Dynasty: Trade Latos and Bogaerts for Dickey?

Postby Dragonsmlb » Wed Feb 20, 2013 10:44 am

Hey Guys, would love your input on a dynasty league trade I'm considering.

Long term league, 10 teams, 30 player rosters. 5x5 roto, w/ 1 CI, 1 MI, 3 OF. 1250 IP cap. No salaries (can keep a player forever). No minor league roster - prospects hold a spot on your 30-man roster.

I finished second last year, due to abysmal pitching ratios (3 in ERA, 3 in WHIP). Led the league on offense. Looking to improve that this year and win the title.

I recently traded Billy Butler out of my CI slot, for Cliff Lee. Big pitching staff improvement there. Now I am trying to decide if an additional move is necessary / wise.

I need to cut 3 guys to get down to 30. Preliminary list is: Chris Carpenter, Wilton Lopez, Ichiro/Arod. Any 2 for 1 trades happen before that cut-down date, so they can save me players.

I have been offered RA Dickey for Mat Latos and Xander Bogaerts. Would you take that deal?

Here's my team:

Lineup
C D'Arnaud
1B Pujols
2B Utley
SS Ramirez
3B Cabrera
CI Craig
MI Walker
OF Braun
OF Harper
OF Bautista
UTIL Beltran
Bench
Arod
Werth
Ichiro
Deshields
Bogaerts

Pitching:
Cliff Lee
Adam Wainwright
Yu Darvish
Jeff Zimmermann
Brett Anderson
Mat Latos
Tim Lincecum
Lance Lynn
Taijuan Walker
Chris Carpenter

Jonathan Papelbon
Joel Hanrahan
Rafael Betancourt
Greg Holland
Sergio Santos
Brian Wilson
Wilton Lopez

I wouldn't take that deal. I'm expecting Latos to have a big year and improve with the Reds. He's only 25 and an innings workhorse, and has a lot more left in his tank than Dickey (still not completely sold on the knuckleballer).

I'm also very high on Bogaerts, the guy has room to grow and it already displaying alot of power and speed. He may not end up at SS in the bigs but I think he could be something special.

Yeah as I'm looking at Dickey vs Latos, the projections out there are pretty similar. I think I threw Latos's name out there a little freely because I snagged him really cheap last season when he started off poorly.

Any recommendations on a counter offer that would make sense? He is a mid-tier team trying to build younger. Asked for 3B, to start off the congo

No to trade:
Cut Lopez, Arod and Carp.
Yes Ichiro is getting up there in age but he can still hit in the high 280s/290s and still give you 25-30 SBs I'd take it.

would you guys be more in favor of a Lance Lynn and Bogaerts for Dickey trade, if I offered him that?

I came in 2nd last year, would really like to win a couple more before the team gets old!

Thanks
