Trade Alex Gordon? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Tue Apr 10, 2012 3:03 am

This guy in my league likes Alex Gordon. Given his struggles should I look to move him while he still carries sme of last year's value? Anyone worth asking for on his team to improve mine?

Austin Jackson is awesome and Alex Gordon sucks.. it's obvious based on these 3 games. Do the trade straight up...

its a hard fit IMO. you both have similar teams (strong infield and front end SP) I like "buying low" on Hanson, but Gordon is of more value. Id hang tight unless he blows you away

Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I prefer Gordon over Jackson. Jackson will come back to earth.And soon.He's going up against Matt Moore tonight. My guess is he doen't put a ball in play.

I don't think your teams match up very well for a deal. I would give Gordon more time to come around.

please help and read my last post in my thread. Thanks.

I wouldn't let 4 games change my opinion on what I was expecting out of Gordon in 2012.
