Dunn with Rios (WHIR) *Updated*

Postby rjforlife » Mon Jun 06, 2011 12:36 pm

I can get Brown- $5 and Scherzer- $16 for Dunn-$25, Rios- $19, and Wandy-$6


I am fed up with Dunn/Rios and would like to move them for a quality player now, and keeper in the future. Is this deal good enough to pull the trigger on? Drop a link I'll try to help.

whoa....thats a steal, not only in production but moneywise as well.....andrus has taken an even bigger leap this year and looks like a top ss...rios is garbage and IMO will never be decent this year.....dunn im not sure about but i would take andrus over him in a heartbeat...and i like scherzer over wandy

He also offered:

Rajai Davis+Scherzer for just Dunn/Rios. Is that a better option or should I go for the deal with Wandy in and upgrade to Andrus or Brown? Rajai is $6

Both are awesome deals for you ... If you are fed up with SS production I'd take the first. However, if you want to retain Wandy for your staff then the second is really nice for you as well.

I'd definitely consider the 1st deal. Andrus really turning into a good player and it helps to have the protection in front and behind him. 2nd deal I wouldn't do. You already have speedster in the OF. No need for more IMO.

He pulled the plug on Andrus, but left the Brown side on the table.

So:

Rios($19)/Dunn($25)/Wandy($6)

for

Brown($5)/Scherzer($16)


A player goes up in price by 20% each season, so Brown stays very cheap the other guys price keeps going up. What do you guys think?

That's a tough one...I think Rios is a very good bet to have a good second half, he's been terribly unlucky this season. I really like Brown and have him in a dynasty league, I'm just worried he might not provide much this season. If you're willing to take some lumps with him for a year then I say go for it, you're getting the better pitcher, Dunn has turned into an almost useless player and Brown's ceiling is pretty damn high with a low price tag.

Go for the first deal if you can! Great win for you, money and keeper status aside IMO. I've never been a Dunn guy, and Rios is, well, done. Go for it. Thanks for your help on my David Price question.
