Trade Encarnacion? WHIR

Postby mzkp54 » Tue May 21, 2013 5:37 pm

An owner approached me about trading Encarcion. He offered Mauer for Encarcion straight up, which I'm not so interested in. 2 pieces that he has which I would prefer are Tulo and Verlander. Am I overvaluing Encarcion? With Goldschmidt I feel like he would be a good piece to trade. What would be a reasonable counter? And what do you see as my biggest team needs?

Thanks ahead of time.

Here is my team. 12 team, 5X5 with OBP and QS instead of AVG and W

C-Lucroy
1B- Encarcion
2B- Utley
3B- Trumbo
SS- Andrus
OF- Kemp, Hamilton, Cruz
U- Goldschmidt, Morse
B- Cain, Kubel, Carpenter
SP- Gonzalez, Medlen, Dempster, ASanchez, Peavy, Haren
RP- Grilli, Perez, Bailey, Doolittle
DL- Beckett

His team:
C- Mauer
1B- Rizzo
2B- Zobrist
3B- Gyorko
SS- Tulo
OF- Pence, Dunn, Ellsbury
U- McCann, Gardner
B- Markakis, Lowrie, Lawrie
SP- Verlander, Latos, Lester, Cobb, Cashner, Nolasco
RP- Wilhelmsen, Frieri, Gregg, Veras

You do need a catcher as Lucroy is ok and I like him but he is no elite catcher. Eddie is worth more than Mauer I think and he maybe trying to exploit your weakness. Verly may be to much but Tulo is not out of question. However I would look at other teams and try and find a more suitable catcher. Not that Mauer is bad, but he is a Twin, hope it helps

Encanacion for Mauer is way too much. To get Verlander youd have to give Encarnacion plus a lower pitcher for him. And for Tulo you could probably give Encarnacion and Andrus for Tulo and McCann maybe? Thats a tough one though you would get your catcher you need and a SS upgrade.

I kind of like that offer. Helps me at SS and C. Not sure if my overall numbers will be better or not though. Could hurt me with SB and HR, but help everywhere else. Any other opinions?

If you could swing something to improve at SS and C I would say you did a fantastic job.
