I can't get this one done. Don't know if I even should?

Postby kaiser » Sun May 01, 2011 10:25 pm

Leave a link for help gladly returned.

I give Ichiro, Carlos Marmol and James Shields

I get Curtis Granderson, Alex Rios and Jose Valverde

I feel like I am taking myself out on a limb by trading away Ichiro's consistency, but I need some run production and power. I'm also counting on Rios returning to at least some semblance of his pre-season value.

Should I make this deal?

My roster:
Ten team 5x5 roto nonkeeper

C Mike Napoli, Tex C, 1B
1B Joey Votto, Cin 1B
2B Robinson Cano, NYY 2B
3B Kevin Youkilis, Bos 1B, 3B
SS Jed Lowrie, BOS SS
2B/SS Asdrubal Cabrera, Cle SS
1B/3B Mitch Moreland, TEX 1B
OF Shin-Soo Choo, Cle OF
OF Ichiro Suzuki, Sea OF
OF Jose Tabata, PIT OF
OF Sam Fuld, TB OF
OF Ryan Roberts, ARI, OF
UTIL Justin Smoak, SEA 1B
P Justin Verlander, Det SP
P Carlos Marmol, ChC RP
P Max Scherzer, Det SP
P Brandon Morrow, TOR SP
P Hiroki Kuroda, LAD SP
P Jhoulys Chacin, Col SP
P Matt Capps, MIN RP
P Joel Hanrahan, Pit RP
P Mitchell Boggs, STL, RP
Bench Jorge De La Rosa, COL SP
Bench Darren Oliver, TEX RP
Bench James Shields, TB SP
DL Josh Hamilton, TEX OF

Yeah I'd do it too, but I would try to shop Tabata or fuld first. Might be able to get some power with them instead of Ichiro.

I made the deal as posted. I tried Tabata and Fuld, but Tabata is injured and Fuld just doesn't have the name value yet.

I'm taking a chance, but I'm satisfied.
