thoughts on a trade

Postby muddwindy » Fri Feb 24, 2012 12:37 am

I am in a keeper league. I own (haha) Beckett, Price, Weaver and C.J.Wilson. Now... I need more closers . Another owner wants to trade Jose Valverde for Wilson. Good bad???

I stick with CJ. If you are quick on your toes you can pick up 2-5 RP's every yr and give up nothing for them. Example, Motte, Santos, Walden and even Kimbrell was a split time in ATL when camp broke.

If you wish to get Valverde, trade him Beckett if anybody. Hang onto Wilson in this case. You could try to dangle Wilson to the Kimbrel or Papelbon owner, but I'd stick with the starter.

Nah. Keep Wilson. Closers are not worth keeping in most leagues\formats. The turnover rate on them is way too high and they are way too erratic year to year to invest keepers in generally. Depending on your format, scrounge out a closer off the wire or get one cheap in the draft.

wilson for valverde would be pretty bad for you. the only closer i'd even consider trading wilson for is kimbrel. i wouldn't deal beckett for valverde either btw.
