Deep AL Only keeper, Coco and Dempster or Myers and Straily

Postby KTrout17 » Sun Aug 05, 2012 7:58 pm

Deep 10-team AL keeper league. Able to keep seven players, with contract extensions of $5 x #years. Current keepers through next year, all extension-eligible:

Salvador Perez $3
Jason Kipnis $7
Josh Willingham $6
Mike Trout $1
Wei-Yin Chen $1
Wil Myers $1
Dan Straily $1

roto league, I'm in second place, a bat that can keep my average over .270 and get me some steals, and a pitcher that can get me some wins or saves, and help wittle away the damage Ubaldo and Liriano have done to my ERA and WHIP(4.26/1.352).

Was offered Coco Crisp and Ryan Dempster, non-keepers, for my Myers and Straily.

The hype and big first start of Straily compared to the sad-move-to-Texas-AL Dempster the day I got the offer has me sitting here debating when I probably shouldn't be. Any thoughts on how far down Dempster goes, and if Straily has a good chance at staying clean enough to be worth not making the move?

Not a good trade...

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.

The only real targets for trade for steals are Coco, $13 Alcides Escobar, and a $1 Ben Revere that I'm not sure why that team would be willing to give up. Would you say it's a bad trade because you have no faith in Dempster, or because you have faith in Straily? The team with Escobar has $39 Weaver and $20 Kuroda, but that'd likely cost a bit more...

I don't know what I can add that I haven't written on the blog for both of them...
