Smart Move, or Russian Roulette?

Postby felixthecat011 » Tue Mar 29, 2011 4:21 pm

I have Andrew Bailey in a 10 team (5x5, non-keeper) league and a trading partner who's an Oakland A's fan. Should I deal him for Papelbon? I'm nervous about him being hurt, and even though Bard and Jenks lurk, as a Red Sox fan, I think Paps lasts the year.

Should I do this?

Personally, I think it's bad form to trade an injured player unless the other owner is aware of the injury. So I would make sure of that first. If he's still willing to trade you Papelbon for someone who is on the DL, then do it.
