Update...the deal is now Harper for Encarnacion/Felix/Street as I needed a closer. So is giving up Harper worth it here?
6x6 (OPS/Holds are extra categories)
12 team mixed keeper league
Keep 4-7 players each year for a max of 3x
I am last years defending champion and am going for my 2nd year in a row....currently leading the pack by 19 games. I had ARod as my 3rd baseman and now that his handgina is broken...i sent out an email looking at trades. I was offered Felix and Encarnacion for Bryce Harper. Keeper-wise, I would be able to keep Edwin or Bryce 3x after this year. Felix's keeper status is up after this season so he goes back into the draft. Here is my current roster.
My thoughts on this are a bit complex. I would value Edwin MUCH more if he retained 3B status next season but so far he only has one start and i think Yahoo requires 3 or 5. Not sure if he'll get them. That being said, over the next 4 years, i'm not sure Edwin won't put up better numbers than Bryce especially in an OPS league. He seems to be coming into his own and while I'd be waiting for Bryce to develop power...i could cash in on Edwin's. Plus I would have Edwin to plug into 3B this year as opposed to my stopgap Chipper. And of course for this year I'd also be able to plug King Felix in. Soooooooo....what do you all think?
To me it comes down to weighing whether or not it is worth giving up 4 years of Bryce Harper in exchange for 4 years of Encarnacion AND not having to plug in Chipper or someone similar the rest of the year and for my playoffs...plus getting the added bonus of Felix for the rest of this year and the playoffs (hoping he gets traded).
PLEASE HELP AND POST YOUR LINK AND I"LL TRY TO HELP YOU! Roster is below...with the guys I'll be keeping next year. My goal is to keep only 4 players...so i can draft in the 1st supplemental round.
