Keepers - Pick 8 + Trades

Postby stlcards02 » Tue Oct 01, 2013 3:42 pm

End of the Season, never to early to start planning your rosters. I've got a 20 team pts league,8 keepers. We count QS instead of wins and SB's are worth 3, otherwise it's pretty standard.

My Roster - pts in ( )
1B: Goldschmidt (859)
3B: Longoria (640)
OF: A.Jones (656)
OF: Ellsbury (693)
OF: Holliday (693)
Util: Jennings (556)
Util: Encarnacion (743)

P: Kershaw (898)
P:Darvish*(775)
P: Archer (410)

So it's pretty much between Holliday and Jennings, though I really like Archer for some reason.

Have these two trades that could be had:

Give: Darvish and Jennings
Get: Wainwright, Cano, Gomez

and

Give: Longoria, Ellsbury
Get: M. Cabrera

The first is to a team that wants to go younger and has keepers to spare, and wants his certain guys. The 2nd is just a shot in the dark, though he's lacking in keepers. Would making these trades be helpful overall int he long run? Aces are very valuable, and Wainwright is 32, Cano in his 30's, and Darvish has just insane potential. Thoughts?

For the last spot, I have a soft spot for Jennings. I think if has a healthy season next year, he could be a top 50 player with ease. Holliday is great but aging and keeps missing time. I don't think Archer is worth a spot, and Altuve/Lucroy are non-factors for me.

I would probably take a shot with Jennings since you have such a solid core anyways.

As to the trade, Ellsbury/Longoria is not too much for Cabrera, I'd be thrilled to get that deal done and keep Holliday and Jennings.

Both of those deals are great, and if you do the first one and get the three keepers for two, you could beef up your offer to the Cabrera owner and really seal that deal. If that first deal is truly on the table, jump on it.

Then you'll have:

Goldy/Cano/Gomez/A. Jones/E5/Kershaw/Waino as a rock solid 7, then you can deal:

Holliday/Ellsbury/Longoria, or some combination of 2/3 or even all three for M-Cab, giving you a ridiculous keeper squad.

Wainwright, Cano, Gomez
I would jump all over that.

1B: Goldschmidt (859)
2b: Cano (715?)
3B: Longoria (640)
OF: A.Jones (656)
OF: Ellsbury (693)
OF: Holliday (693)
Util: Gomez (690?)
Util: Encarnacion (743)
P: Kershaw (898)
P: Wainwright (775?)

I like this set of keepers absolutely if you can get that trade 1 done I would jump all over that.
