If you need a closer in the least, I would jump all over the trade. If not I would probably just make the trade. Piniero has the ability to pitch just as well as Wolf and you get a decent closer as well. Since its a keeper league, once again jump all over it, Piniero is a little younger I believe. To put it simply I would probably think long and hard and eventually make the trade even if it were straight up (minus Urbina). Keep in mind that the Mariners have proven to be a winning team and the Phils, though they have improved still have an uphill battle. I could be biased though, notice my location. Anyway, pull the trigger. :-)

You say each team keeps 5? So if you get 2 for 1, who do you cut? That basically makes it Piniero/Urbina for Wolf and the cut. Until i know the cut, you cant evaluate it.

Its really a no-brainer. Pinero for wolf is at worst even plus Urbina it becomes Dee-licious. But I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see u dumping Urbina's sorry ass when he blows his 10th save.

if you take that trade does pineiro and urbina count towards 2 of your keepers? If so, who would you be dumping? If it was me I would have done this trade YESTERDAY! sounds like a good deal for you.

That trade sounds ok as long as it doesn't affect your keeper status. Although I think Wolf will be the ace of the Phillies staff this year.

I think Piniero will be the ace of the Mariners staff, unless Garcia snaps back to Ace form. I would do it.

pinero : sinkerball pitcher, only gets better as he gets deeper into games(k's or innings) depending on your league. pitching in safco, nuff said...
after watching him in spring last year i went into my draft saying he was the only person i HAD to leave the table with, paid 15 for him cause one other team was sitting on him late, people laughed at that bid...... not anymore

I jump all over this one. Urbina is a quality closer and Piniero is only getting better and pitches in one of the best parks for half his games.
