Chris Davis for Sale and Stanton(WHIR)

Postby Bogey316 » Mon Jun 17, 2013 10:07 pm

Hi, I'm in a 12 team H2H keeper league(any guy you keep you lose the draft pick based on what round they were picked in the previous year). The categories are R, HR, SB, RBI, OBP, SLG and QS, IP, K/9, S, ERA and WHIP. The other team is offering me Chris Sale and Giancarlo Stanton for Chris Davis. I know this might seem like a no brainer but I also have to consider I drafted Chris Davis in the 14th round(so I'd use a 13th round pick for him next year). Also, I'm in first place overall. What do you guys think? Here is my team.

C A.J. Pierzynski, Tex C
1B Freddie Freeman, Atl 1B
2B Dustin Pedroia, Bos 2B
3B Adrian Beltre, Tex 3B, DH
SS Elvis Andrus
2B/SS Neil Walker, Pit 2B
1B/3B Adam Lind, Tor 1B, DH
OF Carlos Gonzalez, Col OF
OF Carlos Gomez, Mil OF
OF Brett Gardner, NYY OF
OF Chris Davis, Bal 1B, OF, DH
OF Lorenzo Cain, KC OF
UTIL Austin Jackson, Det OF
Bench Alejandro De Aza, CWS OF
Bench Wil Myers, TB OF
Bench Jurickson Profar, Tex 2B


P Cliff Lee, Phi SP DTD
P R.A. Dickey, Tor SP DTD
P Max Scherzer, Det SP
P Addison Reed, CWS RP
P Trevor Cahill, Ari SP
P Casey Janssen, Tor RP
P Shelby Miller, StL RP, SP
P Jose Valverde, Det RP
p Hisashi Iwakuma, Sea SP, RP
p Tyler Skaggs
P Johnny Cueto

Any advice would be appreciated thanks!

So you can't keep Stanton?

Correct, I can't keep Stanton and Sale would take up a 5th round pick.

If you think it gives you a "very good" chance of winning this year, I'd do it. I'm not sure Davis for Sale is great value for next year, but if you win this season, who cares?

I do have the best record in the league so far and am as close to a lock to make the playoffs as one can get. However, as I'm sure you know, the playoffs can be a crap shoot. I know Sale and Stanton would make me better this year but I'm loving getting Davis for such a low pick next year. Tough, tough decision...

I don't think you need to do it. You can have your cake and eat it to, which is to say keep Davis and win. Obviously you only have so much to say about the latter. Your outfield is well balanced. Your pitching is very solid.

You can probably get similar value (if not the same players) later in the season anyway when other teams are definitely out of the playoffs and go into rebuilding mode.

I'd roll with Davis for now.


I think your pitching could use the boost with Skaggs, Cahill, and Dickey not really lighting things up right now. And I hate Valverde but thats probably a Tiger bias.

However who knows how Stanton will respond to his recovery and he has no help around him plus you can't keep him. I like your team as is and I think Myers will shine up here in the MLB.

Stick with what you have.

Keep Davis here.....great for this year (so is Stanton and Sale) but to get Davis next year at Rd 14 is awesome vs not getting Stanton at all and Sale in Rd 5.....keep Davis!!! (If it's not broken don't fix it....situation)....good luck!!!
