Trade VJax and Finley for possible #1 overall? (WHIR)

Postby Achmed » Tue Feb 08, 2011 10:49 pm

Here is my situation:

I have this week to make a trade, or wait until August. I get six keepers. I figure they are Rodgers, CJ2K, MJD, Charles, Jennings, and Fitzgerald.

I also get two keepers with 2 yrs experience or less. Candidates include Wallace, Starks, Danario, Benn and Pettigrew. I'm leaning Wallace and Starks.

I don't think I can keep VJax or Finley over any of the guys in the first six. But I hate to just outright cut them. And so far I'm getting cr@p offers ("how about my 5th rounder for Finley" -- mind you that after six keepers, that equates to round 11).

What if I package VJax and Finley together to the last place team for his first round pick? It's not guaranteed to be the #1 overall, as the last three teams are in a weighted lottery. Statistically, it's likely the #1 overall, but could be #2 or #3.

My thinking is that the other team is so bad, both in record (5-21 playing doubleheaders) and scoring (70 ppg where the league avg is closer to 83; mine was in the mid-90s) that he doesn't exactly become invincible after this deal. His roster as of now includes: Mathews, FJax, Lynch, Torain, DJax, Britt, Branch and Heap. Essentially, a lot of yuck. Plus he's in the other division.

I know on paper it's a big overpay. But given that I'm likely to lose them for nothing, would you do this deal?

What if the other owner would give his #1 for MJD? Then I could keep Finley.

I definitely wouldnt give MJD for #1 overall. Since you cant keep Finley or VJax, if #1 overall pick is all you can get then I would trade them for it. You cant just let them go for nothing!!

Agree with this. Give both Finley and VJax for the number one if you can't keep those two. Both sides win.
