Postby casem2k2 » Fri May 13, 2011 11:13 am

Only one team in my league right now is willing to trade for Liriano. Should I make this trade and get him off my team or hold on to him and hope for him to get better.....

I trade: Francisco Liriano

I get: Scott Rolen

I wouldn't do the trade because he is going to get better, but not 2006 or 2010 better. The trade doesn't really help you. You might want to bench liriano for a while, and if he pitches better trade him when he has more value for something that might actually help your team. Good luck.

I agree. It's a tough situation for a lot of Liriano owners out there - his trade value is minimal right now, so he's more valuable to stash on your bench and hope he starts to pitch decently. Rolen would be sitting on your bench if you made this deal, so you might as well let Francisco do that since his potential contributions are much higher.
