This is for a 12 team H2H, 5x5 Cats, positions are little different you have C,1B,2B,3B,SS,OF then IF,CF,LF,RF then 5 SP and 2 RP with 11 Bench.
The trade is my Jason Werth RF,CF and Sean Rodriguez 2B,CF for Colby Rasmus CF and Brandon Webb SP
Here is my complete roster: Batting: C: Posada 1B: Billy Butler 2B: Ian Kinsler 3B: Ryan Zimmerman SS: Jimmy Rollins IF: A Rod 3B LF: Carl Crawford CF: Grady Sizemore RF: Jason Werth RF,CF OF: Jay Bruce RF Adam LoRoche 1B Derek Lee 1B Jason Bay LF Sean Rodriguez 2B,CF Yunel Escobar SS Peter Bourjos CF Micheal Brantley CF Kevin Kouzmanoff 3B
Pitching: Max Scherzer Ted Lily Bronson Arroyo Wade Davis Randy Wolf James McDonald SP Jonathan Broxton JJ Putz Ryan Madison Serigo Romo RP
Should I do this trade? I like Rasmus and there is some risk with taking Webb but I am willing to take it, and I would be losing two CFs. I have thought about trading a first baseman, but he has Prince Fielder and Justin Smoak. What should I do?
Webb is a risky pick, as Kimbo said above. Is there a healthier SP you can acquire? I like Rasmus as someone who can really break out this year (nice power/speed combo)...trading Werth + ok guy you don't really need for Rasmus + upgrade at SP is a good idea though. IMO, Werth's numbers go down a little bit due to lesser lineup and Nationals Park (pitcher's park) not being Citizen's Bank (hitter's park).
The pitchers he will probably trade would be Garza, James Shields, Ricky Romeo, and Brian Matusz. Because I doubt he will trade Jimenez or Price and I don't want Johan Santana because of his injury. So any of these pitchers better then others? I am leaning Garza because now he is in the NL and will face better lineups compared to what he was facing in Tampa with the AL East.
I dont see Rasmus as an upgrade over Werth. They will probably have about the same HR and SBs, but unless Rasmus can put it together with both lefties and righties he could hurt your batting average more than werth.
Webb may be able to make it back this season, but he is going to be very limited and I am guessing will probably have to take a week off here and there and be on a very limited pitch count. He just missed two season with a shoulder injury and needs to be brought back slower. Very little upside for this season.
Single season league I would hold out for better. Keeper League I would do that trade for Rasmus with his future upside.
