Do I trade a top closer for a top Starter? WHIR 100%

Postby TheBambino » Sun Apr 24, 2011 8:56 pm

Hey Guys

Need desperate help with this one...

Ive been offered either Kershaw or Verlander
for
Neftali and Abreu

What would you do? Im good at playing the closer pickup game so I can find a closer if I need one later.. I think! haha I just grabbed Madson today!

Please see my roster below to see if this would make sense..

Thanks guys and leave a link..

I like Kershaw for you, but it's really a coin flip between him and Verlander.

Do the deal ASAP.

Do the trade, both are aces, hard to pick one over the other.

I say do the deal as well, and if a dynasty league I take Kershaw if redraft I take Verlander (though there is not a big difference in either situation. Please help me http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=428458

can't go wrong with either option; with neftali hitting the DL as well, makes this a no brainer. take your pick between them and enjoy the results.


here's mine:

Agreed with the above posters - this is an easy accept for either pitcher, though I prefer Kershaw to Verlander.

ACCEPT! Aces are called aces for a reason.
