Granderson's value?

Postby chillbro » Fri May 17, 2013 12:00 pm

I need to clear up some space on my roster in OF and someone's interested in Grandy. Need some opinions on these trades (I haven't offered any yet)
1. Granderson/ J. Zimmerman for S. Strasburg
2. Granderson for D. Price
3. Granderson for I. Desmond

And unrelated: 4. D. Jennings/ C. Crawford for CJ Wilson/E. Andrus

I know it's a lot of trades but all help is appreciated and WHIR just post your link ;-D

Trade 1, no. Zimmermann's a man. Strasburg is a man, too, but that's too much to give up.
Trade 2, no. D. Price is a buy-low candidate right now, and Granderson is, well, Granderson. More valuable than Price at this point.
Trade 3, maybe. If you are in need of a SS and not CF, Desmond is solid. I might actually do that deal.

Trade 4, I'm not so sure. I like Jennings a lot for some reason. He gets on base, swipes bags, has pop. Crawford is hot right now, but who knows if he keeps it up. Andrus is great if you need a SS who can steal bags, and I'm not very confident in CJ. Walking too many guys right now. I don't think I'd do this deal. You could probably get similar production out of a guy like Andrus for a lower price.

Good luck!

First let me say i am not too high in Grandy this year. If his power doesn't fully return, then he's an average player at best.

Grandy/JZimm is too much to give up for Stras. You could probably get Stras for Grandy alone. Price is hurt and hasn't been too sharp this year, so I would pass on that one. The I. Desmond deal is an interesting one. If you need a SS, then I would consider that one. ID will bat fir a good average and go 20/20 at a shallow position.

With the other deal, it depends on needs. Again, if you need a SS, then maybe. But unless you are desperate, I would hold onto DJ and CC.

Thanks guys that was actually really helpful. Definitely did not expect those responses w/ regards to J. Zimmermann, or price.
Additional info:
-I have Reyes on DL at SS So I'm not in need of a long term replacement necessarily, but it's going to be annoying seeing as my other 2 ss are rutledge and D. Gordon.
-Keeper league and h2h so power hitters w/ low avg. like Grandy are actually more productive
-Current startable OFs: Harper, Kemp, Grandy, Crawford, Morse. Also have A. Rizzo and A. Gonzalez to put in 1b/Util spots.
-he has sandoval and I'm looking for an upgrade over Prado at 3b
