Keeper trade

#1 Post by mooonkyu » July 17th, 2017, 1:24 pm

Need help evaluating a keeper trade. Send Judge ($10 next year), Morton and Cobb for Greinke Kenley Jansen and Bryce Harper.

I'm in second by 5 points based mostly on my offense. Areas for improvement are Steals and pitching. Top steals guys are fostered by my competitors so I figure I need to bolster my pitching. I just traded Fulmer and Rodon for deGrom and Quintana. There is a 1500 innings cap and I only have 680 ks in 780 innings pitched so far. Even with deGrom and Quintana I think I need more k/9 given the hole I've dug for myself. I'm also right behind the first place team in saves so that could be a two point swing.

Here is my squad. Would you make the deal?

2b Kinsler

What are the salaries and contract lengths of the other players involved?

Salaries as follows: Judge $10, Cobb $10, Morton $10 for Harper $47, Jansen $26 Greinke $15.

Our league limits keepers for prize money finishers. First keeps one, second two, etc. There is $7 inflation and the minimum keeper price is $10. There is no contract length. Just inflation. Judge is a great value for the next 2-3 years ($10, $17, $24).

Thanks for taking a look!

So long as you don't have a cap to deal with, I don't personally care about salaries in this type of deal. The intent is to win the league.

All that matters is the category math -- which only you can do. Assuming as logical a conclusion as you can for the rest of the season, how much better are your chances to win? That's all that matters.

The hole in K/9 is huge. Be honest in your assessment and do the category math.

No cap, no foul... under these circumstances, I'd make the deal. dependent on it satisfying your immediate needs.
