Axford for Gordon?

Postby 43stunt » Thu Apr 28, 2011 11:45 am

Should I trade closer John Axford for Alex Gordon? I'm thinking about punting saves, wouldn't be giving up many points anyways.

I'd do it. You don't even have to punt saves - just watch for opportunistic pickups (like Rauch, Fuentes, Madson, Santos, Oliver, etc. from this past month).
