Walker is not in the same league as GA. YOu can try to convince yourself and the rest of us that he COULD be the next Gagne, but c'mon, your trade is a joke and you know it...otherwise you wouldn't be trying so hard to convince us the opposite.....just my two cents.
Would you trade Gagne straight up for GA?
Ya, that trade is pretty weak but alot more analysis would be required before I would cry foul on the deal. Closers are treated like gold in leagues.
Is GA the 5th outfielder on someone's team? Was this trade accepted right around the time that walker had rung off 6 saves in a row without allowing a run?
I think Walker is a bad trade, by an ill informed owner too, but if he has a stacked OF and is desperate for saves I can see owners giving up extra to land him.
This sounds like a classic buy low/ sell high scenario. One that most cafe owners would love to make, and would reject in a sec if their position was reversed.
