Jacoby Ellsbury. WHIR!!! post ur ?'s

Postby dukefan » Wed Mar 28, 2012 5:40 pm

I'm in a 7 player keeper head to head points league. Jacoby Ellsbury was ridiculously good last season, and I believe he won't be able to match his performance. I have him, and am thinking about trading him. Who would be a good semi young player I could target by giving up Ellsbury. My roster is below.

C - Carlos Santana (CLE)
1B - Freddie Freeman (ATL)
2B - Robinson Cano (NYY)
3B - David Wright (NYM)
SS - Starlin Castro (CHICUB)
OF - Carlos Beltran (NYM)
OF - Jacoby Ellsbury (BOS)
OF - Giancarlo Stanton (FLA)
UTIL - Carlos Lee (HOU)
P - Clayton Kershaw (LA)
P - Zack Greinke (MIL)
P - Tommy Hanson (ATL)
P - Brian Wilson (SF)
P - Jaime Garcia (STL)
P - J.J. Putz (ARI)

BN - Max Scherzer (DET)
BN - Jesus Montero (NYY)
BN - Jemile Weeks (OAK)
BN - Torii Hunter (ANA)
DL - Ryan Howard (PHI)

J Upton, Cargo, A Gone and Votto seem like good places to start.

In a keeper, no way would i trade any of them for Grandy.
I guess you could try, but you probably are going to have to set your sights lower.
