Value for Greinke WHIR

Postby PhightinFils » Mon Jul 30, 2012 2:40 pm

Someone in my league just started kicking the tires on a Greinke trade, which I'm hesitant to do because he has an awesome schedule for the rest of the season. His first offer was focused on Alexei Ramirez, which I would never do, so I'm not sure what to counter with.

12 team keeper, 5x5 Roto, with OBP instead of AVG
My team:
C: Perez
1B: Youkilis
2B: Uggla
SS: Castro
3B: Bonifacio
CI: Butler
MI: Ackley
OF: McCutcheon/J. Upton/Swisher/Ramus/Pence
SP: Hamels, Greinke, Vogelsong, Latos, Gio, Minor
RP: Clippard, Frieri, Motte
DL: Lilly, Cashner

His Team
C: Salty
1B: Pujols
2B: Altuve
SS: Reyes
3B: Aramis Ramirez
CI: A Gonzalez
MI: Alexei Ramirez
OF: Holliday/Cruz/Prado/Trumbo/Craig
SP: Kershaw, Hanson, Buehrle, Niese, Miley, Nova, Bailey, McCallister, Billingsly
DL: Werth

I've got 1st in all the pitching cats except saves, where I am in 3rd. I am top 3 in HR, RBI, and OBP, and I'm hoping my recent trade for Bonifacio gets me closer to the top in SB. Unfortunately, im 10th in R's, so I figured if I made this trade I needed to focus on R's. I was thinking about asking for Prado or Trumbo, but I wanted to check here to see if that was a good value, I'm not very doing pitcher for hitter trades. Also, Prado/Trumbo are both $1 keepers, so that could be useful for next year.

For Greinke, I'd target someone of the likes of Matt Holliday. I value Trumbo higher than Holliday, so you could start there and come down, especially given his good keeper value, but Holliday is in the ballpark of comparable value to Greinke in my opinion. You get 4 categories out of Holliday including runs, especially with a solid Cardinals offensive lineup.

Can you help me? viewtopic.php?t=451088
