Rollins/Scherzer for Tulo. Did I give up too much? WHIR

Postby GardnerRunsRampant » Wed May 25, 2011 3:37 pm

12 team Keeper league (Allowed 10 keepers, no limit on years kept):

Trade - I gave up Rollins and Scherzer for Tulowitski

Trade Goal - Willing to give up a little bit more in production this year to obtain an elite, young SS keeper for years to come. Leading my league with an undefeated 7-0 mark and by a healthy total points difference. Pitching is abundant on waiver wire to take a hit with losing Scherzer.

*C - McCann(27)
*1B - Fielder(27)
*2B - Cano(28)
*3B - Youkilis(32)
*SS - Tulo(26)

Hate to break to you but yeah think you gave a bit too much. I honestly think this hurts your pitching staff a bit. Even without tulo, your batting lineup I thought was pretty good already. Not sure if I would have done that.

I would do this trade in a heartbeat. Tulo will be an elite shortstop for years to come, while Rollins is practically at the end of his career. Scherzer is good, but I wouldn't qualify him as an ace just yet. He is still showing inconsistency.
