Trade Marmol for Haren? WHIR

Postby footballisbetter.com » Mon Mar 28, 2011 11:08 am

I was offered Haren for my Marmol. Should I accept this?

We start 9 pitchers a week, any combo of SP/RP. Closers usually go for a premium in this league.

Here is my staff:

Lester, Hughes, Kuroda, Hellickson, Colby Lewis, Marmol, Paplebon, F Cordero, R Franklin, Hanrahan

I would take Haren over Marmol. I think you need the starter.

Heres mine:

I'd do this too. I think you have enough depth at RP where you can afford to lose Marmol for Haren.

FWIW, I also offered another owner my F Cordero for his Marcum.

Which one would you rather do? I won't do both.

Before I answer this I need to know the size of your league and the rules (ie. Roto what are the categories).

If it's a standard 12 team 5x5 for example, given your rotation, I would keep Haren. Totally depends on those factors.

I would do both the Haren and Marcum trades. A trio of Papelbon, Franklin, and Hanrahan is enough (unless your league really favors RP over SP) and your pitching staff is a whole lot deeper with both Haren and Marcum. As far as I'm concerned, you can never have enough quality starters.

Yea, if given standard 5x5 settings, you'd still be set on RPs if you trade away Marmol and Cordero...you can never have too many stellar SPs.

Thank you everyone. If the Marcum owner backs out, should I offere Cordero for Morrow?
