Hey guys, I just wanted to get your thoughts on a trade offer I received. Normally I would jump all over this deal (5 player keeper too) but I need the pitching. I still think I'm going to do it, I can find pitching later and adding stud in the making in Votto would be great.
12 team, 5 player keeper 6x6 roto (R,HR,RBI,SB,K,OBP/W,L,SV,K,ERA,WHIP)
C - G.Soto 1B - A.Dunn 2B - D.Uggla 3B - E.Longoria SS - J.Bartlett OF - Ichiro OF - N.Cruz OF - N.Swisher UTL - D.Lee UTL - C.Jones BN - N.Reimold BN - M.Brantley
SP - D.Haren SP - J.Jurrjens SP - M.Buehrle SP - Scott Baker SP - J.Cueto SP - S.Strausburg RP - A.Bailey RP - R.Soriano RP - F.Francisco RP - M.Guerrier
Thanks guys! Leave thoughts and a link and I will do the same!
Yeah it would be, though I like the potential borderline ace/#2 upside of Jurrjens/Baker/Cueto/Straus with the steady vet in Buehrle. I know it creates a hole but I could use another top 30 keeper and it's early enough to find another pitcher.
Just seems like it's too good to pass up for this year and beyond.
Any other thoughts? There are some decent stopgaps available for now and if I add Votto, I could trade one of D.Lee, Chipper, Swisher...really any OF/1B for another SP.

In a redraft league, yes, Haren should get more. But in a keeper league, you'd still look for more from Haren? Especially in a league that uses OBP?
This isn't meant to be combative, just trying to dig a little deeper. I could move Dunn to the OF, then trade one of my OFs (Swisher, Reimold, even Cruz Ichiro DLee if I can get good value) for pitching
