Postby bgagnon1123 » Thu Jul 25, 2013 12:00 pm

16 Team Keeper League (2 per team)
Offensive Categories: H, SB, AVG, HR, RBI, OPS, TB, R

I give Paul Goldschmidt (my team is 8-7 and seeded 6th currently, will likely make the playoffs)

I get Evan Longoria, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Joe Mauer (from a team that is 4-11 and in last place)

Pre Trade Roster
C- Posey
1B- Goldschmidt
2B- Altuve
3B- Freese

This becomes tougher because you can only keep two per team. If you think you can win this year than I would definitely make this trade.

Straight value wise it's a great trade for you. Keeper-wise it hurts you a bit. Also part of your value would be in Mauer who would be just a decent (maybe lower-tier starter) 1B since you have Posey. I'd be tempted to try to find another manager who needs a C that would trade a better 1B for Mauer before pulling the trigger. Get you more value that way. That or see if he'd give you a really good pitcher or another good OF instead of Mauer and then you could try to trade for a 1B.

I would hold tight on this. Goldy is too much of a hit to your team if you lost him and not really getting a decent 1b back or whatever. If you were getting Longoria, a legit OF not a speed only type, maybe an OF like Gomez instead of Jacoby I would.
