need quick trade advice, will help you

Postby whiteyzacks » Tue Mar 15, 2011 6:13 pm

Hey Guys,

In a head to head keeper league, I currently have Ben Zobrist at 2B. I
only have Chris Perez and Joel Hanrahan as closers (I usually, just try
to barely contend in saves at the beginning of the season and pick up
guys from the waiver wire as the season goes). I am pretty solid with
steals, as I have Braun, Cargo, Reyes, and wright as guys to put up good
steals. I have solid pitching, with Lincecum, Haren, Liriano, Hamels, De La Rosa and Matusz.

I was just offered Josh Beckett and Rickie Weeks for Ben
Zobrist and Chris Perez. Would you take this deal? Is Rickie too
injury prone or worth the gamble?

thanks for the help. I will help you too.

No, you need Perez, you don't need Beckett and I like Zobrist over Weeks.

Help with mine?

Beckett slots in at about your 5th spot with Jorge DLR - Weeks is an upgrade over Zobrist in likely all but SB categories - like you mentioned there is the injury factor, but when he is playing he outperforms all but the top guys. You lose out on a closer in the deal, but if you keep your eyes open (Kuo/Jansen, Fuentes, League, etc) you may be able to grab a closer or pick up those with closing opportunities down the road. I think it also deepens your rotation to the point where maybe you turn around and trade a starter for a need (saves or ?) down the road.

Any help with mine?
