URGENT: Dynasty trade involving Sale and Buxton..

Postby aufan03 » Mon Aug 05, 2013 6:42 pm

10 team dynasty roto league. my team is currently in 7th place. I got offered Ryu, Skaggs, Buxton, Pedro Alvarez for Derek Holland and Chris Sale. Do I accept? I dont have long to decide.

Buxton is a future superstar.
Alvarez is a big power CI.
Don't like you giving up Sale here...Ryu is a solid, slight downgrade (strong #2 SP). Holland is well just a mid rotation starter IMO...despite performance. If you have another ace (say Sale is your #2) I would do this. If Sale is your only young ace I would pass.

I drafted Hamels to be my ace, but obviously he isnt having a great year. My other notable pitchers include Masterson and Wheeler. Would you do this deal? I am hesitant to give up Sale, but getting Buxton back would be nice.

I would do this. It's the right price for a starter, and you're getting back a lot of useful talent to mitigate the risk of taking on a prospect (even if that prospect is #1 overall, there's risk).

I like this quite a bit for you.

First off, you need to tell the other owner to hold his horses. A deal with this many moving pieces deserves more than a day of consideration, at least for me.

But, after looking at this, I would pass. Sale is a great piece but for me, Alvarez and Buxton alone are worth a Sale. Not to mention that you'd be throwing in Ryu and Skaggs. Holland is a nice pitcher but he doesn't do much for me.

Good luck!

I'm actually on the end of the deal that would be giving up Sale and Holland.. are you saying you would deal them for the other guys 4 players?
