Johan Trade Quandary

Postby Garnold » Wed May 06, 2009 6:25 pm

Ah, the season is so young. But I am itchy to pull a trade. And when (arguably) the best pitcher in the majors in mentioned, I like to check my options. He wants one of the following hitters and one of the following pitchers in exchange for Johan and a hitter with steals.

The hitters he wants: Utley, Beltran, Markakis, Pena, Ibanez, Maggs

Pitchers he wants: Ted Lilly, Jurrjens, Maholm or Joba.

He would offer me Johan and either Brian Roberts or Chone Figgins. Now I know you hate both of these players, so I figured you were the best person to ask. I'm entertaining the idea of a trade for Johan and Brian Roberts, offering him Joba and Ibanez just to start things off. Just curious if you think I should stand pat with my roster or go for broke with a big trade.

Here is my roster in a 12 team 5X5 roto league.. I lead R, HR's, RBI's and AVG but I'm in line to end up close to last in SB's, best case scenario middle of the pack. My pitching has been so-so, but the K's and ratios have been yummy.

Whoa, incredibly convoluted! Basically:

I trade Joba and Ibanez.

I get Johan and Brian Roberts.

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.

I know! Thus is my quandary. Should I stand pat?

Or perhaps an offer as such:

Joba, Maholm and Maggs

For Santana and Roberts.

Am I giving too much?

No, he is giving up too much. Pull the trigger and if he says yes, do some cartwheels.
