Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I was offered a trade in a 10 team Keeper League/ Head to Head format. This league we can trade draft picks next season. I am currently in 2nd in the league.
I have recently made a trade with another player that will be effective on the 14th.
I gave Puig, Sandoval and Derek Holland + 2nd Round
He gave Votto, McCutchen and King Felix + 4th round
The trade proposed is:
I give David Price + 3rd Round
He gives Ryan Zimmerman, Hamilton + 8th Round
My Team is currently (including the recent trade effective on the 14th):
C - Rosario
1B - Votto
2nd - Pedroia
3rd - Matt Carpenter (STL)
SS - Tulo
OF - McCutchen
OF - Markakis
OF - Bautista
Utl - Segura
Utl - Pence
SP - Minor
SP - Iwakuma
SP - Teheran
RP - G. Holland
RP - G. Perkins
P - Kenley Jansen
P - Ervin Santana
BN - Hernandez (King Felix)
BN - Colon
BN - Corbin
BN - Price
I am not the most excited by my pitching and hestate with the loss of Price... Also with both trades if i go with this one, I lose 2nd and Third round next year. But if I win this year I get to add an additional keeper as the prize for winning the season. Setting is 5 keepers, but with a season win it would be 6 keepers.
I like the Zimmerman gain at 3, allowing me to move Carpenter around as needed for injuries etc, since he is 1st, 2nd, 3rd and OF eldigible
What are your thoughts on this.. I am torn
I would take the trade. Value-wise you are winning. Hamilton will be great again at some point. And I believe Price is only going to get worse every year. don't get me wrong, still elite, but to a lesser extent. Never gonna have a sub 2.75 ERA again. On another note, do everything in your power to dump Colon. He is a ticking time bomb. Corbin too, but to a lesser extent. I would do the trade and try to package Corbin and Colon for a slumping ace.
if your pitching was alittle stronger i would do it but as it stands right now i wouldn't since Colon is about to be suspended. unless there is a very good option in the FA wire to replace one of Price or Colon i wouldn't do it.
