Scherzer trade

Postby john » Mon Feb 17, 2020 10:02 pm

6 keeper H2H league. Team and settings in the signature.

Looking for advice. Trade would be:

My Scherzer and picks 10, last
For
His Villar and picks 1, 5.

I'm currently without a pick 5 so that would plug that hole. This plan would likely have me not keeping a pitcher and just focusing on drafting reliables early. I'd likely keep Acuna, Altuve, Rizzo, Suarez, Vladito, Villar.

I also have a tentative deal to send Altuve for Mondesi + TBD extra (maybe picks).

Thoughts on these two potential trades? If I pursue the Villar trade should I definitely pursue the Mondesi trade? Thoughts on my keeper strategy? I know Vladito isn't ranked high but I just don't know if I can let his potential fall into enemy hands.

Thanks for any help and advice!!

Trading for Mondesi and Villar makes no sense...Trade for one of them -- I'd prefer Mondesi

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

I don't think I was clear. It would be a domino effect. I have no SS right now that I would keep. If I trade Scherzer, I'd get Villar. I'd then trade Altuve and get Mondesi.

So the end result would be me having Villar and Mondesi and higher draft picks. But losing Scherzer and Altuve.

How does that sound?

Villar has 2B/SS eligiblity in Yahoo, if that's why it doesn't make sense to you.

Or I could just trade Altuve for Mondesi. And keep Scherzer. But lose out on more high draft picks and have to draft a 2B.

Potential full end-to-end trade involving 3 teams for added clarity:

I'd receive:
Villar (2B/SS), Mondesi (SS), 2 first round picks, 1 fifth round pick

I'd trade away:
Scherzer, Altuve, 10th round pick and last 2 picks

I'd keep Acuna, Mondesi, Rizzo, Suarez, Villar, Vladito. I'd also have 3 total first round picks.

Does this make sense? Mondesi and Villar are possible busts but potential dictates I pull this trigger. Doesn't it? What am I missing, Grey?
