Keeper trade - Myers for Matt Adams/Sonny Gray

Postby brooklynborn82 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 7:29 pm

In a 12 team, 5x5 roto Ops keeper League. Currently, I'm slotted in as the 12th pick.

Was wondering if I should trade Matt Adams in the 18th rd/Sonny Gray in 19th for Wil Myers in the 20th?

My keeper list, with rounds in parenthesis and the ability to only keep 7, is as follows:

1. Paul Goldscmidt (7)
2. Matt Carpenter (14)
3. Anthony Rendon (22)
4. Trevor Rosenthal (12)
5. Zack Wheeler (17)
6. Sonny Gray (19)
7. Matt Adams (18)
8. Nick Castellanos (27)
9. Brad Miller (27)
10. Yordano Ventura (27)


I don't know if I am giving up too much to get Myers, but the idea of having an impact bat like Myers for years entices me. Gray is a stud, but pitching talent is easy to find. Was hoping to make a 2 for 1 and keep either Castellanos or Miller.

Need help fellas, please give me your insights. Would you make this move? Or would you stand pat and keep both Adams and Gray?

WHIR for some thoughts on this trade. Really looking for some kind of insight to break the deadlock between me and my partner. Any help would be reciprocated.

I would jump all over that and keep Miller.

Thanks for the reply Mad Dog, really appreciate it.

What aspect of this trade makes you want to jump all over it?

If you'd like to solicit my opinion on anything you have going on, I'd most certainly be willing to help.

Sonny Grey might be good but Myers is a top 10 OF in the foreseeable future.
