Traded Humber for Venters. Thoughts? WHIR

Postby BlueJaysFan » Fri Jul 15, 2011 10:37 am

I just dealt Humber for Venters, was it a good move? I know Humber has been great so far, but I don`t trust him for the ROS. I like Venters, cuz he`ll help my ERA (worst category, 6/12), and is by far the best no-closing RP.

It`s a standard roto league. I`m currently leading by 7 points.

I like this trade for you, though if you've already done it, I'm not sure I see the point in asking about it.

What is available in FA?
I'd cut Hernandez.

Sorry for not helping you, my computer crashed I just got it fixed. Lucky I got a friend to set my lineups while it was getting repaired.

It's no problem, need some help with a different thread though if you got a chance.

My waiver for Trumbo (someone dropped him) just got processed. I dropped zito. I also added Karstens for Drew, since he's out for the year. There are a few ok options left but I wouldn’t mind keeping Hernandez until he loses his job. But, if you think any of these are better options I can make the move:

Batters:

LoMo
Ackley
Pierre
snider

I don't think I really need any, since I already have Hafner and now Trumbo sitting on my bench.

Pitchers:

Bastardo
Danks
Lowe
Collmenter
Gee
Peavy
Isringhausen

Luebke I like him when you end up dropping Hernandez. Bastardo is good for ratios and what not and there's no for sure if he won't close.
