Trade review - roster help - WHIR

Postby SleuterBomber » Sun Apr 24, 2011 12:24 pm

I just made the following trade last night:

I give: Austin Jackson + Jonathan Broxton

I get: Jayson Werth

My team (12 team ESPN standard H-to-H):

C - Carlos Santana
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Dustin Pedroia
3B - Kevin Youkilis
SS - Jimmy Rollins
2B/SS - Howard Kendrick
1B/3B - Billy Butler
OF - Justin Upton
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Jayson Werth
OF - David Murphy
OF -
Util - Travis Hafner
BN - Carlos Pena

P - John Axford
P - Joel Hanrahan
P - Mitchell Boggs
P - Frank Francisco
P - Max Scherzer
P - Ted Lilly
P - Wandy Rodriguez
P - Jordan Zimmerman
P - Justin Masterson
BN - Michael Pineda
BN - Jorge De La Rosa
DL - David Aardsma

Also, should I cut bait on Carlos Pena? I'm not a big fan of his but I wouldn't mind waiting until he caught fire to hopefully trade him for an OF. I am currently short an OF, but there are not many names in FA worth picking up.

Some FA OF's of interest:

Jerry Sands
Willy Bloomquist
Ryan Roberts
Cameron Maybin
Michael Brantley
Carlos Gomez

Other FA's of interest:

Freddie Freeman
Erick Aybar
Danny Valencia

Any of them worth dropping Carlos Pena for?

Depending on how speculative/risky you want to go, Sands could be worth a pick up -- though it's equally possible he could flame out given that it's his first shot at the bigs.

Otherwise, I'd just stick with Pena. His power will come around. He crushed a couple against San Diego earlier in the week that would have been HRs if not for the wind at Wrigley.
