Who should I offer for Bryce Harper in a keeper league?

Postby Shiti Field » Thu Feb 21, 2013 12:42 am

12 team h2h league with 9 keepers per year: 6 batters, 2 SP, 1 RP.

My keeper list:

Albert Pujols
Josh Hamilton
David Wright
Manny Machado
Curtis Granderson
Mark Teixeria
Zack Grienke
Jordan Zimmermann
Mariano Rivera

His (hitting) keepers are:

Harper
Longoria
Ryan Howard
Anthony Rizzo
Jay Bruce
Chase Headley


I might be crazy enough to offer both Pujols and Hamilton and draft a high end MLB ready prospect to fill the hole. Is that completely insane?

No disrespect intended,, but Harper is 20 years old and his numbers last year made Tex look silly. I think Albert and josh is too much, but maybe Pujols and Tex, but if I had Harper, I would say nope.

I really don't think you have much of a shot here. You can't even approach him from a positional help angle. Both of you guys are keeping two 1B, two 3B and 2 OF. (why even keep 4 corners BTW?) You can try Albert/Granderson for Howard/Harper or Granderson/Wright for Harper/Headley but my guess is he'll pass. Does Greinke significantly upgrade his 2nd SP keep? If so that might be an angle too but really you are limited here. If you try to send him an extra 1B or 3B in the trade he has no room. You have to send him an OF somehow or he'd be silly to even look. My bet is if this guy trades Harper to anyone (and really why should he?) it will be to diversify his own keep options. Someone who can offer an elite MI has a much better shot IMO.

He has 2 1b and 2 3B, so I don't really think your rosters match up well at all for a trade. Maybe Hamilton and Zimmerman or Greinke could be an offer. But who knows? Pujols and Hamilton is to much imo.

I don't know on this one. That "potential thing" might make it too expensive to get him. Either the other owner is super sold on Harper and he'll want a king's ransom from you, or he might think you're super sold on Harper and...he'll want a king's ransom for him.

Worst case scenario, you end up overpaying with high quality guys (which is probably what it'll take) and Harper doesn't "take it to the next level" and you end up regretting the trade.

I think the best approach is to broach the topic to the other owner and see what he wants and then negotiate him down from there if you can (you never know who he'll fancy and maybe he's not as high on Harper as you).

The worst thing you want to do is outbid yourself needlessly.

Good luck.
