Selling Howard

Postby Steve » Tue Jul 15, 2008 2:55 pm

With the outlook for Rios a bit bleak, what about Howard + Rios for Sizemore? Or is that giving up too much? (disclosure: I'd be trading with my sister! She has Sizemore - and Loney at 1st).

I'd want Sizemore if I could afford to lose Howard's HRs at first. It's a fair deal though that is good for the both of you.

BTW, You don't have to tell us every time you're trading with your sister.

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'd move Tex from Util to 1B and fill Util with either Hawpe or Juan Rivera.

Rios + Howard not enough for Grady, apparently. Sheesh.

You know what they say, you can choose your friends but you can't choose your rela...

Whatever.

Will try for Rollins and Braun now. Braun to LF, Tex to 1B, Hawpe to Util

You like?

Rollins and Braun for Grady? No, I don't like that. It's way too much.

Another possibility is me sending Howard + Yunel + Rios + Mariano to the Reyes owner for Jose + Vlad + Brian Wilson. Yunel is a throw-in, obviously, but I need to at least make a gesture at helping him replace Reyes.

Thoughts? He has A-Gonz at 1B currently.

Update: He just offered me Kinsler + Gagne for Howard and Mariano, which is a bit of a joke, obviously. What about I go back with a variation on the above: Howard + Rios + Mariano for Kinsler, Vlad and Wilson? I like what I'd be getting, the downside would be that Bruce would become my starting CF...

Rivera and Wilson both get saves. So whatever.
Howard is the top guy in the trade. You're moving him. Not usually a good sign.
Rios could be better than Vlad. (Probably not, but there's a distinct possibility.)
You have to put Bruce in CF.

Eh.
