Ok, so my 10 team keeper league team is in my signature. We can keep 3 players. The player you keep, you forfeit the round you picked him in in next year's draft. The players I'm looking to keep (I'm struggling to pick three of these guys) are Trout (1), JUpton (3), Goldschmidt (5), or Segura (last round). I still have to figure out which three to pick. So, essentially, my first, third, fifth, and last round picks are off limits.
A guy in my league has announced he is in full on sell mode. Kershaw, Wainwright, Price, and Votto are for sale. However, he is looking for draft picks next year.
My team, imo, needs more pitching. Cain, Dickey, Greinke...all are under performing right now. My offense seems to be pretty good.
Do you think I should look to acquire any of the players he's looking to move? Kershaw would obviously be my first choice, but who would you rather have after that, Wainwright or Price?
What kind of picks should I realistically look to move for either of them? Would you look to move Taveras and a pick for one of his players? Taveras was picked in round 21 of 24. Since he probably won't be a keeper for me wouldn't he be a great trading chip for me? He should hold a lot of value.
Maybe Taveras+ (which round draft pick?) for one of Kershaw/Wainwright/Price/Votto.
I've never traded picks before, so I need Razzball's brain trust to help me on this. Thanks!
