Pujols and JJ for ...
12 team H2H points league. League is in year 4 of 6.
I am currently 0-3 (after finishing 2nd the last 2 years) with rough starts from Pujols and Josh Johnson (my fav player)
I have other managers asking for trades every day. I don't know what is fair value becasue I LOVE JJ. I would also prefer not to trade Pujols becasue he is part of my team name (ARodinmyPujols) ... but I can give that up
I have a gm that would love to get his hands on those two.
I GIVE: Pujols and Johnson
I GET: Hammels and Votto
is this close? who wins?
12 team H2H Points
FWD (8) / DEF (4) / G (2) / BENCH (4)
skaters: G, A, +/-, SHG, GWG, SOG
goalies: W, L, GA, SV, SHO
I prefer Cole Hamels & Votto... (but, see end of post, too)
In a H2H league, you are aiming to have the best team for the H2H playoffs.
I think there is a better chance going with the younger/healthier players.
I break it down like this.
On a scale of 1-10:
9.0 Pujols (Healthy) + JJ (Healthy)
8.0 Votto (Healthy) + Hamels (Healthy)
Odds that those players will stay healthy all year:
75% Pujols + JJ
90% Votto + Hamels
9.0x75% = 6.75
8.0x90% = 7.20
It's risk-reward math.
I'll take the safer bet.
All that said... fantasy baseball needs to be fun.
I (personally) won't part with my favourite player for a slight-trade-improvement.
If it was my team... with my favourite player, I'd be keeping him.
I'd do that trade even if it was last year.

It's decent and I'd do it. Votto is somewhat more consistent and JJ is a big injury risk anyway.
