Trade before keepers

Postby kslates » Sun Feb 23, 2014 10:19 am

I give Longoria, Freeman

I get Salazar (rd 20 x 3 yrs), Desmond Jennings (rd 22 x 3 yrs), Donaldson, (rd 19 x 3 yrs), Wily Peralta (rd 17 x 5 yrs)

I would then draft Prince, Beltre or Braun in the second round instead of keeping Longoria there.

Losing freeman is the one I'm questioning. I'm trading longoria for sure to open up my second round pick Thoughts?

10 team, H2H , 5x5 Mixed League
OBP, R, HR, RBI, SB, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP
Keep 10 MLB and 8 prospects. Lose round that player was drafted in previous draft.
Round drafted x years remaining is in parenthesis. N/A=contract expires after this year

Rd 1-Matt Kemp x 2 years, Prince Fielder x 1 years, Robinson Canó x 3 years
Rd 2-Evan Longoria x 3 years, Justin Upton x 3 years
Rd 3-Ian Kinsler x 1 years
Rd 4-Dustin Pedroia x 3 years
Rd 5-Curtis Granderson x 1 years, Jon Lester x 3 years
Rd 6-Joe Mauer x 3 years, Mike Minor x 3 years
Rd 11-Adam Jones x 1 years
Rd 15-Dom Brown x 3 years
Rd 16-Freddie Freeman x 2 years
Rd 18-Jeff Samardzija x 2 years

A bad trade is just bad, quality over quantity.

Not a trade I would do. I don't mind dealing Longoria as you would then get another top bat in the draft. But I don't think you are getting enough value for your two very good bats. Freeman is a fantastic value at 16. I would look at just dealing Longoria.
