Dynasty, move Marte for power?

Postby Jase44 » Mon Mar 17, 2014 10:12 am

Hey Everyone,

16 team head-to-head dynasty (9x9) with 30 man rosters - just did an auction draft and focused on getting best value instead of team needs. I have a ton of speed and need to power up. Dollar values don't matter anymore, was just for the draft and waiver pick ups.

Here are my bats (not including prospects):

C - Lucroy
1 - Hosmer
2 - Kipnis
SS- Zobrist
3 - Caprenter
LF - Gordon
CF - Marte
RF - Rios
Util - L. Martin (L,C,R)
Util - C.Carter (1,OF)
BN - Villar, Bourn, Frazier, Guerrero

Looking at projections I will have more than enough speed but lacking a bit of power. I know I will get some flack here but I want to move Marte and I am quite content using L.Martin or Bourn as a CF. Need power in return, position isn't too much of a concern as I can do some juggling. My thoughts are:

J. Bruce
Y.Cespedes
maybe marte/bourn for trumbo/jennings

Any thoughts guys, or anyone else come to mind to worth targeting for power.

Thanks WHIR

I'm not sure one trade would really do that much for you at this point. At most you might get a 1 point swing if that from one player. You could loose just as much in speed if not more for doing the trade. Unless you plan to make a few trades for power I would stand pat.

help on mine?

I agree with Philly. You are really really lacking in the power department and aren't going to make much ground up by just getting Trumbo. If you could somehow get a few power bats it would be worth it. But, I think I would keep Marte and hope you can compete with what you have right now.

please help

Trumbo is not going to solve your power problems, plus he will hurt your avg.

If you can make the right deal for Bruce, especially in a dynasty, I would go with that. And if you can pick up a bat off FA or make multiple moves to improve your power, then go for it. Otherwise, you are not going to get much more than an incremental increase from a one-player addition.

Thanks everyone.

I may try to chip away at it, no sense in leading a category or 2 by a mile and suffering in others. I know there are teams with too much power and no speed and instead of one big swing trade I thought I would pick and choose. I should have clarified that this wasn't all I was doing but was just gauging value on Marte really.

I may try for Bruce and see where that puts me and then after a couple of weeks decide on something else.

Pool is 496 players deep so the FA list is slim to none for both power and speed.
