I was offered Matt Cain & Craig Kimbrel for Mike Trout and one of my catchers. Either Montero, Santana or Mauer. I'm in 1st place and the trade partner is in 2nd. I have a great chance to win the league either way but I feel like it might be good to sell high on Trout. My weakness is RP. Good or bad trade? Can't make trade this week since we're playing each other.
This is my team:
3B M. Young
OF De Aza
As you can see I only have 2 healthy RP and I have 3 catchers. I've already made several trades to build the team to where it is. Bourn or Jackson would replace Trout should I make the trade. Losing a catcher won't hurt but I don't think Trout can continue at the pace he is. FYI It's a money league and not a keeper league. I could use a pitching boost but I don't have to have it although I will probably lose the saves each week. No RP are available on waivers.
The one and only way you hesitate on this move is if your playing a Keeper league.
You need saves and will be getting basically the current best closer in baseball plus Cain who is a real ace.
You give up Trout... but really he's 21/22 and will not keep up this pace. For a 1 year league you are selling high and could not go any better then this.
