Need to trade a closer. Help. WHIR 100%!!

Postby OldEnglishZ » Wed Apr 06, 2011 10:50 am

AL-only / 5x5 / 10 team/ Dynasty League / Roto

Brett Anderson
Nick Blackburn
Jeff Francis
Brad Penny
Jonathan Papelbon
Matt Thorton
Chris Perez
Jordan Walden
Koji Uehera

Clearly, I need some SP help and I have two guys coming back very soon.

Phil Hughes for Thorton
Phil Hughes for Chris Perez

* It is a dynasty league and Chris Perez is almost 10 years younger but Thorton will probably have the better season this year..

Do I pull the trigger on one of them since Hughes's value is real low right now and hope he wins 13+?

If this is a full dynasty with a full compliment of keepers, then I can see this as being a pretty fair trade for Hughes. He still has the upside to be a solid number 2 in the future, and he displayed some amazing pitching last year. The detriment is he is pitching in the AL East, and in Yankee stadium. My philosophy on closers is you better get what you can from them when they are hot, and that includes in trades. Especially in dynasty league. Please check this out

I like this trade. Thorton is gonna be a good closer for a long time, but Hughes is no slouch himself. He could easily get 13+ wins with a Yankee lineup like that.
