Hector Santiago or Jonathon Broxton WHIR

Postby baegames » Sun Apr 08, 2012 2:03 pm

I have Hector Santiago and Greg Holland. Another team has Matt Thornton and Jon Broxton.

Is Santiago for Broxton a fair trade? Would it be useful for both teams, or is Santiago likely to keep the job, and Holland to take the job, and I should stay put. Or is Broxton worth more than Santiago and I am overshooting.

To clarify (based on some of the responses): I do not own two pitchers on the same team; that is the reason I am considering it. I own Santiago (CWS) and Holland (KC); he owns Thornton (CWS) and Broxton (KC).

I don't trust Broxton any longer. Stick with your team.

If you have Holland, I would stick with Broxton. Even if Broxton loses the job, you'll have the replacement anyway.

I'd definitely stand pat. I don't have a lot of confidence in Broxton. Holland could be closing before long.

I could see this as being a pretty good move. I am not as down on Broxton as everyone else but it could be safe to have both guys for one team. I think Broxton and Santiago could be similar in value. If you don't do the trade then maybe you will have two closers but I personally don't see it happening in the near future.

Other thoughts? I think I'd rather have Santiago (if neither one of us has the backup), but this may not be a bad trade considering the questions in these bullpens. If people still think I should keep Holland and Santiago, I will do so, but that was the main question. Is the downgrade to Broxton worth it considering I lock up Royals saves (rather than taking 70% ChiSox and 35% Royals, which is what I think it is at this point).

I'd keep Santiago, I think he keeps the job longer than Broxton.

For what it is worth, Fangraphs has this write up about Broxton. As much as I don't want to, I am leaning towards dropping C Perez for Broxton myself.

other thoughts? I am leaning against making the offer (based on feedback here). I was leaning towards it beforehand.
