My heart is pounding....Fielder of dreams

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

My heart is pounding....Fielder of dreams

Postby Big League Chew » Mon Apr 06, 2009 6:43 pm

So not too long ago I posted a question about a Santana for the big Tex trade. I thought that it would go through but it didn't. Now I think that I have the opportunity for the 2009 "Raking the coals" award for this trade offer. I'm thinking that this trade is too good to be true so I wanted to let you in on it Grey. This is my 12 team, 12 player keeper league. I have already lost my 1st round pick in next year's draft (really a 13th round). I would be trading Chris Davis+Posada+2nd or 3rd round pick for Fielder+Capps. Is this really not a huge move? Am I missing something? Please let me know soon so that I can do this before he wakes up to reality.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Well I thought that I would get him on that, but he seems to have wised up. He now says that he wants J. Upton/Davis/Cain for Fielder/Capps. I'm having a hard time pulling the trigger on this one because of giving away 2 young keepers for 1 plus Cain. IF I could convince him to trade me Fielder for Upton and Davis, would this be good for me? It just scares me because combined Davis and Upton are 20 years more and Fielder may be 10. However, I do realize that he could be a top 10 player this year. Ah.....this is why we play fantasy baseball. I was thinking also about adding Posada for Capps to get rid of dead weight on my team.

Posada for Capps? No, don't do that.

I wouldn't do that.

Fielder for Upton and Davis
Not crazy about this either.

Yeah I didn't like it either. I offered him this deal instead - Davis/Cain/Gordon for Fielder Capps and his 1st round pick. My big issue is that I don't want Davis to be a fall, and I'm afraid that I won't be able to keep Cain AND Gordon at the end of the season. Thanks for the advice.
