So, I am in the middle of my draft and my biggest glaring hole is 2B and there are really no decent 2B available, so I am in talks with a few teams on potential trades.
16 team dynasty league. 9x9 stats. h2h league.
Here is my team, so far:
Round 1: Josh Hamilton (4 years/11m) LF/CF
Round 2: Stephen Strasburg (5yrs/9m) SP
Round 3: Billy Butler (4yrs/6m) 1B
Round 4: Brett Lawrie (5yrs/10m) 3B
Round 5: Cliff Lee (4yrs/14m) SP
Round 6: Zack Greinke (4yrs/10m) SP
Round 7: David Freese (4yrs/5m) 3B
Round 8: Tim Lincecum (4yrs/10m) SP
Round 9: Nelson Cruz (4yrs/10m) LF
Round 10: Jake Peavy (2yrs/2m) SP
Round 11: Starling Marte (5yrs/600k) CF
Round 12: Zack Cozart (5yrs/600k) SS
Round 13: Nick Swisher (3yrs/5m) 1B/RF
Round 14: Kyle Lohse (1yrs/1.4m) SP
Round 15: JJ Putz (2yrs/6m)
Round 16: Ryan Doumit (1yr/800k) C
Round 17: Alexi Ogando (2yrs/3m) )SP
Round 18: Jayson Werth (3yrs/6m) RF/CF
Round 19: Rafael Betancourt (1yr/5m) RP
Round 20: Jose Valverde RP (2yrs/6m) RP
Round 21: Justin Morneau (3yrs/3m) 1B
So, here are the trade offers I have received.
A. I trade Ogando, 2nd round pick in 2014, and a PTBNL for Utley.
B. I trade Ogando and Butler for Utley (1yr/8m with a 10m option), Garza (4yrs/7m) and a prospect.
C. He has offered me Ian Kinsler (5yrs/15m) and is interested in these three: Lawrie, Strasburg, Hamilton. I am reluctant to trade Stras or Hamilton. Would Lawrie for Kinsler be a good deal for me?
D. I trade Billy Butler for either Infante (2yrs/2m) or Rickie Weeks (3yrs/7m) and one of Gaby Sanchez (3yrs/3m), Loney (2yrs/2m) or Jesus Guzman (2yrs/2m). Seems to be a pretty significant degradation at 1B. Not sure if its worth it.
E. Owner has told me he is willing to trade Brandon Phillips (3yrs/9m). He has expressed interest in Hamilton and asked me what it would take. I like Hamilton, but it the deal makes sense for my team, I would consider it. Here is his roster:
Carlos Santana (5yrs/11.5), David Ortiz (1yrs/6), Miguel Cabrera (5yrs/20m), Juan Francisco (2yrs/2m), Ian Desmond (3yrs/4m), Jimmy Rollins (2yrs/7.5m), JD Martinez (2yrs/2m), Matt Kemp (5yrs/21m), Alex Rios (2yrs/4m), Shin-Soo Choo (2yrs/8m), Doug Fister (2yrs/3m), Mike Minor (2yrs/2m), Matt Hairston (1yrs/800k), Jason Motte (3yrs/4m), Greg Holland (1yr/800k), Papelbon (2yrs/8m +10m option), Brian Wilson (3yrs/5m).
I know this is kinda long, but I don't wanna make the wrong decision as I am pretty new to dynasty leauges.
What trade(s) make sense for me?
