Bauer for Gausman in keeper league?

Postby jasongoum » Mon Mar 18, 2013 5:41 pm

I've been offered Gausman (who I think is better) for Bauer ( who I feel will start year in rotation). Both are 1$ in our keeper league. Should I pull the trigger & wait or keep Bauer.

I'd want Bauer...

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.

As someone who owned both Bauer and Gausman in my Dynasty league this year, I'd keep Bauer if only for his trade value. Just to give you a sense of his possible value here's how they've both been valued in my league.....

Bauer went 158th overall in the draft.
Gausman went 262nd overall (to me.).

I then acquired Bauer in a deal for Michael Wacha + Leonys Martin....and then dealt him elsewhere along with Aaron Sanchez and Joey Gallo for Jose Fernandez and Javier Baez.

While I agree with you that I'd prefer to own Gausman, (as much as I like Bauer's upside, he seems to have a few screws loose, I like him less as a AL pitcher, and his flameout rate is significant, imo)........I think the smart play here would be to counter this managers offer with a Bauer + prospect/player for Gausman + prospect/player (than you like a decent amount more than the one you're dealing).

If this guy made the offer above, that likely means there's wiggle room on his part to get a deal done.....
