Trade offered for Oswalt

Postby Surfs up » Sun May 22, 2011 12:06 pm

I've been offered Roy Oswalt and Austin Jackson for AJ Burnett and Roy Oswalt.
I'm in the middle in wins but near the bottom in K's.
I'm in first in BA and in 10th in hrs. Neither Gordon or Jackson will help much there. Gordon has come back to earth some .Selling high on Gordon.Although I do like him. I'm a little affraid of Jackson. But has hit better recently. K's don't count thankfully. 5x5 standard scoring. Thoughts? Leaning tword accepting it.

If it is Oswalt for Burnett/Jackson... then I would say no. Burnett has exceeded fantasy expectations this year. Hr's will always be an issue for him, especially pitching in Yankee Stadium. Jackson is highly overrated IMO, not worth an add in most mixed formats. Oswalt could be a top tier pitcher now that the tornadoes have passed...

Not a huge Jackson fan....... You are getting the best player in the deal with Oswalt.

Anybody else? I am a little affraid that when the weather warms up in New York the ball will fly out of Yankee stadium . Plus the Red Sox have a few pretty good left handed hitters that are starting to heat up. Not to mention the other lefties that Burnett faces in that little league park. I realize Jackson isn't anything special. But to get I have to give. I'm thinking Oswalt is better than Burnett and Gordon is better than Jackson. I lose a hitter but gain a better pitcher. I would like to hear what anybody else thinks.
