Hello fellow fantasy fanatics!
With just a few weeks left in the season, I'm in a tight race for a wildcard spot. My shot of making the playoffs is there, but it's not certain. The league trade deadline is Aug. 21. The league is 10 team, head to head. We get to keep five. I've listed below the five I plan on keeping.
So, I got the following offer from another contender for the same playoff spot:
Phillips & Verlander
Ubaldo Jimenez & Kinsler
I've been a fan of Kinsler for some time and so now I'm torn. He's out for now, and you never know how long it'll take for him to rehab, although they're saying he'll be back quick. Phillips has performed acceptably, so I'm not getting killed at 2B.
I like his youth. I might take this deal, and try to move Howard for Braun, to get younger and stronger in OF for next year. But I have no idea if Braun's owner would take it. I'm also a Jimenez fan long term too. UGH. I'm very conflicted.
