BJ Upton for Werth?

Postby pangbones » Sun Apr 10, 2011 12:58 pm

I have been offered J Werth and J Uribe for BJ Upton and J Walden. I have adequate depth at RP, but Walden could be a stud. Also, losing Upton would really hamper my SB's. I'm also looking to upgrade at 2B, so hopefully Figgins will be replaced soon. What do you think? It's a 6*6, H2H league with OBP instead of avg, and K's are a category too. I would just drop Uribe and pick up the flavor of the week on the wire.


C - Mauer
1B - Votto
2B - Figgins
SS - A Ramirez
3B - McGehee
OF - Pence, BJ Upton, Quentin
Util - D Young, Morneau

DL - Longoria, Peavy

Bench - Ortiz, Reynolds

SP - Lester, C Lee, Marcum, J Chacin, G Floyd
RP - Axford, Hanrahan, Walden

Bench - Richard, Pineda, Nieman, I Kennedy, Nathan, League, Capps


10 Team, 6*6 (OBP and K's for hitters and L's for Pitchers), H2H, Keeper (3 players, at least 1 hitter and 1 pitcher)

I wouldn't do it. I'm pretty big on Upton this year so I'm not sure if I'd even trade them straight up. Losing a closer in the deal tips the scales too much.

Thanks with mine.

Yeah, I got to agree with not doing the deal. I like Upton as much as Werth on your team as well. Sounds like you're thinking about it, but I would concentrate on trading an OF or 3B for an upgrade at 2B.

Yeah stay put, I like Upton a lot this year too... off to a good start. Add in the fact that you lose a closer and I don't like it at all. Thnx for the help on mine.

I wouldn't do it either, you really need the SB.

Stay with BJ. The offense is anemic right now, but he is still having a great year. When Longo comes back and some of the other guys start hitting his numbers will get even better. I really think BJ is in for a nice year and finally shows his potential.

I'm gonna have to agree with everyone else. I'm really high on BJ this year so I'd stay put.

Help with mine?
