I'm in a 12-team A.L. only roto league with keepers. Two years ago I traded for Greinke (and Gil Meche for Grant Balfour when Balfour looked like he might close for Tampa). Greinke has been unreal since and I expect him to be among the dominant few starters in baseball.
But in my league, with keepers and long-term contracts, Greinke is entering the final year of a contract and will go back to the auction next year. Brett Anderson and Gordon Beckham can be had for this year AND next year, with Anderson at the same salary as Greinke ($10 in a $260 league) and Beckham at $8. So the trade is essentially one year of Greinke for two of Anderson and Beckham.
My starting pitchers behind Greinke (just keepers -- auction in a couple of weeks) are Scherzer $2; Matusz $1 and Hughes $3. I have a strong, cheap group of hitters to which Beckham would add - Wieters, Morales, Andrus, Scutaro, Lind, Choo and Borbon, and all but Andrus I have for this year and next. (all the pitchers too but Greinke).
Would you make the trade? Why or why not?
