Markakis and change for Bell ...

Postby Skimo77 » Sun Apr 10, 2011 9:46 pm

So i'm in a basic 12 team 5x5 6 player keeper format and my roster is :
C: Kurt Suzuki
1B: Youk
2B: Rickie Weeks
SS: Hanley Ramirez
3B: Aramis Ramirez
OF: Ryan Braun
OF: Matt Kemp
OF: Nick Markakis
UT: Ike Davis

OF: Rajai Davis
OF: Alex Gordon
OF: Vlad Guerrero
C: Wilson Ramos

SP: Cliff Lee
SP: Yovanni Gallardo
SP: Wandy Rodriguez
SP: Tim Hudson
SP: Ervin Santana
Sp: Jordan Zimmerman
RP: Neftali Feliz
RP: Jonathan Broxton
RP: Tim Collins
RP: Clay Hensley
RP: Mitchen Boggs

The offer is potentially me giving up Markakis/Guerrero/Rajai Davis and recieving Heath Bell/Michael Bourn. This is a very deep league and highly competitive for closers. What do you think?

So its essentially Markakis and Vlad for Bell...interesting deal, Id probably take it if I were you as those two OFers are replaceable.

Do it without a doubt. Why do you need to even post this? Bourne is one of the best CF stolebase guys in the league and Bell is arguably the best closer in the game. All you are losing is 1. Markakis (and I personally like him) who is a guy that will never hurt you but wont single handedly ever help you. 2. Guererro who is 40 something? 3. Davis who is playing for Toronto now (HR city) as opposed to OAK (SB city). New locations with new philosophy is scary.

Do the trade! Please reply telling us that you did it.
Be the change you want to see in this world.
