Hello Assembly, This is a 2 part question as I was offered these two trades in the same day…go figure.
I am in a 16 team dynasty league, head-to-head scoring
Hitters – R, HR, RBI, AVG, SB, BB, 2B, 3B – Pitchers – W, K, ERA, WHIP, SV, HLD, IP, QS
26 players per team & the contracts are as follows:
two 5 years, three 4 years, four 3 years, six 2 years, remaining are one year contracts.
We also have 170m salary cap.
I was proposed: Manny Machado (7m/4 years), Jed Lowrie (6m/3 years) and Brandon Beachy (5.5m/3 years) for My K. Seager (4.5m/3 years) and Jose Altuve (5.25m/3 years). Do you think Machado’s potential is great enough to trade for? Would you do this deal? I like Beachy because he is cheap and can be replaced by a free agent since he is a DL player. Lowrie’s drop in production is a concern, but I like his 2B/SS eligibility.
I was then proposed by a different manager: G. Springer (3m/5 years) Ventura – MiLB roster – not signed until end of season after call up (2.5m/6 years beginning next year) and C.J. Cron (4.5m/3 years) for My Trout (5.25m/4 years) Hudson (2m/1 year)
I am perplexed on this as I was not thinking anyone would offer me this for Trout. Important facts: 1. When a player is on the DL (Beachy), you can sign a replacement for $1m (this can be a free agent or a MiLB player on your roster…..ie, Ventura) 2. At the end of a player’s contract they can be optioned for a price determined by their Yahoo! rank at the conclusion of the season. So at the end of Trout’s contract, he can be optioned for another 5 years at a price TBD….same for all players. A team can only do this with ONE player a year. I would appreciate any help as I am perplexed on both. Thanks, Daniel
Thanks for the question Daniel, have at it gentlemen
