Postby pjalst » Wed Apr 03, 2013 12:48 pm

12 team 5X5 Roto (redraft)

I was offer Jared weaver and Norichika Aoki for my David Price. I would most likely drop Jose Fernandez to make room. I could then trade Maybin and Teixeira for an SP upgrade. Any suggestions?

here's my roster.

C Victor Martinez
1B Albert Pujols
2B Jason Kipnis
3B Pedro Alvarez
SS Ben Zobrist
OF Carlos Gomez
OF Jay Bruce
OF Jose Bautista
Util Justin Morneau
Util Cameron Maybin
BN Eduardo Nunez
BN J.J. Hardy
DL Mark Teixeira

SP David Price
SP Johnny Cueto
RP Fernando Rodney
RP Mariano Rivera
P Ian Kennedy
P Doug Fister
P Steve Cishek
P Paul Maholm
BN Homer Bailey
BN Jaime Garcia
BN Jose Fernandez

no, while weaver has good ERA and WHIP. hes K rate per 9 innings has dropped each year for 3 years now. i would take price over weaver. aoki is nice, i like his value, but price could turn in more of a value gain than weaver and aoki

That's a terrible trade for you. I like Aoki, but not that much. General rule of thumb is that you want to be the one giving up two good players to get one great one, not the reverse. Aoki could be good, but he's FA material at this point. Would you trade Price for Weaver straight up? I sure wouldn't.

That's also a good point. There are times to accept 2 for 1 deals. This isnt one of those times. Keep price, you can get a much better OF upgrade and solid pitcher or two (both with upside) in return for last years cy winner

Yeah, this isn't a good trade.

Also who do you think you would get with Maybin and Teixeira? I can't see anybody giving up a quality SP for those 2.

I think Aoki is a good piece and not WW material, but I still don't think it quite merits Price.
