Rasmus for Thornton...WHIR

Postby mj85 » Sat Mar 26, 2011 9:55 pm

This sounds like a no brainer to me but I was offered Rasmus for my Thornton. I think they are pretty comparable straight up but I have a bevvy of closers to offer from. he actually offered me Rasmus + D Lee. Should I try for a bit more?

Here is my roster in a 10 team 7x7 (standard plus total bases, OPS, losses and HR allowed). We keep 9 each year.

C - M Weiters
1b - A Gonzalez
2b - I Kinsler
3b - P Alvarez
ss - H Ramirez
of - N Cruz
of - J Bruce
of - BJ Upton
of - J Tabata
ut - A LInd
ut - K Youkilis

p - M Thornton
p - J Hanrahan
p - B Lyon
sp - F Liriano
sp - C Hamels
sp - C Billingsley
sp - J Sanchez
rp - J Soria
rp - C Perez

bn - C Utley
bn - G Sizemore
bn - J Kubel
bn - R Nolasco
bn - J Lackey
bn - E Santana

dl - S Strasburg

I'd definitely trade Thornton for Rasmus, because as you said you have plenty of RPs and adding just helps your OF. And as Hootie said getting Rasmus in this deal is a steal. I'd be careful pushing your luck as you might lose the deal, if he does put up Rasmus and D. Lee
for just Thornton hit accept as quick as possible and don't look back.
