Final Keeper RF Dilema WHIR?

Postby Philly_05 » Fri Mar 14, 2014 10:27 pm

I have been banging my head against the wall trying to find a upgrade in RF prior to keepers being named and the draft taking place. It just doesn't seem to be in the cards. One guy who finished in 14th place last year has Pence and Hamilton but he's really overvaluing them. Neither will be around if he's ever good with the roster he has. But he actually thought I should move Bogaerts, Buxton or Taillon to him. I have offered him Soler and my 1st rounder. But he complains that he wouldn't be able to get a good player at 11. I have been asked about Nick Markakis and Will Venable but I don't really want them for the talent I think they are. Or the asking price.

That leads me to my keeper dilemma. I have Lorenzo Cain who I don't view as a keeper at this stage. I would prefer to keep Soler or Bauer over him. But I just can't go into the draft with no RF. Drafting from the 11th spot no way I can fill my team with a quality RF. If even a quality RF were to be dropped. Should I stick with keeping Soler and hope a trade comes through even if it's after the draft. Or keep Cain and drop Soler and Bauer?

I think your thinking is right and would keep Soler and try to make a trade after the draft. I don't really like Cain too much especially if you have to drop Bauer and Soler to keep him.

Thanks for your help with mine.

The guy will do Soler and Smyly for Hamilton. Should I just bite the bullet or is my frustration getting the best of me? :-?

Hmmm, I don't know. That's not bad for Hamilton. I might take that. Soler is probably a year away and Smyly is just meh. I think I might do it. But then again it's a huge risk.

I would rather have Soler then Taillon.
Didn't he offer Hamilton for Taillon?

Bauer is a bleh prospect to him, dump him and Cain on him for his Josh Hamilton, I like that the best honestly.

No we haven't talked about Taillon for Hamilton. We have mostly been focused on Pence. I sent him one last offer on Pence. Not sure if he will like it or not but Smyly, Soler and Bauer for Pence and Brothers. With no holds I figured I could get Brothers as a throw in. Bauer is a bleh prospect to everyone lol. Not much love around the league for Soler either it seems.
