Trade Sergio Santos for Anthony Rizzo?

Postby rasto21585 » Sun Jun 12, 2011 3:36 pm

In my 20 team h2h dynasty league I was offered Rizzo for my Santos. I think this is a solid trade for me because I already lose saves every week. Anyway should I accept this deal? Team is below.

Dynasty League? Yes, please.

In almost every situation where a closer can be traded for a stud offensive force, (and it will not hurt dramatically in the current year), you make the deal in a dynasty league.

Especially in the case where the closer in question is:
(1) in their first year with the job at a position with tons of turnover
(2) has been struggling lately
(3) plays for a Manager who has never kept his closer consistently. How many times did Bobby Jenks lose and then regain his job?

Especially with Santos struggling the last week and many suitors waiting behind him for the job. It's an easy accept.

I agree. Rizzo has looked good thus far, and Santos is no lock long term. I'd definitley do it.
