Trade I regret immediately

Postby Scarlett Johansson » Wed Jun 18, 2008 12:36 pm

12 team keeper (H2H Keep 5), I traded Jay Bruce, Matt Kemp and Tim Lincecum for Alfonso Soriano and crap, i.e. Randy Winn, Jorge Cantu, Kevin Gregg, and Ben Francisco.

Before people scrutinize me, I thought this:

1. I am thin in OF with or without this trade
2. Randy Winn and Matt Kemp have the same EXACT numbers
3. I have questionable closers (Brendan Morrow, Ryan Franklin, Mike Gonzalez?)
4. Tied for first in division at 6-5. Ugh
5. I don't think SP does much in H2H 5-Cat format.

I made this trade to get Soriano in July and next season, and I do not know if I would have kept Jay Bruce or not.
With Soriano, my keepers are A-rod, Fielder, BJ Upton, Soriano and my choice of Russell Martin/Chris B Young/Chad Billingsley/Alex Gordon.

Someone please tell me I am not a complete dope. I figure I will platoon my OF (CBY, Francisco, Winn, Luke Scott, Jason Kubel) until Soriano comes back. Is Bruce that much more valuable than Soriano in keeper?

UGH

It's actually a much worse trade for this year. Soriano might be all right next year, but even if he's not, your keepers for next year are fine. As for this year, this trade doesn't help you and you could have gotten much better players.

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.

Soriano's dead to me now. I kept him from last season and I've just had it with his injuries. Call it bad luck or whatever you want, but I'm so fed up with him that I wouldn't draft him with the 20th pick if he fell there. I'm starting to think he's overrated. Look at El Caballo's ADP compared to the Fonz. After the bitter taste in my mouth from Fonz I'd rather take Caballo at Fonz's spot.

I agree with Grey. Your keepers are fine for next season but you could have done a lot better. Lincecum is commanding a premium with his current stats and Bruce hasn't crashed and burned (yet). Sorry, but the other guy is probably snickering as we speak.

Yup, I would agree with both of those experts. In other words, you didn't get any vaseline with that trade. They just bent you over hard.
