    Posted: 17 Jul 2013 at 3:24pm
Alright I am in 1st place of my 12 team H2H 5 player keeper league. Its a points league with different scoring, I will tell you the scoring if need be, but pitching is stronger than hitting and usually wins the league.

My pitching is Kershaw, Sale, Samardjiza, Colon, Parker, Bailey and 1 spot starter; we get 7 starts a week.

Teams behind me have lineups like Felix, J. Zimmerman, Harvey, Teheran, Garza, Cingrani.

Or Darvish, Price, Moore, Gio, Wheeler, Skaggs and Lohse.

Or Wainwright, Bumgarner, Weaver, Bucholz, Gallardo, and Eovaldi

Or Verlander, Hamels, Latos, Dempster, Cashner, Beachy, Peavy and Miley.

Does my pitching stand up to those other teams to win in a one week playoff system?

The trade I am pondering with Goldschmidt, who is a $24 keeper, is:

Goldschmidt $24, Myers $2, and a SP (not sure which one yet) for Cliff Lee $28, Zack Grienke $25, Hyun-Jin Ryu $1 or Mike Leake $5 (his choice) and Kendrys Morales $5.

Remember this is a keeper league and the team trading me those SPs is out of the playoff hunt and looking for the best possible 5 keepers. He would be making his keepers Goldschmidt $24, Miguel Cabrera $44, Wil Myers $2, Hyun-Jin Ryu $1, and Hisashi Iwakuma $8. Very cheap 5 keepers.

My keepers will be Machado, Trout, Kershaw, Sale and was Goldy now can be Kipnis or a SP. Am I trading away my future with Goldy? I am desperate for championship, I can taste it, but the other teams are making trades making their teams a lot better. Am I overreacting?

My Roster:
C Victor Martinez
1B Paul Goldschmidt
2B Jason Kipnis
3B Manny Machado
SS Starlin Castro
OF Mike Trout, Starling Marte, Nate McLouth, Wil Myers and Nick Markakis (start 3)
Util David Ortiz

SP Clayton Kershaw, Chris Sale, Jeff Samardjiza, Homer Bailey, Bartolo Colon, Jarrod Parker, Alexi Ogando and Brandon Morrow
RP Joe Nathan and Mariano Rivera

I know that is long, but my trade deadline is coming up soon and if I need to do this I have to get it done now.

Nothing will solidify my championship but I wanna put myself in the best shape possible for the win.

Myers is pointless really... My staff would be Kershaw, Sale, Lee, Greinke, Samardjiza, Colon and Bailey/Parker. Thats amazing. Its extremely enticing... why do you say keep him?

He is one of the best young players in baseball and he is $2. Will take Myers for 2 over Greinke or Lee at their prices.

My keepers are Manny Machado at $7, Mike Trout at $24, Clayton Kershaw at $36, Chris Sale at $11 and another player possibly Kipnis at $21, Samardjiza at $16, or any of the players I get in the trade. Wil Myers will not be a keeper for me this year. Again I only get 5.

I take Myers over Kipnis or Samardjiza. Save 19 on the Myers to Kipnis swap. I keep your other 4 for sure.

How'd this turn into a keeper question for me. I said I am trying to sell out for the championship this year. If I win one I am okay with searching for another keeper in the offseason.

I guess I'm just looking for analysis, other opinions. Not just keep Goldy and Myers.

You're in first place right now, so obviously you're doing something right. Giving away Goldy at $24 is something you will regret for the next few years. What's so wrong with your staff that you need two more starters? You can win right now with what you have, don't just look around at everyone else making deals and force yourself to make one. Try dealing Kipnis/Myers for 1 elite starter instead.
