Darvish trade WHIR

Postby Trooper » Wed Jul 24, 2013 1:46 am

So I was proposed this deal: My Yu Darvish and Kenley Jansen for his Nelson Cruz and Daniel Nava. I rejected it, but he claims that I'm getting strong value for Darvish. I don't agree but thought I'd post to see what people think and for second opinions/explanations of why he's wrong so I can prove my point. Also looking for ideas for counters--I'm thinking of one of Votto/Bautista/Beltre straight up for Yu although he has been resistant to that.

It's a 12 team yahoo league, H2H 5x5 categories with QS instead of W, OBP instead of AVG, and SV+H (yes, one category) instead of SV.

I've been inconsistent offensively, especially with the recent loss of Braun, but strong in pitching, so I'm trying to deal off pitching to get bats. I am in 5th, 13 games out (but only 5.5 games out of second, 4 teams make the playoffs) and he is in first (and is very interested in Darvish). He also got Cruz from the 10th place team for Ernesto Frieri so I pointed out that it is kind of amusing he wants to flip him for Darvish.

His hitting (http://i.imgur.com/J5mSo15.png) and his pitching (http://i.imgur.com/DbSnjiN.png)

tl:dr tell me why this is a bad deal so I can show this to him.
Any help you guys can provide is very much appreciated and I am more than happy to help in return!

I would keep Darvish/Jansen, you can get a lot more. Not to mention Cruz may be serving some suspension time.

No way, Darvish demands a much higher return. Cruz is playing a bit over his head.

I would keep darvish, Cruz is about to get a suspension, so you are getting more out of darvish.

The guy is an idiot if thinks that's good value for Darvish. It's not even close. If he thinks that's fair, I doubt you'll get a trade done with him because he overvalues his players.

I agree with the others. Your friend is trying to scam you or is clueless.

Darvish alone is too valuable to give up for Cruz and Nava, and Braun being suspended suggests that more suspensions are on the horizon.

Help with mine? I have to decide within 2 hours.
