Rasmus or Gardner?

Postby Crimedogg32 » Fri Apr 01, 2011 1:22 am

Would you trade Brett Gardner to get Colby Rasmus based on my team? I like that Gardner is now batting leadoff but I think I might have went to speed heavy in the draft and looking for some power.

12 team H2H 5X5, standard categories

C- Carlos Santana
1B- Joey Votto
2B- Ian Kinsler
3B- Chipper Jones
SS- Yunel Escobar
OF- Matt Holliday
OF- Jay Bruce
OF- Jacoy Ellsbury
U- Brett Gardner
U- Brian Roberts
BN- Chone Figgins
BN- Lance Berkman

SP- Josh Johnson
SP- Roy Oswalt
RP- Jonathan Broxton
RP- Joe Nathan
P- Max Scherzer
P- Chris Perez
P- Colby Lewis
P- Jose Contrares
BN- John Lackey
BN- Erik Bedard
BN- Anibal Sanchez

I would take Rasmus over Gardner any day. He doesnt have the runs/steals potential but tons of upside in a strong lineup


help on my trade is appreciated

I go with Gardner. The Yankee lineup isn't too shabby. Plus Garner will hit for a higher average. I think Gardner gives you one more catagory Average, Runs and Steals. Look around your league. maybe you can help somebody and they can help you.try trading Gardner for help where you are weak.I like Rasmus but of the two I go with Gardner.

straight up I like Rasmus better......base on your team I still like Rasmus over gardner. If.....and its a big if.....ellsbury and roberts stay healthy they will both provide you with steals. As well as figgy on your bench. Make the trade, if you need steals later on in the year im sure you will be able to trade away some power. Get the better player though if you have the chance right now!

Does the Holliday injury change anyones mind? Not only is he on my team but also does this improve or decline Rasmus' value?
