Trade Harper for Strasburg in a keeper? WHIR

Postby twistedude » Thu Jul 25, 2013 1:06 pm

Details:
-14 Team Roto Keeper League
-Keep 5 players at the cost of their draft round value (increases each year)

I've been offered the following deal.

He gives:

-Stephen Strasburg (round 8)
-4th round pick

for my:

Bryce Harper (round 14)
-11th round pick

I don't currently have a keeper SP, so I like the idea of adding Strasburg to my group. Hate to give up on Harper, but he has been disappointing this year, and I already have Trout as an OF keeper. What do you guys think?

Here's my team (current keepers bolded with round values)

C: Joe Mauer
1B: Adrian Gonzalez
2B: Jose Altuve (16)
3B: Adrian Beltre (4)
SS: Ian Desmond (10)
IF: Adam Laroche
LF: Mike Trout (14)
CF: Jacoby Ellsbury
RF: Bryce Harper (14)
UTIL: Alfonso Soriano
BN: Melky Cabrera, Andre Ethier, Evan Gattis

SP: Darvish, Minor, Latos, Teheran, Nova, Miley, Skaggs
RP: Kimbrel, Frieri, Axford, Strop

I would make the trade. You still have Ellsbury and Trout in the outfield still, plus are getting the better draft pick in the deal.

I think you'll regret trading Harper in a keeper

But roster-wise, I think the trade could be good. I love me some Harper though and I always stick with hitters first

Help me?

The higher round draft pick you get is offset by the lower round in which Harper can be kept. I'd much rather have a plethora of stud hitters and then have to load of on the Minor, Bailey, Peavy, Gallardo type of SPs with talent but warts (either inconsistency, injury or inexperience). Usually if I get enough of that level of guys it will make up for not having the stud SP.

I would not do that deal.

No way I do that deal. Besides Harper's injury, he has been pretty solid and will only continue to get better. PASS.
