King Felix Offer WHIR

Postby BronXBombers51 » Wed Aug 08, 2012 2:20 pm

12 Teams - 6x6 (Normal plus OPS & Losses) - Rotisserie - 4-8 Keepers per year

C- Jesus Montero
1B- Michael Morse
2B- Ian Kinsler
3B- Miguel Cabrera
SS- Alcides Escobar
OF- Josh Hamilton
OF- Dexter Fowler
OF- Torii Hunter
Utl- Garrett Jones
Utl- Rajai Davis

B- Cody Ross
B- Jose Altuve
B- Juan Pierre
DL- Pablo Sandoval
DL- Troy Tulowitzki

SP- Felix Hernandez, Matt Cain, Yovani Gallardo, Ian Kennedy, Carlos Villanueva, Wei-Yin Chen, Jarrod Parker

RP- Alfredo Aceves, Craig Stammen, Jared Burton, Jeremy Affeldt

DL- Brandon Morrow

I was just offered Michael Bourn and a 2013 5th round pick for Felix Hernandez.

A 5th round pick means this guy would only be able to keep 4 players next year, and I would in all likelihood have the first overall pick of the draft (this year David Wright and Madison Bumgarner were the two top guys on the board by my rankings.)

Essentially this 5th round pick is like getting an extra keeper.

Hate to lose Felix but does that 5th round talent, plus Bourn, make it worth it? Keepers would likely be Cabrera, Kinsler, Sandoval, Tulowitzki, Hamilton, Cain and then 2/3 of Bourn, Morse and Gallardo. Unless another trade is made.

Current standings:
1. 111.5
2. 106.5
3. 96
4. 95.5
5. 88
6. 86.5
7. 86

Outside chance I could make the money (top 4) but the way my team has been playing lately doesn't make me very confident. Took a 4 pt. day yesterday to get me up to 6th place. Losing Felix would likely hurt this year (struggling in W/L and Ks but good in ERA/WHIP.) Bourn could potentially add a few points on in SB alone though.

Not enough value for King Felix, personally I think you should get more. and if I was you I would gladly hold off, and keep King Felix for next year. HE IS A STUD, could get even bigger if a team gets desperate and trades for him in the offseason as Seattle will soon find out they can't keep him there forever and happy in the process.

I agree. Not enough for me to pull the trigger.
