H2H Points Trade/Keeper Questions (WHIR)

Postby CubanMissles » Wed Mar 05, 2014 11:56 am

Hey guys, this points league is messing with my head so I need some help. I have been offered the following trade.

I Give: Kole Calhoun
I Get: AJ Griffin

At first look, I figured I'd decline automatically, but the more I look at my team, I realize I have WAY too many OF's and my SP is meh at best outside of Fernandez and Salazar. I'll post my roster at the end, but what do you guys think? The projection system I used and modified to reflect how my league scores has Griffin outscoring Calhoun by 12 points, but not sure it took into account Calhoun leading off this year.

My 2nd question is I need to pick 3 of these 6 players to keep.
1B- Brandon Moss
1B- Mike Napoli
2B-Omar Infante
SP- Jon Niese
SP- Hiroki Kuroda
RP- Addison Reed

Position isn't important because I already have starters in their spots. As far as Reed goes, Masterson has RP eligibility for some reason so he's stuck there now, but I should be able to draft Rosenthal, Uehara, or Perkins without an issue. I was leaning towards keeping Moss, Kuroda, and Niese.

Here is my roster
C- Wilin Rosario
1B- Joey Votto
2B- Jason Kipnis
SS- Elvis Andrus
3B- David Wright
LF- Starling Marte
CF- Shin-Soo Choo
RF- Jason Heyward
DH/UTIL- Carlos Gomez
BN- Napoli
BN- P. Alvarez
BN- Oscar Taveras
BN- Infante
BN- B. Moss
BN- Calhoun

SP- Justin Masterson
SP- Matt Garza
SP- Jeff Samardzija
SP- Jose Fernandez
SP- Danny Salazar
RP- Addison Reed
BN- Hiroki Kuroda

If it meets your needs, do it. I do like Calhoun still.

Same here that's my issue. He kinda reminds me of Matt Carpenter before last year. But I mean Heyward is in RF, Taveras will be up eventually, and Moss even has RF eligibility.

Guess the real question is, is AJ Griffin an upgrade over Niese or Kuroda.

Since you need SP I would do it. It's close though and you may regret losing Calhoun

Since you have Oscar Taveras waiting in the wings, I'd do the trade to shore up your pitching a bit.

I'd do the trade too but I think Griffin is on par with Kuroda and better than Niese.

I also agree that Griffin will definitely put up more points in your league than Calhoun.

please help
