11 Team 5x5 "keep your 5 best" keeper league.
I am contending and within 1st in AVG / RBI / HR / R. I am last in steals and picked up michael bourn a week ago and just traded for crisp to address that.
Right now we play 5 OF, and I have Bourn, Crisp, Ichiro, Holliday, Damon. My CIs are Fielder, Arod, Zimmerman. I have Konerko and Dye - both highly startable but one is riding the bench every game to get crisp and bourn in there every day.
Dye is obviously more valuable than konerko - as far as perceived value and my own valuation.
I am solid in all pitching categories but only have two closers with Broxton and Qualls. 5-6 more saves nets me 4 points in the standings, and i could even gain 5-6 points in saves by year's end with 3 solid closers (and maybe a 4th down the road).
Konerko for Downs makes sense but am I giving up too much??? He also has Jenks / Hoffman / Bell but won't trade any of those guys for konerko. I was thinking of making the trade a bit bigger - Konerko / Harang for Slowey / Bell, but not sure that even helps. I am leaning toward the deal straight up for Downs but would appreciate feedback. WHIR, of course.
