Want to trade P Fielder for a SP&RP -WHIR

Postby exm » Tue Mar 27, 2012 12:09 pm

I have E Hosmer/H Kendrick already for 1B and I need SP/RP help so I'm thinking of offering P Fielder. Actually I like my SP, especially if P Ubaldo Jiménez (Cle - SP) and/or Francisco Liriano (Min - SP) are having a bounce back year.

The guy I want to propose a trade has R Halladay, Z Grienke, M Bumgarner as SP targets and H Street, K Farnsworth, R Betancourt as RP targets. His 1B is Adam Lind so I'm sure he wouldn't mind an upgrade. If I ask for Z Grienke and R Betancourt would that be a fair deal? I don't think he would trade Halladay. Which closer out of the 3 would be a better option you think?

Or should I keep P Fielder and have a really strong offensive team with a deep bench? The only categories I would give up on would be Saves and Holds.

Here's my team (14 player H2H 5 keepers) as you can see plenty of 1B:

C Carlos Santana (Cle - C,1B)
1B Prince Fielder (Det - 1B)
2B Howie Kendrick (LAA - 1B,2B,LF)
3B Ryan Zimmerman (Was - 3B)
SS Jhonny Peralta (Det - SS)
LF Jose Tabata (Pit - LF,RF)
CF Jayson Werth (Was - CF,RF)
RF Jose Bautista (TOR - 1B, RF)
UTIL Eric Hosmer (KC - 1B)
B Kendrys Morales (LAA - 1B,RF)
B Edwin Encarnación (Tor - 1B,3B)
B Freddy Sánchez (SF - 2B)
B Brennan Boesch (Det - LF,RF)
B Adam Dunn (CWS - 1B)
B Colby Rasmus (Tor - CF)
B Yunel Escobar (Tor - SS)
B Alejandro De Aza (CWS - CF,RF)


SP Mat Latos (Cin - SP)
SP Tommy Hanson (Atl - SP)
SP Cliff Lee (Phi - SP)
RP Joel Hanrahan (Pit - RP)
RP Matt Lindstrom (Bal - RP)
RP Edward Mujica (Mia - RP)
P Ubaldo Jiménez (Cle - SP)
P Francisco Liriano (Min - SP)
P Jonathon Niese (NYM - SP)
P Roy Oswalt (Phi - SP) NA
Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF, Util, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL, DL
Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Doubles (2B), Triples (3B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Strikeouts (K), Batting Average (AVG), On-base Percentage (OBP)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Losses (L), Complete Games (CG), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS)

Thanks and WHIR

I think you have some good thoughts. I would offer Prince for Greinke and Betancourt and see what he says. You should be able to get more for Prince like a Halladay but you are probably right he won't trade Roy boy.

please help
