Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
There are two owners wanting to trade OF's with me for pitching, where I am very deep. I cant decide what OF to go after.
Team A has: Granderson, Magglio, Dye
Team B has: Hawpe, Wells.
What OF should I go after on each team and overall? It IS a keeper league, hopefully long term. My league is a regular pts league, not a roto league, also.
i'd say wells or granderson.
hawpe i don't think has completely proven himself yet. check his road numbers, i may be wrong.
maggs is injury prone (outside of last year) but when he's in there, he's productive, i will say that.
dye has a tendancy to fall off the face of the earth for a few months. whatever he's on pace for, shave off like 10-12 homers, 20 ribbies and .20-.30 points off his AVG and OBP.
granderson may be experiencing stuggles but he's young with a lot of ability. more of a multitool player.
wells is solid and has some years left as well. he may not put up monster numbers all year, but he goes through streaks of 20 game hitting streaks batting over .400 and resurging his numbers.
just my two cents.
Maggs or Dye. I know Maggs is currently hurt but he has better long term investments than Dye or Granderson (for Keepers). Or Dye, he's great, but not so good for a Keeper...
No to Hawpe and Wells.
It's a Keeper league, so you need to think this year and next...and next, etc.

Well after Maggs got put on the 15 day DL today, there is basically no way im going for him, as that really reduces his value this season and he is 34, so he wont be as helpful in a keeper more than 1-2 more seasons. Same for Dye, as he is also 34, though he as been crushing the ball lately.
Thats why Im leaning towards Hawpe, Granderson, or even Wells, but I still want someone who will produce for me this year, as well as down the road.

I havent decided who I am giving, but I will almost def come out on the better end of the deal. Both of these owners are desperate for pitching and have a wealth of OFs, and since its a 20 team league, trades are basically the only way to add value, so Im probably going to give up Kyle Lohse or someone like that.
