Giving my Harvey for Archer, Gardner and a pick? WHIR

Postby exm » Fri Aug 08, 2014 7:22 pm

I'm going all in to win it this year, but I am also looking into next year. Very deep 20 player H2H league.

First, my keeper for next year (keep 9):
6 Batters: Pujols, Altuve, Arenado, Longo, C Gomez, Puig
2 Pitchers: Grienke, Darvish

Last spot: Harvey (DL) [ note: also have Cobb]

I just got offered a 2015 4th rounder, Archer, T Watson (RP) and B Gardner for my Harvey and 18th rounder. This would instantly give me 3 players helping me for this year. My OF is that stacked when Cuddyer comes back, that I probably have to bench L Cain in order to start Gardner. However, for next year and beyond I would give up Harvey and would probably keep either Cobb or Archer.

Would you do this? What are your projections for either Harvey, Cobb or Archer? Thanks and WHIR

Fly your championship banner, Baby! If you are all in, go all in.

I'm fine with this. You have an entire season to worry about next year pitching.

Thanks for the help with mine.

Make the deal. Always play for the run this year if you have a decent chance. You can usually patch together each season. Do it!

I'm only making this deal if I strongly believe that Archer, Gardner & Watson will come close to guaranteeing me the championship.

Do you think that's the case? If yes, do the trade. If not, I hold onto Harvey. I think the kid is something special and while I know he is hurt, there was a point last season that he was arguably the 2nd best pitcher in the game behind Kershaw. I understand there is a risk, but if he comes back as the dominating pitcher that he is, at a point where the Mets could feasibly be competitive as a team, you will be better off with him than that package of players.

I agree with this statement...I think if you are looking to win today, go for it. Harvey is nice to have, but no one knows what to expect when he comes back and you are getting good value in return.

Thanks for your help on my post.

Hm..Harvey is young..might worry he might follow Stras's footsteps and lose a little on his fastball (just become more of a pitcher than a flame thrower). I think I'd not buy high on Gardner and keep Harvey for next year. Your team for a 20 teamer has enough to go for the win.
