im thinking about a trade and i need some opinion. my roster is attached in my sig - it's a 12 team 5x5 league.
get: c. jax/king felix or shields give: youk/heath bell
now i like having 3 solid closers, but i could also use a SP. im also hurting for power and im not sure that giving up youk is the best idea. then again he had a career year last year, does he hit .300 25/110 again, or does he revert back to .285 17/85?
what do you think of this deal and if you like it, which pitcher would you chose?
thanks, leave a link.
c: martin 1b: butler 2b: s sizem ss: andrus 3b: e long mi: a escobar ci: of: kemp of: werth of: rios util: byrd bn: s rodrig, l mill, y escobar, c davis
SP: lee, f liri, j sanch, c bill, marcum, w davis, matusz, latos, s stras RP: pap, c perez, fuentes
I'd hold off from making the deal. While you can certainly use a pitcher, your offense could use a little help too. I think giving up Youk, one of your best hitters, would be quite the blow. For what it's worth, though, I'd definitely take shields over King-Felix; the win potential makes a huge difference.
i hear you guys about youk, but before his huge breakout last year he was a .285 17/85 hitter. guess you're buying into the career year. i also see conor jackson as capable of putting up .300 17 90 himself.
