Need Trade Help Fast-WHIR

Postby tnbrave » Mon Jul 22, 2013 8:45 pm

Been offered Bautista and Matt Cain for my Justin Upton and Patrick Corbin. I'm in a 10-team H2H Points League. Other SPs include Bumgarner, Latos, Hamels, Burnett, and Garza (with Beachy on the DL). Other OFs include Trout, CarGo, Heyward, and Choo. Currently 3 games out of the last playoff spot. Should I make the deal or sit tight with Corbin and J. Upton? Thanks!

is it a keeper league? this year cain just hasn't been good, he has good K numbers but his era is a 5. Bautista right now is putting better numbers than Jup, and Jup is looking like he might hit 200 strikeouts for the 1st time in his career. I think it just depends how well you think Corbin and Cain's second halfs will be, corbin was outstanding in the first half. I think bautista right now is >jup and corbin>cain

I would not make that trade. I would try and trade one of your many outfielders though for a position of need.

Yes, it's a keeper league. Can keep 5 each year.

Cain has been pretty bad this year, and Upton hasn't been the April version of Upton for awhile. I'd probably stay put for now. While Bautista has power, do you need that? Just not sure it really makes you that much better.

I won't and don't think it can be said this is a bad deal, but preference is greatly toward upton and Corbin. Upton has potential as a keeper given his age, and future hopes. Plus depending on your roster. Corbin I Definetly view as one of your 5 keepers. Just generalizing without knowing your roster of course

Stay put. Cain may improve but could also continue to be a disaster.

Help with mine?

Thanks. Decided to stay put. Got a new offer. Shields and De Aza for Corbin and Headley.

I don't like the new deal. But I do like the idea of trying to trade "high" on Upton in a keeper. I think it's time we stop waiting for JUpton to break out and realize that he is just another Hunter Pence. Try to look for another trade including Upton.
