Jennings trade, what to do? WHIR

Postby SumG » Mon Jul 25, 2011 2:44 pm

Should I do this deal?

Give Desmond Jennings, Max Scherzer
Get Dan Haren

12-team 6x6 H2H league (OBP, K:BB) EDIT: I should note it is a redraft league as well

Leave a link and I'll try to help.

Well, if it's not a keeper, I'd absolutely do it. What Jennings has done recently is best-case scenario.

If it's a keeper, I'd maybe be slightly concerned, but still you're getting Dan Haren. In my mind, this is a no-brainer. A 1.00 WHIP? Low 3 ERA? 120 K's?

Scherzer has come no where near that this year, and I don't see Jennings being SO good that this trade is slanted.

I'm taking Haren, and then adding an OF from waivers to replace Jennings.

Haren's 2nd half woes are well documented, but it's not like he's ever turned into a below average option at any point. Even though he was one of my preseason favorites, Scherzer has been below average for much of this year. Worst case scenario this deal works out with Scherzer and Haren posting pretty much identical stats (they are remarkably similar pitchers), and all you really lose is Jennings. While I love Jennings long-term, the chances of a Braun/Posey-like breakout are slim and he's more likely to give you Adam Jones production at best. That's useful, but the downside is also significant for a guy who was hitting below .280 in the minors this year and similar production can likely be found on the ww. The name just won't be as sexy (Nyjer Morgan?).

I would definitely take the trade, especially since it isn't a keeper league.

2nd half woes?

Haren tonight: 7.2 innings, 3 hits given up, 1 run surrendered, 10/2 KK:B...lowered his ERA almost a whole tenth

stupid Walden blew the save, but that is fantasy ace material right there.

Scherzer and Jennings for a fantasy ace? YES.
