I would hold off personally, I think you can grab a better OF than Ellsbury if you look to deal a top closer like Marmol.

I'd pull the trigger.

Ellsbury obviously isn't going to continue to hit for power but he's an excellent source of runs, avg, and SB. Closers are a dime a dozen. You obviously managed to grab Walden off the WW. Similar opportunities will present themselves as the season progresses.

I guess some of it depends on how your league values saves. Maybe try packaging Gordon and one of your other closers for Ells?

I am quite low on closers and you have some dependable ones..... I flip for Ellsbury.

This is tough one because I have mixed feelings on both. Gun to my head. I do it.


Help out this Cafe brother???
