This Guy REALLY wants Stanton WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Thu Apr 04, 2013 3:07 am

I have Stanton in his final keeper year and a guy in my league really wants him. He doesn't want to give up Harper, buthe seems willing to give up other pieces. If I gave him, say, Stanton and Matt Carpenter, are there two guys in his team that would've worth netting? Could I nab Freddie Freeman and Adam Jones? Anyone I could give along with Stanton to net those two?

Hmm. I actually wouldn't mind asking for Desmond and Jones/Freeman in this scenario. I think Desmond is going to finish as a top 3 SS this year, if not the top SS (yes, I know Tulo is raking, but he'll miss 30-40 games, guaranteed).

You can't keep Stanton past this year, and his value is at an all-time high. He may not have such a stellar year if there is no lineup protection whatsoever. A lot of teams could end up pitching around him, and I don't know if many guys would be getting on base to be driven in anyway.

I'd first try Stanton and Carpenter for Desmond, Jones, AND Freeman. Why not? If he wants Stanton as much as he claims, that could actuallly work. He has Espinosa/Lowrie to fill in for Desmond, and he only uses Freeman as a UTL bat right now, with Butler at 1B. If that doesn't work, then maybe cut out Jones or Freeman and try just Stanton on your end. And then, if that doesn't work, you could consider making a 2 for 2 swap.

But you definitely don't want to undersell on Stanton, because he is still a 45 HR threat.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

So he's dead set on not dealing Harper?

In that case I think the deal has to start with Jones then include 2 of the following :(B Upton, Medlen, Desmond, Freeman)

You could always replace Carpenter with someone else like Melky (Who I'm down on) to try and get the deal done

Bump

he'd give me two of: jones, freeman, Beltre and Desmond. He'd also include something smaller as a third player.

Any ideas?

I like Freeman and own him. But I think that you have to ask for the 2 best players in this case. I'd ask for Beltre and Jones. Let us know how it goes.

Help with mine?
