Do this trade?

Postby petachi » Tue Jun 12, 2012 8:56 am

14 team mixed 6x6 roto league w/ 7 yearly keepers

Unfortunately I'm having a rebuilding year and am considering doing this trade:




My thinking is that I need to replace Rollins and Youk next year as they just aren't what they used to be and I think Hanley has a good shot at going back to his yearly norms this year and beyond. Bourn is really impressing me w/ his improved AVG over the last few years and ofc he has great speed.

I don't consider Lynn to be the next CJ Wilson although I suppose it's a possibility and Stubbs to me is expendable even though he has fairly good hr/sb stats the rest just doesn't measure up.

That makes the trade Tex + Pedroia for Hanley + Bourn to me which still might be a bit rich so I wanted to get people's thoughts on whether I'm selling a bit low because I'm fed up with Tex's AVG woes and/or a bit concerned about Pedroia's injury history.

I am split on this. My big concern is that I always worry about SB only guys. One tweaked hamstring and all of Bourn's value is gone. I like getting Hanley although I don't see him being a top ten player again but top 25 is a good expectation.

I don't hate the trade and really outside of dealing Pedroia, I am fine moving all three of those other players.
