Acquire Harper or Pass?

Recommended Posts

Harper owner looking for SP and wants to deal him for either Greinke, Paxton or Berrios. Would you deal any of those three or stick with what I have and pass on Harper? Was considering only because this is a keeper league and since it’s H2H I typically stream SP anyway, so I hold more value with bats then I do pitchers.

I'd gamble trading Paxton for him to start, or Berrios if you don't have a stomach for occasional blowups. I'd rather Paxton mostly because his health is a question mark every season. Can't promise you he'll be the Bryce of old, but he's better than anyone on your bench and gives you some flexibility with Muncy in terms of position.

Berrios>Greinke>Paxton (mostly due to injury concern).

This is how I'd rank them as well.  And I'd move any of them for Harper (and I don't even like Harper that much).

Return the favor?

Give up Berrios, and then Paxton and Greinke in the order. Greinke is a workhorse and durable compared to Paxton, eventhough Paxton probably is the better pitcher. Looking at your team though, you don’t really need outfielders, but SP although this definitely is a good trade. So you can go ahead with the trade and then flip one of your  other OF for an ace.
