Postby ECG77 » Sat Mar 26, 2011 5:47 pm

I'm being offered Heath Bell for Matt Garza. Would you?

I would say no, looking at your staff. I don't think you can afford to give up a starter for a closer (you already have closers), unless you had a deal lined up to immediately swing one of your closers for a decent starter to replace Garza.

I would normally say yes but Garza is one of your best SP. Only way I think this works if you play a lot of closers and RP to try and lock up ERA, saves and WHIP and then spot start a couple of pitchers for some W. Not a route I would go but it could work.

agree with the above posters. If you had a better staff, I would say yes. But, you need Garza more than another RP

I could do the RP low ERA thing but we have to login I believe 900+ innings for the season. I will just stick with Garza for now.
