Keeper trade WHIR

Postby baegames » Mon Apr 22, 2013 9:05 pm

Thinking of offering this trade in an 8 team MLB league. Here are the keeper caveats.

Can be kept for one year at $5 above salary, 2 years at $7 above, 3 years at $9 above, etc.
Additionally, unused FAAB money (we start with $100) can be used as a signing bonus. For example, if you keep Starling Marte at $10 for 3 years, you can use $24 FAAB ($8 per year) so that he actually costs $2/year at auction.

There are two teams who look (already) like they will not make the playoffs (he is 5-25 after 3 weeks).

So, I was thinking of offering:
Evan Gattis (1)
Starling Marte (1)
Manny Machado (8)
Brandon League (1)
Wade Miley (1)
Jose Fernandez (0)


Wilin Rosario (4)
Jay Bruce (16)
Billy Butler (16)
Sergio Romo (7)
Jered Weaver (17)
Cliff Lee (19)

The players I am giving up are potentially much better keepers (most of them have the potential to break out this year), but I would expect the players I am getting in return to be better this year.

Fair offer? Worth making? I was also considering throwing in Carl Crawford (2) for Adam Jones (18), but I am not sure I want to add them in.

Solid trade for you and I doubt you can get Adam Jones too...but you can try...maybe two separate deals take either.

I, too, also like trading away tomorrow for today and think it would definitely benefit your team.
