Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
(It's a 10-team roto league.)
I can have 5 keepers-right now I'm keeping Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Cole Hamels, Jose Bautista, and Felix Hernandez. I would be losing, most importantly, B.J. Upton and R.A. Dickey. I have the #7 pick in a snake draft. The guy with the #5 pick proposed trading it and Martin Prado for Jose Bautista. Do I do it?
No. Prado on new team having lost best player doesn't project highly to me. Bautista on the hand has gained a Reyes and Lawrie should improve and his Beast Mode season capability can't be dealt away for 2spots and a low 2nd tier level player of Prado's. Your 5 Keepers are Legit stick with them. Only thing I'd consider is trading away a Hamels/Felix or Dickey combo of 2 for a top tier 1b/3b. If a team has only 4 good keepers and like Pitchers and own a Fielder,Votto,Pujols, or Miggy I'd try acquiring them. BJ Upton isn't worthy of Keeping in your 10team league on any team so you cant trade him. Now Keeping one of Hamels or Felix and acquiring a top tier Infield Bat is a great starter team with your OF set an Ace and 1 top Position player in infield. Dickey is an Ace as well its just a wonder how he performs in AL.
You can stand pat do nothing and be fine. But if you can attain a top 16 type player to add to the Bautista,Trout,Harper top 16 you have now It will be quite an intimidating team.
