Trying To Get Closer(s)

Postby Rmbxr9 » Mon May 30, 2011 5:47 am

18 Team, Points
So in order to make a few moves early on I had to get rid of my 2 initial closers.
I'm just now coming to the realization that I need more Points Per Innings, as I'm projecting way over on my Innings cap.

A closer or 2 NOW seems like the way to go, as they obviously rack up points and don't throw many innings.

I'm thinking 2 things, wanted to get some thoughts.

1. The guy has Morneau at 1B, who is struggling. I've got Smoak/Hosmer/Wallace and I only play 1.
Would this possibly be enough for Kimbrel?

Give: Smoak, Lilly
Get: Kimbrel

2. This guy has no great OFs (starts Jon Jay, and David Dejesus), and not a great SP staff.

Give: Rios, Chacin
Get: C.Perez, Soria

Enough?

That's assuming this guy would part with 2 CP...
If not, would Chacin for Perez work?

I know Rios sucks, but people still have faith in him I guess.

He probably wouldn't do either of those...closers are usually at a premium in deep leagues. From the players you mentioned that you have, Hosmer and Chacin for Kimbrel might work. And it might be worth it depending on the rest of your team....

Help with mine?

Agreed.
Deal #1 won't fly. You can make the offer but don't expect anything.
Deal #2 may go for just one closer. No one will trade two closers.

There's no way that this would happen as well. McClellan got blasted today while Rios has shown nothing all year.

I agree with all that, I guess most of those aren't great deals...

What if I aim lower?

B.Leauge/Mike Adams
For
J.Chacin?

Could someone like Chacin get me a closer straight up?

IMO Chacin for a closer should fly. League would be a good fit, but I'd look around to see who has closers that needs SP.
