Dynasty League help-Adrian Gonzalez...

Postby Malton » Tue Jul 12, 2005 2:43 pm

I'm in a dynasty league (head to head by position), looking to build my team for the future as I have no chance of making the playoffs.
I've been offered Adrian Gonzalez, Koskie, and Cuddyear for Vinnie Castilla, and Luis Castillo. Should I make the deal. Should I ask for Teahan instead of Koskie or Cuddyear. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Here's my lineup:
C Mike Lieberthal Phi
C Gregg Zaun Tor
1B Ben Broussard Cle
1B Scott Hatteberg Oak
2B Luis Castillo Fla
2B Omar Infante Det
2B Neifi Perez ChC
3B David Bell Phi
3B Vinny Castilla Was
SS Edgar Renteria Bos
SS Alex Gonzalez Fla
SS Craig Counsell Ari
OF Brian Giles SD
OF Jim Edmonds StL
OF Carl Everett CWS
OF Rondell White Det
OF Mark Kotsay Oak

This must be a really deep league.

But I would not do it. In a deep league, Castillo is not a bad 2B. You would be giving him up and getting no one who can really be called a good starter in return (I am not a huge Castillo fan, but he is little bit nicer to have then Cuddyer or Koskie). It would be the classic mistake of trading a guy who is a grade B fantasy player for 3 guys that Cs or Ds.

As for Gonzalez, he is not worth much. He is a Mark Grace/Wally Joyner guy, i.e. mediocre power. There is no spot for him Texas. Who knows when he may get traded an when an opportunity will emerge? Bascially, he is a guy with a very modest fantasy ceiling who will need to move to another club to even get to prove that he is a big league player. Not worth much in my opinion.

He just changes the offer to Hermida, Gonzalez, Cuddyear and Teahan for Castillo and Castilla. Is it worth it now. It is a deep league, 25 man rosters-12 team league.
