Trying to acquire Trout. WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Fri Aug 08, 2014 10:53 pm

I have been in talks about getting Trout for some time and seems like he is so attached to him (emotionally). Am I unwise to offer Miguel Cabrera, Yasiel Puig and Addison Russell for Trout?

That is the offer and he has yet to decide, but wonder if I am making the right decision in my keeper league. Team is below, let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

10 team keeper league, H2H and we only keep 6.

My Team:
W Rosario
P Goldschmidt
J Altuve
Miggy
J Baez
B Belt
A McCutchen
Y Puig
J Heyward
M Adams
E Hosmer
A Gordon
A Eaton
J Singleton
M Betts
J Mauer
A Russell

J Teheran
H Bailey
J Papelbon
M Melancon
J Hahn
D Fister
T Bauer
D Salazar
S Strasburg
G Cole

Yeah, if you're only keeping 6 in a 10 team league, make the move to get the #1 player. Year over year new guys will emerge, but you'll be left with Trout. If you kept more guys or there were more teams, I wouldn't give up Miggy.

Could you comment on mine?

I will disagree. Looking at your keepers who I would keep ahead of Puig (the cost to move from Miggy to Trout) is Goldschmidt, McCutchen, and Strasburg.

Assuming you are not playing for this year (no way I do it if you are), who is the 7th best keeper that you are replacing Puig with. If you are not going to win in the next 2 years, I would consider it, but your roster looks like it could be built for next year, so I pass.

Yup. And either way, what is the point of trading Cabrera (the number 2 hitter going into the season) for Trout at a cost of Puig as well? It is too much, plain and simple. I have mentioned it before, but with Trout you have a player that is effectively untradeable. The person who owns him will not part with him for anything less than a king's ransom (and rightfully so) and the person trying to get him if he pays that king's randsom is usually damaging his team and\or keepers even more to do it because the price is so high.

Thanks for the help on my Trout-related question. I agree with others and think you're giving too much. I'm assuming that with your team as is you'd keep Puig, so you'd be giving up Miggy (who isnt much worse than Trout) and a top-20 batter for Trout. If you look at values, you'd be giving up at least $60 and getting no more than $40-50.

You have
1b Goldy
2b Gordon or Alltuve (or Stras)
SS Baez
3b MCab
OF Puig, McCutchen as keepers is pretty sick man.
