Should I pull the trigger?

Postby onthevirg » Wed Apr 06, 2011 10:23 am

So I'm in a 12 team, head to head, 5X5, mixed league. I've been proposed giving up Crawford and Lester to get Cliff Lee, Walden and Adrian Beltre. I've only got one established closer (Feliz - my other two RP are McGee and Bard), my current 3B is P Alvarez and the rest of my SP staff is King Felix, Jonathan Sanchez, Brett Myers and Liriano. If it makes any difference, I traded Adrian Gonzalez for Crawford. Do I pull the trigger?

FYI - Rest of my team: C - Suzuki; 1B - Votto/Lind; 2B - Weeks/Walker; SS - Castro; OF - McCutchen, Quentin, Kubel, Victorino & Hart (DL).

TIA

No. You are giving up the two best players in the deal. I would look to make a smaller deal for a closer or just wait it out and hope to grab one off the WW. There is likely going to be more turnover at the position as the season goes on.

This x1000. You'd be on the losing end of this trade big time.

Thanks guys! Even the dude who proposed the trade was hoping I would be drinking if I accepted the trade.
