Lee for Bumgarner in a keeper?

Postby Hogger1 » Fri Mar 14, 2014 10:14 am

I have the opportunity to trade Cliff Lee for Madison Bumgarner in a keeper league. I also have to downgrade a pick in the second half of this years draft if I do it. The other consideration is that I traded away most of my early picks for this year trying (not quite succeeding) to defend my title last year and figure I have no real shot this year, so it'll be more about gearing up for next season...probably.

Eh. If it means a lesser draft pick as well I probably do not do it. Plus, why deal now as you can always trade in July to someone if you are out of it and Lee should have plenty of value.

I would do it. I love Lee, but he can't keep up this level much longer.
Pay the draft pick price, to get a top 10 SP for a long time.

Thanks guys. I also think there's a chance Lee regresses this year due to age and Bumgarner ends up better this season. Not sure how likely, but possible for sure. Pulled the trigger.

I have one pick in the first four rounds (7 keepers) so don't think I have much chance this year anyway.
