I think I really like this deal. What are your thoughts? Thank you in advance. WHIR
12 Team: 2nd year of Keeper:Head to Head C: Weiters 1B: Berkman 2B:Phillips SS:Scutaro 3B:A Rod OF:Kemp,Manny,Victorino UTL:Cuddyer BN:Helton,V Wells,Hafner SP:Beckett,Volquez,Romero,Floyd, Gallardo,Cook,Dempster,Hanson RP:Cordero,Street,Franklin, Howell
I like this deal you will have to wait on Manny for a little bit but it will pay off in the long run. Plus Weiters just got called up today he will be starting on Friday. Plus Guzman is having a real good season. I'd say do it....
I would do the deal as well. I think Michael Young is playing a bit above his head right now (at least power wise) and though you'll have to wait for Manny, I'd imagine he'll be worth the wait. I think Guzman is an acceptable stop gap type SS, definitely play the hot hand on the wire though at SS too, and I really like Wieters even right off the bat, not stud numbers, but top 10 fantasy catcher numbers right off the bat I think.
Manny for 3 months + a replacement level OF for 1 month is better value than having a Dye or Vlad. He easily makes up the difference between both Young and Guzman AND Martin and Wieters. To top it off, Wieters could easily out-perform Martin for the rest of the year. Gambles like this (for Wieters) paying off are what it takes to win leagues, but even if Wieters doesn't live up to the hype this season this trade is an easy win for you. Hope it doesn't get vetoed.
