This would improve my rotation, and give me back a budding star in Bruce. While I'm not thrilled about trading Ethier, this may be a decent deal.
Here's my roster and league specs: 12-team, H2H, 6x6 league (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG., OPS. for hitters, and W, SV, K, Holds, ERA, WHIP for pitchers).
Keeper league, we keep 4:
C - Geovany Soto 1B - Ryan Howard 2B - Chase Utley 3B - Michael Young SS - Troy Tulowitzki OF - Andre Ethier OF - Nick Markakis OF - Hunter Pence Util - Josh Willingham B - Brett Gardner B - Scott Podsednik B - Ty Wigginton
SP - Clayton Kershaw, Jair Jurrjens, John Lackey, Clay Buchholz, Jonathan Sánchez, RP - Brian Wilson, Ryan Franklin, David Aardsma, Brad Lidge, Kevin Gregg
So far, I like the deal, but want to see if you Cafers can "talk me off the ledge". Leave a link when helping, so I can help back.
I like the deal. We are seeing a bit more from Bruce which is encouraging. He is a streaky player so the power will come eventually. You're getting Victorino who won't hurt you, he will give you a bit of speed and power. It is a bit rough losing Ethier, but you're getting enough in return to warrant it. I think your pitching is one ace away from being very solid, Harden would be a great addition.
