Makes these trades?

Postby stlcards02 » Sun Jun 24, 2012 10:08 pm

So there are a few teams that haven't sort of put themselves ahead of the pack by a large margin. Been offered one trade and in talks for another. My team is 2nd in my division but I'm unsure just how much I can compete at this point. Are both these trades worth doing? It's a 20 team, 8 keeper pts league. QS instead of wins, 3 SB -0.5 for a K and the rest is pretty standard.

Give: Zobrist(285), Swisher(260), Edwin Jackson(290)
Get: A.Jones(340), Gee(260), Reynolds(160)

Give: Shields(270)
Get: Lester(250), Wil Myers

I wouldn't do the first one. Jones is slowing down, while Zobrist is getting hot.

I would do the Shields/Lester one, though.

Trade 1: I assume you are getting Adam Jones and not Andruw Jones in this trade. I would jump on this in a heartbeat. You are getting a first round pick for three scrubs. Adam Jones is in his prime. Trust me I have owned Zobrist all year. Two weeks does not make up for the pain he has inflicted and will inflict on lineups.

Trade 2: No way. Shields > Lester and not sure if you even keep W Meyers. Shields is young Lester is old. Don't see this being good for you this year or in the future.
