Blockbuster Tulo + Trout Trade! WHIR 100%

Postby lambo1203 » Wed May 08, 2013 11:36 am

So I was just OFFERED this trade from an owner in my league who's in his first year doing fantasy baseball. It's an 8-team ESPN Weekly H2H Keeper Points League, I currently sit at 3-2 (due to some terrible luck) and his team is 1-4 and hurting badly. Here's the offer:

I GIVE UP:
OF Carl Crawford
SP Paul Maholm
SS Asdrubal Cabrera
C/1B Joe Mauer
RP Jim Johnson

I GET:
SS Troy Tulowitzki
OF Mike Trout
SP Jeff Samardzija

POINTS SYSTEM:
1 pt/base, SB, RBI, R, BB, -1/K, CS, E...+/- 5 W/L, +/- 3 SV/BS, .9/IP, 1 pt/K, -1 pt/BB, HB, ER, -2 pt/HR, 5 pts QS, 9 pts CG, 15 SO

This is a no-brainer right?! I'd like to either accept/decline this by late this afternoon so I can still put in waiver claims to pick up people for the two empty roster spots I'll have

My lineup would then look like this:

C Y. Molina
1B Freeman
2B Pedroia
SS Tulo
3B Wright
OF Holliday, Harper, Trout
Util Cespedes, S. Castro
Bench Rizzo, Machado, Markakis, EMPTY, EMPTY
DL A. Hill
SP Wainwright, Zimmermann, Samardzija, Lester, Burnett
RP Medlen, Chapman

My current lineup is:

C Y. Molina
1B Mauer
2B Pedroia
SS Castro
3B Wright
OF Holliday, Harper, Cespedes
Util Machado, Crawford
Bench Rizzo, Markakis, Freeman
DL A. Hill
SP Wainwright, Zimmermann, Maholm, Lester, Burnett
RP Medlen, Chapman
Bench Jim Johnson

Thanks for the help! Leave a link and I'll help 100%

That might be the most one sided trade I have ever seen. Wow just wow. I usually don't think trades should be vetoed unless there is collusion, but if something like this happened in one of my leagues idk what I would do. Take this deal immediately.

Take it and run. Thats a great deal you have plenty of depth on your bench and you're getting Trout and Tulo? Like you said a no brainer.

Help?

Obviously accept this, but don't be surprised if it's questioned and possibly even vetoed. Definitely one sided in your favor by far.

Okay, overwhelming support for it, which I expected. Just wanted to make sure I'm not going crazy.

Is there an argument to present to the league should people start questioning it? His team is 1-4 so far and he's in his first year doing this, but has been a fantasy football champion 3 of the past 5 years so it's not like he's completely clueless to how fantasy sports work. I'm 3-2 and in 3rd in the league, 4 teams make the playoffs.

No. Let me put it to you this way. I would take any of the 3 guys you are getting over any of the 5 you are giving. That combined with the fact that in a league that shallow the guy getting less players always wins there is just no way to defend it. As I said previously probably the most one-sided trade I have ever seen.
