Meh. I;d pass. don't much care for Wandy as a 'hold all season guy'. I think you could do better streaming. I'd keep the speculative saves for now.

I'd take it...I've always valued starters more than RPs, and he can potentially boost more of your categories, plus Rodriguez could lose the job if he's on a short leash and doesn't pitch well (Brad Lidge/Tyler Clippard are both solid options that they could use if things don't go well).

Thanks for the help with mine!! :-)

Sure, but if Wandy is below replacement level then it doesn't make sense at all though. And he is below replacement level, so...

Who are some FA options in your league? If Wandy isn't better then anyone the FA then why even consider this trade?

It's a 12 man league. There's should be no question that streamers can beat his season production.

I was thinking that Wandy was a decent return for Henry, but in your opinion, what type of pitcher would you target for him?

Some FA's available are:

Dirty Sanchez
Capuano
Niemann
Nicasio
Matusz

...not a whole lot actually

I'd take Wandy, he's underrated imo and Henry probably won't have the job for long if he has it at all.

I'd lean towards taking it. Adding qs makes this a starter-friendly league. Wandy isn't anything tremendous, but he's not bad. The BBM rankings for last year put him as the 54th-best pitcher. He hurts you in whip, but otherwise he's solid.

It is a risk, though -- if Storen has a setback, which is always possible w/ pitcher injuries.

Btw, are there any weekly limits in your league? Transaction limits, # of starts limits? Just worth considering in terms of streaming.

No, Henry won't have the job for long. Dude is strictly a vulture saves guy. I'd keep him for those saves and then start streaming favorable SPs off the wire. I want those saves plus streaming SPs way more than Wandy's mediocre season stats.

Weekly limits might change my mind here too.
