I agree with Fierro on this, the closer tips the scale on taking this trade.

yeah, this one is definitely a tough call... whilst david wright has likely seen his best statistical days go past him, jason heyward seems to be some sort of injury prone and even when he isn't he isn't exactly setting the world on fire. with the keeper angle if he figures like he can be one of your keepers and you want to rack this up to some sort of an anomaly, then it might be worth it.

fernando salas has been nice, but you never know when tony la russa is going to yank him after a couple'a blah games. i was personally amazed to see mitchell boggs have a relatively-bad outing or two, get yanked from the role, have his confidence crushed, and now he's demoted out of the big leagues. salas has been totally maxed out lately as i can't figure him doing much better than he's done, and while the possibility is there for him to have stretches like this in the future, i don't thnk you can count on him to be the best closer in the game for long stretches of time... and then would you keep salas too?

it's a risky move, and i'd have to see your team to know what other option(s) you have at 3B to know what you'd risk losing going forward. this seems to be a lost year for the mets, so while wright may not have a good year this year, he still could rebound to being pretty good... but as i said i think his fantasy godhood days are behind him.

if you have a nice keeper-type 3B who can cushion the blow and you need a closer going forward, i'd to the deal. if you don't and you'd have a cosmic black hole at 3B, then i'd be inclined to not do the deal and hope to strike saves gold elsewhere, then possibly deal wright later on for prospecty-types or something. why i bet you could get brett lawrie and an elite closer for him if lawrie ends up looking pretty good, then again his vaue si gonna be sky high when he comes up.

take a look at mine, would ye?! viewtopic.php?f=26&t=432547

Both guys are beat up, and now wright has another setback. Prior to the setup I would have taken Weight. But itbjust sounds worse and worse. I'd take heyward and the closer I think.

Help?
