we are in our 5th year 12 team roto , keep whole team with ops and holds, im 9th of 12, 2nd place last year i get braun, ludwick, broxton, give d wright, pedroia
i have howard,, utley, rollins, chris davis,markakis, abreu,huff, doumit, c guillen, polonco
hamels, garza, bedard, happ, brian wilson,motte, carlson, cj wilson, dan meyer,, garland, del le rosa,
rauch, medders, niemann
no good free agents in outfield except perhaps ankiel, hermida,
i get a closer,, a guy as valuable as wright and perhaps an overrated fantasy player in pedroia because i have utley starting. Chris davis is struggling but i do need the closer and braun and start ludwick in the u spot pedroia was playing
Hmm... Although Broxton does have a lot of value this year, closers tend to come and go, even the great ones. There are a select few that stick around for a while but most closers only have a few good seasons and then they fall of the face of the planet or just lose their stuff. Ludwick doesn't look very impressive this year and he's not showing any signs of having a very productive career. Bruan is basically the only player you would be getting that portrays potential and consistency. If everything I mentioned doesn't bother you and are mainly looking to win this year then I would go through with it. If not, I'd just leave the team as it is.
well pedroia aint doing crap either and as far as closers, id say broxton is good to go for ten or more years. He's good, he's not like a tampa closer. i have no outfielder currently playing in my other 0 spot. Not like id ever start pedroia over utley
To me, it is Pedroia and Wright for Broxton and Braun. Braun and Wright are pretty close to equal, with a slight edge to Wright over the course of the whole deal. To me, Broxton is going to be a solid closer for years to come. Closers are risky, but he looks a lot more like a Mariano Rivera than someone who is going to not be around in a couple of years. Pedroia is very good, but a little overrated I think. I would probably do it, but it is a very close deal. But I tend to not like Pedroia much compared to most people.
