Two Trades WHIR

Postby Mateo de Lorenzo » Tue Jun 21, 2011 11:53 pm

Ok, I am in a 6x6 h2h league (OPS/Holds) that is a Dynasty. I am trying to get Prince Fielder. The Prince Fielder told me he wanted another good 1B in return and somebody for holds. Holds are a dime a dozen it seems, so I want to see what I can do.

Please bear with me.

Here is my team:

C John Buck
1B Kevin Youkilis
2B Brandon Phillips
3B Justin Turner
SS Alexei Ramirez
IF Jamey Carroll
LF Brett Gardner
CF Matt Kemp
RF Andre Ethier
OF Shin Soo-Choo
U BJ Upton
U Carlos Lee
BN Chris Young, Matt Laporta
DL David Wright, Ike Davis

SP: Madison Bumgarner, Clayton Kershaw, Roy Oswalt, Wandy Rodriguez, John Danks, Michael Pineida, Carl Pavano, Alex Cobb, James McDonald, Livan Hernandez, Joe Saunders, Alex Cobb
RP: Drew Storen, Joel Hanrahan, Tony Sipp, Jose Veras, Cameron Lee.
DL: Joe Nathan

Ok, so like I said, I am trying to get Prince Fielder and have two options I can go with.

Option A:

Youkilis and Veras or Lee for Fielder

Option B:

Madisoun Bumgarner, Ike Davis and Michael Pineida for A-Rod and Scott Downs (to a third team)


A-Rod/Scott Downs for Fielder

My gut says Option A is best for me. So the question becomes, is trading Youk for Fielder a good move?
Please help me with analyzing my team? viewtopic.php?f=29&t=433592

Yes. Option A. You still have David Wright.

While I like option A, I am not sure Youk is going to be enough. When he said he would want another good 1B in return, I don't think Youk will be considered another good 1B. If you can get that deal done, then I would consider it a steal for you. As for the other deal, I don't think you can deal Bumgarner. Your SP isn't very strong and losing your #2 guy will almost cripple it.
