    Holiday for Tulowitzki??

    I was offered
    Tulowitzki
    A. Soriano

    for
    Matt holiday
    Ian Kennedy

    I think the other manager will take either Holiday or Josh Hamilton in the deal, but he wants a sp. What do you guys think? My current staff consist of only 5 SP.

    Roy Oswalt
    Jhoulys Chacin
    Edinson Vólquez
    Ian Kennedy
    Jordan Zimmermann

    Jonathan Broxton
    Huston Street
    José Valverde
    Matt Thornton
    John Axford
    Jake McGee

    • if he takes either of those guys.. I would give up Hamilton before Holliday... but its a great trade for ya...

    • I think Tulo's the third most valuable player on the board due to position scarcity, the Coors effect and general awesomeness. Holiday barely squeaks into the top 20 and a slight drop-off would even move him out of the elite. That's a no-brainer for me.

      • So should I rather deal Holiday or Hamilton??
        Also, would I then keep Soriano? If I move Kennedy, I will only have 4 SP, although I have a deal propsed to me for Cj. Wilson, giving him RP Velerade. Am I overvaluing Kennedy too much?
        Here's my team as it stands:

        John Buck (Fla - C)
        Miguel Cabrera (Det - 1B)
        Rickie Weeks (Mil - 2B)
        Pedro Alvarez (Pit - 3B)
        Mike Aviles (KC - 2B,SS)
        Josh Hamilton (Tex - OF)
        Matt Holliday (StL - OF)
        Delmon Young (Min - OF)
        Justin Morneau (Min - 1B)
        Kelly Johnson (Ari - 2B)
        Ryan Raburn (Det - 2B,OF)
        Peter Bourjos (LAA - OF)

        Roy Oswalt (Phi - SP)
        Joulys Chacin (Col - SP,RP)
        Edinson Vólquez (Cin - SP)
        Jordan Zimmermann (Was - SP)
        Ian Kennedy (Ari - SP)

        Jonathan Broxton (LAD - RP)
        Huston Street (Col - RP)
        José Valverde (Det - RP)
        Matt Thornton (CWS - RP)
        John Axford (Mil - RP)
        Jake McGee (TB - RP)

    • With or without Kennedy your SP staff is not great. Losing him in this deal doesn't affect you. You can always find good SP alternatives throughout the year.

      With that said, if I am you, I am definitely doing this deal and would move Hamilton instead of Holliday. Tulo is an absolute stud at one of the weakest positions out there.

    • I'd offer Hamilton b4 Holliday. If your going to get Tulo, your going to have some injury concerns. No reason to have your SS, and OF weighing your mind down. Although I believe hamilton is a better player, I wouldn't expect him to play 100 games this year.

    • Holliday is replaceable with huff, swisher, werth, guerrero. all of them will get you 60+ extra base hits, 90+ rbis and runs. Holliday better, but not by that much.
      Tulowitzki is head and shoulders above everyone else other than Hanley, and even that is a toss up if Tulo stays healthy.

      Kennedy is a good pitcher, but replaceable. Idon't know the specs of your league, but anytime you can fill your weakest position with a Tulo, take it and fill in the rest later.

    • Also, would I then keep Soriano? If I move Kennedy, I will only have 4 SP, although I have a deal propsed to me for Cj. Wilson, giving him RP Velerade. Am I overvaluing Kennedy too much?

    • Take it. Kinsler is often injured and You can always junk Soriano for the flavor of the day OF that comes along with a surprise season.
