Trout Trade?

Postby Nicky Numbnuts » Mon Dec 17, 2012 11:57 am

10 team, 8 man keeper with no constraints, 2 catcher, roto league. With keeper leagues, the idea is not to get the best young talent, but to win every year, correct? I strongly believe in position scarcity. Should I offer Trout & Bumgarner for Cano & Mauer? Trout is obviously a stud but i believe he is due for some regression. My keepers as of now are: Wieters, Tex, Tulo, Wright, Trout, Kershaw, Greinke & Bumgarner. I figure having Wieters & Mauer, plus my infield set and 2 studly pitchers i would be well on my way of repeating as Champ. After trade my keepers would be:

Mauer
Wieters
Tex
Cano
Tulo
Wright
Kershaw
Greinke

All thoughts are greatly appreciated.

I agree, it's not good...

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.

Thanks guys! Would your opinion change if instead of Cano & Mauer I try to obtain Grey's boy Giancarlo & Carlo Santana? Thanks again!

Not nearly enough for Trout. Trout is a top 5 player right now so you should be able to get Cano and another top 30 player. I don't really like the deal for Stanton unless you can upgrade Santana.

And really why are you wanting to deal Trout. As you said the point is to win now and Trout helps you win now more than dealing him for lesser players.
