Stubbs for Mo Rivera...WHIR guaranteed

Postby jasonpm311 » Fri Jun 17, 2011 4:21 pm

Should I do this trade? It's a 12-team H2H mixed keeper league.

I give: Drew Stubbs

I get: Mariano Rivera

I have Ichiro sitting on my bench most days (yes, my offense is pretty well set), I am doing OK in the HR/RBI area with guys like Bautista, A-Rod, and Cano, along with some other solid hitters, and I have my five keepers set at Cano, Bautista, A-Rod, Felix, and Price. I could use the help in ERA and WHIP, along with the saves and consistency as my closers are Kimbrel, Putz, and Salas. What do you guys think? Would you do it? Post your links so I can help in return. Thanks!

You need a closer but I personally wouldn't trade Stubbs for one. Any chance he'd take Ichiro + for Mo?

I don't think so. I actually got this counter offer when I proposed Ichiro and Putz for Mo and he wanted no part of it. Our league uses OBP and SLG instead of AVG, which is one reason why I want to trade Ichiro and also why he's less valuable.

I would do that trade. You have your 5 keepers set and since Ichiro is your replacement for Stubbs, it seems like a good trade to me.

Ichiro was great place to start.... Stubbs though is making me a little gun shy.... Are you needed an elite closer or a consistent one.... INstead of bucking up for Mo.... I'd lower my sights and get another wtih Ichiro.

I would not do it. Stubbs is worth more than Mo, especially with OBP and SLG. You have 3 solid closers. I don't think you need one. An upgrade to Mo isn't a bad idea, but not at the expense of Stubbs. I think he's a top 25 hitter. If he won't take Ichiro and Putz for Mo, then I'd move on. That is a good offer. I woudn't give up more than that. Offer those 2 to someone else. Or better yet, I'd try and move Salas instead of Putz. I think he's less stable than Putz.
