Rios for Scherzer(WHIR) *Updated*

Postby rjforlife » Thu Jun 23, 2011 12:16 pm

If any of you have seen my recent trade posts they have centered around Dunn($25), Rios($21), and Scherzer($16). It's a standard 5x5 Weekly H2H keeper, price goes up 20% each season. I have been carrying Dunn and Rios all season, and the trade has boiled down to either

Dunn($25) for Scherzer($16)

or


Rios($21) for Scherzer($16)



So, who do you guys prefer, Dunn or Rios? Do you like either of these deals?

I'd hang onto Dunn still and trade Rios for Scherzer... I know that Dunn is killing right now and costs a little more, but there's so much potential there, and I don't like Rios this year at all. Dunn is only 4 bucks more and has much greater power potential. I love the Rios for Scherzer deal.

I agree 100% with this. Both Rios and Dunn are struggling, but Dunn has the much higher chance to breakout.

My only hangup is that my pitching staff is nasty right now, I don't know what I would do with Scherzer, but the value alone of unloading Rios and reducing cost is enticing.


Felix
Verlander
Wandy
Cueto
Beachy
Bedard
Gio
Bumgarner
Morrow
Chacin


My outfield options aren't exactly slacking though(We do start 5): Braun/Bruce/Ellsbury/Chris Young/Tabata/Ackley/Cuddyer

Your staff is sick...I'd only be reducing costs if you think you can't win this year. However, if you think you have a shot, I'd pass...

Hmm...im 67-41-2, 9.5 games ahead in first. I guess I should pass, I am just sick of watching Rios and Dunn on my bench when I could be picking up Chris Carter or someone more interesting.

As the old cliche saying goes.. if it aint broke.. don't fix it!

If you're in first and chugging along, stash them for now.
You may very well find them turn it around in the 2nd half and carry you to the promise land.

If you are set on making a move, I'd move Rios for Scherzer. But I agree that you may be better off just standing pat.

I think Dunn and Rios both will turn it around, and when they do, they will make your offense that much better. So you should just hold on to them and hope they come around during fantasy playoffs and it can help you win a championship.

OK what if it was Jordan Zimmerman instead of Scherzer? This league will trade so I can move a pitcher and just get value upgrades. Also I may be able to squeeze out a


Scherzer($16) and Domonic Brown($5) for Rios($21). Any better or still hold? I know it seems I am pressing but this is the only team with any interest in Rios and this is likely the one and only chance I have to sell him off. Otherwise I am in for the long haul. Thanks for all the responses, I think I hit most of your links, remind me if I didn't.
