Keeper League Trade ?

Postby tarheel15 » Sun Aug 18, 2013 9:15 am

My keepers will be as follows:

Hosmer, Machado, Cabrera, Tulowitzki, Bruce, McCutchen, Heyward, Braun, Pujols, Kershaw, Harvey, Miller, Zimmerman

I have just been offered Longoria, Moore (pitcher TB) and Markakis for Cabrera. Is this something I should consider? I was thinking of requesting Stanton instead of Markakis? Should I pull the trigger on either of these trades? The league is a 10 team keeper and I can keep 13 players.
Thanks

Doesn't hurt to ask for Stanton but is a fairly solid offer for Miggy, not sure if other GM would go for it. Maybe ask for Stanton but include another OF going back.

I wouldn't make the trade. I don't like Longoria's injury history. Markakis I would not consider as one of your keepers. Moore is a pretty good keeper, but not enough that I would trade Cabrera. With Stanton, his value is limited until the players around him develop into better players, or he goes to another team.

1b Hosmer,
CI Pujols
3b M Cabrera
SS Tulowitzki
OF Bruce, McCutchen, Heyward, Braun,
UTL Machado
SP Kershaw, Harvey, Miller, Zimmerman

What other potential do you have at 2b and RP?
I would move Braun or Pujols for an elite 2b keeper if you can get by with it.
No need to deal for Longoria...

No, I'd keep Cabrera at all costs unless the deal is really overpaying by the other owner.

please help

I would hold on to Cabrera. Longoria is injury prone, Moore is good butnot worth Cabrera, Markais is meh. Stanton is in a bad lineup with no help which will hold down his RBI and Runs. And he's 23 and already fighting chronic knee problems.
