REASON FOR MY TRADING - I have a bad feeling on Berkman this year, I drafted him 2nd overall. I am looking to solidify my already outstanding pitching even moreso.
PROS AND CONS - (Pros) Adding Oswalt to my staff of CC,Peavy,Gallardo and RJ is pretty wicked. I have Delgado as a fill in for Berkman and I have A Rios to plug in that spot (utility role) in case Delgado goes down on the DL. (Cons) Am I jumping the gun too early on Berkman? This trade makes sense to me and like I said I have a bad feeling with Berkmans production this year, I think my backups are more than sufficient and I would get more out of Oswalt plugging him in my 5th pitcher slot rather than my weekly changes of filling that spot and getting shelled constantly.
MY ROSTER - 12 team points league C----Victor Martinez 1B----Lance Berkman 2B---Robinson Cano 3B----Chris Davis SS----Asdrubal Cabrera OF----Nick Markakis OF---Adam Jones OF----Corey Hart Util---Joey Votto OF----A Rios BENCH 1B---C Delgado BENCH SP---CC Sabathia SP---Jake Peavy SP---Yovani Gallardo SP---Randy Johnson SP----J Garland (this is the spot that keeps getting rotated every week) RP----T Hoffman SP----John Smoltz BENCH SP -- K Escobar BENCH Stat Category Value R (1)1B(1)2B(2)3B(3)HR(4)RBI(1)SH(1) SB(3)CS(-3)BB(2)IBB(-1)E(-1)CYC(10)IP(2) W(5)L(-3)CG(5)SHO(10)SV(7)ER(-1)BB(-1) K(1)SVOP(1)RW(-2)NH(20)PG(30)BSV(-4)
1. Berkman will turn it around and put up decent numbers. Have patience. 2. Delgado is hurting as well 3. You could get a much better pitcher for Berkman 4. You're already deep in SP, why do you need more?
