Need RP... Do I move Lester? WHIR

Postby BigBlue » Wed Jun 08, 2011 2:04 am

12 Teams
8 Keepers Yearly
Standard 5x5 Scoring


C- Napoli
1B- Pujols
2B- Kinsler
SS- A. Cabrera
3B- Longoria
OF- Ellsbury
OF- Quentin
OF- Pierre
Util- Tabata
Util- Ad. Gonzalez
B- Markakis, Arencibia
DL- Hafner

SP- Lincecum, Kershaw, Lester, Gallardo, Nolasco, Pineda, Zambrano, Harrang
RP- B. Wilson, Lindstrom, Venters
DL- W. Rodriguez, Lidge

I was offered Matt Capps and 1 of either Matt Garza, Trevor Cahill or Mat Latos... Would this trade make sense for me both NOW and in the future???

No. You got a lot of good keepers, so i'm not sure Lester makes your 8?
If you trade Lester, get a elite closer, not Capps.

What about something like Gio Gonzalez or Zach Greinke and Carlos Marmol or Heath Bell?

Btw, as I see my team right now, I see Pujols, Kinsler, Longoria, Ellsbury and Gonzalez. Along with Lincecum, Kershaw, Gallardo, Lester and then either Pineda or B. Wilson since closers are so rare in my league...

Not that you have to worry about it now, but no way is Kinsler i the running. A Cabrera might be.
Yea to Greinke/Marmol, but i doubt you get that.
Bell will get traded. I would pass on him in case he doesn't close.

Latos is not a slouch himself. Capps is a midling closer.

Um. Tempting offer but I'd pass.
