Help with a trade? WHIR

Postby TheGhost » Tue Mar 26, 2013 9:10 pm

I'm looking to acquire an arm and another owner is actively seeking a trade. Just wondering who I should off for a deal. 10 teams, H2H, 6 keepers, yahoo.

I'm looking at Yovani Gallardo and Jared Weaver but not sure what I can give up for one of those guys. Any thoughts?

My roster:
C: Salvador Perez
1B: Eric Hosmer
2B: Dustin Pedroia
3B: Manny Machado
SS: Starlin Castro
OF: Bryce Harper, Giancarlo Stanton, Jay Bruce
UTL: David Freese, B.J. Upton
Bench: Matt Carpenter, Jurickson Profar, Jonathan Lucroy

SP: Felix Hernandez, Johnny Cueto, Roy Halladay, Ian Kennedy, Mike Minor, Andrew Cashner, James McDonald
RP: J.J. Putz, Tom Wilhelmson, Kenley Jansen

His roster:
C: Miguel Montero
1B: Joey Votto
2B: Kyle Seager
3B: Adrian Beltre
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera
OF: Josh Hamilton, Jacoby Ellsbury, Curtis Granderson
UTL: David Ortiz, Mark Texiera

SP: Jared Weaver, Yovani Gallardo, Ryan Vogelsong, Kyle Lohse, Ryan Dempster, Josh Beckett, Brandon McCarthy, Wade Miley, Colby Lewis, Jason Vargas

RP: Jason Motte, Joe Nathan, Chris Perez

I'd start off by offering Upton for Gallardo and see if he takes it. You are both taking a chance on risky players but you are already stacked at OF and GAllardo I believe has good upside and is ripe to combine more consistency with his crazy talent this season. Hope this helps.

Help with mine?

The main reason I drafted Upton is because of his speed in a potentially very potent offense. Do you think I could make that trade and still compete in the steals category?

You can always compete in steals, especially in a 10-team league. There's plenty of players who can get you 20+ steals and a lot are probably on the WW for you to pick up still. I don't really trust B.J. Upton anyway, and he's going to destroy your batting average. I'd take Gallardo for him easily...he has the 3rd most QS in the past 4 years in all of baseball

I'd take a 30/30 OF even if it meant a slight hit to your BA which Bruce already will do.
Maybe moving Bruce or BJ for Weaver
