Would you do this trade?

Postby Asfan4life09 » Thu Jul 21, 2011 11:51 am

I was offered Ryan Zimmerman and Colby Lewis for Adam Lind? Thoughts on this trade? I'm sceptecal as to whether Zimmerman is still playing hurt and if I should do this trade.

I think you roll the dice with this deal. Even if Zimmerman isn't all the way back, I like it.

The 2011 version of Lind is somewhere between 2010 and 2009...meaning that he's decent, but not outstanding. The power potential is still there, but it's still not all coming together.

Lind is on the same tier as guys like Freeman, Trumbo, and Hosmer, so if one of them is on the wire, you're basically getting Zimmerman and Lewis for nothing.

Who would you have to drop in order to do this trade? That's another important consideration. Who do you currently have at 3B, who's your UTL and your hitting bench, and what do you have at SP?

I'm thinking along those same lines and think I will pull the trigger on this trade. I run a 5x5 roto 15 team keeper league (teams can keep up to 4 players with a 2 rd penalty).

I have Youk at 3B so Zimmerman would just replace Lind at my CI. The waiver wire is thin with such a deep league. I'm last in wins and but close to several teams. I have Kershaw, Cain, Norris, Danks, A. Sanchez, E. Santana, and Myers as my starters. I'm thinking Zimm and Lind will be a wash for the rest of the year and Lewis will make my pitching that much better.
