LEAVE A LINK AND I WILL RETURN ALL HELP, ON MY CAFE HONOR.
10 team keeper mixed H2H. Standard ESPN H2H cats.
I give Yovanni Gallardo and Nelson Cruz.
I get Ichiro and Randy Johnson
My other OF include Braun, Kemp, Soriano, Mike Cameron, Elijah Dukes and Jeff Francouer
My other SP include Billingsly, Lilly, Javier Vasquez and John Danks.
I'm really on the fence on this one. Like Gallardo's potential, and also Cruz. But having an OF of Braun, Kemp, Soriano and Ichiro is really tempting, and I think I have the SP to absorb the loss of Gallardo.
I might be able to get Kevin Slowey in place of Johnson, but I don't think he would go for that.
I would be on the fence regarding this one as well. I think number of keepers have to factor in. Gallardo and Cruz would be two to keep if you have 7-8 keepers, and I'm not too high on The Unit anymore. I think an OF of Braun, Soriano, Kemp and Cruz ain't too bad. Ichiro is as steady as they come, but he seems more of a specialist to me now. Unless you have zero SB coming out of your infield, the added SBs going from Cruz to Ichiro may just become overkill. No need to win the category by a wide margin.
I would say nay on the trade. Gallarado is a lot better than Johnson. I think he'll come around and end up being a top 20-25 pitcher this year. You would also giving up power with Cruz. I'm not too high on Ichiro as a fantasy OF just because all he gives you is batting avg and some sb. Even if it wasn't a keeper league, I would say no, but being in a keeper makes it an easy choice. Cruz is going to slow down a bit, but its not like he's a scrub.
