How bad is CarGo's injury? Buy Low?

Postby eromano33 » Fri Jul 22, 2011 6:06 pm

I was just offered in my 14 team h2h 5x5 to trade either my Stanton or my Bourn for CarGo. I was thinking about countering with me giving my Bourn and my Wilson Ramos for CarGo and Mauer. Are either of these good deals for me?

Right now I have:

C: Wilson Ramos
1B: Berkman
2B: Cano
SS: HanRam
3B: Panda
OF: Cutch
OF: Cruz
OF: Bourn
UTIL: Stanton
UTIL: Snider
BN: Trumbo

SP: Ubaldo
SP: Hanson
RP: Brian Wilson
RP: Sergio Santos
P: David Hernandez
P: Bobby Parnell
P: Mike Adams
P: Gallardo
BN: Beachy
BN: Bumgarner
BN: Bud Norris
BN: Bartolo Colon
DL: Erik Bedard

I'd probably take the gamble if you're looking playoff-bound. Since he only missed around 4-5 days first time around with the injury, I'd expect him to be back in a reasonable period. Could be that guy that helps you win your league's championship this season.

he's only on the 15 day DL with a strained wrist. He will be fine.

He's the next Beltran when healthy so you have to deal Bourn for him if you can get that. You have enough power and Cargo's multi-cat help will steady your hits your taking in BA. Speed is also very easy to get! What is available for speed btw?

I would drop Bartolo Colon for a speed option (post please)

Rajai Davis is actually available on the WW- similar to bourn but much worse Avg wise. Should I try Bourn + Ramos for Mauer + cargo?

If you want him to close the door on you pretty fast you make this offer. Bourn for Cargo I'd take anyday of the week. It's a risk you can afford to take.

Totally take the gamble.

It allows you to slide Trumbo up to 1B, Berkman into OF and CarGo into your bench.

100 percent Bourn for Cargo. ;-D
