Interesting offer in keeper league... WHIR 100%

Postby billycent » Wed Jul 20, 2011 10:08 pm

Offered David Wright and Gaby Sanchez for my Ryan Howard. Essentially I just swap Howard for Wright as a keeper at a much shallower position, and Gaby would shore up my utility spot for this season as the trio of Dunn, Wiggs, and Willingham aren't really doing it for me. Roster below, as stated we keep 8 (5 hitters and 3 pitchers). If I made this trade, assuming no 2nd half collapse is in store (so far so good) I'd almost certainly select Morse as my 5th keeper alongside Braun, Kinsler, Wright, and Pence. What does anybody think... leave a link and I got u right back.

If Im reading correctly you say trade Howard for Wright and Sanchez? If so I love that trade. I feel Gaby will give you similar production maybe without the complete power of Howard but then you also get Wright, like you say great keeper. I would do it.

It's an OK offer but Im not sure I'd make that deal if you're in it to win this season.

Howard usually busts out in the 2nd half big time and Sanchez seems to be slowing down (hasn't hit a HR in a month now and his avg has dropped about 20pts). I'm just not sold on Wright having a good 2nd half. Is he willing to up his offer?

Check mine?

He would also upgrade me from Santos to Valverde... so I'd receive Wright, Gaby, and Valverde for Howard and Santos. Santos hasn't looked sharp lately and you never know what Ozzie is gonna do... not to mention my closer situation is sketchy at best. I am a little scared of Wright aggrivating the injury and being shutdown though.
