Elvis Andrus/Bud Norris for Danny Espinosa/Stephen Drew WHIR

Postby Woolly the Mammoth » Wed Jun 22, 2011 9:23 pm

12 team 5x5 standard Yahoo league. I need steals and strikeouts and I have an excess of power.

I get Andrus and Norris and give up Drew and Espinosa. Kinsler is my 2nd baseman so I don't need Espinosa, but he's playing so well right now, am I giving up too much for some steals and Ks?

I would probably do it. Even know you may be able to get a little more with you giving Drew up. He is not bad SS. Norris is big on K's. Espinosa has pop but he must kill you with avg.

Anybody else have any thoughts? Can I count on Andrus for 20+ steals during the second half of the season?

I think 20-25 if he stays healthy. If you're lacking in steals, Micheal Bourn I found is often undervalued and you may be able to get him without giving up Drew.

I don't hate the deal, but I think you could get a slightly better K SP than Norris if you're giving up Espinosa. I think the gap between Espinosa and Norris is much larger than that of Andrus and Drew.

I would keep Andrus and Norris. Norris is a K machine and Andrus will steal a lot more than Espinosa and Stephen Drew combined. Drew has always been overhyped and Espinosa is good, but none of them are as good as Andrus.

Help me please.
