Tanaka for who???.....WHIR

16 team H2H Points / 4 keeper / 12 start limit- Scoring Settings

So this is my team after the draft last night. I did allright but there are for sure areas in which I could improve. Against everyones opinion about not taking Tanaka with my first pick I did anyway. I took the chance that I might be able to get Myers with my next pick which I almost did but not quite. However the main reason I took Tanaka first was a team in my division is desperate to get him and I figured I could get a good price in trading him. Now this other team is not stupid so I can not pull one over on him, which is a good thing, but I want to try get the most bang for my buck and fix a gap in my roster if possible. I feel I am lacking at 2b/3b most, at least that is my opinion. He has allready sent an offer which I will not take as I am not sure I can afford to give and OF and not get one, but this is what he sent.

I give - Desmond Jennings and Tanaka
I get - Gio Gonzalez and Jon Lester


I definatley like Gio in the offer but what would you want from him and what would be a fair offer while helping my team at the same time? This is his Roster...

HIS ROSTER
McCann, Logan Morrison, Cano, Ryan Zimmerman, Jonathan Villar, Kinsler, Reynolds, LeMahieu, Marte, Revere, Avisail Garcia, Joyce, Justin Ruggiano, John Jaso, Josmil Pinto, Chris Heisey, Stubbs,

Cody Allen, Pedro Strop, Marco Estrada, Porcello, Hellickson, Robbie Ross

MY ROSTER
C – Buster Posey (keeper)
1B-Chris Davis (keeper)
2B-Jurickson Profar
3B-Will Middlebrooks
SS-Ian Desmond (keeper)
2B/SS-Anthony Rendon
1B/3B-Trevor Plouffe
IF-Mike Aviles
OF-Matt Holliday
OF-Desmond Jennings
OF-Austin Jackson
OF-Jon Jay
OF-Jonny Gomes
UTIL- Dioner Navarro
UTIL-Welington Castillo
UTIL-Skip Schumaker
B-Donnie Murphy

Should have taken Myers :-b. Your OF could have really used him. Now to the point of Tanaka and not being able to get over on him. Why would you put yourself in this position? If you know you can't get over on the guy why even take Tanaka? My only reasoning for taking him would be to get over on the guy who really wanted him. Not loving that deal at all. Not a fan of Gio but he does get a bit of a bump having no WHIP. Looking over his roster I don't see anyone I would really target.

What I meant by put one over on him was I can not rape him in a trade. I can however get what I wanted. I really do not mind having Tanaka as Myers did not stand that far out for me. Either way I am happy with what I did but I was just wondering if there was a good trade for me that someone could see here. Thanks though

Yes I know. My point was your only reasoning for taking him should be to rape the shit out of the other guy. Not do him a solid and give him the guy he wanted.

Well I am not going to do him a solid lol, I will only trade him If I get what I want, and to be honest I am not un happy with taking him, Myers, ehhh, it is what it is, but what if I could get Cano, Gio, and Hell Boy, foir say Tanaka and whomever else from me? If I keep him I keep him, but might as well have fun trying to put a trade together. I am going to try and drive him up by saying I am trying to get Harper for him which I actually am going to do. I would trade Tanaka for Harper straight up just not sure that team would do that.

Thanks for your help. I just texted Fernandez's owner to try to expedite.

I do not see your roster being comparable with his; however, the trade that you proposed would be the best thing that you could offer. I think you need greater depth at SP, and Lester and Gio would provide that. If you want Meyers and want to rape him, try a three-player deal and see if he is stupid enough to accept [e.g., Lester / Gio / Myers for Jennings / Tanaka / Gonzalez (do not see many field players that would work)].

You do run the risk of pissing him off; however, if he declines, go with the deal that you propose...if just might work.

Oh I do not mind pissing him off, lol, we have been in same division for 5 years now. However I can not get Myers from him as he does not have him. I just mentioned Myers as when I made my first pick it was Myers or Tanaka. I am just Thinking Cano as I could use the 2b, and as you said the SP depth I get from Lester and Gio

So I am thinking

I give Tanaka, Rendon, and Parker or Beckett to piss him off, lol

for

Cano, Lester and Gio

thanks for the help...

just curious what do the top OFs on the WW look like? I realize that in a 16 team league with 5 of spots you can have all regulars but you have gomes and jay who both will see limited time...depending on bourjos' success jay could be a strict bench spot.

Therefore, I see where you are going here but i dont think you can really afford to lose jennings.
