Bernadina/Walden for Dunn? *UPDATE* WHIR!

Postby chargerss24 » Mon Jun 13, 2011 3:23 pm

I'm in a 12-team roto (standard stat + Holds/OBP) league. I'm currently in first by a wide margin, but I'm starting to lose ground in the home run category. I was initially offered his Cruz for my Shields/Walden, but he has thrown out the idea of trading his Dunn for my Bernadina/Walden. This is about as buy low on Dunn as you can get. Would I be crazy not to accept this?

My team:

C - Hank Conger, Josh Thole
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Dustin Pedroia
SS - Asdrubal Cabrera
3B - Evan Longoria
MI - Ian Desmond
CI - Mitch Moreland
OF - Carlos Gonzalez, Jay Bruce, Andrew McCutchen
U - Eric Hosmer, Justin Upton, Jed Lowrie

SP - James Shields, Zack Greinke, Justin Verlander, David Price, Jordan Zimmerman
RP - Jordan Walden, Ryan Madson, Craig Kimbrel, Jonny Venters

Bench - Johnny Cueto (SP), Chris Narveson (SP), Tyler Clippard (RP), Roger Bernandina (OF)
DL - Kenley Jansen (RP), Buster Posey (C)
Minors - Shelby Miller (SP), Devin Mesoraco (C)

WHIR as always! ;-D

I am fine with this deal although I am not sure how much Cruz is going to really help you. You have some a lot of good power guys who should hit more HR as we get later into the season. I am not that big of a Cruz fan but I also don't think you are giving up anything you can't do without.

I Like this deal for you, shields seems to be coming back down to earth after a great start and I'd be willing to give up walden too. Nelly has huge power/rbi potential if he can stay healthy and is a great addition to most teams.

I like Bernadina/Walden for Dunn. You're okay on saves/peripherals with Kimbrel, Madson, Venters, Clippard. Maybe Francisco is on WW< lots of guys dropped him and ithink he reclaims the role (if he hasn't already).

Dunn for Bernadina/Walden = win in the long run. Dunn has been playing better, and same goes for the wSOX. I think the risk vs. reward here makes the deal worth it.
