Jimenez for Cliff Lee Trade? WHIR

Postby NittanyLions1 » Sun Apr 10, 2011 12:51 am

12 Team H2H POINTS keeper league (no categories). We keep 10 + our 2 minor leaguers each year. See pitching points below.

Hey all,
I've been offered Jimenez and Brandon Lyon for Cliff Lee. Would you do this trade? I am leaning towards doing it and then swinging Lyon for a low-end shortstop/3B (any closer is worth a good amount in this league...and he scored 10th among all RP last year in this league). I have Francisco, so when he takes over the closer role I wouldn't need Lyon anyway. What do you think?

STARTERS
C - Iannetta
1B - Cabrera
2B - Kinsler
SS - H Ramirez
3B - Stewart
OF - Kemp
OF - Rasmus
OF - Abreu
OF - Huff
DH - A Gonzalez
U - Beltran
U - Barton
SP - Lee
SP - Kershaw
SP - Gallardo
SP - Liriano
SP - Nolasco
RP - Marmol
RP - Axford
RP - Nunez
RP - Rauch (I have Fransisco on the DL)

Bench (4 hitters only): Wieters (C), RDavis (OF), Aviles (2B/3B), AEscobar (SS) (update: dropped AEscobar for J Lopez 2B,3B)
Minors (2): Jennings, J Montero
DL: FFransisco, Webb, FGuitierrez

Stick With Cliff Lee. Lyon is a bottom of the barrel closer and you already have depth there.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

Yeah thanks, the more I look at it I am probably much safer keeping Lee. Also I won overall points the first week so why change things. Really, the things leaning for Ubaldo for me was his high K rate, good offensive team, and his youth on a keeper team. But Lee is a bit safer and isn't too old yet either. My main thought was I had a chance to maybe trade away Lyon and pick up another low-end 3B to gamble on. But I got Jose Lopez on waivers last night (dropped Alcides Escobar since Hanley looks to be fine). So unless I need a backup SS, I should be able mix and match with Lopez, Stewart and Aviles at 3B. Not really sure I could get much of anything for Lyon anyway right...

Another thought, if I keep Lee and Webb comes back to anywhere close to his past numbers, then I could eventually trade away Lee for another high end bat at that point.

Make sense?

The fact that it's a keeper league, makes getting Ubaldo a little intriguing. But I think you are better off keeping Lee. Lyon isn't long for that job anyways. I wouldn't be surprised to see Lopez closing by June.

Yeah, leaning towards keeping Lee now.

Anyone else have an opinion?

Keep Lee. Jimenez is hurt...and Lyon is a brutal closer. Not worth it
