Verlander Trade

Postby Lundqvist 30 NYR » Tue Apr 02, 2013 2:10 pm

Here is my team in a 14 team h2h dynasty league.

C-Posey
1B- Craig
2B- Uggla
3B- Lawrie
SS- Jeter
IF- Davis
OF- Beltran
OF- Rios
OF- Gordon
OF- Aoki
UTIL- Soriano

Bench: J. Lowrie, Youkilis, Alonso, C. Young (OAK), C. Ross, Gary Sanchez (NYY)

SP- Verlander
SP- Strasburg
RP- Chapman
RP- Veras
P- Lester
P- Fister
P- Holland
P- Miley
P- Corbin

Prospects: Kevin Gausman, Alex Meyer, Tony Cingrani

So the trade is:

I give: Verlander and Chapman

I get: Yasiel Puig, Tommy Milone, Jose Fernandez, Jameson Tailon

This is where the dynasty part comes into play. I think I'd be able to ask for Bundy instead of Tailon, and ask for a closer instead of Milone. Is this trade good/bad for me? What do you think? Little new to fantasy baseball, so all opinions are greatly appreciated.

I think your team is good enough to compete right now and you'd be trading two very valuable players for a bunch of potential that likely won't help you much this year. If I'm trading someone like Verlander I want a more sure return than a few prospects that could just fizzle out, no matter how good those prospects project to be.

What do you think about the second one involving Trout?

Much more intriguing. Trout has crazy value in a dynasty. Anderson is a solid pitcher when healthy and while Wilhelmson is no Chapman, he's a solid closer who should hold his job. I'm not as high on Craig as most people due to the age that he broke out and that he's never played a full season. I could see doing that one, especially if you can flip one of your other OF for another starter.

I just felt that the one involving all of those prospects is just too risky. I'm giving up a top 3 SP and a top 3 RP for a bunch of prospects that could turn out to be good, but could also be busts. The Trout one has got me thinking. And I definitely think I'd be able to trade one of my OF's for a SP.

Ya, the Trout one is one that should just get better for you in the future. It's tough to give up an arm like Verlanders, but pitching is almost always riskier and Trout is a once in a generation talent who should put up monster numbers for years to come. I'd lean towards doing it.

The problem with the first one is that Fernandez hasn't pitched above A ball, not until now. Puig, although he batted like .579 in the spring, didn't take a walk. There is a lot of potential, but I'd need more of a sure thing.

I'm leaning towards accepting the Trout one. I'm just a big fan of Trout, and Anderson is a good pitcher. And then, hopefully I'd be able to trade one of my other OF's for a SP later on.

I would leave the first and take the 2nd.

Trout should be around at an extremely high level for 10+ years and is already crazy good.

Help with mine.
