Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I have been offered Ryan Howard and Derek Jeter for jimmy Rollins and Justin Morneau. This is the 2nd year of a 3 year keeper league, 1 players, Head to head format.
Is Derek over the hill? His numbers have dipped each year over the last three years.
Is Jimmy Rollins coming back to earth? 2007 was his career year?
Will I get the Justin or Ryan of 2006 or 2007?
I think you have to pass on this one.. Jeter is still a great SS, but in fantasy-terms, he is a huge drop-off from J-Roll. Howard is an upgrade over Morneau, but not enough to cover the loss in production from Jeter for Rollins.
depends how bad you need steals. If the answer is "BAD" then go for it. If your not hurting for steals don't bother. Jeter is the man *gag* and I trust Howard to put up better power numbers than Morneau.
Depends on your needs. I'm assuming this is a 5x5 league!
Jeter and Howard will get you more RBI and a better BA. Morneau and Rollins will get you more SB's. The Rs are a wash.. I'm guessing both duo's will get you 60 HR, However there is a much higher cieling for Jeter and Howard. I wouldn't put 80 out of the rhealm of possibility. So I guess I'm saying I would take the offer!!
In a custom league with OBP SLG and OPS it isn't even close Howard and Jeter easily!
I would keep the guys you have. Jeter will be consistent with average, not really with power numbers.
Rollins might come back to earth a bit, but you will get SB with him. And howard and morneau are relatively equal.
stick with them for now and see how it pans out. that's what I would do
after thinking about it, it isn't a tough call. I would probably hold off. I like your combo better.
obviously Howard is better than Morneau. He plays in a little league park, has a great lineup around him and you know he's gonna produce big numbers.
Morneau is gonna hit in the 4 spot this year, I have no Idea why tori hunter was hitting in front of him last year. His numbers will be solid.
Rollins may regress a little this year, but not much. He did have a career year, but he is still young and I bet while his numbers might not be 07 numbers, it'll be close.
Jeter is getting older. He never was a top 25 fantasy player. He'll give you solid average, 10-15 hrs and about 20 steals. He doesn't even make the bigger board honorable mention anymore.
Stick with Morneau and Rollins. The more top 20 fantasy players on your team the better you will be. Heck, Rollins is even ranked above Howard, whereas jeter doesn't even make the top 100.
