Trade Question... Is Pedro Alvarez worth it?

Postby Atlanta Alan » Mon Jan 31, 2011 2:41 pm

I was offered this in my 5x5 National League only League. Should I do this? Is Alvarez worth it?

I get: Pedro Alvarez ($5).
I give: Evan Meek ($5) and Chris Johnson ($1).

I know that Pedro Alvarez is highly touted, but if Meek is the closer, that will certainly be a plus at that salary. Chris Johnson could be decent as well but I would appreciate your take on it.

Thanks for the help!

I will do my best, :-D

Personally I think Hanahran is going to close this season, and Meek will remain the setup man. Thats just me.......but then again new Manager (Hurdle) anything is possible.

Saying that, I still think you should jump on this deal, the major upside Pedro "Eltoro" Alvarez has over.....Johnson in that department.

PULL THE TRIGGER.

PLEASE HELP ME:

I'll take Pedro over any could be closer and most actual closers. The guy can hit and RP is way to volatile.
