Adrian Gonzalez Trade WHIR

Postby jgcubbieblue » Sat Mar 10, 2012 11:40 pm

Keeper league trade here:

12-team mixed league 5x5

We keep 4 players and lose the draft pick that we selected them in from the last year drafted as long as we want.

My 4 are Miguel Cabrera (1), Matt Kemp (2), Adrian Gonzalez (3), and Matt Moore (24).

I traded away a lot of early picks last year to make a run at the title, and I'm left with only 2 picks before the 10th round.

Here's the offer:

I get the other guy's 1st (2nd overall), 5th (33), 7th (51), and 13th (125) for Adrian Gonzalez.

The guys that would be available in the first round would be Cliff Lee, Lincecum, Felix, or McCutchen.

Should I do the deal or hold Gonzalez until after the draft?

If I am following your trade right, who would you keep instead of Adrian Gonzalez as your 4th keeper? I think I would doo it if its even someone half way decent. Those are alot of nice picks you would be acquiring.

Unless you can replace Gonzalez with a 4th keeper, I would stay put for this deal.

Gonzalez has the best long term value as a 3rd round pick (compared to Miggy and Kemp).

The picks might help you a bit this year, but will hurt you in the long run unless you draft some very valuable players in his place.

If you could land 4 studs with those draft picks, then yeah, make the trade. If you can replace Gonzalez, that would be a big plus.

I couldn't replace Gonzalez with another keeper as we've already declared. It would be a straight up player for picks trade and I'm wondering if I wait if I could get better value after the draft.

In that case I am probably holding onto Gonzalez and seeing how things shake out after the draft.

I'd say keep Agon...with that foursome - nice on Moore too - you should contend regardless

I'd keep AGon since you don't have another keeper option.

Please help mine
