Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
10 team, h2h, keeps 10. I have been offered this mega-trade.....and need to know whether i should do it, or am i giving up too much?
I give: Crawford, Youk, Granderson, Hanson, 12th pick
I get: Fiedler, Victor Martinez, Jayson Werth, James Shields, #5 overall, #21 overall
The way I saw it
Fielder > Crawford
Victor> Youkilis (cause of C eligbility)
Werth >Granderson (more power, less question marks)
Hanson >> Shields (def a downgrade)
# 5 overall and #21 overall >>> #12 overall.
My other keepers
I really wouldn't do this although it is tempting. I value Granderson much more than you do, the new ball park could do wonders for him. Either way, taking that out of the equation, when I look at Crawford and Youk for Fielder and Martinez, yes it's slightly toward the Fielder side. Definitely. But to do that, I have to take James Shields. Yuck. I would barely even draft him in a yearly league. I don't want to give up Hanson for that. He could be a real stud. Seeing as how all your other pitcher keepers are older, I wouldn't want to mess with it.
Wow, I thought I already responded.
You know, I almost prefer you don't do it. The position players are kind of a wash for me. It's Hanson >> Shields that makes me say "no".
