HELP!!! Trade or not to trade... HELP will be returned....

Postby mgilly236 » Thu May 16, 2013 4:42 am

Ok, bare with me, I'm new to this... I am in a 10 team Dynasty League. H2H daily W/L. 9x9 batting and pitching categories. Each team has a 40 man roster, 25 active/15 minors. Each player is given three demotion options per contract. Players can be signed up to 3 years (two dynasty players per team at 5 years). League Fee per team is based off half of salary amount at All-Star Break yearly. Teams have first dibs on their own free agents after contract expires (arbritration type raise) Numbers below indicate salary, years signed and options left. * indicates player in minors.

Now thats out of the way here is my dilemna. I am getting hit up on a regular basis for Manny Machado. I have good depth at 3rd (Sandoval/Hanley Ramirez-when healthy). I have Machado sitting in the minors at this time as its tough to get him playing time at 3rd or at DH (Ortiz). I am obviously in no hurry to move him, but always looking for ways to improve or strike at the right time. I was recently offered a trade involving Justin Upton. They want to trade me Justin Upton and Jed Gyorko or Brandon Belt or Aaron Hill for Machado and Cespedes. They also offered Upton along with Markakis or Melky Cabrera. I would like to get Upton, but is he really that big of an upgrade over my OF's that I currently have? Gyorko is a tempting piece, but if I give up Cespedes and Machado for Upton and Gyorko, it almost feels that I am trading Machado straight up for Gyorko. I was almost thinking of countering with Cespedes and Machado and throwing in Jesus Montero (bad contract-plus I have Zunino and D'arnaud in Minors) for Upton, Gyorko and either Wade Miley or Trevor Cahill.

Both rosters are below, any and all help is appreciated and will be returned. Thanks!!!

Whoa, tl;dr please.

I would not do this deal. I look at it as basically trading Justin Upton for Yoenis Cespedes, and tossing in Manny Machado for a passable 2B/3B.

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. Would you make any counters, or hold tight on Machado? I know he's gonna/is good, but I'm sitting pretty good at 3B/DH

I'd probably hold tight onto Machado. He's a sex machine. But if you wanted to, I bet you could bolster your pitching.

I was thinking of going for Shields, but I'd think I would need some more in return.

Counter with Manny for Upton 1-1. Given the contract differences this makes for a fair swap.
