I'm in a Keeper League 5x5 categories, 10 teams, Roto Scoring
I'm in 3rd place, 16.5 points out of second and 17.5 points out of first
One of my weakest areas is in saves.
SS- (empty for now)
UTL-Miguel Cabrera (only 1B eligible)
I have 26 saves on the year (most teams are nearing 40, some already over 40 saves) and as a result, I only have 2.5 / 10 points for saves. Since Joakim Soria just returned, this will surely help, however, I still need a lot of saves to make up ground and would like to add a third closer.
The trade would be:
I give up my 3B Mark Reynolds and my UTL Shin-Soo Choo
I get P Mariano Rivera and 3B Pablo Sandoval
If I made this trade, I would then make two follow up moves:
(a) Drop LaTroy Hawkins (who is a temporary solution), Add Matt Wieters. Wieters is my prospect and I have control of him regardless of whether or not he is on my team. Wieters would be my utility player and essentially replace Choo's spot in my lineup.
(b) Drop Clayton Richard (after tonight's start), Add a SS since Jose Reyes had a setback. I will try to add Marco Scutaro once he clears waivers, or Jhonny Peralta, Christian Guzman, or the likes until Reyes/Bartlett return.
The pros to this trade is that with K-Rod, Rivera, and Soria, I have three of the best closers and this will surely help my team in gaining saves. The cons to this trade are that I'm giving up a lot of offense in Reynolds and Choo. While Reynolds and Choo are far from the best fantasy assets, they certainly help me in scoring and driving in runs.
Thanks so much for your help! WHIR I promise 100%
