Ackley vs. Gyorko

Postby AdmiralTrey » Thu Mar 28, 2013 4:21 am

Hey, Grey!

I've been offered Dustin Ackley for my Jedd Gyorko in a keeper league. We only keep four so keeping either past this year is very unlikely.

You have both of these players similarly ranked... Would I be better off with the lower upside but more rounded Ackley or the potential breakout player in Gyorko?
Another caveat is that I have two injured third basemen right now and Gyorko is 3B eligible...

My offense:
C - Mike Napoli
1B - Eric Hosmer
2B - Aaron Hill
3B - Todd Frazier
SS - Erick Aybar
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Mike Trout
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
UTL - Brett Lawrie
UTL - Austin Jackson
Bench - Hanley Ramirez, Jedd Gyorko

12 Team H2H, 4 unrestricted keepers
C - Mike Napoli
1B - Eric Hosmer
2B - Jedd Gyorko
3B - Todd Frazier
SS - Jhonny Peralta
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Mike Trout
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
UTL - Brett Lawrie
UTL - Adam LaRoche
Bench - Austin Jackson
DL - Aaron Hill Hanley Ramirez

SP - Clayton Kershaw, Madison Bumgarner, Ubaldo Jimenez, Jhoulys Chacin, Ervin Santana
RP - Glen Perkins, Heath Bell, Jose Veras, Ernesto Fireri, Edward Mujica, Carlos Marmol, J.J. Putz

RCL - Cracking the WHIP - Admiral Trey
C - Yadier Molina
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Jose Altuve
3B - Jedd Gyorko
SS - Jimmy Rollins
MI - Everth Cabrera
CI - Justin Morneau
OF - Jason Heyward, Shin-Soo Choo, Michael Morse, Nick Swisher, Ben Revere
UTL - Kendrys Morales
Bench - Garrett Jones, David Freese


SP - Justin Verlander, Cliff Lee, Ryan Dempster, Ubaldo Jimenez
RP - Jonathan Papelbon, John Axford, Glen Perkins, Ryan Cook, David Robertson

Not sure it really matters. I think Gyorko has the upside of Ackley and Ackley might have a little more upside but not enough to break the top 10 of 2B. Plus you have Frazier to help fill in at 3B. I might take Ackley because I think he is safer but since you already have Gyorko I would probably stand pat. Just no incentive to do this deal.

Yeah, the only reason I'd do it is Ackley has already been in the majors for two years and has a speed component too, but I'm a believer in Gyorko's power, Petco or not. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't giving up on a decent opportunity to trade up.
