BIG Trade, WHIR!

Postby SonOfAPitch » Sat Aug 17, 2013 2:06 am

I play in a twelve team h2h keeper league, where we keep ten players from year to year. Scoring format is: R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG for batters and ERA, WHIP, K, W, SV, HLD for pitchers. Here is my roster:

C - Napoli
1B - Votto
2B - Kipnis
3B - Panda
SS - Reyes
LF - Trout
CF - Ellsbury
RF - Kipnis
UTIL - Marte
BN - Davis
BN - Boegarts

SP - Hamels
SP - Peavy
SP - Wilson
RP - Rivera
RP - Mujica
RP - Uehara
P - Janssen
P - Rosenthal
P - Doolittle
BN - Beachy
BN - Ryu
BN - Cingrani
BN - Liriano
BN - Wood

Clearly I'm heavy on speed, and need power. As for pitching, I'm so-so. Anyways, I'm trading Starling Marte and Tony Cingrani for Chris Davis. I think this is a clear win that helps my team. Personally, I was shocked when she agreed to the trade, given Chris Davis' performance this year. Anyone disagree with me?

i'm still skeptical on Davis long-term, and even to keep his pace for the balance of this season, but I still think this is a good deal for you. It helps to round out your roster, and you still have enough keeper options that I'd even suggest trying to deal Davis for other help in the off-seaon. Overall, I like it right now.

I think that, based on my roster, it helps. I'm skeptical about Cingrani long term anyways, and have too much speed if I'm keeping Trout, Ellsbury, Reyes, and Kipnis for Marte to really be a difference maker.

I'm not banking on Davis keeping up his performance or repeating next year. I think that 35-40 hr is reasonable for next year though, which easily makes him by biggest power threat.

Any other threats?

Do it now! Davis will be a 30+ HR guy for years and that in itself helps. Cingrani and Marte are pretty good guys, but nothing special. Davis is.

In my opinion Cingrani has alot of long term value, and has been great so far this season. Marte has been good this season as well. However, this is a good trade for you for at least this season.
