Machado trade. WHIR

Postby dcmove2003 » Mon Jul 31, 2017 11:58 am

11 team roto keeper league (you keep your best 3 players each year). In 4th place in need of RBI, OPS, and average, but also trying to get better keeper for next year. Machado is available.

Would you trade Bellinger + Hamilton to get Machado? What if he asks for Rizzo + Hamilton? Would you do one or both of those deals? My infield is somewhat weak right now outside of Rizzo.

WHIR. Leave a link.

Current team:
C: Gattis
1B: Rizzo
2B: Matt Carpenter
3B: Longoria
SS: Chris Taylor
CI: Cody Bellinger
OF: George Springer
OF: Starling Marte
OF: Billy Hamilton
Util: Eric Thames
Bench: Corey Dickerson
Bench: Lewis Brinson
Bench: Rougned Odor
SP: Lester
SP: deGrom
SP: Sonny Gray
SP: Cueto (DL)
SP: Sean Mannea
RP: S. Doolittle

I don't think I do either of these trades. I don't know what happened to Machado this year, but he is just too inconsistent. If you only keep 3 I would rather keep Rizzo, Bellinger, Springer, Hamilton, Marte, and Thames over Machado right now. With how bad he has been you should be able to buy much lower.

I would pass. I would rather have Rizzo, Springer and Bellinger as my 3 keepers for next year.
