Goldy/Altuve trade + rank hitters; *100% WHIR*

Recommended Posts

16 teams, H2H, Yahoo, lots of categories

Hitter cats: AB, R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, PO, A, E, AVG, OBP

Pitcher cats: APP, IP, W, L, CG, SV, ER, HR, BB, K, HLD, TB, ERA, WHIP, K/9

So if you look over the cats carefully you can see that high-contact, high-OBP (low K high BB) guys are more valuable than conventional HR or K guys.  Similarly, elite RPs are far more valuable than SPs.


I just dealt:

Goldschmidt, T Anderson, B Peacock


Altuve, Treinen


My team is now:


C: Suzuki

1B: Votto

2B: Altuve

3B: Castellanos

SS: Simmons

OF: Marte

OF: Benintendi

OF: Cespedes

Util: Moran

Util: Kendrick

B: M Gonzalez


SP: C Morton, S Newcomb, R Hill

RP: Vazquez, Giles, Treinen, C Green, Edwards, W Smith (in SP spot), Gohara (in SP spot), Melancon (DL)


QUESTION 1:  How did I do on the trade?


QUESTION 2: I need to work on my UTIL spots.  Please rank the following ROS:


C Moran (3B - Pit)

H Kendrick (2B/OF - Was)

M Margot (OF - SD)

I Kinsler (2B - LAA)

S Schebler (OF - Cin)

J Pederson (OF - LAD)

J Jay (OF - Stl)

D Fowler (OF - Oak)

B Nimmo (OF - NYM)


Leave a link.  I will likely respond within a couple hours.  Thanks!

Ya did good, I think your analysis was spot on regarding cats. I would have made that trade.


I'm not going to rank them all, but just tell you that is list is pretty much what you'll see at the top of my 12 team league wire right now so those are some good options.  I'd ride the hot hand.

I like it! You got the best player in the deal. I am thinking about trying to trade for him myself. 

Knowing you received Altuve in return, makes me think my initial discussion with team who has Goldy, may ask for more than I offered. If that is the case, I think I am going to pass on him. Do I think Goldy will turn it around? Yeah, but like others have stated, his HR & SB may be way down this year, which hurts his value a ton. 

Very good trade for you!


As for the 2nd question, I agree with @Trifecta and just ride the hot hand.
