Trade Lester fir Ellsbury?

Postby rasto21585 » Thu Jun 30, 2011 5:21 pm

I am looking to boost my offense. I am thinking of trading Lester for Ellsbury. I figure I could take the sp since I have Lincecum and Lester. Also this is a 20 team h2h dynasty league. Should I propose this trade? My team is below.

Love the deal, Lester is good but he is not elite and Ellsbury with the expanded power is now an elite talent. Solid deal for you sir.

This a tough one, after Kershaw and Lincecum, you're SP would be pretty weak.....but I'd probably try it. Ellsbury is putting up top 10 numbers.

I really like Tabata, especially in a dynasty, but since you don't have a closer, I might try that other offer too. Martin is a non-factor for me.


Help with mine?

i like it. Ellsbury has a good track record to back up his great play too. Other than being hurt last year

Do you think I can afford to break up my trio of lester lincecum and kershaw to upgrade my offense?

in a 20 team league your pitching is still excellent even without Lester. most teams wont even have a single top 10 SP and you will still have 2.
Is Ellsbury LF eligible in this league?
even if hes not its still a huge upgrade over Rasmus in CF.

actually after i accepted that deal id try to package Rasmus with one of your weaker SP for a better SP, further lessening the blow of losing Lester.
you would still have Coco Krispie to backup in CF too.
or try to improve your INF or UT situation - but Rasmus should be a pretty good trade piece



can you please comment on my keeper situation:
