Add Matt Harrison? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Fri Mar 30, 2012 2:27 am

I drafted Matt Harrison and dropped him last week. He's looking stellar this spring. Drop anyone to add him back?

I dont see anyone worth dropping. Maybe Buehrle, but thats a tough one. I have John Danks... I wonder if Harrison is worth picking up and dropping Danks.

It's a thinker because Danks gets poor run support, had a high era last year and like Harrison pitches in a hitters park.

So did you ever do the Jennings or Kennedy deal?

Here is last spring.
Out of the top 25 in OPS, probably only 8 or 9 were worthy in regular season.

Update on those:

The Jennings got hardballed me wanting Romero and Anibal for Jennings, Santos and Farnsworth. This guy is like the bipolar trader. One minute he wants nine of my offers and the next he's desperate to get a deal done bc nobody else will and he'll occasionally throw me a juicy offer. So I am keeping on him with that.

I gave the Kennedy guy a deadline of thurs night but he did not respond. I will give him a chance in the morning. The funny thing isnthat the Kennedy guy is supposedly getting a lot of offers from the Jennings guy who had a mancrush on Kennedy guys Hosmer. Jennings guy also made more offers when he heard I was trying to deal with Kennedy guy.

Dare I offer Kennedy guy something crazy like Pedroia, Romero and Jackson for Kershaw and Cuddyer?

If you can get Kennedy for Romero/Jackson, great.
But i would not trade Pedroia.
You already have 4 pitchers on your bench.
I don't like Cain on your bench, and i don't care for Jackson at UT.
I would look for a hitter for UT.

Remember when I said Jennings dude changes his mind a lot? He sent me an email saying he's still interested in getting a deal done. What angle should I take?
