Chapman for Mauer?

Postby mindspin311 » Thu Aug 02, 2012 9:50 am

Guy in my league sees that I have a crappy catching situation and is looking for a closer. He's offering me Mauer for Chapman. Seems like a steal...

Your catcher leads the league in home runs... I'm not sure how that's crappy.

Mauer seems more valuable with your league's categories than he would be in a typical 5X5 league where I would say the trade is pointless. It could help you out a bit, but Chapman's huge number of K's in a small number of innings are really hard to replace.

Yea, the HRs are nice, but its either a HR or a K. So he's killing me in AVG right now.

I have more than enough power production from my OF and UTIL spots.


I do like Chapman and his K's. Wonder if I can give him someone else?

I think you'd be better off if he would take someone else... Obviously it'd be awesome ifmhe would take Aceves or Holland, but I doubt that he would. I think I'd even offer Papelbon over Chapman; he's got the name value without the ratio or K value that Chapman has, which says a lot because Papelbon gets plenty of K's too.
Or maybe the guy would take Salty and Aceves. That might be an insulting offer, but maybe he could use a replacement catcher along with a closer.

Lucroy and Doumit are probably the most productive 2 out there. I am seriously considering Lucroy simply to help my AVG. Power is not much of a concern out of my catcher position.
