Hellickson/Alexi Ram for Shields? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 2:25 pm

I am in a 12-team H2H non-keeper league and am looking to upgrade one of my starters. I already own Starlin Castro, so I am very open to dealing Alexi. Do you think that this offering would be a fair one for Shields?

No, I wouldn't want to acquire a retired middle reliever.

In my opinion you would be giving up too much to get Shields who I see declining in the second half. I would rather have Hellickson and ARam for now.

please help

It is a fair offer, but like the other posters I'm not sold on Shields' breakout as an elite option. I would try to land somebody with a better track record first, but if you beleive in Shields then the deal makes sense.

Thanks for the help on mine!
