Keeper League trade

Postby Effrum » Sat Jul 28, 2012 11:01 pm

I'm in a 10 team roto keeper league. I've been offered a trade. The guy in 1st is crushing us, so we're basically playing for 2nd and 3rd. I'm in 2nd place right now, within 10 hrs and rbis of the person above me in the categories (in top 3 or 4 in both). I'm in 2nd overall in steals (the 3 closest people are all within 20). I've been offered Mike Olt, Corey Hart, and Carlos Ruiz for Emilio Bonafacio, Steve Cishek, and Manny Machado. With the given information, should I do this trade? Why/why not? Thanks guys!
This is my team:
Jesus Montero
Miguel Montero
Adam Dunn
Emilio Bonafacio
Chase Headley
Jose Reyes
Jose Altuve
Brett Lawrie
Coco Crisp
Matt Kemp
Dayan Viciedo
Andrew McCutchen
Melky Cabrera
Aramis Ramirez
Michael Young
Aaron Hill
Pedro Alvarez
Ryan Roberts
David Ortiz (DL)
Trevor Plouffe (DL)

Dynasty league I assume? Tough call but I'd probably pass.

I would pass as well. What you are getting back isn't going to help you in the power department so you might as well keep the guy who will keep you in close in SB.

Agreed with the legends above me. This trade just doesn't offer you much, it just seems like a trade to make a trade. You can find a way to improve more than this.
