Adrian Beltre for Yu Darvish?? !!WHIR!!

Postby javens » Sun Mar 24, 2013 5:24 pm

12-team league, H2H Points, Keeper League (players are under contract for 3 years, after the 3rd year salaries go up $10 each year)
$225 buy in.

I was wondering if I should offer my Adrian Beltre for Yu Darvish, as the owner has indicated that he is looking to trade for a 3B.

Heres my roster and their salaries:

C Napoli, Mike 9
1B Hosmer, Eric 12
2B Murphy, Daniel 1
3B Beltre, Adrian 23
SS Escobar, Alcides 2
MI Hardy, J.J. 4
CI Berkman, Lance 2
OF Bautista, Jose 21
OF Braun, Ryan 37
OF Beltran, Carlos 9
OF Bourn, Michael 14
U Werth, Jayson 3
BN Headley, Chase 11
BN Valdespin, Jordany 1
BN Young, Chris 5
BN Castellanos, Nick 4
BN Rendon, Anthony 1

SP Bumgarner, Madison 22
SP Medlen, Kris 20
SP Floyd, Gavin 2
SP Hellickson, Jeremy 7
SP McDonald, James 3
RP Axford, John 5
RP Cishek, Steve 5
(SP) Garza, Matt 10
(SP) Jackson, Edwin 7
(SP) Worley, Vance 4
(RP) League, Brandon 1
(SP) Taillon, Jameson 1

Clearly a little bit heavy on the offensive side, which I didn't want to do because the league favor SP's slightly. So what do you guys think, should I pursue Yu Darvish with Beltre as my main selling point. Note that I have Chase Headley (when he gets back)to put in if I do trade Beltre.

I don't like it. I think Darvish has a lot to prove.

I would be looking for more than Darvish. IMO for a guy like Beltre you should be able to get someone with a longer track record. I think Darvish has the potential to be a top 10 SP if he cuts down on the walks, but if he doesn't the results could be mediocre. I would shop Beltre for an SP, maybe trying to put a 2 for 1 package together. Or try shopping Headley. He's been overrated by my estimate this pre-season, and even with the injury you might be able to get good return for him.

Help with mine?

I think Beltre should command more of a Sabathia/Weaver/Wainwright level pitcher. Like the guy said, Darvish is very talented but still has something to prove to move a guy like Beltre.

Agree completely. I think you could get more for Beltre, but what is Darvish's salary? That makes a huge difference in the final decision IMO.

I'm a big fan of Darvish this year. I would take him over Sabathia or Wainwright. But I'm not sure that I would give up Beltre to get him. But if your league settings really value pitchers that much, it may be a good move. I think Darvish will be a top ten pitcher this year.

Thanks for help with mine.

Little too much unless that's all you can do.
