NL Only Trade help...

Postby cdrift24 » Wed Mar 07, 2018 11:14 am

Hey everyone... I would greatly appreciate input on this one. I am in an 12 Team NL Only league. Stars seem to me to be a little over inflated in this league and so do closers as we are only a 4 x 4 league. Avg, HR, RBI, SB & ERA, WHIP, W, Saves. I have 13 Players I like at their price listed below but I can only keep 10, (not including my 2 minors players, they don't count against the 10). I was offered Nolan Arenado at $47 (comps in the league, Votto $36, Goldschmidt $46) with 2 more years of control at that price. After looking at my team below, would you pull the trigger on getting Arenado as your anchor player? I also have the #1 & #4 draft picks in the minor league draft (which I'm planning on using to get Robles & hopefully Kingery) if that makes a difference in your opinion. The trade would be: I'd receive Nolan Arenado $47....I'd give up Chris Iannetta $1, JP Crawford $5, Dansby Swanson $10, Tyler Glasnow $5, & either Nick Senzel or Brendan Rodgers.

C - Austin Hedges $4
C - Chris Iannetta $1
2B - Ozzie Albies $5
3B - JP Crawford $5
SS - Dansby Swason $10
SS - Ketel Marte $10
MI - Scooter Gennett $3
OF - Manuel Margot $5
P - Luis Castillo $10
P - Archie Bradley $10
P - Josh Hader $10
P - Alex Reyes $5
P - Tyler Glasnow $5
Minors - Nick Senzel - 3B - CIN
Minors - Brendan Rodgers - SS - COL

I'd pass. It seems like you are trading the farm to pay auction price for Arenado

While Arenado's price is high, in NL only, you are not really giving up a whole lot to get him imo and you can afford the price tag assuming this is a 260 dollar league. You are not getting a better elite player at the auction I would assume, so I would do it. You can always deal him later. I would however hold back Ianetta if possible if this is a 2 C league as that is brutal in NL only and your replacement would be some backup scrub.

I would do it. You have to cut 3 of them anyways, to get to 10.
And i think JP/Swanson/Glasnow, are overrated anyways.
I would hold on to Rodgers though.
