Trade Teixera in Keeper League?

Postby Brewins33 » Wed Jun 01, 2011 2:03 pm

In 5 x 5 head to head league with only 20 waiver moves throughout season (used 5 already). Also its a keeper league (allowed to keep 5 players, but it is dependent on original draft position, in other words, I cannot necessarily keep my best 5).

Currently in 1st place, and not only want to win this year, but also want to be set for the future. I have a gret situation where I picked up Hosmer off waivers and if I wanted to, could move Teixera for a keeper OF. Then Hosmer would be one of my 5 keepers.

Do I hold steady as is, or gamble in moving Teixera for an OF, hope Hosmer becomes a stud of the future, and go into next year with the following 5 keepers....
1B - Hosmer
2B - Utley
SS - Tulo
3B - Longoria

My Team..

C - VMart
1 - Teixera (Keeper)
2 - Utley (Keeper)
3 - Longoria (Keeper)
SS - Tulo (Keeper)
OF - Ellsbury
OF - Rasmus
OF - Logan Morrison
Util - Hosmer
BN - Bay
DL - Utley (Keeper)

SP - CC (Keeper)
SP - Bucholz
SP - Marcum
SP - Daniel Hudson
SP - James Shields
RP - Axford
RP - Kimbel
P - Venters (we count holds in this league)
P - Madson (we count holds in this league)
BN (SP) - Colby Lewis
BN (SP) - Edwin Jackson

About to dump Bay in order to get Sean Rodriguez who has numerous position eligibility to me my bench player or I can grab Gardner, Melkey, Michael Morse, or Coco Crisp.

Well, it all depends on what potential keeper outfielder you'd be receiving in return. If it doesn't hurt your team too much this season and still allows you to compete in the future, I'd say go for it.
