you do that deal and you can always bring up Middlebrooks or use the extra OF at utility.
Yes you do it.
