Team Set for Opener or Make This Deal? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Tue Apr 03, 2012 2:45 pm

I recently made a trade that nets me Crawford and Fister for Valverde and Colby Lewis, meaning I will add a player from the WW when Crawford is DLed (same goes for BJ Upton). That issue aside, is my team in good shape to start the season or should I accept this deal? Note we keep only 6 per season...

I give: Jon Niese
I get: Chris Sale


12 Team H2H Daily with 6 Keepers Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means a keeper entering this season
Stat Categories: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

MY TEAM (pending recent trade)[/b]

3B Miguel Cabrera*

i think i would rather have Niese. I just don't know what you can expect from Sale this year.

I'd gamble with Sale's upside over Niese.

i say with the pitching you have(which is very good) i would take on sale.
you have a great top 3 in halladay, hamels and ian and then 2 solid pitchers in beachy and fister(career year this year)


niese doesnt help expect in k, which sale will do fine in that cat. and also sale has the potential to be a top pitcher, who noes could be the next david price.
