Capital City Ironmen trades away
Roederer, Cole (former HLR Legend)
Organized Chaos trades away
Kelly, Merrill (Former HLR Legend) ($26) and $5 Budget
HUSTLE’S TOXIC $.02
If you want to be a yearly powerhouse like me, you have to make yearly powerhouse moves. This was a powerhouse move for….nobody.
Capital City made his farm worse, and it was already in a dire state. Chaos acquired 3 prospects from Bailey here and they are all just ok. Duran got some hype early last year and then was just a guy, his ceiling his probably Nick Markakis, and Markakis is practically free as is. Roederer is probably the best of these 3 prospects for no other reason than he appeared on farms of teams who are yearly powerhouses. If Roederer’s takes an extra step, he could be a regular corner OF bat, which is nice I suppose. Aaron Ashby is a pitcher. These guys don’t excite me much, but they are guys who are perfectly ownable in a deep league like this. And they are indeed owned.
The return for Bailey is Merill Kelly and $5. I like Kelly, and I think his contract is reasonable. He pitched well down the stretch this season. Ideally you’d want him for $10 or less, but in auction he probably goes for about the $26 of his current price. Maybe with innings pitched instead of starts, Kelly is worth less because of a sub 8 k/9. The $5 is nice for Bailey if he actually focuses in at auction for once.
I don’t know, this one’s a head scratcher. I think Chaos would have probably been better off holding Kelly and Bailey is probably better off keeping some prospects for a rainy day. Instead I wrote some words.
Congrats on THE RUSH of a trade.
