Roberts-Suzuki WHIR

Postby baegames » Thu Apr 07, 2011 8:27 pm

6 team AL Only
Ended up with 3 2b, including in my Utility slot. I can replace the Utility with Luke Scott or Mark Trumbo (both on my bench).

Also ended with Jarrod "Will I still be the starting catcher by June?" Saltalamacchia as my 2nd catcher (we start 2).

Offer on the table:
Brian Roberts for Kurt Suzuki

I think that is not enough. How much more do I need? David Aardsma? Edwin Jackson, would replace Luke Hochevar on my team (probably only until Frank Francisco comes back). What type of counteroffer should I make? Do either of those deals make this fair?

With how hot Roberts has started I would look to get something more than Suzuki. Suzuki is a decent C and a nice upgrade over Salty but I would look to get something better if you can. If you can get Jackson that would be great, maybe try Roberts for Jackson straight up.

How about if I could get Napoli for Roberts straight up? I think Roberts is more valuable, but I am not sure.

If you can swing Napoli I'd be all over it. If you're in an AL-only , 2-catcher league, you're really scraping the bottom of the barrel to fill out your 2nd C spot and Napoli has a LOT of pop for being catcher eligible. If you can stand to lose Roberts, and it sounds like you've got the depth, go for it. Value is all relative anyway. If you have too many 2B they're not as valuable because you'll have to start one of them at UTL.

I might consider something involving Napoli or Jackson, but I wouldn't touch Suzuki for Roberts. I've been a believer in Roberts all year and think he will continue to put up solid numbers all season unless he gets hurt (which is definitely still a concern).

Napoli for Roberts...

Catchers are scarce to come by.... and with Roberts it only takes one game for him to break a leg or SOMETHING with him and you're basically left with dropping him off to waivers... too injury prone to take the risk of riding him, trade him while he's hot!
