Would you do this..... I WHIR!

Postby FBNUT31 » Fri Jun 17, 2011 9:48 am

I am looking for a 3rd closer and steals.

Am I giving up too much here?

Trading Sandoval, Aybar, Boesch for Andrus and Nunez.

To me Aybar is a source of stolen bases but Andrus is quite the upgrade. Aybar doesn't even steal on a regular basis. It seems as if its in chunks, which is most likely due to where he's hitting in the order. I need a regular consistent source as I'm second to last in steals right now and my only other real threat is Mccutchen.

I only drafted Sandoval. The other two were waiver wire pickups. Sandoval is my utility guy as Longoria is my 3B and Lind is my CI. So to me he's expendable. I feel like I'm giving up decent options but even if I'm overpaying (which I'm not sure I am) why should it matter? I'm getting back what I need the most. I'm currently in second and if I could make up some ground in those two caterogies I may be close to having a strangle hold on this league as I have the best pitching and top options in offense.

Any thoughts would be helpful! Thank you!

You sound like you're talking yourself into it, so I don't really know if my opinion will matter. But anyway, I'd do that more for Andrus. He's a top 5 SS in my opinion. But I don't advise paying much for closers. I'd sell Boesch while he's hot.

Aren't there any guys on the WW that could get you steals? You could prob trade a lot less for a guy like Brett Gardner or Coco Crisp.

IN your shoes, Andrus/Nunez > Panda/Aybar...Boesch is a throw in at best. DO IT.
