Trade Oswalt? WHIR!

Postby Cream » Mon Apr 18, 2011 5:59 pm

Been offered Michael Young for Roy Oswalt in a very shallow 10-team roto league. I'm considering it because my pitching is deep and the innings limit is fairly low (I'm currently projected at +46.2 on a 1250 max). What do you think?


Here's my team:

C - Martin
1B - Fielder
2B - Zobrist
3B - ARam
SS - Lowrie
OF - Werth
OF - Swisher
OF - Ellsbury
UTIL - Miguel Cabrera
DL - Hamilton

SP - Kershaw
SP - Verlander
RP - Nathan
RP - Burnett
P - Walden
P - Haren
P - Oswalt
BN - Chacin
BN - Hellickson
BN - Shields
BN - Zimmerman
BN - Boggs

Edit: Have a waiver claim in for J. Bruce and dropping James Shields.

That is a pretty strong team, and I always find getting a hitter is more valuable than a pitcher who pitches once a week, maybe twice.


You need some extra hitting from Texas while Hammy is out, I think I wuold do it.




If you could take a look

I agree that you make this deal. Take the bat over the arm. And I believe that young may earn 2B eligibility soon, if I am remembering correctly?

Good point, I meant to mention that as part of write-up. Certainly an upgrade over Zobrist.
