My "Need" for Alex Gordon

Postby nhorton123 » Mon Apr 18, 2011 6:35 pm

I'm from the Omaha area and always enjoyed watching Alex Gordon (Kansas City Royals) while he was playing his college ball at Nebraska and every time I make it down to watch him in KC he is my obvious favorite. The question I have is I really want Gordon on my fantasy roster and am willing to give up "something" to get him. I want that fantasy excitement while watching him play. I've considered offering up Jason Heyward, am I as nuts as I think I am ?

Here is my roster.

C Miguel Montero, Ari C
1B Aubrey Huff, SF 1B, OF
2B Jonathan Herrera, Col 2B
3B Alex Rodriguez, NYY 3B D
SS Erick Aybar*, LAA SS
2B/SS Maicer Izturis, LAA
1B/3B Michael Young, Tex 3B, DH
OF Jason Heyward, Atl OF
OF Ben Zobrist, TB 2B, OF
OF Omar Infante, Fla 2B, 3B, OF
OF Logan Morrison, Fla OF [Recent News]
OF Marlon Byrd, ChC OF
UTIL Denard Span, Min OF S

Bench Carl Crawford, Bos OF
Bench Chase Utley*, Phi 2B
DL Kendrys Morales*, LAA 1B


Pitchers
P CC Sabathia, NYY SP
P Ubaldo Jimenez*, Col SP
P Heath Bell, SD RP
P John Axford, Mil RP
P Ryan Dempster, ChC SP
P Leo Nunez, Fla RP
P Carlos Zambrano, ChC SP, RP PP
P Zach Britton, Bal SP

Bench Chad Billingsley, LAD SP
Bench Bronson Arroyo, Cin SP

If you give up Heyward for Gordon, your OF is going to be terrible.

I'd dangle Michael Young first. If no bite, see if you can get a package deal including AGordon for ARodriguez.

Yes, your nuts.

I think offering Zach Britton would be a better offer. Maybe even through in a bat and then pick up something in FA.

Help with mine?

This is good advice. Chances are that Young and Gordon will be a push from here on out, but Young has had a nice start for you. Offer it up.
