Nelson Cruz for James Shields..worth it??

Postby soundcheck70 » Wed Apr 04, 2012 10:17 pm

Is this a good trade? 2nd time around playing fantasy baseball. My league has 10 teams and counts points by using R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, L, SHO, SV, R, K, & ERA stats on a weekly basis. My team is as follows:

C
Matt Wieters

1B
Eric Hosmer

2B
Brandon Phillips

3B
David Wright

SS
Troy Tulowitzki

OF
Justin Upton

OF
Hunter Pence

OF
Nelson Cruz

Util
Shane Victorino

BN
Ryan Roberts
(2B,3B)
BN
Brett Gardner
(OF)
BN
Gaby Sanchez
(1B)
BN
Jayson Werth
(OF)
BN
Kurt Suzuki
(C)
BN
Carlos Pena
(1B)

SP
Stephen Strasburg

SP
Madison Bumgarner

RP
Mariano Rivera

RP
Cory Luebke

P
Brandon Morrow

P
Francisco Liriano

P
Trevor Cahill

P
Sean Marshall

BN
Alexi Ogando
BN
Edinson Volquez
DL
Michael Pineda

As you can see, my pitching game could use some reinforcements and I think my OF's are pretty solid. Plus, I had Cruz last season (he was one of my keepers) and I'm not too sold on him because of his injury history. Is this trade worth doing?

Agreed. Not enough.
