Greinke and Rizzo for Bryce in a keeper? WHIR!

Postby onitapgr » Tue Jun 26, 2012 11:56 pm

12 team 5x5 Standard Roto League, 1500 IP limit
Our roster positions are C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, IF, 4 OF, Util, 3 SP, 3 RP, 3 P, 7 Bench, 2 DL
keep any 10 players indefinitely...these 10 keepers are your picks for rounds 1 through 10

Looking ahead to the next few years, would trading Anthony Rizzo and Greinke away for Bryce Harper improve my keepers overall?

My keepers would probably look like this if I made the trade...

C Carlos Santana (Cle - C,1B)
1B Adrian Gonzalez (Bos - 1B)
2B Jose Altuve (Houston - 2B)
SS Troy Tulowitzki (Col - SS)
OF Jose Bautista (Tor - OF)
OF Desmond Jennings (TB - OF)
OF Bryce Harper (Was - OF)
OF Mike Trout (LAA - OF)
SP Stephen Strasburg (Was - SP)
SP Justin Verlander (Det - SP)

Here's my team/keeper possibilities
C Carlos Santana (Cle - C,1B)
1B Adrian Gonzalez (Bos - 1B)
2B Chris Nelson (Col - 2B)
3B Jose Bautista (Tor - 3B,OF)
SS Andrelton Simmons (Atl - SS)
IF Ike Davis (NYM - 1B)
OF Desmond Jennings (TB - OF)
OF Alex Gordon (KC - OF)
OF Alfonso Soriano (CHC - OF)
OF Mike Trout (LAA - OF)
Util Brandon Belt (SF - 1B, OF)
BN Ben Revere (Min - OF)
BN Rajai Davis (Tor - OF)
BN Jose Altuve (Houston - 2B)
BN Anthony Rizzo (CHC - 1B)
BN Ryan Kalish (Bos - OF)
DL Troy Tulowitzki (Col - SS) DL
DL Brett Gardner (NYY - OF) DL

SP Stephen Strasburg (Was - SP)
SP Edwin Jackson (Was - SP)
SP Justin Verlander (Det - SP)
P Zack Greinke (Mil - SP)
P R.A. Dickey (NYM - RP)
P Max Scherzer (Pit - SP)
RP Brandon League (Sea - RP)
RP Casey Janssen (Tor - RP)
RP Joe Nathan (Tex - RP)
BN Bobby Parnell (NYM - RP)

If you can make that trade....... Do it! You weren't going to keep Greinke anyway, and I would rather have Harper over Rizzo in a keeper.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=449618

I like the trade for you, Harper is the best player in the deal and you are getting him. Thanks for the help on mine ;-D

Yeah if you can do that, then get it done. Bryce will be a much better all around player then Rizzo and since you wouldn't be keeping Greinke it's a no brainer. Go get Bryce.

Definitely make the trade.

I know your keepers won't have to be decided for a while, but I'd probably end up keeping Gordon over Altuve.
