Found a Trade Partner. Thoughts? WHIR

Postby bcdavis31 » Thu Apr 03, 2014 11:29 am

There are two primary positions that I'd like to upgrade in my roster- 3B and RP. There's one guy in my league (who was on autodraft) who has a stockpile of both of those. Because he's so clogged up at both positions, I feel like I may be able to take a guy or two off his hands cheaper than I normally would.

14-Man H2H
Batting: H, R, RBI, HR, SB, Avg
Pitching: W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

MY ROSTER:
C: J. Castro HOU
1B: C. Davis BAL
2B: J. Kipnis CLE
3B: Brett Lawrie TOR
SS: E. Cabrera SD
OF: J. Bruce CIN
OF: H. Pence SF
OF: C. Beltran NYY
UTIL: D. Jennings TB
UTIL: J Abreu CWS
BN: B. Revere PHI
BN: D. Jeter NYY
BN: K. Wong STL
DL: M. Bourn

SP: Y. Darvish TEX
SP: C. Hamels PHI
RP: J. Henderson MIL
RP: J Hoover CIN
P: C. Buchholz BOS
P: S. Kazmir OAK
P: C. Tillman BAL
P: T. Hudson SF
BN: T. Wood CHC
BN: M. Pineda NYY


HIS ROSTER:
C: W. Ramon NYM
1B: M. Napoli BOS
2B: B. Dozier MIN
3B: D. Wright NYM
SS: A. Cabrera CLE
OF: M. Trout LAA
OF: G. Stanton MIA
OF: Y. Cespedes OAK
UTIL: R. Zimmerman WSH
UTIL: D. Brown PHI
BN: W. Middlebrooks BOS
BN: M. Moustakas KC
BN: E. Young NYM
BN: C. Owings ARI

SP: M. Cain SF
SP: H. Ryu LAD
RP: T. Rosenthal STL
RP: C. Janssen TOR
P: H. Street SD
P: J. Veras CHC
P: I. Kennedy WSH
P: L. Hawkins COL
BN: D. Straily OAK

So he has four dedicated 3B in Wright, Zimmerman, Middlebrooks, and Moustakas, and five relievers (all closers, save for Janssen on the DL) in Rosenthal, Janssen, Street, Veras, and Hawkins.

Ideally, I wanted to try to make a 3for2 (or a 2for1) deal to clear up a little space, as Darvish and Bourn should return from the DL this weekend and Hamels (hopefully) is soon to follow. Additional note, waiver wire for hitters is pretty thin right now.

Any thoughts on who I should target with what I have? Thanks for your input. Post a link to yours and I'll take a look.

I was thinking maybe Tillman/Bourn/Lawrie for Zimmerman/Rosenthal? Something along those lines. What looks good?

I would try your offer first to see if he bites. If not, I might try Jeter/Beltran/Tillman for Zimmerman/Rosenthal. I think the Jeter name might be able to get you a little more value. Good luck

Help with mine?

Both of those offers seem fair to me. When I look at your teams, no natural trade comes to my mind. I'm guessing that if you do a 2 for 1 trade, you'd want to get a reliever?

Yes, I'd prefer an RP. Just thought I could stand to improve at 3b. Any ideas for a 2for1?

Jennings for Zimmerman (he could use an OF and you have Revere on the bench)
Abreu/jennings/buchholz/beltran
stanton/zimm/rosenthal.

Do not offer him a 3b back in any deal...he has more than enough.
Don't over that much a lowball you will run him away, you need to give up some talent you can spare and you could spare either Jennings or Beltran and Breu and Buchholz (sell on name value) here...
You would significantly improve your 3b, get a better OF and RP upgrade with trade two. Trade one would just take care of your 3b.

Thanks a lot, Maddog. Always great feedback from you. I'll throw something like that out there and see how it goes.
